The 99% Against Austerity
Date(s) - 04/05/2013
Peaceful, family friendly demonstrations throughout the UK will highlight that we ‘the people’ will not stand by and let this government ruin our country and our dignity by enforcing austerity on us whilst they get tax breaks. We will not stand for the cuts to our national services, the lack of jobs, the new bedroom tax which means children are forced to share rooms smaller than politicians’ closets, the constant lies by the government, the high prices of living. We are not the shirkers and scroungers we are made out to be.
NOTE: This is not an Occupy event, although many Occupy supporters may attend.
WE SAY NO TO AUSTERITY
WE SAY NO TO THE BEDROOM TAX
WE SAY NO TO THE CUTS
WE SAY NO TO WORKFARE
WE SAY NO TO ATOS HEALTHCARE
WE WANT A LIVING WAGE
WE WANT A GOVERNMENT THAT WORKS FOR THE ALL THE PEOPLE NOT JUST THE 1%
AND LEAVE THE NHS ALONE
Coaches are planned covering the country at a subsidized rate.
Also check out the posts as events are also in Edinburgh and Cardiff. Protests in your home towns are also encouraged on this day.
This is a non-violent event. If a little guy from India could change things through non-violence, so can we! Violence will not be tolerated. This is a peaceful protest – there already is enough violence around.
