MANCHESTER JUSTICE FOR GRENFELL DEMO AGAINST THERESA MAY AND COALITION OF CHAOS
 

Star date: 16th June 2017

DEMO CALLED IN SOLIDARITY WITH GRENFELL TOWER RESIDENTS AND AGAINST COALITION OF CHAOS

Tomorrow, Saturday, 17th June, a demonstration has been called in solidarity with the residents of Grenfell Tower and against Theresa May's Coalition of Chaos. It's set to take place at 2pm in St Peter's Square in Manchester.

A demonstration called against Theresa May's so-called 'Coalition of Chaos' is set to take place tomorrow, Saturday 17th June at 2pm in St Peter's Square, near Central Library in Manchester.

It was originally organised by Manchester People's Assembly and Stand up to Racism to coincide with a protest called in London by Owen Jones to campaign against the Tory/DUP alliance. But now has the added poignancy and anger of the Grenfell Tower tragedy...

"We believe at least 150 people have died in the fire at Grenfell Tower; they deserve justice and we support their for demand answers" states North West Unite the Resistance, which is encouraging its supporters to attend "David Lammy MP stated he believed it is 'corporate manslaughter'. We agree with him. We must stop putting profit before people's lives."

The protesters will be asking 'How many have died?', urging the need for a public inquest and calling for those made homeless by the fire to be re-housed in the area.

Meanwhile, the original reason for the demonstration still stands... "The Tories launched a General Election to destroy Labour. They waged a campaign of fear against a campaign of hope. And they failed" state the organisers

"Now a disgraced Theresa May is trying to cling on to power with an alliance with the Democratic Unionist Party, the most extreme party in Parliament" organisers add "They are anti-gay. They are anti-choice. They are climate change deniers. And they have a history of links to and sympathies for Northern Irish loyalist terrorism - after smearing Labour and Jeremy Corbyn over terrorism.

"The Tories are themselves riddled with homophobes, opponents of women's rights to choose, and climate change deniers" they insist "Now they'll be strengthened with an alliance with the right-wing extremists of the DUP. This Coalition of Chaos and Hatred is a threat to all of us."

May Must Go!
No to the Coalition of Chaos!
Justice for Grenfell!

Saturday 17th June 2pm

I feel so sad with ways happened with the tower block in London , justice is 100% needed for all , I also think the buyer and manufacturer of the cheap cladding , should be made by law to replace all cheap , cladding , with the more expensive cladding , the less flammable cladding , ways happened , is appealing , the manufacture , probably knew the cladding , was being put up besides high rise flats , and the buyer must of known , cheaper cladding was , is more flammable than the more expensive cladding , the manufacturer I feel responsible for telling his customers , as to how flammamable the cladding , manufacturer , buyer , safety check people should all go to jail

IMAGE OBSESSION AND CLADDING UNVEILED

Recently, Salford City Council has been obsessed by the image of the city, desperately trying to move away from the 'Dirty Old Town', to something like Milton Keynes on the Irwell.

Has this obsession with image and wrapping tower blocks in unsafe materials led, in line with other cities, to the current cladding catastrophe? Here the Salford Star documents what's been going on behind the fancy facades...
