Psychologists Against Austerity

Information

Psychologists Against Austerity

As practitioners working with some of the most vulnerable members of society we are well placed to comment on the impacts of recent economic policies of austerity. From unequivocal research evidence and from our personal experience as psychologists, it is clear that the psychosocial impacts of our current austerity regime are devastating to a growing number of people. It is for this reason that we believe that we need to speak out on political practices whose impacts are to dehumanise, exclude and damage both vulnerable people and those made vulnerable by austerity.

Wea re now meeting regualrly on the 2nd Tuesday and last Weds of every month at the Royal Festival Hall (see above) until after 7th May.

Please come along if you can or get in touch if you want to find out how you can become a regional leader in your area or if you can send copies of the briefing paper out or want to go on local or national media.

Most importantly write about these issues to your MP candidates and go to your local hustings!

Relaunch meeting event for London Psychologists Against Austerity (PAA).

Weds 23rd Sept, 6.30pm, UCL- Drayton B06 (in Drayton House), 30 Gordon Street, WC1H 0AX, Here is a map of UCL: http://crf.casa.ucl.ac.uk/screenRoute.aspx?s=68&d=71&w=False

In exciting times as we find out one of PAA's biggest supporters is now the Shadow Chancellor and the new Shadow Minister for Mental Health attended our launch event at the House of Lords, we are ready to re-launch! We remain non-party political of course.

Come and join us, all welcome! Whatever time or efforts you can spare the campaign - you're very welcome.
