Today, homeless people were given meals at the Community Cafe for Manchester's Homeless held at Cross Street Chapel in Manchester City Centre.

Twenty volunteers from Salford, Manchester, Tameside and Liverpool helped to serve a choice of curry dishes and chicken and chips, while guests could also choose from a variety of clothes and toiletries.

"This is our regular community homeless cafe and we're sponsored this month by KFC, which is our permanent sponsor, and Zouk Tea Bar and Grill which has sponsored us for the second month" said Emma Mohareb from Party Protest Manchester which hosted the cafe alongside Salford Manchester Street Support.

"We've had people coming in here and then we also take food out onto the streets so probably up to one hundred people get fed" she added "Next month, we're going to be doing a Christmas dinner with chefs coming in from Styal, and we'll be approaching companies to sponsor Christmas events with tracksuits, coats and gloves."

Angela Barratt, from Salford Manchester Street Support, who was also out distributing Calvin Klein socks to the homeless yesterday (see here), implored more companies to get involved; "Everything donated goes directly to those on the streets" she explained.

Star date: 23rd November 2017  

DISABLED SALIX HOMES TENANT TOLD TO FIND NEW PROPERTY

Salix Homes tenant, Thomas West, has a worsening polio condition that meant the stairlift at his house in Weaste needed alterations but then kept breaking down, leaving him trapped upstairs for three months at one point.

Thomas has been advised by Salford Council that he needs a vertical lift fitted but Salix Homes state it is against their policy and have asked him to consider moving to 'more suitable accommodation'... "I don't want to move" he says, suspecting financial concerns are being put before his needs.

HIS BROTHER HAD ALREADY DIED OF SAME ILLNESS BUT 'HEARTLESS' SCHOOL FINED MUM FOR UNAUTHORISED ABSENCES

"He wasn't going out enjoying himself; he was actually at home trying to breathe..."

A judge at Manchester and Salford Magistrates' Court has thrown out a fine given by Buile Hill Visual Arts College to mum, Nicola Newns, for 'unauthorised absences' of her son, Jacob, despite him suffering from the same serious illness that tragically took the life of his younger brother, Ben, a few years ago.

Court papers showed that the school complained it took them two hours once to contact Nicola – when she was actually in an ambulance with Jacob on the way to A&E; and then couldn't contact her for four days...when she was sat by his bed in intensive care "Praying he gets better".

SALFORD SALIX HOMES DISABLED RESIDENT SUICIDE ATTEMPT AS CRIES FOR HELP IGNORED

Star date: 21st November 2017

'HORRIFIED' PARENTS TELL OF SALIX 'TURNING BACK' ON DISABLED SON 

"We can't understand how anyone can let a company do this to a vulnerable person forcing him to try and take his own life..."

The parents of a disabled man living in a Salix Homes flat off Blackfriars Road have written to the Salford City Mayor, Salford MP and local councillors after their son tried to commit suicide in a motorway car park.

The email states that Salix refused to help deal with anti-social behaviour and disability access issues, and "refused to accept that he is even disabled" despite him receiving full PIP... "The fact that his urgent cries for help have been ignored and his landlords have turned their back on him and instructed solicitors rather than provide the help that he urgently needs is horrifying".

"Our fundamental right to protest is being eroded by ever more oppressive policing" Keith Taylor, MEP

Community watchdog, Netpol, has today published a damning report on the policing of anti-fracking protests over the last year, which shows police using "increasingly confrontational and violent tactics against protesters", and calls for an 'urgent' and 'external review' of policy.

The report states Netpol has seen evidence of "police officers pushing people into hedges, knocking campaigners unconscious, violently dragging older people across the road and shoving others into speeding traffic..."
