The march for the Lib Dem conference just 6 weeks ago cost a few hundred pounds.
We cannot let them stop us from marching, it is our democratic right to do so, and this sneaky ploy should be seen for what it is – fear. Fear of the public sector rising up against this government, fear of the amount of support the strike has got from the general public, fear that the movement against austerity only grows stronger and stronger.
They do not want to see tens of thousands marching through our streets against this government. We have to make sure that is what they see now. Spread the word – the march is still on, 11:30, Lionel Street Car Park.
The unions have also said they will march in defiance of the council’s demands.
And we now have a new chant for tomorrow:
10K? No Way! We will march, We won’t Pay!
