People from across Oxford and surrounding towns will be attending the


Oxford People’s Assembly

on Saturday, 12 October 2013 at 2:00pm

at the Oxford Brookes University Headington Hill Campus on London Road.  


Local people's assemblies across Britain have been attracting hundreds of people since the spring.


Participants will be able to join workshops on how the coalition government’s policies of cuts and privatisation have impacted on topics including housing, women’s issues, racial equality, education and healthcare and how we can act together to change this.


“This Oxford People’s Assembly is bottom-led and action-oriented.  We will send the issues and needs of Oxford people back to the national organisation and make actions based on the priorities of our local participants,” said Dan Fearnley, a Unison steward.  


This event will bring people together to consider an economic alternative to defend public services and create living wage jobs, develop and support local actions to stop cuts and privatisation and build for the National Day of Civil Disobedience on 5 November 2013.


Join in workshops that consider how the cuts and privatisation in health, housing, welfare reform and energy affect you and others, and how we can act together to change this. With Save Our Royal Mail, Oxford Feminist Network, Oxon Keep Our NHS Public, Oxford Anti-Bedroom Tax Campaign, Oxford School Buses Action Group, Defend School History, OX4 Democracy, Oxford UK UnCut, Unite the Resistance and others.


Speakers include:  Adam Ramsay (OpenDemocracy), Ellen Clifford (Disabled People Against the Cuts), and Lee Jasper (Black Activists Rise Against Cuts).


With support and involvement by Save Our Royal Mail, Oxford Feminist Network, Oxon Keep Our NHS Public, Oxford Anti-Bedroom Tax Campaign, Oxford School Buses Action Group, Defend School History, OX4 Democracy, Oxford UK Uncut, Oxford Unite the Resistance and others.
