Star date: 10th February 2018

GREATER MANCHESTER CND SCREENS ORIGINAL GODZILLA

Godzilla
Saturday 17th February 6:30pm
3 Minute Theatre, Afflecks Arcade, Manchester £5

To mark sixty years of CND, the original 1954 classic film, Godzilla, is being screened by Greater Manchester and District CND. What's the link?

Full details here...


It is a classic film but what is the link between Ishiro Honda's 1954 Godzilla and the 60th anniversary of CND?

"Godzilla is both the definitive monster movie and a bold metaphor for the perils and paranoia of the nuclear age" states Greater Manchester and District CND, which is hosting the screening on Saturday 17th February.

"Godzilla, the story of a radiation-breathing beast, was released at the height of fears around nuclear testing" they add "The US tested nukes in March 1954 on Bikini Atoll in the Marshall Islands and the full impacts of the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki in 1945 were still being understood. The film's powerful warnings remain as relevant as ever, as nuclear war in the Asia Pacific region is back on the US President's agenda."

The film will be introduced by Sean Morris, Secretary of Mayors for Peace UK, who recently visited Hiroshima and met with members of the Hibakusha - survivors of the atomic bombings of Japan.

Godzilla

SALFORD COUNCIL NURSERY CLOSURE GOVERNMENT BOMBSHELL

Star date: 20th February 2018

GOVERNMENT REVEALS THAT SALFORD COUNCIL NEVER ASKED FOR FUNDING FLEXIBILITY

Salford City Council recently announced that it was proposing to close all five of its nurseries. And yesterday Children's Lead Member, Lisa Stone, said that it was "a direct result of Government changes, which reduce the use of Dedicated Schools Grant."

However, this afternoon a spokesperson for the Department for Education told the Salford Star that "Any council that had concerns…could apply to the department for increased flexibility" in the Grant's use. They added that "The Department has not received a request from Salford for increased flexibility…" This is bound to increase pressure on the City Mayor to hold off the consultation on the closures.

SALFORD RED DEVILS AUDITOR ‘CASTS DOUBT’ ABOUT ‘COMPANY’S ABILITY TO CONTINUE’

Star date: 19th February 2018

SALFORD REDS ACCOUNTS SHOW ALMOST £9MILLION LIABILITIES

New accounts published for the Salford Red Devils show that the company made losses of over £700,000 last year and that it has net liabilities of almost £9million, including the £1million loan from Salford City Council.

Despite the directors insisting that restructures and changes within the club forecast a 'modest profit', its auditor states that the conditions "indicate the existence of a material uncertainty which may cast significant doubt about the company's ability to continue as a going concern".

HUNDREDS OF PEOPLE PACK SAVE OUR SALFORD NURSERIES MEETING

Star date: 17th February 2018 

MEETING VOTES TO TAKE ON SALFORD MAYOR IF NURSERY CLOSURE CONSULTATION GOES AHEAD

Despite pleas from Salford City Mayor, Paul Dennett, and various Labour councillors to work together to save the five Salford Council nurseries threatened with closure, a packed meeting of hundreds of people voted this afternoon to lobby and protest against the Council unless a consultation on the closures is stopped.

"They can't have a consultation to close the nurseries, and ask us to have a joint campaign" said UNISON's Ameen Hadi "The two things can't happen..."
