Tens of thousands of people marched in London, Glasgow and elsewhere in the first major protest against the government’s plans for five more years of austerity. Estimates of the size of the rally in central London varied between 70,000 and more than 150,000. Several thousand more gathered in Glasgow’s George Square and smaller demonstrations were reported in other cities, including Liverpool and Bristol. Protesters denounced public sector cuts, the treatment of the disabled and the vulnerable through welfare cuts, and the NHS-privatisation.
