The demonstration is supported by:
The PCS, NUJ, UCU and CWU, NUS, ASLEF, the Labour Representation Committee, nationally, as well as many local trade union and campaign bodies.
John McDonnell MP, Mark Serwotka, general secretary of the PCS, Romayne Phoenix of the Green Party, Dr. Jacky Davis from Keep Our NHS Public, Birmingham Respect councillor, Salma Yaqoob, Linda Burnip, campaign co-ordinator Local Housing Allowance Reform Group, Dina Garane, Greek trade unionist and leading activist in general strikes, and Portuguese Left Bloc MP, Jorge Duarte Costa.
Over the coming weeks supporters of RtW should push for the widest possible backing for this protest, organise local public meetings to build it with a wide array of speakers and get transport organised to Birmingham.
This protest was a massive demonstration to Con-Dem cuts and austerity.
