Brighton People’s Assembly Against Austerity 

Location: UK » South East » BN

We are a local group of activists, trade unionists and other concerned people who have joined together to oppose austerity.

The cuts which are destroying our society and the lives of so many of us are not necessary.  They don’t make economic sense.  The bankers’ crisis which led to austerity was caused by the greed of an unregulated financial industry, yet it is ordinary people who are paying the cost as wages are frozen, public services dismantled and benefits slashed.

Essential services such as health care are being sliced up for profit. Private companies are making millions in corporate welfare. Far from reducing public debt, austerity and privatisation are funnelling our common wealth into the pockets of the already rich minority.
