Green Party deputy leaders Amelia Womack and Shahrar Ali came to support GPTU and the Green Bloc.
Over 50,000 protesters joined the march, including a strong Green Bloc led by the Green Party Trade Union Group banner. The demonstration called for an end to austerity, with the four demands of homes, health, jobs and education.
Join GPTU at the People’s Assembly Demo – SATURDAY 16th April, 1pm Assembling at 1pm on Gower Street, central London
Let’s make our presence felt as Greens and as Trade Unionists at the major People’s Assembly demo next Saturday! GPTU will be at the forefront of the Green Bloc with our brand new banner. Stand with us!
As Greens, we know that the austerity narrative is a lie. We know that cuts will only hit the poorest hardest. We know that we can only build a sustainable future, both economically and environmentally, through investment in green jobs and an overhaul of our energy, transport and housing systems.
