Get ready for the 26 March TUC anti-cuts demo in London

Get in touch for tickets to get a coach from Leeds

The Trade Union Congress has called a national demo against the cuts for 26 March in London. Already 500 coaches and a number of trains have been booked from across the country for what will be an historic demo. We are aiming for a million marchers against the cuts, so make plans to get down to London and be part of it! More info from the official website here. March for the Alternative

Public services, benefits, education, pensions, the NHS – everything the working class has won over the last decades to make life better is at risk as the Tories prepare to privatise and cut their way through another term of office, and finish the job that Thatcher began.

You can pledge to march here. Pledge to March
