MORE DETAILS (from national facebook page):
"We face insecure employment, low pay, and a drive to privatise our public services. There’s a growing housing crisis, our NHS is going through the biggest funding squeeze since it’s foundation, and our Education system is over-stretched. Local services have been shut down as huge budget cuts are forced on councils.
Big business, corporations and the richest are squireling away money in offshore tax havens, awarding themselves bonuses, while immigrants are blamed for problems they had no hand in creating. And everyone else is told to tighten their belts.
At Teresa May's first Tory Party Conference as Prime Minister we will be holding a mass demonstration to say we demand an alternative to ‘Austerity Britain’
We will demand investment in public services, in infrastructure, and in decent jobs for all. An end to scapegoating of migrants which divides our comunities and whips up racism.
As well as this national demonstration, we will be organising 'The People's Conference - our alternative to austerity'. Saturday 1 October (more details & registration soon)."
