Livestream: South London People’s Assembly Conference 2014.
South London People’s Assembly Conference. Saturday 4 October at Lambeth Town Hall, Brixton.
Great report of Saturday’s fantastic South London People’s Assembly in South West Londoner! More pictures to follow! Thanks to everyone who came down to take part in discussions on austerity and housing, disability, young people, the NHS, benefit justice and the living wage. Now it’s all about action – in the final plenary the assembly voted to campaign on the living wage and for a march for housing in early 2015.
On Saturday 21 June, 50,000 people marched against austerity in London in a demonstration called by The People’s Assembly and supported by unions including the NUT, Unite, PCS & FBU. Russell Brand and Len McCluskey among others spoke at a rally in Parliament Square.
The next South London People’s Assembly is on Saturday 4 October at Lambeth Town Hall, Brixton.
This year’s speakers include:
Diane Abbott MP
