Austerity measures mandate a cut in the government spending. They usually tackle the welfare services given to the people. A lot of people do not agree with this because for one, as I have read in a random article, it eventually leads to less progress of the country, followed by a lot of unhappy people.

As I've read from another article, british austerity is actually working compared to greece austerity because people there learn to control their own spending. Therefore, it's successful and is at the same time lessening the overall debt of the country.

Aside from that, I have a query about your claim. You say you want to REVERSE austerity measures. By reverse, are you saying discontinue or stop, or is it that you want to reverse its step by step process? Meaning, do you want the government to instead of cutting welfare services, give more welfare services to compensate? If it is the latter, I would disagree even more because by then the government will be spending more to the extent of incurring more debts, counter-intuitive to its supposedly noble goal.
