We want to make this Firework Night one which David Cameron will remember and remember for a long time!
The Peoples’ Assembly is calling for a day of protest in every town and city in the country.
In Birmingham we will be assembling at 5pm outside Waterstones by the Bullring. We will then see what people would like to do but it seems possible that we might visit some tax avoiding or zero hour contract organisations for a chat…..
If you are holding a protest on 5th November please let us know and we will advertise them for you.
Following the 4,000 strong launch of the People’s Assembly in London in June there will now be a People’s Assembly launch in Birmingham. This is an excellent chance to bring together campaigners from every field to build common ground in fighting austerity.
