It's clear we face a vicious government. The election result in May shocked the nation as the Conservative Party managed to gain a slim majority in Parliament. They remain committed to further cuts, to selling off our public services and attacking ordinary people's living standards.
But, since the election, we've also seen some of the biggest mobilisations against austerity and against this government yet. The People's Assembly has grown rapidly and mobilised hundreds of thousands against austerity. From over a quarter of a million people marching on the 'End Austerity Now' national demonstration in June, to the week of action against the Conservative Party Conference in Manchester, plus co-ordinated days of action, public meetings, rallies and protests the length and breadth of the country. The election of Jeremy Corbyn as leader of the opposition is another indication that people have had enough.
It's time for everyone who wants to see a change to come together once more and decide how we create a movement that can stop austerity in it's tracks. Weather you've been central to the organisation, or if you just want to find out how you can get more involved, join us on 5 December.
