Protest: Stop the 'Tory Coup'

11114774_886043901463501_3841376031686154745_n.jpgThe Tories and their supporters in the press are preparing a post election plan to stay in office even if Labour and the SNP have more seats in Parliament.

They are planning to declare that they are the legitimate government and have the right to form an administration.

This was the meaning of the recent Times editorial which urged Cameron to 'Occupy Downing Street'.

This will be a 'constitutional coup' against the wishes of the electorate. That's why we are calling for an immediate protest if this happens outside Downing Street at 1pm on Saturday 9 May.

We cannot allow the Tories to get away with using a flagrant abuse of power to impose the most severe austerity this country has seen since the Second World War.

We will use this facebook event page to keep you updated about any changes to the time of the demonstration depending on the outcome of the election. Watch this space and, please, repost this page.
