To all Branches and Regional Councils

Dear Colleagues,

NOT ONE MORE DAY, PEOPLES’ ASSEMBLY DEMONSTRATION, 1 JULY

NOTE: PARTICIPATION IS A LEGITIMATE USE OF BRANCH EXPENDITURE

After the last few days I am sure you all agree that it is now vital that we take to the streets on July 1st and tell the new “Coalition of Chaos” to go. The General Election result was a disaster for the Tories and Theresa May, despite the massive media bias in their favour and now they are completely unstable, forced to hobble on, propped up by the deeply conservative and regressive DUP who are also opposed to the peace process in Ireland. This bail out arrangement aimed at thwarting the popular will for real change won't last for long.

The people’s rejection of austerity means they have no true mandate and we need to make sure the full force of our opposition to them continuing is felt. If our members and the public mobilise in huge numbers we can deepen the crisis for the Tories and make it clear they have no legitimacy for another 5 years committed to austerity, cuts and privatisation.

Further details will be provided soon as to where RMT members should assemble but in the meantime claim this date in your diary and please bring this to the attention of members.  Plan to join us, bring your friends and spread the word. Do everything you can to maximise attendance. Participation is a legitimate use of branch expenditure.

Yours sincerely,

 

Mick Cash
General Secretary
