March For the Alternative

Jobs, Growth, Justice
26 March 2010
11:00 am, Victoria Embankment to Hyde Park

Government spending cuts will damage public services and put more than a million out of work. They will hit the vulnerable, damage communities and undermine much of what holds us together as a society. Ministers say there is no alternative. But both of the government’s two key decisions are political choices, not economic necessity. That is why it is the March for the Alternative – an alternative in which rich individuals and big companies have to pay all their tax, that the banks pay a Robin Hood tax and on in which we strain every sinew to create jobs and boost the sustainable economic growth that will generate the prosperity which is the only long term way to close the deficit and reduce the nation’s debt.
