A range of unions and campaign groups were represented, calling for an end to austerity measures, privatisation, job losses and pay freezes. Frances O’Grady, TUC General Secretary addressed the crowds:

‘How dare David Cameron tell us that there isn’t enough money, when he’s just given billions away in tax cuts to the rich. Billions are left uncollected through tax avoidance, and tax payers are paying out £28bn every year because bosses are too tight to pay their workers a living wage. How dare he? If a 10% increase is good enough for them, then a 10% increase is good enough for us’.
