Solidarity Against Austerity is a broad local network of community, student, labour, peace, environmental and anti-poverty activists. SAA organizes to challenge neoliberalism. This means we oppose deepening inequality and the erosion of public services and workers’ rights. These problems are the result of the politics of austerity and the prioritization of capital over human needs and the environment.
SAA has been organizing an annual protest on May 1st – International Workers’ Day, also known as ‘May Day’ – since 2012, to bring together a broad range of groups to challenge government “austerity,” environmental destruction, and other damaging consequences of corporate greed and predatory capitalism faced by millions of people each day.
