Renationalise energy, water, railways, buses, the Royal Mail and care work.

Introduce proportional representation (STV) for parliamentary elections and local elections.

No Second jobs for MPs, including a ban on holding paid directorships or consultancies.

Tighten the rules on media ownership so no individual or company owns more than 20% of any media market.

Repeal the Welfare Reform Act 2012.

Free school meals for all primary school children.

A Robin Hood tax on high value transactions in the finance sector.

A universal basic income.

Free university education and student debt written off.

This type of activism has worked in France resulting in Macron making concessions. It can work for us.

Our long term demands are still a matter for debate within our membership and are not final. Even if you don't agree with some of our demands, we would still like to welcome you to our organisation. Because as part of our organisation you will have your voice heard and our demands could be amended and changed.

This action with be NVDA (non violent direct action). We do not believe static protests or agreed A-B marches are going to change anything, they haven't in the last 8 years. So we believe it is time to step outside the limits of approved dissent to make our demands heard.

Please help us by inviting all your friends and contacts and making this action one that starts a movement that can achieve real change!!!
