On Saturday, UkUncut called a national day of action as an attempt to divert the celebratory energies of the ‘Great British Summer’ towards the fight against austerity. This video captures the aims and ambitions of the London event outside the house of the Deputy Prime Minister.
On Saturday, UkUncut called a national day of action. The strategy? To establish a series of anti-austerity ‘street parties’, diverting the energy of this ‘celebratory’ season to new and more productive ends. Events occurred across the UK from Crawley to Newcastle as people took to the streets to share the message that despite the distractions of the coming “national” events, the fight for public services is long from over: ‘This is not just a party, it is a direct action’.
