The newly formed group, will be part of a UK wide movement, aiming to bring together those opposed to government cuts under a single united movement.

A spokesperson for the Flintshire group said:

“Many Deeside residents have been seriously affected by the government’s austerity programme. Jobs are under threat, wages are frozen, pensions are under attack and many are being forced to pay the new bedroom tax”

“We believe that the austerity programme is unjust and unnecessary, rewarding those that caused the financial crisis and punishing those that did not. We believe that appropriate taxation on banks and major corporations would be a more effective and just way of raising funds, there is also the vast wealth of corporations and the trillions owned by the super rich in tax havens which could be tapped”


Nationally The People`s Assembly, which is supported by a host of trade unions, has drawn up an action plan which is posted here on their website, they are planning a mass demonstration in Manchester to coincide with the Conservative party election being held in the city on 29th September.

Locally the first meeting of the Flintshire Peoples Assembly has been scheduled for 10th September, details of which are on their Facebook page here
