HUGE WEEK OF ACTION PLANNED AGAINST TORY PARTY MANCHESTER CONFERENCE
 

Star date: 31st July 2017

NO MORE AUSTERITY...SCRAP THE PAY CAP...TORIES OUT

The People's Assembly is currently planning a huge week of protest, demonstrations, cultural events, rallies, comedy, music and public meetings when the Conservative Party holds its conference in Manchester, beginning with a national demonstration on Sunday 1st October.

Full details here...


If the Tories thought the last time they came to Manchester was bad, this year the People's Assembly is aiming for it to be even bigger and badder, with a week of protest, demonstrations, cultural events, rallies, comedy, music and public meetings from 30th September to 4th October.

"We're planning on a week of politics, culture and protest like nothing we've ever done before, including a massive National Demonstration on Sunday 1st October, the day the Tory Party conference starts" states the Assembly "In 2015 we held 'Take Back Manchester' which brought in thousands from all over the country...this time we need to build on that, and make sure they know their politics of austerity, racism and war mongering are not welcome..."

Slogans this year include 'No More Austerity'...'Scrap The Pay Cap'...and 'For Decent Health, Homes, Jobs and Education'...and, like last time, there will be different themed protests throughout the Tories stay in the city.

It begins with the National Demonstration on Sunday 1st October with a march from Castlefield Arena at noon, which is expected to be Manchester's biggest ever protest.

"The election result has left Theresa May and the Conservative Party with a weak, unstable Government and represents a rejection of their vicious policies that only benefit those at the top" states the Assembly "The week of action will demonstrate the huge opposition to the politics of austerity, racism and war and will demand an alternative that works for everyone."

A full timetable will be announced over the coming weeks but already Tuesday October 3rd has been pencilled in for Stand Up To Racism demo at 5pm.

SALFORD QUAYS DEVELOPER TO AVOID 1MILLION PAYMENT WHILE NO AFFORDABLE HOUSING PROVIDED

FURNESS QUAY DEVELOPER PROVIDES NO AFFORDABLE HOUSING ON HUGE APARTMENT SCHEME

Salford's planning scandal is to go up another gear this week when an application by developer De Trafford for 421 apartments in blocks up to 27 storeys high on the site of Furness Quay is considered by councillors. Thanks to Salford City Council policies, the developer will be providing no affordable properties, while, through 'viability' assessments it is set to avoid over 1million in planning fees.

Meanwhile, the English Cities Fund (ECf) is continuing its secrecy in relation to new apartments and an office development around Chapel Street and New Bailey.
