On 7 February OFGEM will announce another big rise in household energy bills. This would come into effect in April, at the same time that National Insurance goes up. RPI inflation is already 7.5%. MPs’ pay will be going up £2000 while nearly everyone else faces rapidly declining living standards.
Trade unions, Manchester TUC and Manchester People’s Assembly will be demonstrating a week on Saturday, 12th February in Manchester to demand action on the cost of living crisis.
Assembling in Piccadilly Gardens at 1pm for a rally at the Wellington statue, a march will leave at 1:30pm (route map) and pass the BEIS office in Salford and return to Piccadilly Gardens for one or two closing speeches.
Featuring guest speakers from the unions, the People’s Assembly and supporting community groups from Greater Manchester (with BSL interpretation).
