A 'MASS rally' against Austerity is being held in Haverfordwest next Saturday, March 2.

The People's Assembly Against Austerity's national tour, themed; 'Britain is Broken - We Can't Afford The Tories' will be visiting Haverfordwest for the West Wales leg of its tour.

Keynote Speakers will include Leanne Wood, former Plaid Cymru leader, and Mark Serwotka, president of the Trades Union Congress (TUC), who will speak at the 2pm rally on Castle Square.

There will also be speeches from Disabled People Against Cuts (DPAC), Women Against State Pension Inequality (WASPI), Anthony Slaughter, Wales Green Party Leader, Stand Up to Racism and more.

Pembrokeshire's leg of the tour will focus on the Universal Credit rollout and the poverty, homelessness and anxiety which the People's Assembly says it brings.

Jim Scott of Pembrokeshire People's Assembly, one of the main organisers of the rally, said: "Tory austerity has failed, it has always been an ideological policy has always been economically flawed.

"After nearly a decade of savage cuts to the very fabric of our society, working class people are suffering under the weight of austerity while the wealth of a privileged few has tripled. This has been a shameless transference of wealth from the public purse into the pockets of the super-rich, it's as simple as that. The Tories are picking the bones of our society and it is time for them to go."

As Part of the day's proceedings the group have also teamed up with Pembrokeshire Stand Up to Racism to put on a comedy and variety night, Stand up against racism and austerity, taking place in the Merlin Theatre at 6pm.
