Thirty-five thousand march through London to herald the birth of a new movement for jobs, justice, climate
The Put People First March for Jobs, Justice, Climate has just finished. Police estimates said thirty-five thousand people marched through London calling for a radical break with the failures of the unfettered free market. Faith and women’s groups, trade unions, development and climate campaigners were all mixed together on one of the most colourful demonstrations in years. Not even the forecast sleet (it did rain heavily at one point!) could stop people demonstrating.
Next week, back to lobbying. The world’s trade union movement are in town to see our Prime Minister and others.
