Coaches from Gloucestershire to "End Austerity Now" demonstration
The People’s Assembly Against Austerity is calling a major national "End Austerity Now" demonstration & festival on Saturday 20th June to send a clear message to the Tory government: we demand an alternative to austerity and to policies that only benefit those at the top.
Stroud Against the Cuts is working with other local organisations to arrange transport by coach to the protest.
Coaches will leave from both Stroud and Gloucester (at around 8am on the day).
If you live elsewhere, including Cheltenham or Cirencester, please get in touch - we will arrange pick-up points as most appropriate depending on numbers. Final details will be circulated two weeks before the event, when we have a better idea of numbers. Already 50 people have booked with us to travel from Gloucestershire to London.
Tickets will cost £12 waged, £5 unwaged. No-one will be turned away for lack of funds but PLEASE BOOK your place(s).
If you would a seat on a coach, please contact: Hannah (one of SATC co-ordinators) via email:
. Alternatively call James Beecher on 07734 058789.
The new Stroud Against the Cuts Facebook page has an "Gloucestershire travels to the "End Austerity Now" demonstration" event where we will regularly share updates about the event, enabling you to help us publicise it ('joining' this will not guarantee you a seat - see above methods). There is also a Facebook event page for the national protest.
