General secretary Dave Prentis is urging as many UNISON members as possible to join the national demonstration in London this Saturday, 1 July, against Theresa May’s government.
Organised by the the People’s Assembly, hundreds of thousands are expected to take to the streets to call for an end to the government’s ongoing austerity agenda and demand properly funded public services.
Mr Prentis will be one of the keynote speakers as the march assembles in Portland Place, central London, from noon.
“Theresa May’s government is far from strong and stable – it’s on the ropes,” he said today.
“That’s why it’s so important to be out on the streets, making our voices heard against this failed government and the failed ideology of austerity.
“This weekend, I want to see UNISON members out in force, raising their voices and standing up for our public services. By standing together we can and will change this government, and this country.”
The demonstration will start at BBC Broadcasting house at 12 noon and from there, will march to Parliament Square.
