National Day of Action Against Austerity called by The People’s Assembly Against Austerity, agreed on at Bristol meetings. #EndAusterityNow
Here’s the plan… Let’s rally at 1pm at the Fountains for a spectacular & inclusive show of defiance to the latest vicious Tory cuts announced at the Queen’s Speech… We’ll see where the energy & our numbers take us!
>> MAKE SOME NOISE! We won’t be silenced by the Queen’s Speech! Bring your pots & pans, instruments, loudest chants & invite your favourite street bands (Samba anyone?) to join the throng!
>> Tell them what we stand for! Bring your home-made PLACARDS & BANNERS with messages of defiance against Tory cuts, austerity & crackdowns on our rights! Giant PROPS (scissors?) are also great…
>> Make a real ‘show’ of it! Some activists have already promised to come in startling FANCY DRESS COSTUMES (optional) – think ‘Queens, Kings & PMs’ or ‘Dress Code: Establishment’!!
… After all, The Queen’s Speech is a medieval political ritual which only serves to casts a sheen of ‘respectability’ over the ruling government’s policies – in this case, the devastating continuation of Tory austerity. This demands ridicule, and we’ll make a real show (for the media and all) of it!
