Croydon TUC May Day Rally 30 April




 Croydon Assembly is calling on all trade union and community activists to give their support this coming Saturday, 30 April, to the Croydon TUC May Day March and Rally.

Under the slogan “Uniting Communities to Defeat the Tories”, the trade unions are demonstrating to mobilise support against the attacks on living standards, public services and democratic rights.

Junior doctors are in the forefront of the of the battle to defend the NHS, teachers are campaigning against the attacks on education, with the forcing of all schools to become academies, local government funding cuts threaten all community services.

The Croydon Assembly has linked up with all campaigns against austerity, cuts in public services, rising unemployment, anti trade- union laws, privatisation of the NHS and  TTIP.

The Assembly has put forward plans for a fairer, more democratic, more equal future.

This May Day rally is our opportunity to show the people of Croydon that not only is a fightback possible, but that it is happening now.

Join us, in the march from North End, the High Street, South End and Coombe Road to Ruskin House. Short speeches from community activists at the beginning and finally in the gardens of Ruskin House.

March led by the Schiehallion Pipe Band.

Then a musical festival, with bands and singing, plus the traditional barbecue.

Bring your banners, flyers and voices.

The Assembly point is North End, junction Station Road, near West Croydon Station, at 12 noon.
