Make some noise against poverty - bring your empty pots and pans!

Noise_FB_Masthead.jpgThis Winter, some families in Nottingham will not be able to fill the pot, let alone heat it. Our empty pots and pans will sound out in protest as we launch our campaign against hunger. As the Chancellor makes his Autumn statement, telling us Austerity is working, we will send a noisy reply that it isn't working for us. Part of the Peoples' Assembly national day of action.

    Icelandic protests against bank bailouts in 2009: 'Demonstrators banged pots and honked horns to disrupt the year's first meeting of Prime Minister Geir Haarde and the Althing. The use of pots and pans saw the local press refer to the event as the "Kitchenware Revolution".'

    Soaring numbers of families with disabled children are being forced to go without food or heating because they can no longer afford the basics, a major study shows.

    Please get in touch if you would like to help with this event, and don't forget to share with your friends on facebook. Here's a poster you can share on email too. We can bring a small number of spare pots and pans - so if you or your friends are coming straight from work, you'll have something to bang! Look forward to seeing you there.

    In Canada, the pots and pans protest -or casseroles - grew into a huge social movement. Nice video too... http://vimeo.com/42848523

    In this day and age of equality in the UK there should be no lower classes.
