    2015 could be the year of huge resistance and change in Britain. We just need to work hard to convince people that if they fight back they can win writes People's Assembly National Secretary Sam Fairbairn. http://www.thepeoplesassembly.org.uk/lets_make_2015_the_year_we_break_austerity

    'The People’s Assembly is planning a national demonstration ending in a high-profile festival of resistance in June. That is our chance to bring together all of the inspirational campaigns that have sprung up across the country, to demonstrate that all of these are part of a bigger austerity picture and demand that whatever government wins the election they should abandon austerity policies and run the country in the interests of the majority and not just those at the top.'
