Thousands of people from across the UK are expected to gather in central London on Saturday in protest against the government’s austerity measures.
They will also be calling for the resignation of Prime Minister David Cameron over recent revelations of offshore investment funds linked to his family.

This will not be the first call for Cameron to step down following the Panama Papers leak; there was a protest in London last week where demonstrators chanted “Resign! Resign!” outside 10 Downing Street.
The demonstration through the center of the capital will end on Trafalgar Square around 6pm.
The March for Health, Homes, Jobs and Education has been organized by the People’s Assembly Against Austerity alongside several trade unions, including Unite. Organizers are demanding that David Cameron’s “vicious government” end its policy of austerity.
“They’ve attacked junior doctors and student nurses while privatizing the NHS. They plan to force all schools to become academies and teachers are now balloting to strike over pay and conditions. They’ve done nothing to address the growing housing crisis.”
Describing the situation as “unrecoverable” for the Conservative government if the public mobilizes against ongoing austerity measures, organizers urged as many people as possible to attend. More than five thousand people have publicly registered their intention to protest.

The government is being accused of prioritizing “only the richest in society, big business and the corporations” and the protest will concentrate on four main areas – health, homes, jobs and education
