If you think all the big political parties are the same - you're right! The bosses have got three parties - isn't it about time we had one of our own?
Ahead of the G20 summit later this week, tens of thousands of trade unionists, young people, environmental activists and community campaigners marched through the streets of London on the TUC-backed Put People First demonstration.
Campaign for a New Workers' Party Trade Union officer Terry Pearce was interviewed by Reuters news agency and can been seen here, Terry is the second person interviewed.
Of the march, Terry stated:
"The G20 Demonstration on Saturday 28th March saw the first

We proudly carried our new banner through the streets of London on the 28th March and for us it represents another step forward in our fight to win a political voice for all those deserted by New Labour. As our banner proclaimed, we seek a 'Party for the millions, not the millionaires'."
