Austerity can suck my…

Standard

Firstly, gutted I can’t be at the People’s Assembly Anti-Austerity March today 😦 I have a 50th birthday party to attend. But I’ll be thinking of all the fabulous people who’ve made efforts to get to London from all over the country to stand up for what’s right.

For some of today’sΒ protesters, Austerity is painfully-real. Anyone with sick or disabled loved-ones, whose right to good health care is being stripped from them by the cuts, or any teachers seeing education going down the shitter, will know too well. And their participation in the march will be out of utter desperation. But for others – much like myself – Austerity has had little effect on them personally, but it is compassion and empathy that has got their arses off the sofa and into the capital. Our world could do with a lot more of those two things.

Anyway, here are a few photos from back in first year of uni when I hopped on a bus down to London with the Labour Society to march against the rise of tuition fees…
