Conference Highlights include:
National Union of Teachers General Secretary, Christine Blower, will be discussing how we make the teachers' strikes a success and how we bring that energy into the demonstration on 21 June.
Kirstine Carbutt, a leading Unison member in Doncaster who has just organised a seven day strike against Care UK, will be relaying her experiences on how to organise successful workplace action.
PCS general secretary Mark Serwotka and the People's Charter will be proposing an alternative to austerity.
Francesca Martinez will be closing the conference talking about why we need a mass movement.
Steve Turner, Unite the Union Assistant General Secretary, will report from Unite's community membership strategy and will be chairing part of the day.
Natalie Bennett, leader of the Green Party, will be addressing the conference about how we bring climate change issues into the anti-austerity movement.
Dr Jackie Davis will propose plans to campaign against the sell off of our NHS.
Lindsey German from the Stop the War Coalition will talk about why the anti-war campaigns need to remain high on the agenda.
And trade unionists, community activists, students and pensioners will be debating the next steps in the campaign against austerity.
As well as being the democratic body of the People's Assembly, we want to use the conference as a way to strengthen and grow the organisation. So please do get in touch with trade union branches, campaigns and community groups locally and ask them to send delegates. We will be sending out a formal invitation and model motion which can be adapted to send to local organisations in a following email over the next few days.
We have set the delegate entitlement for local People's Assembly groups quite high to ensure newer activists are able to attend the conference.
