Better Way Demo – York

Unite and Unite Community members joined thousands of fellow trade union members, students and community campaigners in protesting at the Lib Dems spring conference in York.

The general mood was one of determination to make the Lib Dems know exactly what was thought of their collaboration in the Tory led Austerity government, and the many broken promises from their election manifesto.

A range of speakers spoke out about the many different problems and suffering caused by continued austerity, and called for an alternative which included jobs which paid a living wage, a publicly owned NHS and a return to a social security safety net which allowed for basic human dignity.

Below are a few of the images from the day.
