North-East campaigners set to join anti-austerity protest in London

Campaigners from across the North-East will travel to London to join anti-austerity protesters next month.

Coachloads of campaigners are expected to make their way from the region to a national demonstration against austerity measures, called by The People’s Assembly Against Austerity.

The #EndAusterityNow demonstration is being staged in reaction to the election of the Conservatives and their austerity proposals.

A spokesman said:

“The Tories are back in, this time with a majority.

“They plan many more savage cuts, causing misery for millions.

“We are organising and demonstrating to stop them.

“We demand an alternative to austerity and to policies that only benefit those at the top.

“We’ll be assembling the demonstration in the heart of the City of London right on the doorstep of the people who created the crisis to demand that they should pay for it and not the majority who had nothing to do with it.”

Coaches will leave the North-East from Hartlepool and Middlesbrough on Saturday, June 20, returning the same evening.

Seats are £30 waged or £20 unwaged.

For more information or to book a seat, email nepeoplesassembly@gmail.com.
