Help us build the Coalition of Resistance against cuts and privatisation
This neo-Liberal government is more radical than that of Mrs Thatcher, they are going to break Britain with the cuts, cuts that are not need in services if were to scrap Trident and tax the wealthy, the left in Britain have been in retreat for decades, we need to build the resistance or face chaos, please spread the word.
Thank you adding your name to the Coalition of Resistance statement. Support in our first week has been incredible, with well over 3,500 people pledging their names and offering support. Other people signing this week include comedian and activist Mark Thomas, Andrew Murray, chair of the Stop the War Coalition, writer A L Kennedy and actor Roger Lloyd Pack.
What you can do to help:
Ask everyone you know to sign the statement - available here. A printed version with a sign up sheet is available here.
There's a planning meeting for the Coalition of Resistance at 7pm on Thursday, 2 September, in University of London Union, Malet St, London WC1E 7HY. Please try to attend. We'll be holding other meetings around the country - details to follow shortly.
Set up a local Coalition of Resistance meeting, with everyone who wants to oppose the cuts invited. We can supply speakers nationally to help build the campaign in your local area. Let us know what events you have organised.
We'll email you with details and a booking form for the 27th November conference soon.
Get your trade union branch, tenants' association, anti-cuts group, pensioners' association, club or society to back the statement.
Make a donation to the campaign.
Cheques should be made out to "Coalition of Resistance", and mailed to Coalition of Resistance, c/o Housman's Bookshop, 5 Caledonian Road, London N1 9DX.
