Enough is Enough! Join the cost of living protest tomorrow at 11am Marischal College

Aberdeen Trades Union Council is urging all delegates, affiliates, families and friends to join the cost of living protest organised by ATUC and Peoples' Assembly on Saturday 1st October at 11am at Marischal College, Aberdeen, to demand action on the Cost of Living Crisis.

People in all parts of Aberdeen are suffering from the cost-of-living crisis - fuel poverty, food poverty, poverty pay. Families live in fear of putting heating on, and worry how much prices will have risen when they next have to go to the shops. 
Food banks have become a normal part of life. Many workers pay is falling far below rising prices. But at the same time, some major companies and individuals are seeing their wealth and profits spiral upwards.
On 1 October the energy price cap will increase again, and Aberdeen TUC, with Grampian Peoples Assembly and other organisations, is calling on people and organisations across Aberdeen to gather at 11am to 12 noon in Marischal Square. Together, we need to support each other. Together, we need to demand that politicians take action to protect people at this critical time.
There will be a few speakers from community organisations and trade unions, a little music, but also an open mic where you are invited to contribute your experiences and views.
Please come, and invite your friends, family, and members of your organisation to come too.
If you want to contact the organisers, you can email Please circulate this appeal onwards.
