The TUC are calling a huge march for Sat March 26,
March for the Alternative
But what is the alternative?
We doubt the TUC bureaucrats have much idea, but the people who have
been in direct action on the streets at Millbank, in Vodaphone and
Topshop, in uni and college occupations, against tuition fee rises and
the EMA cuts, and local government cuts at Town Halls across the
country – they have the right idea!
We need to seize the spaces where people can gather into direct
democracy decision-making bodies – People’s Assemblies. We need to
challenge the legitimacy of this feeble and hated Con-Dem government
by establishing alternative sovereignty in as many key locations as
We think by March 26, with the galvanic student movement, and the
looming Eurozone crisis, a strong majority of rank-and-file trade
unionists will NOT be satisfied by a march from A to B, or footprints
going round in circles, as the TUC march logo has it!
We propose a map of direct action targets for March 26 (media,
education, local and national govt buildings, bank branches, courts,
police stations, libraries) to be seized and occupied as seats of the
sovereign populace, including any places, space or agencies that
should be held accountable to their local communities. We, the people,
should be making the decisions about how to share our commonwealth.
This is a working group for http://www.peoplesassemblies.org to which
