The themes are:· Jobs and fair pay (blue)
· Tax justice (green)
· Industrial growth (black)
· NHS, public services & social security (red)
· Young people and the future (yellow)Speakers will be looking at the damage done by austerity, highlighting the lost opportunities as well as articulating some of the many ‘better ways’ and alternatives to current government policies.
