March for the Alternative: Jobs, Growth, Justice.
Make the rich pay for a crisis which they created!
In response to the government public sector spending cuts the Trade Union Congress along with a variety of Trade Unions and organisations are marching through London to protest against government spending cuts will damage public services and put more than a million out of work. They will hit the vulnerable, damage communities and undermine much of what holds us together as a society.
The TUC are unfortunately working closely with the police to enforce strict rules on how we can protest on the day, even going so far as to employ stewards that liaise with a police communication HQ.
We will protest how WE see fit, we don’t need the permission of the TUC or anyone else.
Therefore we propose that rather than a typical A to B march with the same boring speeches that we actually take action for our communities and make a stand in London.
We think that people should take what action they deem is necessary for themselves. After all it is YOUR struggle.
We call for the TUC to endorse a general strike along with other trade unions to show not only fight austerity measures being taken in this country but to show solidarity with other struggles worldwide.
Rather than getting back on the coaches after a non event day, stay in London with us for 24 hours and lets see what we can do? Hyde Park will serve as one occupied territory, from which we can support various actions across London.
The idea of the occupation is to reach out to layers of trade unionists and others who would otherwise just get the coach home.They share our view of the TUC leadership’s gesture politics but aren’t yet ready to occupy buildings or break the law.
Rather than take the coach home feeling like nothing has been achieved lets see what happens?
Join us, 5pm 26th March till 5pm 27th March (or Longer?)
