People United: Help build the People's Manifesto

People United: Help build the People's Manifesto

Saturday 22 June 2013 - Friday 05 July 2013 at 09:00-17:00

People United logoFrom London to Manchester criss-crossing the country

Come and join the People United coming to a town near you. This summer the People United bus will criss-cross England to help ordinary people change Britain for the better.

Two chartered People United buses will set off around the country on a two week tour, starting in London from the People's Assembly at Central Hall Westminster on 22 June and ending on 5 July at Trafford hospital - the birthplace of the NHS - with a party to celebrate the 65th birthday of the now at risk National Health Service.

People across the country are struggling at the moment – so the People United will be offering free advice and information on local campaigns. It will not all be hard work, with fun promised too, members of the public can post their messages on to the prime minister, spin the NHS wheel of (mis)fortune and tweet their ideas for their street.

The country is being run by an out of touch government. That’s why People United – a coalition of unions dedicated to working with communities – is shaking things up.

People United wants the people of Britain to help build the People’s Manifesto. Help share ideas for getting people back into work, boosting wages, improving local housing and the local community as well as protecting our NHS.

The People United buses will head to the following towns in England launching from the ‘People’s Assembly Against Austerity’ on 22 June:

Bus 1: Will head east then north from London, taking in towns across East Anglia, the East Midlands, Yorkshire, the North East and the North West before concluding at Manchester.

Bus 2: Will head south from London, through the Medway towns and Thanet, along the south coast into the West Country before heading to the Midlands and on to Manchester.
