Dual Power / Resist26 organising meeting this Saturday in London!
#resist26 #stay41
When? Saturday February 26, 3pm to 5.30pm,
Where? St. Martin’s Community Centre, 43 Carol St., NW1, Camden Town tube

4 weeks to the big day!
What needs planning for before during and after the big TUC march?

Places:

Now that governments can only offer endless austerity for everyone (except the rich), people can only get angrier.

Now that student protesters have shown the power of direct action, thousands will want to do more than just march from A to B on the 26 March TUC demo.

Now that street protests have proved so effective in Tunis and Cairo, it would be tragic if the biggest London demonstration for years just repeated the mistakes of the 2003 anti-war demo - when a million people listened to speeches and then went home.

We need to start organising now so we can encourage people to be as imaginative, as effective and as free from police obstruction as is possible on 26 March.

We need to help coordinate a wide variety of web publicity, stickers, posters, street theatre, sound systems, legal defence and to distribute thousands of flyers or newspapers on the demo.

We also need to coordinate mass actions, occupations or people’s assemblies that inspire and involve as many people as possible on the day itself.
