London, UK: Following months of demonstrations, occupations of town halls and other buildings, road blockades and widespread campaigning, a national protest against the cuts to social spending and for the alternatives is taking place on Saturday, March 26th.
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 point 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. Reporters for Indymedia London say, "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."
Locally, the US Uncut San Francisco team has called for a demonstration on the same day starting at 10:30am at an unnamed bank near the 24th St. BART station.
