National Policy Circular NP/BO/129/15

To the Secretary all Branches, Regional Councils,
Council of Executive Members, Regional Offices.

Dear Colleagues,

National TUC Demonstration Manchester October 4th

After the last few days I am sure you all agree that this is a Government hell bent on delivering austerity to all those who can least afford it whilst privatising everything that is left of our public services.

The TUC has agreed to organise a national demonstration in Manchester on Sunday 4 October beginning with a march through the centre, culminating in a rally close to the Conservative Party Conference.

Trade unions, workers and community organisations from across the country will descend on Manchester to demonstrate against more privatisation, more destructive cuts, more anti trade union laws and more attacks on our communities.

Further details on the route, speakers and timings will be circulated in the coming weeks.

The People’s Assembly are also planning 5 days of events, actions, gigs, comedy shows, meetings, workshops and rallies from 3 - 7 October for the whole duration of the conference

We have heard and know exactly what to expect from this Tory government. Now is the time for us to mobilise, to spread the word and to show the full force of anti-austerity opinion in Britain. I urge you all to claim the date, let members know and mobilise now to ensure we are a large organised RMT bloc on the day and that this demonstration is the biggest protest seen in Great Britain for many years.

Please do everything you can to support and organise attendance on the day.

Yours sincerely,

Mick Cash
General Secretary
