Brighton People's Assembly

The People's Assembly:

1. Is a broad united national campaign against austerity, cuts and privatisation in our workplaces, community and welfare services, based on general agreement with the signatories’ Founding Statement.

2. Is linked to no political party, committed to open non-sectarian working and dedicated to supplementing, rather than supplanting, trade union, student, pensioner and community opposition to austerity measures.

3. Is based on affiliation by individual supporters, unions nationally and locally, anti-cuts campaigns, and other student, pensioner, unemployed, disabled people’s, women’s, Black people’s, youth and LGBT campaigning organisations.

4. Aspires to support, encourage, coordinate joint action, and facilitate a transfer of experience rather than to command.

5. Encourages the establishment of new local campaigns and/or People’s Assemblies.

6. Organises newsletters, a website, twitter, Facebook and social media, meetings, conferences, lobbies, rallies, marches, demonstrations and other events.

7. Vehemently opposes all proposals to “solve” the crisis by discrimination or scapegoating on grounds of disability, race, religion, ethnic origin, nationality, gender, age, sexual orientation or identity.

8. Liaises closely with similar movements in other countries resisting austerity measures.

9. Encourages a wide debate on how to protect the welfare state and develop an alternative programme for economic and social recovery.

We want a tax system that shares the UK’s wealth more fairly, instead of slashing benefits and squeezing the incomes of working people.

· We want decent public services available to all those in need, instead of handing our public services to multinational corporations out to make a profit.

· We want to fund decent public health care, housing, transport and pensions, instead of spending billions on Trident and other weapons of mass destruction.

· We need work that pays a living wage and contributes to a sustainable future for our planet, instead of insecure and badly paid jobs.

· We to listen to each other and rebuild a sense of unity and community, instead of blaming the poor, sick and disabled people.

We stand alongside all those people and organisations resisting austerity and offer practical support and work with other groups, in order to strengthen our collective voice. We counter the pro-austerity myths of the media and the mainstream politicians and welcome all those who support these aims into a broad and united movement of resistance to austerity.
