Films and Conversations With Ken Loach
Thursday 23rd November 2pm-midnight
Moston Miners' Community Arts Centre 20/10

This Thursday, there's a chance to watch Ken Loach films, I, Daniel Blake and Spirit of '45, together with the man himself, plus there's entertainment from Ricky Tomlinson, JB Barrington, Smug Roberts and more in a special fundraiser for the Salford Unemployed and Community Resource Centre.

Full details here...


How ace is this? To be able to watch Ken Loach films, I, Daniel Blake and Spirit of '45 with the director himself, followed by a Q and A with the legend who specialises in social justice.

It's part of an ten hour fundraising spectacular for the Salford Unemployed and Community Resource Centre which, as well as the films and conversation with Ken Loach, also includes contributions from Ricky Tomlinson, Atilla The Stockbroker, Little Hulton's ace poet, JB Barrington, local band, Red Light Effect and singer Liam Caly.

Smug Roberts will host an auction of autographed Ken Loach films on DVD and other items, including stuff signed by actor Michael Sheen, famed for a zillion top roles on stage, screen and tv. There will also be a continuous tombola and the event is supported by a host of MPs and trade unions, including Salford and Eccles MP, Rebecca Long-Bailey.

The income at Salford Unemployed and Community Resource Centre (SUCRC) has been slashed by fifty per cent this year, even though it supports and advises people with benefit and housing issues...

"The idea came about when all the staff and volunteers went to see Ken's latest film I, Daniel Blake; he was dealing with a subject and painting a picture of real life in the UK" says Alec McFadden, SUCRC Manager "In 2017, every day our centre has to deal with issues like poverty, benefit sanctions, suicide, prostitution to feed and clothe children, zero hour contracts and debt. In the last 12 months, three of our clients have had amputations, all related to poverty, austerity, sanctions or homelessness.

"A hundred years ago, Engels wrote about the 'conditions of the working class' in Salford and Manchester; in the 1920s and 1930s Eddie Frow led the unemployed workers against poverty" he adds "That spirit still exists, and determination is alive and kicking in the Salford UCRC. It's good that so many friends are determined to ensure the Centre continues..."

Fab event! Really looking forward to it! I think it's a great event that should be supported no matter where it's held - it might spread the word a bit further too.

Great idea and I hope well supported but why at the Miners in Moston when it's the Salford unemployed. There are many venues in Salford which would be appropriate and would be more relevant. Perhaps have the event for Greater Manchester unemployed which would more inclusive.

COUNCIL UPS PRICE OF BUILE HILL MANSION PROJECT TO OVER 20MILLION AS PLANS MET WITH SCORN FROM COMMUNITY

Last night, a packed stormy meeting of the Claremont and Weaste Community Committee left Salford City Council in no doubt that any plans to build houses in Buile Hill Park as part of a deal to restore the Grade 2 listed Mansion will be met with fierce opposition.

Salford Council's Assistant Director of the Environment revealed to the meeting that Salford Red Devils Foundation, one of the driving partners of the project, hadn't even signed the controversial Memorandum of Understanding yet and that the 1.6million cost of restoring the Mansion would have to be met with 1million a year to sustain it, giving a figure of over 20million.

FORGET ABOUT JOBS, HOMELESSNESS AND AFFORDABLE HOUSING ROLLERBLADERS IS WHERE CITIES' REGENERATION IS AIMED!

'Jobs priority "just doesn't echo in the room any more"...'

Never mind jobs, homelessness and affordable housing, all Manchester and Salford regeneration is, apparently, aimed at attracting rollerbladers, Eddie Smith, Strategic Director at Manchester City Council, told a Built Environment Network conference last week; and that the jobs priority "just doesn't echo in the room any more".
