We plan to join the End Austerity Now march on Saturday along with thousands of others - marching from the Bank of England to Parliament.
Join us locally - Walthamstow Central Station at 11am, to take the 11.19 train to Liverpool Street.
Join us at Liverpool Street - If you are travelling from a Central Line station or anywhere else, meet at 11.40 at the Liverpool Street/Old Broad Street exit near the Railway Pub.
At Cornhill (Royal Exchange) we'll join others from the local party in the Green Party bloc. Just in our local party now we are close to 600 members, so we are looking forward to a great turnout!
This week we have been lobbying our MPs in the largest ever mass lobby on climate change. Many responses from MPs show us that the connections between misplaced austerity, and over-spending on unnecessary fossil fuels are still not being made. This is a chance to make these connections loudly.
From People's Assembly: "June 20th will be an almighty show of strength. Everyone is welcome, and as always, it will be a family friendly event. The People's Assembly have secured an accessible, route for the march, with both first aiders and trained stewards supervising and spread throughout the entire demonstration. Last year we saw 50,000 people from every section of society, young and old, march from the BBC to Parliament square. This year, we aim to double those numbers, and with all our voices, send a clear and simple message to the new government: End Austerity Now!"
