Tony Benn on Video at Doncaster Coalition of Resistance launch meeting

This video lasts 9.45 minutes and shows how old age makes people think long-term. At 85, Tony Benn refers to the time of his great grandfather 200 years ago.

Since then, unionists have established the right to organise, chartists the right to vote for workers and suffragettes for women.

And he quoted a colleague “If you can have full employment killing Germans, why can’t we have full employment to build hospitals?”

What is currently happening with the spending cuts is not only a brutal law of class legislation but the attempt to wipe out 200 years of democratic history.

In the Guardian, Tony Benn calls for revolt against coalition budget cuts on August 4 and August 9

The Coalition of Resistance site announces events country-wide.
