The March for the Alternative is expected to be the largest civil society demonstration in many years. However we realise that it’s not practical or feasible for everyone join in the march. Whether you’re attending the march or not you can help create an online protest that matches that on the street. Here are some suggestions, courtesy of our friends at False Economy.
Here’s a great short documentary exploring some of the alternatives to the government’s programme of fast, deep cuts to public spending and public services. Despite what many would have you believe, there most certainly IS an alternative – join us tomorrow to march for it!
When you make it to Hyde Park on Saturday afternoon, you could well be holding a bit of history in your hands. A project of the Museum of London and Goldsmiths University is looking to preserve a record of popular protest, and are looking to find a new home for your placards, banners, props and flags.
Here’s the winner of our cuts video contest, but judging it was tricky, with more than 40 great entries. The judges settled on five winning and commended entries, and we’ll be showing them on the big screen at the rally in Hyde Park on Saturday. If you can’t wait til then, False Economy have rounded them up on their site for a sneak preview.
Can’t make the march, but want to show your support? We’re backing this initiative of Disabled People Against Cuts and Beyond Clicktivism to map solidarity messages around the country from disabled people and allies who cannot make it to the march.
