The Tories are taking an axe to working class Britain. Every day sees jobs decimated, services slashed and thousands of lives wrecked.

Despite shedding a few crocodile tears, the Tory toffs are loving every minute of it.

Unemployment figures last week revealed a rise of 80,000 to over 2.5 million. Of those, almost a million are young ­people ­without work.

But the government is not having it all its own way.

Unions representing around three ­million public sector workers last week announced plans for a mass strike.

On 30 November, the ­strikers will show the power they have to shut down Britain—and a new force will be born on the picket lines.

The autumn of anger has the potential to derail the government’s pension plans­­, and more. If the strikes grow, they could drive the hated coalition from office.

A taste of the workers’ rage will be felt on the demonstration at next month’s Tory party conference.

People from all over Britain will descend on the lavish gathering, sending the posh boys scuttling into their conference centre bunker.

Our march will give a boost to everyone who is preparing to strike—and to the millions more who want to join them.

Make sure you’re there.
