As the Conservative government cuts tax credits reducing the income of people already struggling with low pay, cuts what many sick and disabled people newly claiming Employment and Support Allowance receive to live on, attacks the rights of workers to organise collectively and take industrial action, continues to privatise the NHS, and presides over a housing crisis, the People's Assemly say: 

"We want to mobilise the biggest possible opposition on the streets, in our workplaces and communities which can force the Government out of office."
