The NUJ is urging all members to attend events in London, Glasgow and Belfast demanding "A Future that Works".
NUJ general secretary Michelle Stanistreet said: "Members of the NUJ will be marching with thousands of fellow trade unionists, students, pensioners and families on Saturday to protest about the remorseless and wrong-headed cuts that are damaging livelihoods and lives across the UK.
"Journalists will be amongst the marchers because our industry has been badly hit in recent years, as owners of media companies opportunistically seized the chance to cull staff, cut costs and close newspapers altogether, leaving a frightening democratic deficit in our local communities.
"You cannot impose such cuts without compromising quality, and NUJ members will continue to stand up for journalism. And the government cannot impose cuts on this scale, implemented in a way that hit the poorest and most vulnerable the hardest, without wreaking irreparable damage on our society – that's why we'll all be marching together on Saturday."
The day of action has been organised by the Trade Union Congress (TUC). There will be thousands of people gathering in London, Glasgow and Belfast. The NUJ has an assembly point with colleagues from the entertainment unions.
In London, trade unionists will assemble from 11am along Victoria Embankment to set off at 12 noon but please be aware that there are significant engineering closures on the tube network.
Signs will be put on lamp posts or other street furniture to demarcate 14 zones at the assembly point. The demonstration will be ordered as follows -
Front Party (General Council),
Band, Unite, Unison, GMB, USDAW, NUT, PCS, NASUWT, CWU,
UCATT, Community, UCU/ATL/NUS, Health unions, Prospect//FDA/MiP,
RMT/TSSA/FBU, Entertainment unions, other unions and everyone else.
There will be a disability assembly zone for the full march in Savoy Street. Disabled marchers travelling by car will need to apply for a vehicle access permit. There will be a disability assembly zone for a shorter march in St James Street (off Piccadilly) that will be fed into the march as it passes.
The rally in Hyde Park will run from 1.30-4pm. The rally will be a rolling programme of speakers and music.
