London anti-cuts demo & conference Oct 20th–21st: latest update

The following message from the Coalition of Resistance was received earlier today:

Volunteers needed for the day — 9am @ Temple & Embankment

Hundreds of thousands will demonstrate in Central London this Saturday against the cuts and in defence of the welfare state.

It’s set to be one of the biggest demonstrations in recent times.

The size of the demo is only restricted by how many people know about it, let’s make sure we go all out in the last 3 days to get as many people as possible there.

Publicity for the demonstration can be picked up from Housmans bookshop, 5 Caledonian Road, Kings Cross, London N1 or from Firebox, 106-108 Cromer Street, London WC1H 8BZ

Join the Coalition of Resistance team on October 20th – More volunteers needed

Coalition of Resistance is producing thousands of placards and a four page broadsheet to give out for free on the demonstration. We need hundreds of people to help on the day – please ask friends, workmates, family if they can help too.

We will have two main meet up points at 9am – Embankment Tube and Temple Tube. If your coming from outside London and can help when your transport arrives please also let us know.

If you can help please phone / text Sam on 07872481769 or email coalitionofresistance@mail.com

We also need help everyday this week in our office and making placards. Get in touch if you can help.

We have organised a social event for our volunteers and for the international delegates on the eve of the demonstration from 6pm onwards with acclaimed singer-songwriter Sean Taylor playing from his new album “Love Against Death”.

Coalition of Resistance Broadsheet
The Coalition of Resistance broadsheet leads with Tony Benn and has statements from Len McCluskey (Unite), Frances O’Grady (TUC) and Natalie Bennett (new leader of the Green Party). It puts a clear argument for No Cuts and what people can do next.
