Anti-Austerity March

Thanks to Cas Hawkins for the photos. Here’s an extract from Ron Mendel’s account, to give you a flavour.

The march was huge, well over 200,000 participants, and consisted of entire families,  young  and old, and every movement for social justice and peace one can think of.

More important perhaps than the breadth of support was the espirit de corps of the participants  – buoyant, defiant and committed. Talking to a number of marchers (not only my family ) I was encouraged by our shared sense of purpose which a  national demonstration of this size and scope can reinforce. I think I do not just speak for myself that we feel more energised,  inspired and committed to building a mass movement against austerity. Of course, that means some of the demanding work needs to be done locally, and towards that end hopefully we can initiate the process of forging an ecumenical coalition of activists and others in Northamptonshire.

DPAC held a successful stall against the cutting of the Independent Living Fund. See the DPAC page for some good photos by Steve White: https://www.facebook.com/groups/322616744503207/?fref=ts
