Join the People’s Assembly national demonstration in London

BBC Broadcasting House,
Portland Place, London W1A 1AA
(Closest tube: Regent's Park or Oxford Circus)
Join the march to Parliament Square
The general election result was devastating for Theresa May and the Tories. May called it to gain a bigger majority in parliament but failed spectacularly to deliver on that. Now the Tories are in chaos, forced to try to prop up a government with the deeply conservative and regressive DUP. Even if the Tories can get a Queen’s Speech through parliament this arrangement is unsustainable, it won't last for long.
The election result represents a rejection of Tory policies. The Tories know they have no mandate; already the government has suggested it may have to ease its austerity plans because of huge opposition.
Now we need to make sure the full force of opposition is felt, if we mobilise in huge numbers we can force big concessions on the NHS, education, housing and jobs. There is already talk of another general election in the next few months.
We're marching against another five years of a Tory government committed to austerity, cuts and privatisation. And we're marching for a decent health service, education system, housing, jobs and living standards for all.
We urge all members to join the demonstration, and stand shoulder to shoulder in one massive show of strength on Saturday 1 July.

- The march will be on the road for the whole route so there shouldn't be any problems for wheelchair users.
