Austerity has clearly failed the majority but what is the alternative? At this conference we will explore and discuss how to it's possible to achieve a society where everyone has secure housing, jobs and decent education. It'll counter the lies that will come out of the Tory Conference over the following days, and will propose a series of actions over the coming weeks and months that can create a movement that stops austerity in it's tracks.
Stay in Birmingham to join the National Demonstration on Sunday 2 October. We have started to put a list together of suggested accommodation, this is not exhaustive so please hunt around and keep coming back for more updates.
