No to Austerity, Yes to a Million Climate Jobs
The People’s Assembly alongside trade unions and the Campaign Against Climate Change are organising an anti-austerity/pro-climate jobs bloc on the Time to Act Climate Change demo on 7 March.
Come with your placards and banners. Look out for the People’s Assembly ‘No More Austerity’ banner at the assembly point.
Why are we supporting the demo?
We face a climate crisis and a crisis of pay and employment for millions of working people. The market chooses profit and economic growth at the cost of public services and the health of the planet that sustains us.
Working people are expected to pay for an economic crisis they didn’t cause, and up to a million families in Britain have to choose between heating their homes in winter or having regular meals.
Austerity measures will continue to undermine our national response to climate change, notably our frontline flood defences and services.
Fresh solutions are available w ith the creation of one million new climate jobs. This crisis gives us the opportunity to galvanise, and show that as a movement we are stronger, together.
Let’s show we care about the world we will leave for our children and grandchildren. Together let’s bring a message of urgency which will no longer be ignored.
