Austerity is not working. The deficit is growing and the economy flailing. The coalition government remains hopelessly committed to cuts on a scale not seen since the Great Depression of the 1930s.
The impact is grotesquely unequal. The rich are getting richer even as the living standards of the majority are cut, and the public services on which they rely are shut down or sold off.
Europe suffers. Greece shows us the future: the European Union, ECB and IMF austerity measures have shrunk the economy by more than 20% in just three years, with a quarter of Greeks now unemployed.
Austerity is an economic catastrophe. The government must be forced off its current course. Hundreds of thousands are set to join the TUC march on 20 October. To coincide with this, we are launching a People’s Petition for an Alternative to Austerity. The petition will be handed in to 10 Downing Street in June 2013, when we will be holding a People’s Assembly in London to bring together all those opposed to cuts and debate a strategy for opposing them.
Everyone who wants to save the welfare state and resist spending cuts should sign and support the petition and the People’s Assembly as a step towards creating a mass movement against austerity.
Please sign the petition at www.coalitionofresistance.org.uk

Do you want to quiz the author of Bad Pharma about the drugs industry? Here’s your chance
If you read the extract from Ben Goldacre’s brilliant new book Bad Pharma in Saturday’s Guardian, you’ll know it is an eye-opening account of how a drug comes to market – an alarming tale of missing data, badly designed trials and lax regulation – getting a prescription from your GP will never feel the same again.
In a couple of weeks we will be publishing an interview with Ben where all the questions have been posed by you, the readers. So if you have a question for the bestselling author of Bad Science, epidemiologist and self-described “nerd evangelist”, whether it be about the trouble with pharmaceutical trials, how to spot pseudo-science or whether it’s worth buying branded rather than generic ibuprofen, please send it to firstname.lastname@example.org or the usual postal address marked “Ben Goldacre question”.
