NETWORK EVENTS SEPTEMBER 2019

QUOTE FOR THE MONTH

Civilisation does not mean to have electric light,

or aeroplane, or nuclear bombs.

Civilisation is not to kill people,

nor to destroy things, not to make war.

Civilisation is to hold mutual affection and respect each other.

Nichidatsu Fujii (Founder of Nipponzan Myohoji)

Film Night - Tuesday September 3rd.

The People's Assembly Against Austerity

Dear Friend,

THOUSANDS of people across Britain will take to the streets over the coming days to demand an immediate general election as the only way to stop this Tory nightmare following unelected Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s coup against democracy.

The People’s Assembly Against Austerity have called for demonstrations to take place across the country as anger continues to grow over Johnson’s “smash and grab” against democracy by shutting down parliament to force through his No Deal Brexit.

Those gathered will demand an immediate general election -the only real people’s vote - and the chance to bring down a Tory Government desperately clinging on to power with a wafer thin majority of one.

Calls for an immediate general election will be led by Labour MPs including Laura Pidcock, who recently accused Johnson of an “abuse of power” ” warning of “a dangerous, anti-democratic precedent” being set by shutting down parliament in a bid to avoid scrutiny.

We believe it is clear the only way out of the crisis is for a general election to give the people the opportunity to bring down the hard right Tory government led by the unelected Boris Johnson.

The only way to end the Tory austerity nightmare is the election of a Anti Austerity government committed to saving our hospitals and schools, investing in housing, renationalising our public services and acting on behalf of the people, not Johnson and the Tories' pals in the banks and big business.

Can you help?

The People's Assembly is a grassroots organisation which is supported by many trade unions, campaigns and local networks, as well as many individuals. But we need your help. It costs money to organise events, meetings, demonstrations and campaigns. Unlike those who are enforcing austerity, we do not have wealthy businessmen backers. We rely on donations from our supporters. Over the past few months we have organised or supported campaigns over the NHS, closure of libraries, housing and in support of trade union rights. We held a demonstration in early January calling for a general election.

We need to step up our campaigning and help give a voice to those trying to stop library closures, end Universal Credit, defend the NHS and provide a better future for our children.

Please consider supporting The People's Assembly with a one off or monthly donation.

Thank you!!
