Worthing is on the March
Let’s fight austerity, together!


Saturday 20th of June is the People's Assembly national demonstration and festival promoting the "End Austerity Now" message.

Let's show the UK that Worthing isn't just going to sit back and watch members of our community suffer under more devastating cuts to the NHS, education, welfare and public services.

Book your train ticket from Brighton to London via the eventbrite link

then meet us at Worthing central station at 9am, where there will be subsidised train tickets from Worthing to Brighton available.This is a family friendly event so do bring the family along :-)

Please let us know if you are meeting us at Worthing Central train station so we can get an idea of how many tickets we will need. Contact details in About Me in the side bar >>>>>>>

If you want to meet us on the Brighton train or in London, that's fine too. We will confirm meeting spots soon :-)

Looking forward to seeing you all on Saturday

Notes

 1.   Brighton people's assembly are subsidising travel (through donations and through using group tickets) to get from Brighton to London. This is to help individuals and families on low incomes to still are able to attend the event which would otherwise be cost prohibitive.
Suggested donations are £9+ per ticket (this would normally cost over £16 so I think it's a pay what you can afford sort of deal)
We will also be offering subsidised train travel from Worthing to Brighton for those on low incomes to ensure this event is accessible to everyone.
We are hoping to get some financial support from unions but this isn't finalised yet.
 2.   For those wishing to do there own thing Southern Rail do a Day Save Off-Peak Fare for about £15. A small group of 4, say 2 adults and 2 children, costs about £35. See:

The People's Assembly is organising a major national demonstration to tell the new government: END AUSTERITY NOW

Assemble: 12pm, Saturday 20 June 
Bank of England (Queen Victoria Street) 
London (Tube: Bank) 
March to: Parliament Square

With the Tories going it alone in government we know exactly what to expect. More nasty, destructive cuts to the things ordinary people care about- the NHS, the welfare state, education and public services.

We'll be assembling the demonstration in the heart of the City of London right on the doorstep of the very people who created the crisis in the first place, the banks and their friends in Westminster. We demand that the bankers and elite should pay for the crisis and not the vast majority who had nothing to do with it.

Now is the time to get organizing, to mobilize our communities, to prepare transport and spread the word. We need to do all that we can to make this demonstration bigger and bolder than ever we have done before.

Transport is being arranged from across the country. More details to follow.

UK Ministers scared' to face committee

2 Jun 2014 — Esther McVey, the Conservatives DWP minister, has refused to appear before the Welfare Reform Committee but agreed to a private meeting with members Now McVey has cancelled her planned visit. Work and Pensions secretary Iain Duncan Smith previously refused to appear at the committee and instead had an informal off the record meeting with MSPs. And Lord Freud, another DWP minister, has also refused requests to attend The Scottish Parliament. Labour and SNP have accused the Tory ministers of being scared to account for the impact their policies have on vulnerable people. Committee Convener Michael McMahon MSP said: "We wanted a public meeting, sooner rather than later. "Instead, we get a private meeting that's eventually cancelled. How insulting to the people. "Ms McVey can run but she can't hide from our committee. She has to account for the impact of her department on the most vulnerable in society." http://t.co/S46fGQuCGM

A fascistic government attempts to silence UK newspapers that report on behalf of the people - Newspapers that report news regarding Benefit Claimants will be gagged.
