Westminster Call Out: MASS STRIKERS’ ASSEMBLY in WESTMINSTER – 30 JUNE 2011

On Thursday 30 June, hundreds of thousands of us will be out on the streets striking and supporting the strikes. We’re withdrawing our labour because we’re outraged at being expected to suffer the consequences of an economic crisis caused by selfish bankers and unaccountable corporations. Our public services, jobs, pensions and whole future are under attack by politicians whose programme none of us voted for.

Inspired by movements currently unfolding across the world – Spain, Greece, North Africa, the Middle East and beyond – we’re responding with PEOPLE’S ASSEMBLIES to support those on strike and build a massive grassroots movement reaching beyond national boundaries and single days of industrial action. People’s Assemblies have no leaders, so every voice counts, ensuring equality for all. Occupying streets and city squares is a natural expression of our power: real democracy now.

 11am, Lincoln Inn Fields: Join the J30 Strikers’ Assembly Bloc on the trade union march.

Then come to the Strikers’ Assembly congregating near Westminster Central Hall. Find us under the “People’s Assembly” banner.A siren will announce the opening of the event!

Real Democracy Now!

  2. Exponemos las irregularidades del proceso judicial por la Declaración de Ruina de nuestra vivienda sita en el nº9 de la c/ Brasil en Vigo (Pontevedra, España): http://mariadelpilarvillaronga.blogspot.com/ . Nos encantaría que publicarais nuestro caso de corrupción urbanística, ya que una de nuestras prioridades es darlo a conocer a la opinión pública.

    Gracias.

  3. I thought in the UK we had a “peoples assembly”, called a Parliament. Elected by everyone not just a minority of “activists”. This was elected to take action to sort out the financial mess partly created by the previous government. In the mortgage crisis that fueled the mess no one forced “us the people” to borrow more that we could afford in the hopes of making quick killings on property values – not to mention credit card debt. Without the despised Corporations there would be no wealth for anyone to share in.

  4. have you noticed there’s always money for wars ?

  5. 100 billion is lost each year through tax avoidance and tax evasion ? – ”tax evaders’ ‘and ”tax evasion deniers” can seriously damage your ecconomy and should be named and shamed, plus stalked by HM Revenue video team with middle of the night raids – who are these tax evaders, how did they get so blase about flaunting the law, if they get caught will they go to jail, or is that just for the poor who pay high tax and get paid low wages ?

  6. Support the strike on June 30th in London!

    On June 30th in London thousands of people affected by the cuts caused by bankers and the corporations who have corrupted our democracy, will join with hundreds of striking workers and march through the city, assembling later to discuss how to force the banks to pay for the crisis they caused!

    The protests and assemblies in Spain and Greece, and the inspired revolutions in the Arab world show us that – united and organised – we can transform our societies!

    Demonstrations against mining companies in Peru, protests against government plans to criminalise protests in Venezuela, student rebellions in Chile in defence of public education, and strikes by firefighters, metal workers, civil servants and teachers in Brazil demonstrate to the entire world that there is a real willingness to fight against the plans of our corrupted governments.

    We believe enough is enough of ineffectual political parties, who claim to work for us but only curtail our rights and follow the orders of international corporations who have stolen our countries. Iceland is a great example – they decided they wouldn’t pay off the debt for which they were not responsible. Responsibility rests only with the corrupt banks and speculators, who caused this crisis. The people are not responsible and we refuse to pay!

    Supporters in Brazil, Argentina, Venezuela, Bolivia, Peru, Columbia, Mexico, Panama, the United States and Germany – all urge Londoners to mobilise on June the 30th , and march through the city to show international solidarity, showing the governments that we are united with one voice!

  8. Hi all!

    If you want a decent theme song or inspiring link to a video ahead of J30, try this one.

    There’s a singer called Steve Tilston who has been around since the early 1970s and his new CD has a great song on it called Nottamun Town Return, which is a nightmare vision of London from the perspective of the riots earlier on this year. There’s a movie on youtube here-

    Here’s Nottamun Town return

    Good luck from Ireland, where I live now- I’d be out supporting the strikes if I was still in Wales or England.

    Best wishes and solidarity.

    John
