Yorkshire and the Humber TUC

Better Way Demo, thank you for your support

​Thank you to everyone who took part in the demonstration on Saturday. So many people from different backgrounds joined together calling for a better way than the Coalition's destructive austerity policies. We created a great atmosphere that left Liberal Democrats in no doubt our opposition while emphasising the positive alternatives.

Our fantastic speakers leading the way

It was only right that on International Women's Day our women speakers articulated what's so damaging about austerity and the disproportionate impact it has on women. Whether it's through tackling tax avoidance, investing in a greener economy, paying a living wage or defending social security - there is a better way.

Thank you to everyone who helped play their part from delivering leaflets, to stewarding and marching with 3000 others through York and showing there is an alternative.
