The anti-cuts protests group UK Uncut will hold a street party and protests in Manchester this Saturday it announced today.
The group will directly target high profile individuals they see as responsible for the government's cuts, dubbed the ‘architects of austerity’.
The protestors promise that this Saturday's protests will take a radical new direction and will not be quickly forgotten or easily ignored by the government, tax avoiders or City bankers.
UK Uncut said that the street parties are designed to resist the government's cuts and celebrate the much-needed alternatives to austerity.
Hannah Waters, UK Uncut supporter, said: "For too long the bankers, tax dodgers and the government have hidden behind the myth that the cuts are not a choice – that they were caused by too much public spending.”
She added: “For too long these architects of austerity have got off scot free from taking any responsibility for political decisions that are devastating people's lives. We won't let them get away any longer."
They plan to block roads and hold street parties that instead of celebrating the Jubilee, will celebrate public services and a future decided by the people, not big business and a cabinet of millionaires.
The theme for the party in Manchester is 'communities against corporate tax dodging' and is expected to target the shops of high profile 'tax dodger' Sir Philip Green, whose empire includes Topshop, Burton and Dorothy Perkins, amongst others.
They will also be holding a 1940s style street party on Market Street this Saturday.
