Pembrokeshire branch of 'Peoples' Assembly' to meet for second time
5:54pm Wednesday 28th August 2013 in News
THE Pembrokeshire branch of the People's Assembly will meet for a second time at the Phoenix Centre, in Goodwick, on Tuesday, September 3.
The branch, which held its first meeting last month, is part of the People’s Assembly Against Austerity – a national forum that aims to “provide a national forum for anti-austerity views which, while increasingly popular, are barely represented in parliament”.
Branch spokesman Jim Scott said: "We aim to engage locally with all other campaign groups who are defending social justice and fighting to prevent the privatization of public services like the NHS, which hard working, tax paying people have fought for and paid for more than 60 years."
The branch is also arranging coach travel from Pembrokeshire to Manchester on September 29 for a demonstration against cuts to the NHS.
Backed by former MP Tony Benn, Unite general secretary Len McCluskey and comedian Arthur Smith among others, meetings are open to people of all political backgrounds, including those with no voting preference.
The meeting will be held at 7.30pm, at the Phoenix Centre.
