April 19, 2011 4:08 PM

The TaxPayers' Alliance is proud to announce that we will be attending the Rally Against Debt in London on May 14th 2011

Who: The TPA will join a range of other groups and individuals who are concerned about the national debt.

What: A static protest rally, no particular party, organisation or person is leading this protest

Where: Old Palace Yard, Westminster, London [map]

When: 11.00- 14.00, 14 May 2011

Why: See the new TPA factsheet Why Rally Against Debt?


This rally is for those who think that the national debt is a serious issue and that it would be immoral to leave it to future generations.  We need substantial spending cuts sooner rather than later to avoid seeing more and more of our taxes go on debt interest not paying for services.

No particular party, organisation or person is leading this protest and there is no common position beyond our basic concern about the huge public sector deficit.  Many of those attending will differ about what should be cut, how much and when.

Matthew Sinclair, Director of the TaxPayers' Alliance, said:

“While the Government have proposed spending cuts they still haven't shown that they can deliver the action necessary to deal with the frightening deficit that is being added to the national debt every year.  It would be immoral to keep racking up debt for future generations on top of liabilities like unfunded public sector pensions.  We all need to rally against the debt to ensure that we get a proper solution. Everyone would be worse off with a short term fix that is undermined by hitching Britain to bailouts of the failing eurozone.  The TaxPayers’ Alliance is excited to support a platform for those members of the silent majority who know cuts are right and necessary, and who want to make themselves heard."The TaxPayers' Alliance is proud to announce that we will be attending the Rally Against Debt in London on May 14th 2011
