Stop the #BedroomTax Protest – Trafalgar Square, London 30th March 2013
We don’t know what happened to the two previous Event pages that were on Facebook and we are still awaiting details on whether Labour Party members had warned people not to attend the protest march, last Sunday. Details known is that London had about a thousand marching, as finally reported by the BBC, a small piece at the end of an update, whilst Glasgow had the largest at 10,000 people.
We managed to live stream the event and writing this, I am troubled that the mainstream are covering a boat race more than the Benefit Cuts millions of people will be suffering from Monday.
For some reason the Event page for this Saturday’s Stop the Bedroom Tax has disappeared again.
Not sure if “Labour Left” deleted it due to the criticism from various people regarding the Labour attempts to co-opt the demonstrations, when they abstained from the vote. Ed MilliBland has also agreed with the Bedroom Tax in principle.
Since the 16th March, the Bedroom Tax campaign has so far staged more than 60 peaceful protests, successfully, in every corner of the UK. Next Saturday, the 30th March, our campaign steps up a gear as we are set to hold protests in London and Glasgow. As well as this, there are 50 more protests planned throughout the UK on that day.
Over 13,000 protesters braved the cold weather on 16th March to make their feelings on the Bedroom Tax clear, and we expect similar numbers to do so again. By Easter Sunday, more than 100 towns and cities throughout the UK will have sent a clear signal to David Cameron – Scrap your Bedroom Tax Dave. — at Trafalgar Square.
Please join us this Saturday. 1300 to 1500 hrs.
Trafalgar Square and start of the march.
