John McDonnell MP (Shadow Chancellor), Francesca Martinez (Comedian & Activist), Dr Rory Hicks (Junior Doctors Campaign), Yannis Gourtsoyannis (BMA Junior Doctors Committee), Christine Blower (National Union of Teachers), Dave Ward (Communication Workers Union), Natalie Bennett (Green Party), Steve Turner (Unite the Union & Chair, The People's Assembly), Sam Fairbairn (National Secretary, The People's Assembly) and more to be confirmed.

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.

    Another conference?

    Another talking shop?

    Seriously? You know the answer to these questions. You have the tools, you have the option: direct action!

    What on earth is the point of yet another meeting with the same old faces saying the same old crap that has gotten nowhere. Now we have the sorry spectacle of Jeremy Corbyn being undermined from within, which was obvious to anyone with eyes to see. What else needs discussing? What else is it going to take for you people to wake up and stop playing games.

    DIRECT ACTION!

    We have had the French Revolution, the Russian Revolution, the Velvet Revolution, the Iranian Revolution, and the Arab Spring…. is it not time that the ‘Nobles Revolt’ was overturned and the ’People’s Revolution’ , long overdue, finally occurred???
