The Peoples Assembly
About This Show
Show Info: The People's Assembly Podcast - fortnightly news, interviews and music from the anti austerity movement. Produced and presented by Jordan Reyne for the People's Assembly Against Austerity. About Us The People's Assembly Against Austerity are a UK based national campaign against austerity, cuts and privatisation in our workplaces, community and welfare services. We oppose all proposals to “solve” the UK crisis by discrimination or scapegoating on grounds of disability, race, religion, ethnic origin, nationality, gender, age, sexual orientation or identity. We aren't linked to a political party. Our goal is to support, encourage, coordinate joint action, and share information and experiences. What We Do. Aside from our news-based podcast, we organise newsletters, meetings, conferences, lobbies, rallies, marches, demonstrations and other events. We liaise closely with similar movements in other countries resisting austerity measures. We encourages a wider debate on how to protect the welfare state and develop an alternative programme for economic and social recovery. About Our Podcast We know that many of you who support the People's Assembly are time poor. Part of how austerity works is too keep us all too busy to fight for change - and too busy to keep track of how we will be effected by new and proposed laws. Our new podcast hopes to tackle both of these things. We want to make it easier for you to keep up with the most important stories, and easier for you to be part of the People's Assembly - even when your schedule is brutal and prevents you from physically being there. So once a fortnight, we are putting out a podcast of leading news and interviews in easy to manage 15 - 20 minute chunks.
