On the 20th June, 2015, The People's Assembly Against Austerity organised a "End Austerity Now" demonstration in London. Stroud Against the Cuts, working with Cheltenham & Gloucester Against Cuts, the Stroud and Cheltenham branches of the Green Party, and local branches of unions Unite and Unison, arranged three coaches to travel from Stroud and Cheltenham, picking up almost 150 people from these towns as well as Gloucester and Cirencester.

Here are some photos and links to reports from the day:
