Dear Sister or Brother,
In its brief existence the Coalition of Resistance has made a real impact. You were one of those who attended our successful launch conference last November. On 9 July we are holding a second conference which will be action and resolution based with workshops as well as brief plenary sessions.
After the monster TUC demonstration on 26 March and the upcoming co-ordinated strike by four unions on 30 June we want to discuss bringing together the resistance to cuts at grassroots level with the national resistance of the trade unions and other campaigns.
We would like to invite you to attend and to ask your local campaign, trade union or other campaigning body to send delegates.
We are all engaged in the biggest fight of our lives as the Con Dems strive to demolish the welfare state, privatise the NHS and drive down living standards.
Register for the national conference: 9 July
