The TUC has called a mass demonstration on Saturday 20 October as a follow up to last year’s huge protest on 26 March. Its “March for the Alternative” last year was the biggest trade union demonstration in Britain’s history. Well over half a million marched. The sheer scale of it played a role in building pressure to call the mass strikes.
The TUC is organising another central London demonstration against the policies of austerity. It has the potential to be massive. Coaches will come from across Britain to join the march to a monster rally in Hyde Park. The protest has been called under the banner of “A Future That Works”.
As well as cuts the TUC wants to highlight the issue of unemployment.
