North Yorkshire coach to July 16th Emergency Demonstration
Sat 16 July 2016, 07:30 – 23:00 BST
Stop The Hate - Defend Migrants - No More Austerity
Jointly called by People's Assembly and Stand Up To Racism.
Pick-ups: 6.30am Scarborough (Rail Station), 7.30am York (Leeman Road Coach Stop) - please select a pick-up location when booking your tickets.
Since the EU referendum, racism has been on the rise, Corbyn has faced a coup, and the Tory party has committed itself to one of two dangerously right-wing, anti-human-rights candidates. Whatever we hope for in the coming weeks and months of uncertainty, we must stamp out this surge in racism and see off a new wave of austerity. We must not allow minorities and migrants to take the blame for economic failure, nor allow the Tories to push through privatisation unnoticed whilst we are distracted.
March assembles from 12noon outside the BBC in Portland Place, off Oxford Street, London.
The coach has a toilet and there will be breaks in both directions. We aim to return to York by 11pm and Scarborough by Midnight - arrivals may be earlier. Please spread the word, as we have only 9 days to fill this coach!
(NB: We regret having to cancel our coach to the Durham Miners Gala. It was not possible to run both, and we hope people will make their own way to Durham on 9th July).
