Nation-wide rally demands an 'alternative to austerity and to policies that only benefit those at the top'
From across the United Kingdom, tens of thousands of people took to the streets of London Saturday to demand an end to brutal—and deadly—austerity measures.
The mass march, still ongoing at the time of publication, comes just over a month after the Conservative (Tory) Party's election wins.
The independent anti-austerity forum, the People's Assembly, declared ahead of the march that protesters aim to send a "clear message to the Tory government; we demand an alternative to austerity and to policies that only benefit those at the top."
"We'll be assembling the demonstration in the heart of the City of London right on the doorstep of the very people who created the crisis in the first place, and marching to the doorstep of Parliament," said the assembly.
