HUNDREDS of people will march through the city as part of a “day of action” in support of striking postal and rail workers.
Protesters will march from Brighton station at 11am as part of the ‘Enough is enough’ campaign, which calls for lower energy bills, an end to food poverty, a real wage increase and tax increases for the wealthy.
This is followed by a rally at The Level.
The campaign has attracted support from over 700,000 people, with 50 protests scheduled to take place across the country tomorrow.
A staffer at the Communication Workers’ Union (CWU) in Brighton said: “I have members who are on the brink of homelessness using food banks and we are all struggling with the cost of living crisis.
“We will not accept that our wages and conditions will be reduced while bosses hand themselves huge payouts.”
Activists from Acorn Local Union will also join the demonstration in Brighton tomorrow.
A spokeswoman for the union said: “People in this city have already struggled with some of the worst housing in the country and with soaring food and energy prices we are at a breaking point.
“We want to send a message not only to our government, but also to the Greens in our local council that the working class in this city is organizing and we will not accept it anymore.”
