March & Rally in Manchester, Sunday 29th September 2013


The People’s Assembly call for a national demonstration with supporters of the National Health Service and all those who want to defend jobs, services and a decent welfare state will be marching in Manchester to deliver a clear message to Conservative Party Conference. That message will be not one more cut, stop privatisation of our public services and stop the sell off and closure of the NHS.

The demonstration is supported by every major trade union and campaigning group and is being organised by the TUC.

Assembling at Liverpool Road (M3 4FP) in Manchester from 11am, and marching to a rally in Whitworth Park.

The protest will highlight the impact of huge job losses and spending cuts across the health service, as well as the rapid sell-off of the most lucrative parts of the NHS to private healthcare companies – many of whom like Circle are also Conservative Party donors.

The event will also raise concerns about the wider effect that government economic policies are having upon communities across the UK.
