Doncaster residents will be among tens of thousands of people protesting in London on Saturday against Government cuts.

The National People’s Assembly is organising a march and rally in the capital and they say they expect it to draw many thousands of people from disgruntled communities across the country.

The march will start at BBC headquarters in Central London and continue to Parliament Square.

A spokesman for the group said: “Doncaster community groups, trades unions, political party members and individuals will march with other community residents calling for an end to austerity. They will call for alternative measures, including investment in local jobs and public services, health and education and resisting the unnecessary destruction of our communities.”

They added: “The hierarchy in the banking sector, who have recently received more bonuses should pay for the economic crisis, not the people of Doncaster.”

A coach will be leaving Doncaster at 8am on Saturday from outside Ward Brothers furniture store in Waterdale. The cost is £20 for waged people and £10 for the unwaged.
