Tens of thousands of people are today expected to take part in the End Austerity Now march in London.
The People's Assembly, which is organising the protests against government cuts, said the rally would be the start of a campaign of "strikes, direct action and civil disobedience" across the UK.
We will not rest until austerity is history, our services are back in public hands and the needs of the majority are put first.
Sam Fairbairn of the People's Assembly
Last year, the Office for Budget responsibility revealed that only 40 per cent of the cuts planned by George Osborne had been made under the coalition - effectively meaning the remaining 60 per cent would be made in this parliament by 2020.
In other words, the worst is yet to come.
With that in mind, here's what has already been cut by the last government:
By 2011 more than 1,000 jobs had been cut across England, Scotland and Wales according to the Fire Brigades Union. By 2014, 10 firestations in London alone were forced to close, causing 552 jobs to be lost, as part of £45m worth of savings needed to be made across the capital’s service by 2016.
