Hull People’s Assembly Against Austerity: Dates for Your Diary

Hull People’s Assembly Against Austerity will be campaigning against the cuts being forced upon us by the Cabinet of Millionaires in London. Today the Bank of England announced that they have spent £375 BILLION printing money. This has not gone into reviving our moribund economy, raising flatlined wages or building much needed housing for our communities. Instead this cash has gone to hedge funds and gambling on the markets. In addition the millionaires awarded themselves a £40,000 a year tax break which has fuelled a stock market boom. The FTSE is expected to break all records this year. The rest of us are faced with unending austerity and suffering for millions.
“They say CUTBACK, we say FIGHTBACK!

We are starting by building for a Public Meeting to take place on Wednesday 29th January on the Bedroom Tax and Hull City Council cuts 7.30 Endike Lane Unity Community Resource Centre HU6 8AQ. Leafleting 11am Saturday 11th and 18th Jan outside Endike Lane shops at the top of Oldstead Ave.
