The People's Assembly Against Austerity update

After the boost to morale the General Election result gave us, the campaigns against this Tory Government are hotting up again. The lack of affordable housing continues to force people into sub standard living conditions, increase the number of homeless on London's streets and after the Grenfell Tower Disaster concerns about safety have added a sense of urgency to London's ongoing housing crisis.

If you're able to get over to East London tomorrow night, please get along to this important meeting:

After the Grenfell Disaster - We need Justice We need Answers
6:30pmWednesday 26 July
Bow Road Methodist Church

Join George Monbiot, ex-Grenfell resident Mona KamalRushnara Ali MPEileen Short Defend Council Housing (DCH), Matt Wrack Fire Brigades Union Genreal Secretary, housing campaigners and others.

We need an alternative to: · Unsafe homes · Unaffordable housing · Privatisation · Deregulation · Profiteering

Check out the Facebook Event here.

Also, starting today private contractor Serco is facing a two-week long strike from its employees at four hospitals in London, as they continue to fight for an increase in wages. Serco workers have held several days of vibrant strike action already and the next wave will escalate the campaign. If you can get down to any of the 4 hospitals in the Barts Health NHS trust to show support please do and take a picture and post online to show your solidarity. 
SCRAP THE CAP. RCN London will be holding its biggest event of the summer at Richmond Terrace, opposite Downing Street, on Thursday. Get along if you can!
