Next Saturday, 24th June, there is to be a Peace Party in Piccadilly Gardens in Manchester, which has been organised to 'set the record straight' and 'show what Manchester is about', after last week's violent so-called 'March Against Hate'.

The Party will feature music, stalls, food, face painting and speakers under the banner of 'uniting against hate and terror in all its many forms, and fighting it with acceptance, cooperation and education'...

"Last Sunday Manchester saw its biggest far right demonstration since 2009" state the organisers "This march was extremely well disguised as a march against hate when in fact it was a demonstration of racist football hooligans from across the country shouting violent, racist obscenities, throwing glass bottles into crowds of people opposing them and attempting to break the lines of over stretched police in order to unleash their violence on innocent residents of Manchester.

"Understandably many people were too afraid to enter Piccadilly Gardens last Sunday" they add "This is not acceptable, the vast majority of Mancunians are tolerant, rational and peaceful and we cannot allow the atrocity of the Manchester bombing to divide our beautifully multicultural city.

"So, this is a call out for Manchester to set the record straight" they explain "We will not be defined by a small minority of violent, racist people, that is not what Manchester is about. We don't give in to fear or hatred, we stand together, united against those that seek to divide us and it is that unity that makes Manchester the strong, diverse and beautiful city that it is.

"If you have a message of peace or love or unity, if you have ideas of working together, of strengthening ties between communities or if you just want to experience Piccadilly Gardens at it's beautiful diverse best then come on down on Saturday 24th June" they add "And let's set the record straight."



Peace Party
Saturday 24th June 11am-late
Piccadilly Gardens, Manchester

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...
