Stop Boris Johnson - Get out on the streets

30 August 2019

The People's Assembly Against Austerity have called for demonstrations to take place across the country as anger continues to grow over Johnson's "smash and grab" against democracy by shutting down parliament to force through his No Deal Brexit.

Those gathered will demand an immediate general election -the only real people’s vote - and the chance to bring down a Tory Government desperately clinging on to power with a wafer thin majority of one.
Calls for an immediate general election will be led by Labour MPs including Laura Pidcock, who recently accused Johnson of an “abuse of power” ” warning of “a dangerous, anti-democratic precedent” being set by shutting down parliament in a bid to avoid scrutiny.
We believe it is clear the only way out of the crisis is for a general election to give the people the opportunity to bring down the hard right Tory government led by the unelected Boris Johnson.
The only way to end the Tory austerity nightmare is the election of a Anti Austerity government committed to saving our hospitals and schools, investing in housing, renationalising our public services and acting on behalf of the people, not Johnson and the Tories' pals in the banks and big business.
