David Cameron likes to talk about creating the Big Society. What he doesn’t get is that we already have a Big Society, and it will be represented today on the People 1st demo in Glasgow.
Today, the Trade Union Movement is marching side by side with faith groups, equality organisations, community campaigners, pensioners and students. We are marching with people from all walks of life to tell the Coalition and their acolytes that we do not intend to stand idly by and let them wreck our economy and our public services, destroy our jobs and communities or abandon those who are most in need.
We are taking to the streets because we refuse to accept that austerity is necessary or just.
