National Day of Action - Saturday 30 MayWe're also calling a national day of action on Saturday 30 May to build for the 20 June demonstration.
We're asking all local People's Assembly groups, supporting organisations and individuals to do something on that day - anything ranging from a big scale event to a leafleting session for the demo. Some suggestions:
- an 'End Austerity Now' protest in your town or city
- direct action - from occupations of empty housing to road blocks or banner drops
- a stall in your high street to publicise the demonstration
- a public meeting in your area (contact the office - we can send speakers)
In London the People's Assembly will be supporting a rally organised by the PCS union in support of striking workers at the National Gallery, against the governments attacks on the trade unions & against austerity:
Rally @ Trafalgar Square - 1pm

This demonstration is more important than ever. It needs to be massive. We urgently need to raise funds to make sure we can reach as many people as possible.
We have launched an urgent appeal to all our supporters to make a donation. The more money we raise, the more coaches we can put on, meetings we can organise, leaflets we can print, and more people we can put on the streets.
No amount is too big or too small! Click here to donate
