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!

Labour’s National Policy Forum has just ended in Milton Keynes, with Miliband’s team pleased with a weekend notable for the degree of consensus achieved. Against some expectations, there were just one contentious amendment put to a vote (after agreements were reached on key issues such as rail, Trident, housing and free school meals), calling for the party to hold an emergency Budget if elected and to reject the coalition’s spending totals for 2015/16. Proposed by Yorkshire delegate George McManus, it was rejected by 125 votes to 14 with 6 abstentions – a margin of 86.2 per cent to 9.65 per cent.
