I find it interesting that they are asking for donations from people to protest about having too little money.
It's sadly the norm. To put on free transport for people all across the country to attend, do all the required paperwork, placards etc.. costs tens of thousands. The left are usually arranged so those that can afford to donate, pay for the transport of the poorest and most vulnerable (who are worst affected by the cuts) who otherwise would not be able to attend.

No trolling fella, just clarification after you spouted 'the rules' after you posted a promotional flyer for a demo. No worries, you just needed Michael Sheens words to make a point, I understand.
Off topic but I shared a stage a few times with him at West Glamorgan Youth Theatre, couple of years older than me but was always genuine and kind.

“For too long, we have been a passively tolerant society, saying to our citizens 'as long as you obey the law, we will leave you alone',” he said.
Just let that comment sink in...
These are frankly terrifying comments from Cameron.
As well as bringing the "Snoopers Charter" and other draconian and invasive measures into force, Cameron now wants to invade, snoop and interfere into our personal lives and have free reign over what we say, write and whatever else.
Of course this is being proposed under the guise of "Radicalism" and the whole "if you've got nothing to hide" nonsense will be trotted out but where does this stop? Anti-Government speech perhaps? Protests?
I feared a Tory Government because of what they will do to the poorest and most vulnerable... but there are lot of things that they will do to further erode our privacy and freedoms... including Free Speech.
