Six weeks to the biggest demonstration in years

In the last few days, we've seen a staggering 45,000 people pledge to take to the streets on June 20 and tell the new government to End Austerity Now. With the Tories going it alone in government we know exactly what to expect - more destructive cuts, and more attacks on our communities. 

Now is the time to mobilise, to spread the word and to put everything we have into showing the full force of anti-austerity opinion in Britain. But organising a demonstration of this size will need all the help we can get, and we have six weeks to make it happen.

We're asking everyone of our supporters to please donate to our National Demo Appeal to make this as big and effective as possible.



Currently, The People's Assembly is totally reliant on donations, and to pull off this event we expect the costs to be at least £60,000. However, with every pound that is donated, we can produce more flyers, mobilise more towns and cities, organise more transport from across the country, and bring hundreds of thousands of people into the city of London on June 20.

Donate Now! What could you help fund?

£5: Will enable us to print and assemble 5 placards 

£10: Will fund 250 flyers and posters to be sent to a local group 

£20: Will assist us in getting a space in the papers, live broadcasting, and capturing mass media attention

£50: Support us to book an enormous sound system to make sure the whole of London can hear us



No amount is too big or too small, so please donate and spread the word, and thank you to all those that have already make contributions. Together, we can make this happen!

We will be sending out regular updates of route, speakers and more days of action this week. Watch this space. 

Please make sure you invite your friends to the facebook event - click here

In solidarity,

    I think the people’s assembly are pussyfooting around with this 20th June demo. If they are really serious about mobilising resistance to austerity (not to mention the abolition of our human rights, TTIP etc, and they SHOULD be serious), why don’t they start to organise mass localised protests in every town and city on the same day, in addition to direct action, and a national strike, on the same day i.e 20th June??? You will get a far greater number out on the streets if you do it locally. It is totally unrealistic to expect most hardworking people, never mind families with children, to make what for most of us will be a long and tiring journey to London on the day. I was at the ’Don’t attack Iraq’ anti war protests in London,April 2003, where independent (not Police) estimates reported around two million protesters, officially the largest demonstration in this country’s history. The mass media did their best to ignore it, by under reporting and the usual economy with the truth, and it Bliar was ‘not for turning’, in the words of his heroine, so it did not change anything (although he was worried, according to later reports). How much more we could do if we approached this sensibly.

    The specific cause of austerity is just a symptom of a much bigger dynamic. Countries like the UK and US are like hotels where the workers slave away in the basement, they never go home, they never escape their slavery, so they work and sweat away for the benefit of the elite guests who might stay in your hotel for a while and then swan off to another hotel. Even on a spiritual level, life for most is a diet of distractions…crap baseless TV, a very unhealthy interest in celebrity, sport, drugs, drink and anti-depressants. How many labor hours were wasted by 40,000 runners in this year’s London marathon? What about all those hours wasted travelling and the the environmental costs?

    The idea postulated that voters were informed, savy voters….funny, but I thought all the public ramblings…carefully selected public ramblings are based on the messaged pumped out by the corrupt system. It’s as if the sheeple voter mentally debates the inner walls of a shoe box when the reality (blue pill) is strewn across the walls of the room that contains the shoe box. The public knows very little of the reality.

    Just heard May on BBC Radio 4 talking about new laws to tackle extremism…these are laws aimed at truthers, people who say 9/11 and 7/7 were inside jobs….you see, the establishment are scared. Both May and Cameron have spoken about stopping truthers. Cameron actually spoke about this in his last UN speech. I am a truther and Cameron actually said they I was on the same level as a terrorist. I’ve never committed a crime, but I soon will be a criminal. When Cameron made that speech, he violated my human rights and this proves that austerity, while important, is a symptom and there are much more important things to focus on.

    I am still waiting for a reply from the People’s Assembly, but I have already come to the conclusion that the PA is just another elite controlled vent for public anger which is being used to organise confrontations with government hired thugs and the police. The People’s Assembly appears to be a version of the US elite controlled Tea Party.

    To carl Jones

    You make some good points. However, please try to remember that Unity is the only way forward. Please try to see where you both are agree. THAT DRAMATIC CHANGE IS NEEDED. The points Ann was making was not about women, but the fact that we must unite in a common cause, before we are all to weak and destitute to do so. Please try to remember that revolution takes time to build. Revolution is a process of change. The fact we live in a banana republic seems to allude most people, but not all. The Aristocratic imperialists can not hold humanity to ransom forever. An awakening has begun, its our job to unite and inform. To combat the dis-inform and divide and conquer tactics the people we oppose use.

    To Ann Bird

    Hi Ann, I don`t want to be condescending, but you haven`t thought this through and the reason why you haven`t done this, is because you`ve been through the brainwashing education system (so have I, but I took the blue pill) and then further brainwashed as you have passed through life.

    You really think that the right to vote has elevated women? YOU really believe your vote or the votes of other women matter? In this god forsaken country, we have an entire generation of men who are either still living with their moms and pops, living in some squalid flat/house living in a tiny room that would be deemed too small for an animal and these young men have almost no chance of having a stable family life with children and somewhere to bring them up. In fact Ann, men have way, way less rights/protections than women do. So, men have had the vote longer that women, but they are no better off. I am sorry, truly sorry, but you are deluded. The only thing that has improved lives of both men and women are medical advances and technological advances and even then, there is a HUGE DAM that holds the majority of these advances back.

    Basically Ann, women were given the vote, precisely, because votes don`t matter. All the parties are controlled by hidden elites and this infestation of Freemasons and other satanist parasites is rife.. In late 2008, after the start of the DESIGNED financial collapse, I was talking to a South African guy WHO OWNED HIS OWN BANK! Like myself, he understood the staggering levels of elite criminality required to crash the global financial system and these were his exact words to me; “I am surprised the people (sheeple) are not in the City burning the banks down”….remember, he OWNED his own bank and he was shocked by just how passive the medicated sheeple were!!lol

    It`s no good going on a march…this country needs a revolution and it probably needs something like the French revolution where the top 5% are either hung or lose their heads. By the end of this parliament, assuming it goes full term, you will look back and wished you had been part of a revolution. Now Ann, you keep voting, the Rothschild`s will be very happy.

    Is there anyone going from Gloucester, Stroud or Cheltenham? A coach or lift would be much appreciated. I’m still waiting to hear if Unison are putting on a coach, but it sounds unlikely.

    In reply to carl jones……..its a god job emmiline pankhurst didnt adopt your hopeless attitude when she saw the awful effects of the victorian workhouse and the plight of the women there some forced into prostitution and all because queen victoria and her government decided that they didnt want a something for nothing society so put poor people into the workhouse……….having seen the plight of these women in moss side manchester incidentally where emmiline was born, she decided nothing would change in society for these women if women didnt get the vote………against all the odds she went forward and did something rather …………something needs to be done about the ridiculous cuts…. our voices need to be heard or we may end up back in the workhouse

    Well, you are wasting your time trying to convince the Tories to change. Many years ago (I could search the date ) I was within arms length when I heard two senior English bankers talking about David Cameron. This was the day that Cameron was elected leader of the Tory party. These two bankers must have known David personally. They both agreed that the next task was to mould Cameron into something the public will like or accept. Just about everything you see or hear about Cameron is scripted in some back room. Puppets like Cameron are the best political actors…remember Blair? I don’t get it, why are you attempting to have a conversation with something you have no knowledge of? You have no idea how Cameron’s mind works and for that matter, any sicko Tory.

    Labour and it’s MP’s are as close to the Tory party as you can get without paying a membership. Labour is completely enslaved to the City. Even UKIP’s anti establishment Farage berates the EU doing deals with the corporates, but somehow the bankers don’t get a memtion, Farage just let’s that slip his mind.lol

    To set this context, I was posting about the coming designed financial collapse on the BBC Today forums in 2001/2/3. And I have living witnesses to that effect. If you understand the greatest crime in all human history, then there is no way on this Earth that you can do a deal with the big parties or the elite. They are all criminals by design or association. I won’t go into the details of why I knew they were going to crash the GLOBAL economy. But there are comparisons with the 1929 crash and the Great Depression (Greater Depression now) and the designed World War 2. For a start, there has been no recovery. The only thing that dragged the US out of depression was WW2. But don’t be fooled into thinking that the elite/corporations weren’t rolling in cash.. they were. They were pumping huge sums of money into the German war machine and the Bush family were still pumping US dollars into Germany as late as 1943!!

    So here we are in a designed collapse which is still on going. The public are being degraded so they will accept war. The NWO are bending over backwards to set Putin up with a coup in the Ukraine and illegal sanctions.

    You are right to be worried about austerity….but how do you feel about the return of conscription? Two Tory MP’’s tried to pass a conscription bill during in the last parliament. So you should be very worried…18-45y olds! Worried?

    At some point, they won’t have the slack to convert one full time job into 3 zero hours contract. So rolling conscription could take 750,000 off the benefits bill. Don’t be surprised if they also try and end social housing….you can bet that Tory nerds have been burning the wax over the last 5 years in order to bring this about. Just the other day, Bonkers Boris was questioned about social housing….Boris couldn’t even acknowledge that social housing existed!!!

    Is this movement, the Peoples Assembly, just a UK attempt at replicating the US elite controlled Tea Party movement? Is this just a heat sink…just another railway siding?

    I’ve lost count of the weekend rallies that have brought about no change. The ministers are at home, the businesses are shut other than retail. Who are you supposed to affect? Try a working day, bring the city to it’s knees and then you might get their attention.

    Hi, There are many anti bedroom tax groups on Facebook. We would all like to get involved as well.
    We are desperate to abolish the Bedroom Tax. People have already died. Thanks to this totally, unworkable policy. There are many Disabled people. And, many who cannot get to London.
    We would, like every town and city, up and down the country to also have a march/peaceful protest. On the same day. Same time. Then the media may take notice of us!!
