The People’s Assembly – Strike!

Peoples Assembly

Up to 2 million members of Unite, National Union of Teachers, Public and Commercial Services Union, Fire Brigades Union, Unison and GMB will all be taking strike action together on 10 July.

This is the biggest co-ordinated strike action for years! The People’s Assembly is encouraging all our supporters to support the strikes in whatever way possible.

On the day, there’ll be big demonstrations, protests and rallies across the country – more details soon. Let’s help to make these as big as possible and do all we can to get the whole community to back the strikes. North London People’s Assembly has pulled together an open letter in support of the strikes and is asking the community to sign, why not do the same for your area? Please also leave a comment on this page with strike events taking place near you.

London strike day demo:
Assemble: 11:30am, BBC HQ, Portland Place, London W1A 1AA.
We are asking our supporters if they can help out on the demo from stewarding to handing out placards. Please reply to this email if you can help.

Stand up Against Austerity Fundraiser | Monday 7 July
LIMITED SPECIAL OFFER: £10 TICKETS – click here to book

After selling all of our initial tickets we are pleased to announce we’ve been able to release another batch at a special discount price. First come, first served.

Of course you can still pay the full price for solidarity tickets if you can afford to!

Just a couple of days before the strike action, a dazzling live comedy line-up is set to spotlight the ‘ridiculous and wacky’ thinking behind government austerity cuts.

The fundraising event, to kick off at London’s Hammersmith Apollo on Monday night, is a great chance to catch some of the UK’s finest stand-ups at their political best. Why not block book for your friends, family, union branch, colleagues, etc?

Performers include Stewart Lee, Jo Brand, Marcus Brigstocke, Jason Manford, Mark Steel, Jeremy Hardy, Jen Brister, Shappi Khorsandi and Francesca Martinez.
