Michael Meacher calls for more anti-austerity protests

An outspoken Labour MP has called for ONE MILLION people to take to the streets in a mass protest against Tory austerity cuts.

Writing on his blog, Michael Meacher said that the ‘250,000’ strong protests which took place last weekend were a “very good start”, but added that “it needs to be followed through with ever bigger demos over the next few months”.

Mr Meacher said “you can always tell when the Establishment is worried”, because the majority of right-wing newspapers choose not to report protests against the Tories.

The right-wing media normally only report these events “if scuffles or violence takes place”, said Mr Meacher. Suggesting that they were waiting for a way to discredit and demonise those people who attended.

He added that, “if the pressure continues and grows bigger still, government takes notice and behind the scenes begins to backtrack”.
