Book seats for coaches leaving Derby for Torres Out demonstration by email mozgreenshields@gmail.com or text 07889274723

Planned to coincide directly with the Tory Party Conference in Manchester we will be holding 5 full days of protest, music, comedy, direct actions, meetings, events and a whole lot more…

This is will probably be the most ambitious event the People’s Assembly Against Austerity have ever undertaken. We will make sure the Tories, can’t move through Manchester without feeling the full force of opposition to their austerity policies.

Take Back Manchester Festival | 30 Sep – 4 Oct 2017

The week of action will include:
National Demonstration – Sunday 1 October 2017
Tories Out | No More Austerity | Scrap the Pay Cap
For Decent Health, Homes, Jobs & Education
Assemble: 12:00pm, Castlefield Arena, Rice Street, Manchester – March to the Conference Centre

This is the main event in the week which coincides with the opening of the Conservative Party conference. Coaches and transport is being arranged from across the country for the day.

If you can organise a group of people to travel from your organisation, workplace or community then please get in touch – we can put you in touch with people in your area and advise on best transport options.

Get Ready | Get Involved | Get Organised

The week will be packed full & we’re encouraging as many people as possible to stay for the whole week. Book time off work now – we will be arranging accommodation for people in a community centre. This will be basic but will be very cheap. Full details and booking available soon.

Other events in the week will be announced every few days so keep an eye on our website and the event on Facebook.

Please check out the Facebook page here, like it and share widely.

Also check out our transport page here.  These are the few coaches already booked and don’t forget to keep checking back as more come in… Also please send us your coach details as soon as you have them to office @thepeoplesassembly.org.uk so we can add them to the site.

Finally – we urgently need to raise funds!

To take on this task we need to raise a huge amount of money. The more money we raise, the more venues we can book, protests and demonstrations we can organise, events can take place.

We need to raise a minimum of £70,000 but once we hit that target we won’t stop fundraising – we’ll just go bigger and bolder with the events we can plan.

Please make a donation and help make this huge!

SOS #NHS Derby: Southern Derbys CCG AGM Report ‘by 2021 there will be an estd £280 million financial gap for Derbyshire’s NHS. Things are in a terrible mess. Defend your #NHS #Derbyuk #Derbyshire

SOS NHS Derby defend the National Health Service

The AGM report (page 17) said that ‘by 2021 there will be an estimated £219 million financial gap for Derbyshire’s health system. We asked them for an update and were told that that figure had rocketed up to £280 million. Things are in a terrible mess.


We thought that you might like to hear about our protest at the CCG last Friday. People came from different communities from all across Derbyshire; see the photo above. ITV broadcast a news item.

We let the Southern Derbyshire CCG (Clinical Commissioning Group) know that we do not accept their plans to follow government austerity and lead our NHS into bed shortages and privatisation. They talk about care being community based but the community is on its knees.

They talk about consulting the community; that is one thing that they have not done. A large number of us went into the two meetings and we presented our ongoing petition

(please sign here on-line if you haven’t already done so) objecting to the idiotic talk of cutting 535 hospital beds across Derbyshire (nearly one third of all) and them suggesting that it will be more effective to treat patients in the home.

The AGM report (page 17) said that ‘by 2021 there will be an estimated £219 million financial gap for Derbyshire’s health system. We asked them for an update and were told that that figure had rocketed up to £280 million. Things are in a terrible mess.

Yes there are problems to do with administration. But this is due, in the main, to the cutting back of funds and the constant re-organisation, allowing the private sector to cherry-pick the best bits of the NHS.

We do not have to accept this. The more of us protest and campaign against the cuts and sneaking privatisation, the greater the chance we have of keeping our much loved NHS. We will be protesting outside the next meeting 22 September 2017, from 12.30 pm onwards. The actual CCG meeting is from 1:00 pm to 3.30pm, once again at Cardinal Square Derby DE1 3QT. Lets start organising now!

We want resistance to the cuts, not collaboration with them.

The aim of SOS NHS Derby is to defend the National Health Service against cutbacks, fragmentation, market-style reforms and privatisation.

American Comedian Jimmy Dore on the Jeremy Corbyn Commercial that Made Right-Wingers Cry

Jimmy Dore explains Neo Liberal Corporate Policies

Beastrabban\'s Weblog

Remember the advert for Jeremy Corbyn that went around a week or so ago, which showed a group of very middle class people sneering at Corbyn and his supporters, while showing up how each and everyone was a hypocrite? Here the American comedian, Jimmy Dore, comments on the advert and why it’s so good.

The various characters featured sitting round a dinner type, guzzling wine and moaning about how modern kids want something for nothing, are all portrayed as having done exactly the same themselves. Such as a man moaning about how students don’t want to pay for their university tuition, when he himself never paid for his. The Tories and their supporters went berserk, claiming it was just bourgeois stereotypes, and that ‘Lenin would have been so proud’.

As Dore points out, these aren’t stereotypes. Mike also made the point in a blog post he put up about it…
