    Forest Recreation Ground in Nottingham, United Kingdom

    Nottingham Coaches to Tories Out National Demo

    NOT ONE MORE DAY | #TORIESOUT | NO MORE AUSTERITY - Nottingham Coaches to the National Demo

    Leaves the Forest Recreation Ground, Nottingham, at 8am returning the same day.

    The General Election result was devastating for Theresa May and the Conservatives. She called it to gain a bigger majority in Parliament but failed spectacularly to deliver on that. Now the Conservative Party are in chaos, forced to try to prop up a Government with the deeply conservative and regressive DUP. Even if they can get a Queens Speech through Parliament this arrangement is unsustainable, it won't last for long.

    The Election result represents a rejection of Tory policies. They have no mandate; already the Government has suggested they may have to ease their austerity plans because of huge opposition. We need to make sure the full force of that opposition is felt. If we continue to mobilise in huge numbers we can deepen the crisis for the Conservatives and force big concessions on the NHS, education, housing and jobs. There is already talk of another General Election in the next few months which would likely see the Tories loose further support and be unable to form a Government.

    Protests have sprung up across the country and there are many more planned in the next few days, we're supporting all actions and events against Theresa May's attempt at forming a Government. On Saturday 1 July we want to invite everyone - from campaigns and community groups all over the country, from the trade unions, from political parties, and any individual - to come together in one massive show of strength. We're marching against another 5 years of a Tory Government committed to austerity, cuts and privatisation. And we're marching for a decent health service, education system, housing, jobs and living standards for all. Join us, bring your friends and spread the word.
