The People's Assembly Against Austerity A mass movement is born.

A mass movement is born.An estimated 250,000 people marched through the heart of London on Saturday, with one unshakable and unifying message, End Austerity Now! To all those that organised coaches, built blocs, volunteered, spoke, stewarded and donated, we'd like to send a huge thank you and round of applause. Together, we captured major headlines, trended far and wide on social media, and better yet, ensured that the new government has no excuse to ignore a movement that is fast and inevitably growing. 

The next steps are the most important of all. An ongoing series of actions, events, and local organising is vital if we are to create the kind of political crisis that is needed to achieve real social change and a future that is fair and sustainable for all. And so we announce what's coming up...

Protest Osborne's Emergency Budget: National Day of Action | 8th July, 2015 | UK-wide
Osborne plans £12 billion in cuts to welfare and a fresh round of austerity measures. We're calling a national day of action, with rallies, strikes, creative stunts and events all across the country. Get in touch to plan an event in your area and we'll add it to the list!

Demonstrate at the Tory Party Conference | 4-8th October, 2015 | ManchesterWe'll be hosting a week of National protests and action at the Tory party conference. More details will be coming soon so keep an eye on out!

The ball is rolling but we're going to need your help. Our monthly income is entirely reliant on donations and right now, we urgently need more funds if we're to keep up this level of momentum. Please consider donating just £3 per month to help us reach even further, and our message sound out even louder.

In just 2 days, we've had 8 different regions write in to ask about setting up a new local People's Assembly group. Just think how your £3 per month could help them get a good running start! Start up your regular donation now!

Here are some beautiful photos of this weekend's demonstration just to bring back that brilliant feeling. Enjoy!
