People’s Assembly Against Austerity: A message from Tony Benn


A message from Tony Benn

Dear friends and comrades,
It was a privilege to be asked to speak at the People’s Assembly on 22 June, which launched a united campaign against the cuts. The People’s Assembly has a plain and simple goal: to make the government abandon its austerity programme and if it will not, to replace it with one that will. I know that you support this goal, but to achieve it we need your help.

Since 22 June we have built a national organisation. Local assemblies are being organised the length and breadth of the country. We are organising thousands to attend the protest march and rally at the Tory party conference in Manchester on 29 September. Preparations are underway for a day of civil disobedience on 5 November. All this has been achieved by volunteers and some generous donations.

But to build our campaign we need more resources and regular funding. Building a national and local organisation, developing our website and e-communications, writing and printing leaflets all cost money. Regular monthly donations will make a real difference to the People’s Assembly. We are asking supporters to give whatever they can each month, however big or small.

Yours in solidarity,

Tony Benn
