We’re calling on all local groups to co-ordinate a National Day of Action on Tuesday 21 November the eve of chancellor for the few Phillip Hammond’s latest budget.
This is a government who have recently just lost nearly £500 billion down the back of the sofa, while homelessness has doubled, 4 million children are living in poverty and cuts to our services slash into our communities. Universal Credits is a disaster and the Tories know it. However Hammond tries to dress up this mess it won’t be enough. We have no confidence in Hammond’s ability as chancellor and we have no confidence in the Tory government to carry on in power any longer.
Start contacting your friends in Labour Party, Green Party, local campaigns and trade’s councils and branches and submit a motion calling for a protest on Tuesday 21 November.

Model Motion coming soon*
