We’ve already seen what can be achieved when we support each other during this crisis. Now we need to channel that community spirit into creating an unstoppable movement to rebuild our society for the better, to urge the government to provide a new deal that puts people, not profits, first.
That new deal is possible, but to make it a reality, we all need to act. If the government hears our demands from every corner of the country, they won’t be able to ignore us. So wherever you are in the country, we need you to start campaigning to build back better.
Whether you’re an individual or a group that normally campaigns on environmental justice, social justice or workers rights, the Build Back Better campaign is relevant to you.
MPs have just returned to parliament after their Summer recess and we are calling on them to Build Back Better.
They could reboot business as usual and further devastating austerity. Or they could invest in jobs, vital public services and a Green New Deal. Let’s make sure it’s the latter.
Let’s make sure our elected politicians hear our cry that normal wasn’t working during our week of action 5-11th October.
Put pressure on your MP to support Building Back Better by showing them the breadth and strength of support behind the campaign in the community.
We know that only 6% of the British public want us to return to the way the economy was before the pandemic. But in order to make our politicians act, we need to show them the breadth and strength of support behind the campaign in our communities.
