Coalition of Resistance Europe Against Austerity Conference – 21st October

Across Europe millions of people are taking to the streets to demand an end to austerity. There is an urgent need to link up these struggles.

On the 21st October there will be a Europe Against Austerity conference organised by the Coalition of Resistance and hosted by Unite at their London headquarters. This is the day after the national TUC demonstration for a Future that Works

This will be an important opportunity for trade unionists and anti-cuts activists to discuss plans for future common action. The conference is nearly full so please us know immediately if you would like to attend as a delegate from Birmingham Against the Cuts or contact them directly. The provisional agenda for the day is available here.

They will be livestreaming this event from our website for those that cannot make it.

Reel News will be showing a series of films from the recent demonstrations in Spain and Greece and the Greece Solidarity Campaign will be showing the film of their delegation visit to Athens. Award winning campaign photographer Guy Smallman will present an exhibition of his work. Breakfast is being provided by the Communication Workers Union.

There will be an international bloc on the TUC demonstration with COR, the GSC and others linking up with CND and Stop the War Coalition.

If you can provide homestay accomodation for the Saturday night for one or two of the international delegates please contact us.

There will be a post-demo social with food and music at the new radical venue, Firebox, on Saturday evening.
