Make the 24th November DAY X for the Coalition
November 14, 2010 16 Comments
The 10th November protest at Millbank has drawn comparisons with the poll tax riot of 31st March 1990. This was followed by a wave of demonstrations at town halls and councils and a civil disobedience campaign of non-payment. By November 1990 the tax had been abolished and Margaret Thatcher had resigned.
We need to ramp up action against the Con-Dem Coalition in the same way now. Let’s turn Wednesday 24th November into DAY X for the Coaliton!
TARGET LIB DEMS AFTER NEW BETRAYAL
After revelations in the Guardian newspaper showing that the Liberal Democrats planned all along to renege on their promises about tuition fees, we want a day of mass walkouts to converge on a demonstration outside the Lib Dem HQ at 2pm.
STUDENTS AND WORKERS UNITE
This will be followed by an early evening demonstration on Downing Street bringing together students with trade unionists, the unemployed and everyone under attack by the Con-Dems.
PRESS CONFERENCE AND COORDINATING MEETING
The Education Activist Network will hold a press conference at the New Academic Building (LSE) on Monday 15 November at 2pm. The co-ordination meeting for these actions will be taking place at King’s College, London (Strand) on Monday, 15 November at 6pm.
