This 29 July 2019 video by The People’s Assembly in Britain says about itself:
Protest The Tory Party Conference [Sunday 29th September – Wednesday 2nd October] 2019
Less than 150,000 people from one political party got to decide our Prime Minister. Boris Johnson does not represent the people in this country and offers nothing for the millions who have suffered for too long with unnecessary and cruel austerity policies.
We want to make sure that when the Conservative Party come together for their national conference in Manchester later this year that the voices of those millions cannot be ignored by unelected Boris Johnson and the rest of the nasty party.
We are going to organise an enormous demonstration which will demand an end to austerity and an immediate General Election so the millions and not just the millionaires can have their say. But we want to go further than that too:
What we will do:
£1,000 – will go towards the costs of mobilising for the national demonstration
£5,000 – will allow us to take out advertisements for the national demonstration in newspapers and on social media platforms
£10,000 – will be enough to also erect a huge ‘Tories Out!’ marquee in the centre Manchester’s Picadilly Gardens for meetings, art exhibitions and cultural events for 5 days
£15,000 – will be enough to also have a large ‘Tories Out!’ billboard in Manchester City Centre
The effects of austerity on Britain have been devastating: since 2012, 600,000 children have fallen into poverty, and a record 1.6 million emergency food parcels were given out across the UK in the year to March 2019, up 73% in five years. Philip Alston, the United Nations special rapporteur for extreme poverty and human rights, in his recent report said that austerity was, “entrenching high levels of poverty and inflicting unnecessary misery”, despite Britain being, “one of the richest countries in the world”. With 14 million people living in poverty.

General elections are wanted. It should be a rule to have them within 6 months after becoming prime minister this way. But I’m not British so who am I to tell what to do?
The Conservatives are a minority in Parliament. They have a 1-seat majority if you count Northern Irish DUP homophobes with links to terrorism. It seems Boris Johnson is too much of a coward to call a general election.
