Theresa May branded a 'threat'

18595172_10156273001484966_6207273790831361709_o.jpgA nationwide billboard campaign has been launched across the country accusing Theresa May of being a 'threat' to our public services in the run up to the General Election.

The People's Assembly has hired over 40 billboards, mostly in key marginal seats, which display a large picture of Theresa May with the words 'I am a threat' followed by 'to your local hospital, to your child's education, to your standard of living, to your job security, to your pension, to you peace and security'.

We are launching a crowdfunding drive alongside the billboard campaign so we can organise more advertising in the last week of the election campaign. We want to put up more billboards, adverts and organise actions across the country to expose the truth of Tory policies. We're taking back space that's usually only reserved for the big business and corporations. The more money we raise the bigger impact we can have, but we only have a very short time to make this happen and we've now used up every penny we have! The Tories get massive donations from a few millionaires but we have the strength of our numbers. Please donate! 
Sam Fairbairn, National Secretary of the People's Assembly, said:
"Theresa May has made it blatantly clear her attitude to ordinary people in, what can only be described as, her manifesto of misery."
 
"She is a threat to everything we rely on from cradle to grave. The crisis in the NHS was created by the Conservative government and they're doing nothing to address it. She's snatching free school lunches off infants while her plans to restructure our education system will leave schools without proper funding. University students are being strapped with lifelong debt. Employers are allowed to get away with paying poverty wages on insecure or zero hour contracts and she wants to rob people's houses from them & their family cover the costs of looking after them in old age."
"In one of the most important elections for generations we want to expose the lies behind Theresa May's soundbite rhetoric. We'll do everything we can to make sure Theresa May and her government for the super rich isn't returned to Downing St."  

Please get down to one of the billboards and take a snap and share online with #ToriesOut

    Wonderful…congratulations to whoever got the ball rolling …I have mooted the idea at my group- some time ago – but it is great that it was funded centrally- coz local groups could not afford it..( well some could have perhaps) .respect to the activists involved..√√√

    Get a psychologist on board! The poster should read Vote Labour rather than state what not to do: this can be confusing for passing motorists/those who just catch a glimpse and may end up voting Tory! Wishing you well :)

    Hi. Your spreadsheet doesn’t include the Westminster details… can you let me know please. I was also interested if you were able to make downloadable versions available to disseminate? Many thanks. :)
