Anti-Austerity March – London – 20.6.15

IMG_20150620_123849

This Saturday saw 250,000 working class people march through London in protest against the continuing Conservative Party’s ruthless and vicious policies of ‘Austerity’ which has included (but is not limited to) the privatisation of the National Health Service (NHS), the dismantling of the Welfare System, the selling-off of Social Housing Stock (i.e. ‘ no more Council Houses’), and the persecution of people with Disabilities.  It is the international bourgeois banking system that has caused all the economic problems the world is currently experiencing, and yet these very same greedy bankers have be rewarded with governmental financial bail-outs, whilst the poor, the vulnerable, and the ordinary have had to pay for it through the cancelling of welfare pay-outs, Social Services facilities, healthcare, free help for the Disabled, and government finance for community projects.  At the same time as the Tories have been slashing and burning the institutes of British Socialism, they have also been giving pointless tax-cuts to the rich in the UK!  It is estimated that around 10,000 Disabled people have died in the last 5 years as a direct result of the withdrawal of their benefit payments and medical treatment.  On top of this, the ordinary people in the UK – by far the majority – are experiencing their quality of life diminishing along with their life expectancy.  The minority rich are getting richer whilst the majority poor and ordinary are being slowly but deliberately deprived of dignity and life – tis is why we marched through London today with 250,000 other people!
