UK: Tens of thousands join Corbyn at trade union march in London

Tens of thousands marched through London’s streets on Saturday to join a protest and rally organised by the Trade Union Congress (TUC). The events were organised with a set of demands for the government — to increase funding for the UK’s National Health Service and Public Services, end zero hours contracts, increase the minimum wage to £10 per hour (EUR 11.33), repeal the trade unions act and... Еще crack down on tax avoidance. There were no reported disturbances as trade union branches from across the country came together to protest against the governing Conservative Party’s economic and social policies. Jeremy Corbyn, the leader of the Labour Party, addressed the crowds as they rallied in Hyde Park following the march. He pledged to meet the protesters demands and vowed to bring about a new, more just era in British politics. He also said that there would be no ’sweetheart trade deal’ with US President Donald Trump were Labour in office.
