Protest the 2016 Tory conference

Protest the 2016 Tory party conference

Sunday 02 October 2016 at 11:00-17:00

Join the People’s Assembly national demonstration at the Tory party conference, Birmingham

Assemble 11:30am at
Victoria Square, Birmingham, B1 1BD 

The UK faces insecure employment, low pay, and a drive to privatise public services. There’s a growing housing crisis, the NHS is going through the biggest funding squeeze since its foundation, and the education system is overstretched. Local services have been shut down as huge budget cuts are forced on councils. 

Big business, corporations and the richest are squirrelling away money in offshore tax havens, awarding themselves bonuses, while immigrants are blamed for problems they had no hand in creating. And everyone else is told to tighten their belts. This is ‘Austerity Britain’ under the Tory government.

There is an alternative - investment in public services, in infrastructure, and in decent jobs for all. As the Tory party descends on Birmingham to hold its annual conference the People’s Assembly will too, in tens of thousands, and demand the alternative to austerity.

Put the date in your diary & join the national demonstration!
