People are feeling the squeeze more than ever as living standards continue to drop. All David Cameron and his millionaire cabinet can do is tell us is things are getting better, but the so-called economic recovery demonstrates it's only getting better for those at the top.
This demonstration is a way of cutting through this; uniting, and not dividing, communities to fight for a better future.
We are pleased to announce that we have negotiated a fantastic route for the march. We'll be assembling right on the BBC's doorstep, then marching through central London and ending with a free festival outside Parliament.
Performers and speakers include: Russell Brand, Christine Blower, Owen Jones, Kate Smurthwaite, Sam Fairbairn, Sean Taylor, Len McCluskey, Stephen Morrison-Burke, Francesca Martinez, Jeremy Corbyn MP. More TBA.
The march will bring together all campaigns and organisations who are fighting austerity. Some organisations will be forming themed blocs on the demonstration to represent their campaigns.
Hands off our NHS, Stand up for Education, Welfare not Warfare, Housing, Artists Against Austerity, Environment, Immigrants Welcome Here, Europe Against Austerity, Student Assembly. Trade unions will also be organising their own blocs.
