Live stream from London, UK, 26th March
There will be a live radio stream from London, UK this Saturday 26 March reporting from a huge action day against cuts of social services. Several hundred thousand people are expected to protest.
London, UK: Following months of demonstrations, occupations of town hall's and other buildings, road blockades and widespread campaigning, the national protest against the cuts and for the alternatives is finally taking place on Saturday 26th March at 11am.
Hundreds of thousands are expected to march in the biggest street mobilization since the anti-war march of 2003. Following several calls for people to do more than simply march from A to B, there are a range of actions planned including feeder marches, sit downs, UKuncut occupations on Oxford Street, people's assemblies, and yet more occupations of different locations, including Hyde park and Trafalgar Square. It's clear March 26th will be an important expression of anger, and solidarity, and one which will show that these are issues which are increasingly affecting the majority of us.
Whilst the Trades Union Congress has announced "there are no official feeder marches" in an echo of the failure by the National Union of Students to support their own students, rank and file anti-cuts campaigners are preparing several feeder marches: The Education Bloc from University of London Union, a South London feeder from Kennington park, including a Radical Workers Bloc and a North London Feeder from Camden. Other groups are meeting in advance to march together on the day including a newly announced East London Dissident feeder march.
