Take to the streets against the cost of living crisis

This Saturday 12th February, activists, trade unionists and community groups all over the UK are taking to the streets to protest against this government and the cost of living crisis. These are such important demonstrations… and this is just the start! 

The Cost of Living Crisis has sparked a wave of anger. The feedback from trade unions is that there’s a huge appetite for us to keep the pressure up after Saturday 12 Feb and that people want to get out onto the streets to send a clear message to the government that we refuse to pay for their crisis. The People’s Assembly have now announced a second and third wave of demonstrations to take place around the UK on Saturday 5th March and Saturday 2nd April.

Public outrage is growing fast and our response is gaining momentum. Right now is the time for us all to come together in unity and build our collective resistance. It’s in our hands now…

PCS work with, and support, the People’s Assembly and a number of PCS Left Unity members from the NEC will be speaking on Saturday around the UK. They’ll be letting everyone know about our national campaign, our consultative ballot and the need to join up, coordinate action and work with other unions. Our speakers are:-

  • Newcastle – PCS President, Fran Heathcote
  • Liverpool – PCS Deputy President, Martin Cavanagh
  • Bristol – PCS NEC member, Hannah David
  • Nottingham – PCS NEC member, Paul Williams
  • Glasgow – PCS NEC member, Liz McGachey

PCS Left Unity

encourages all activists to use this Saturday’s demonstrations as a springboard to build and organise for the growing discontent and the waves of protest to come. Please try to attend your local demonstration and be part of the growing movement of opposition to this hated government. It’s a great opportunity to let others know about our PCS Pay, Pensions and Cost of Living Campaign.

See you on the streets!
