London calling: Massive Public Assembly against Austerity and Cuts – Updates

0

45 minuntes video, camera in the same place; estimated 50,000 people at the anti-austerity public assembly in London and BBC and other televisions in UK censored it.

BBC managed to get themselves to tweet one message which seemed as an excuse, but then deleted it:

via Public Assembly and Anti-Fascist Action for Greece: “What a pathetic response from the taxpayer’s BBC Facebook page. So ‘why did @BBCNews tweet about @pplsassembly march then delete it?http://t.co/foXibsHPDM.’ Perhaps because they are also cutting journalists and other tax funded workers? Please make a complaint about State censorship and staff cuts at http://www.bbc.co.uk/complaints/, comment on their Facebook page & retweet about them deleting the tweet… http://twitter.com/the_dbh/status/480651260434350080

50,000 people, by some estimates, gathered at an amazing public assembly in London, demanding a stop to cuts, austerity, privatizations; complete mainstream media black-out. photo via Red Labour

#NoMoreAusterity : Thousands – at least 4,000, some say 10,000 some 50,000, are participating now in London at a public assembly to have austerity done with and cuts stopped, as well as privatization of public services and utilities stopped.

 The People’s Assembly, check out their site here“The People’s Assembly, Trade Unions and campaign groups are organising a national demonstration and free festival to demand the alternative.  Living standards continue to drop, forcing millions into poverty, yet the politicians remain addicted to austerity.  This demonstration will assemble right on the BBC’s doorstep and march to Parliament to demand that the alternative to austerity is no longer ignored. Join us.”

This week Wikileaks exposed a huge conspiracy by governments, for which they are not been held accountable yet:  “The whistleblower and transparency website WikiLeaks published on Thursday the secret draft text of the Trade in Services Agreement (TISA) Financial Services Annex, a controversial global trade agreement promoted by the United States and European Union that covers 50 countries and is opposed by global trade unions and anti-globalization activists.” Read it all, here.
