Actions for the autumn statement: Austerity Has Failed!

The People's Assembly Against Austerity

Tomorrow George Osborne will be delivering his autumn statement. The People's Assembly has organised protests and actions across the country to demonstrate that austerity has failed.

VIDEO: After speaking to the people of London last week about the recent spate of cuts, we went to George Osborne's constituency in Tatton, Cheshire to talk to him ahead of his Autumn Statement.  Watch what happened here.

Also, if you missed our economic briefing last week ahead of the autumn statement you can watch video of the speeches here.
