Women’s Assembly Against Austerity
10am – 5pm, Conway Hall, Red Lion Square, London. Women remain at the sharp end of the government’s economic and social austerity policies. As women’s unemployment rises, wages fall, the pay gap widens, benefits are cut and household and living costs rise, women face a daily struggle to keep themselves and their families from slipping deeper into poverty. Info and register
Hands off our Unions
6.30pm, Camden Centre, Bidborough Street, London WC1H 9AU. Defend the right to resist national speaking tour launch rally. The government’s announcement of an inquiry into trade union tactics is further proof of its determination to undermine the right to protest against its austerity programme. We pledge ourselves to resist this attack. Speakers include: Len McCluskey, Unite the Union, Mark Serwotka, Public and Commercial Services Union, Francesca Martinez, Comedian, John Hendy QC and others. Register for a free event.
Stop the Privatisation of Student Debt
‘No sell off of the student loan book’. In November, the government sold off all student loans taken before 1998 and worth £900m to a private debt collector for £160m.
