The Government should reverse damaging austerity, and replace it with a new set of policies providing us with a fair, sustainable and secure future. We will no longer tolerate politicians looking out for themselves and for the rich and powerful. Our political representatives must start governing in the interests of the majority. We, the undersigned, demand:

  • Re-nationalise our services & remove private profit from health, education and social services
  • A statutory living wage, abolish zero hour contracts, end the wage freeze
  • Invest in building social housing, abolish the bedroom tax & place a cap on private rents
  • A higher tax on the rich & a clamp down on tax avoidance
  • Reverse all spending cuts
  • Invest in creating green jobs
  • Increases to welfare and pensions should be tied to inflation
  • A stop to scapegoating of immigrants or those on welfare
  • A publically owned, democratic banking system
  • End the cost of war in blood and money: no military interventions, no Trident replacement

    The right-wing views propagated by the right-wing press must be stopped, a more fair and balanced national press should be a goal to give the country a proper view of the real issues affecting its people. The BBC should not be used as a vehicle to promote the views of just one side; I notice a lot of coverage of the pro-democracy demonstrations in Hong Kong (who PM David Cameron claims to support), while we see nothing in the national news about the peaceful Occupy Democracy demostrations in Parliament Square in London, which the Conservatives are suppressing.
