Protest Osborne’s Emergency Budget – 8 July nationwide

Stand together to say ‘No!’

George Osborne has decided we need an ‘Emergency’ Budget, after the mess he inherited from the last chancellor – himself!

We’ve been promised a slash-and-burn attack on welfare, education, health and more besides, to make up for the tax cuts he announced before the election.

Rally in Parliament Street: 5.30pm, Wednesday July 8th.

As details slip out, its clear that those already at the bottom of society will be pushed further to the margins, or worse. We’ll be holding our rally outside the branches of 3 of Britain’s biggest banks: Halifax, Barclay’s and (over the road) Lloyd’s.

Alongside People’s Assembly groups across Britain, we want to demonstrate the strength of feeling against austerity in our community. 250,000 marches in London, but now we want to bring the spirit of the march home to York with an open microphone rally (please keep it under a minute!).

Join us on Wednesday – and invite everyone you know in York!

P.S. We’ll be putting the final touches on this event, as well as planning events around treatment of York’s homeless and charges at York Art Gallery at our meeting on Monday, 7.30pm in Friends Meeting House, York. Come early for an informal introduction to the group at 7pm.


The People's Assembly Against Austerity
Support for The People’s Assembly has surged since the ‘End Austerity Now’ demo on 20 June! New local groups are being set up across the country. Check our local groups page for one near you or if you can set one up where you live please get in touch with the office for advise and support.


We’re planning on keeping the momentum going with a National Day of Action on 8 July. George Osborne is announcing his emergency budget, so we’re calling nation wide protests. This is the second budget in just four months & it begs the question what was Osborne hiding in his last? Osborne plans £12 billion in cuts to welfare and a fresh round of austerity measures.

If you’re in London:
We’d like to welcome all Londoners that support the People’s Assembly to a London Wide Meeting – whether you volunteered, stewarded, made placards, or even just came on the 20 June demonstration – to come along to our next London-wide gathering. We’ll be thinking about how to build a huge presence in London, and sharing ideas on how to make our upcoming events as big as possible.

We thank you for your support and if you able, please set up a monthly donation to help us maintain a permanent opposition to austerity.
