Sign Up to Build the Cost of Living Coalition

On June 18th there were protests across the country to demand action on the Cost of Living Crisis.

A broad coalition  of pensioners, students workers and political parties including People Before Profit called for real action on

  • Energy costs: we demand price controls and a windfall to stop profiteering
  • Housing costs: we need rent controls and reductions
  • Protecting incomes: pensions and social welfare must be inflation proofed. Workers need a pay rise.
  • Sharing the wealth: The inflation crises is hitting those with least. Profits, the wealth of millionaires and CEO pay continues to boom. We need taxes to redistribute resources to those who need them.
 

These protests were the first step in the building of a movement on the cost of living. The coalition will now be seeking to build local grassroots groups that can mobilise huge numbers over the coming months.

We need to send a strong message that action is needed now.  We need large protests to say we can’t wait any longer.

Sign up to the Cost of Living Coalition and help build in your local area.

Michael Jackson is one of the main individuals responsible for not only the massacre perpetrated by the Parachute Regiment on Bloody Sunday, but also the cover up afterwards. Far from being held to account for his actions he went on to have a long career eventually being promoted to Chief of the General Staff, the head of the British Army.

It is long past time he answered for his crimes and People Before Profit support the demand of the Bloody Sunday families that he face prosecution.
