Five years ago: 750,000 march against cuts

Five years ago, on 26 March 2011, the biggest trade union protest in British history took place. The TUC-organised demonstration was the first major show of opposition to the then Con-Dem government.

Thousands bought copies of the Socialist from hundreds of Socialist Party members who took part.

The throng of people felt enormously confident. It was followed later that year by a one-day public sector strike. Unfortunately trade union leaders sold out that strike.

The Tories are even more weak and divided today. The outpouring of support for the junior doctors shows coordinated action against austerity is possible. The Socialist Party is calling on the trade unions to lead next month's anti-austerity demo as the first step to building a general strike to stop the cuts.
