The People’s Assembly looks set to be a historic event that will transform the anti-austerity movement in Britain. Already close to 3,000 people have registered to attend. Crucially we want the assembly to be focused around action.
The proposed declaration and action plan of the People’s Assembly:
The declaration represents the beginning of a democratic process leading towards a second People’s Assembly in early 2014. This declaration represents the views of all those who initially called for the People’s Assembly. We hope it will be endorsed by the People’s Assembly on 22nd June. It will then be open to the local People’s Assembly’s, union bodies and campaign groups who support the People’s Assembly to suggest amendments, additions, or deletions. These will then all be discussed and decided upon at the recall People’s Assembly in 2014.
The plans for action are simply the most obvious rallying points for a national anti-cuts movement for the remainder of 2013. They are not intended to supersede local or sectional action by existing campaigns or trade unions. They are intended to be focus national, collective action by the whole anti-austerity movement.

Most of the day will be based on sub-assemblies, broken into three sessions during the course of the day. This will total around 15 individual sessions devoted to discussing various aspects of the cuts and the fightback against them. The full timetable of workshops and sessions at the People’s Assembly will be available by the end of next week.
Looking forward to seeing you on the 22 June!
