Next Saturday... at long last

With all that's being thrown at us by the current government, socialists and trade unionists despaired that it took the TUC so long to organise, well, anything in response.

Finally a day was set for a demonstration... 26 March. Too late! many of us cried, too little too late. That's as maybe now. The fact is that the TUC's "March for the alternative (jobs, growth, justice)" is finally upon us. Let's make it a good one.

Here's Barnet Unison's advice on where Barnet folks can meet up to march as a block - if they like:
Public Services...Don’t wait until they’re gone to defend them!

Trade Union members, friends, work colleagues, families, community groups and residents from Barnet are going to march together as a community.

Join us on Saturday 26th March 2011 and say NO to unfair and unnecessary spending cuts!

Meeting places in Barnet:

Finchley Central Tube Station: 9-9:15am (sharp)

Brent Cross Tube station: 9-9:15am (sharp)

Final rendezvous is outside the Savoy Hotel*, Strand, London, WC2R 0EU from 9:30am till 11am, nearest Tube Leicester Square.

March starts from 11am at the Embankment and marches to Hyde Park for a rally from 1.30pm.

* = Scene of Peasants Revolt 1381.

The Savoy? Do try not to make too much noise, I often enjoy a quiet cocktail there before luncheon - and I don't suppose you could manage to get your "peasants" to pick up and take away their litter, could you?
