The People's Charter sets out a plan of action to get us out of the mess we are in. Its aspirations are eminently achievable and are ones that people with progressive views from all backgrounds can coalesce around. At this time when the rich and powerful are attacking the fabric of our society we need platforms that unite those in opposition to the neo liberal agenda, the People's Charter provides this.
