Feeling depressed following the recent EU and local government election results? Fed up with hearing the narrative …..’if only we had fewer immigrants’….. ? In the North West we succeeded in getting rid of the BNP. Now we need to get rid of austerity and the neoliberal ideology behind it.
We know where the problem lies. It’s capitalism that causes the crisis – not poor people, not immigrants, not the disabled, not those on benefits. And the biggest capitalists on the political scene at the moment are those arrogant posh boys in power. They want to smash trade unions, remove employment rights, impose cuts to jobs and pensions and then sell off our public services to their tax-dodging mates running big private sector companies.
We need an alternative and the People’s Assembly has been providing that alternative ever since its amazing launch in London just under a year ago. Since the 22 June 2013, People’s Assemblies have been springing up all over the country and Liverpool is playing its part. In the run up to the National Demonstration in London on 21st June, Liverpool will be hosting a Hands off Our Unions/ People’s Assembly Rally in the Adelphi Hotel.
So come and join us. Tell your friends and work colleagues. Bring your families. Make your voice heard. We need to inspire people to believe another world is possible and that by standing together, change can be won.
