More than a 100 000 union workers, students and supporters converged on London on Saturday, October 20, to have their voices heard in a massive protest for a "Future that Works" against the Cameron government's austerity cuts. A call for a nationwide general strike from Britain's trade union leaders is imminent. Many of those protesting on Saturday carried banners that read, "24 Hour General Strike Now". Protestors believe that the government's strategy of austerity is guided by ideology rather than necessity.
