Sign up for the people’s convention to build resistance to cuts and austerity

This Con-Dem coalition aims to roll back the welfare state, slash our living standards, attack our pensions and to drive up unemployment. We need to respond with protests, direct action and strikes.

At the People’s Convention on Saturday 12 February we want to discuss how we can do just that. We also want to examine alternatives to austerity – where the rich and the corporations pay for a crisis they caused. The convention is organised jointly by Right to Work, the Labour Representation Committee and Disabled People Against the Cuts.

Speakers include: Diane Abbot MP, Mark Serwotka, PCS General Secretary, Tony Kearns, CWU senior deputy General Secretary,  Jane Loftus, CWU President,  Jimmy Kelly, Head of UNITE in Ireland, Jeremy Corbyn MP,  Andrej Hunko, Die Linke MP (Germany),  Katy Clark MP , John McDonnell MP, Representative of FIOM (Italian Metal Workers Federation),  Captain SKA, producer of the hugely popular ‘Liar Liar‘ YouTube hit

Workshops include: Organising claimants against benefit cuts,  Disabled people – at the forefront of resistance (sponsored by Disabled People Against the Cuts), Students – at the forefront of struggle (Sponsored by National Campaign Against Cuts & Fees and Education Activists Network), How trades councils can build resistance, Labour and the cuts, Organising a local anti-cuts campaign
