For a future that works for us all we need the Peoples Charter reforms
The TUC demo on the 20th October is called under the slogan, For a Future that Works. We have all seen that the way our society is being run today does not work. It has resulted in economic instability and virtual collapse, a gulf between the richest 1% and the rest of us, and if we don’t stop it a future were increasingly basic needs of ordinary people will not be met. A Future that Works means getting back to education, health and social services to benefit all our society, not bleeding public resources for private profits. It means a fairer tax system, where the rich and corporations have to pay their share. It means getting a grip on the banks and financial institutions, bringing back stability and putting them to work for the benefit of all of us, not the top 1%. It means investing in young peoples future, rather than wasting blood and money on wars and the next generation of nuclear weapons. We need the Peoples Charter reforms to get a future that works for the majority.
The Peoples Charter Scotland is supported by the trade union movement in Scotland and leading politicians. Supporters are currently petitioning the Scottish Parliament to take forward the 6 reforms in the Peoples Charter.
