Budget 2015: 100s Of People Launching Protest Outside Parliament

| Resist!

Campaigners will try to pitch tents in Parliament Square tomorrow as they launch an Occupy-style protest.

Hundreds of young activists are expected to arrive in Westminster, demonstrating against billions of pounds of cuts announced by Chancellor George Osborne .

Youth Fight for Jobs spokesman Ian Pattison said: “Osborne’s Budget represents a declaration of war on young people.

“The abolition of student maintenance grants, removal of housing benefit for 18 to 21-year-olds and exclusion of under-25s from the so-called ‘living wage’ all add up to a bleak picture for our generation.

“This grim outlook of increasing hardship stands in stark contrast with Osborne’s treatment of the rich.

“The cut to corporation tax will offer a boost to the profits of the multinational companies who make millions through super-exploitation of young workers.”
