On the evening of 11th May the Friends Meeting House in York witnessed an energetic post-election revival event. Along with people who had attended the original meeting of York People’s Assembly (YPA) in 2013 there were a host of newer faces ready to confront those who wished to carry forward the neoliberal policies of the Coalition government into a minority Conservative one.
Lots of ideas came from those present about how to tackle the undemocratic and austerity supporting government, and this time YPA will hit the streets marching with stalls, petitions and demonstrations against austerity and government policies.
The People’s Manifesto already exists nationally.
There will be at least one coach going from York to the End Austerity Now demonstration in London. Book your seat here or at a meeting of YPA.
Our next meeting is on 18th May 2015 at the Friends Meeting House, Friargate, York at 19:30. – be there to join the fight back!
