Yesterday there was a massive protest in London. 250,000 people marched against austerity. Here is a short film I made from the footage and pictures I got.
Austerity has inflicted poverty, hardship and even in some cases, death to the British people. More and more people are starting to wake up to the cold hard reality of inequality, because right now, it's on their own doorsteps. Since the financial collapse of 2008 there has been a steady attack on the poor and vulnerable of society, perpetrated by corrupt politicians, at the behest of the international banking elite.
Now more people are starting to organise, lets hope that it snowballs into something real and tangible, of a positive nature and in the direction of true change. I feel like we are on the verge of something radical.
Please feel free to share the video if you find it inspiring, also don't forget to flag the thread so others can see it.
The day after a quarter of a million people marched in London against austerity, the government has confirmed it will cut £12 billion in welfare.
The amount of time wasted and money spent could have been used to do something actually productive like supporting/setting up food shelters or helping the poor and homeless.
