Nationwide day of Action

The People’s Assembly have called a Nationwide day of Action Saturday 17th October from 11am

In towns and cities up and down the Country. Local People’s Assembly groups will host coordinated actions ranging from Protests, Rallies, Marches and Street meetings to protest the continuing mishandling of the Covid Crisis by this Government.

All events will be organised in a Covid safe way. Full details will be given along with each event and of course all events will be under constant review to see whether the situation changes.
(Political Protest is exempt from the 6 person rule as long as risk is assessed, social distancing is observed and people wear masks.)

We have been left paying the price for the incompetence, lies and manipulation of the Tories.

Throughout the country we will be highlighting:
The disastrous track, trace and test operation
The vast amounts of public money going into private companies like SERCO that are catastrophically failing us.
The millions of people who will lose their jobs
Furlough ending too soon
Poor school safety
Vulnerable staff being sent back to the workplace
Lifting of the Eviction Ban
The infringement of our rights
Confused and inadequate Covid messaging
Putting profit before people
