The People’s Assembly Against Austerity

Protest the Tory Party Conference | Timetable

Our Week of Action against the Tory Party Conference is starting tomorrow! Our timetable of events is looking far more attractive than the Tories conference timetable. The whole of Manchester will be a buzz with anti-austerity protest, rallies, meetings, cultural events and actions.

If you’re up for volunteering during the week please get in touch – we need as many people as possible throughout the week. Contact if you can help, even if it’s just a day or two.

Throughout the week take pictures & videos use the hashtag #TakeBackMCR on social media. Lets make sure the whole country knows the Tories face mass opposition to their austerity plans.

See you in Manchester!
