October 20: Protest Against the Cuts at Downing Street 6pm
From the Coalition of Resitance:
Stop the Con-Dem cuts! Build the Resistance! Can’t Pay, Won’t Pay!
Speakers include Tony Benn, Caroline Lucas MP, Rev Jesse Jackson, Jeremy Dear (NUJ), Dot Gibson (IHOOPS), Lee Jasper (BARAC), Zita Holbourne (BARAC) John McDonnell MP, Mark Serwotka (PCS), Jeremy Corbyn MP, Bob Crow (RMT), Aaron Porter (NUS)
The momentum for the demonstration on 20 October is growing. Camden Trades Council’s march is now supported by 15 trade union bodies plus the local Labour Party and several anti-cuts and anti-privatisation campaigns (full list below). At the same time, the University of London Students Union is calling on all students to march (assembling 4.00pm outside ULU, Malet Street). The students will march to join the trade union demonstration. The joint march will then head for a rally in Whitehall outside Downing Street. The Coalition of Resistance is calling on all supporters to build the demonstration and rally, and to join the march if possible (4.00pm in Malet Street, or 5.00pm at Lincoln’s Inn Fields) or the final rally (beginning 6.00pm outside Downing Street). When Osborne announces the cuts on 20 October, we need to challenge head-on the Con-Dem lie that ‘there is no alternative’ and that ‘we are all in it together’. We need to break through the media consensus that working people and the poor have to pay for a crisis caused by the bankers, big business, and the rich. That means making the protest on the 20 October big, loud, and vibrant.
