The People’s Assembly are organising a march on Saturday 16th April (next weekend) from 1pm in London, calling for health, homes, jobs and education. It will start at the junction between Gower Street and Euston Road, marching towards Trafalgar Square.
Some of us from Psychologists Against Austerity will be joining the march. If you would like to come along and march with us, we will be meeting outside the Prince of Wales Feathers pub, next to Warren Street station at 12.30pm. This is around the corner from where the march is starting and we will walk over to join them at 12.45pm.
For those of our members in regional groups outside of London, the People’s Assembly are organising coaches from across the country. To see if there is one near to you, have a look at their website: http://www.thepeoplesassembly.org.uk
It would be great to get as many of us there as possible. We are getting a small number of t-shirts printed to see what they look like. If you would like one, bring £10 with you on the day, first come first served! If you have any questions or want to know where we are on the day, feel free to tweet us at @commpsychUK
If you can’t make it to the march, it could be a great opportunity to have a conversation with someone new about the impact of austerity. Our second briefing paper, ‘Improving Public Discussion about Inequality’ might be able to help. Have a read for some ideas about how to communicate the impact of austerity in engaging ways and reach beyond those marching with us on the 16th: https://psychagainstausterity.wordpress.com/briefing-paper-preaching-to-the-non-converted/
With best wishes,
Psychologists Against Austerity.
