Tories Out – Austerity Has Failed
At the first Conservative Party conference since Theresa May became prime minister, to be held in Birmingham on Sunday 2 October, the People's Assembly has called a demonstration to demand an alternative to the harmful austerity introduced under her predecessor David Cameron. That means investment in public services, in infrastructure, and in decent jobs for all, and an end to the scapegoating of immigrants which has divided our communities and dangerously stoked racism. We don't believe the Conservatives are willing or able to deliver such change.
The Cambridge People's Assembly will provide cheap, wheelchair-accessible coach transport to and from Birmingham for the demonstration. Our coach will pick up passengers from the Backs on Queens' Road, and from the Unite the Union office near the Park and Ride site on Madingley Road. We'll meet from 8 a.m. ready for the coach to leave at Cambridge at 8.30 – please note the earlier time – and leave Birmingham at 5 p.m. Seats cost £12 (waged) or £6 (unwaged), or are free for children under 14. If you can't afford these prices, we apologize: please let us know and we'll try to work something out.
Stop press: If there's enough demand we will also collect passengers from Peterborough at 9.45 from the city's bus and coach station. This is now an option in the order form.
Stop press again: Unite London and Eastern has kindly agreed to pay for its members to travel. Unite members should please select one of the free ticket types, and give their branch in the special order form.
