This Thursday evening, Salford and Manchester TUCs have called a vigil near McDonald's, off the Crescent, for the victims of the Grenfell Tower fire tragedy on its first anniversary. Speakers will include Salford and Eccles MP Rebecca Long-Bailey.

Full details here...


Exactly a year after the Grenfell Tower fire tragedy, the TUCs of Salford and Manchester have called a joint vigil on land near McDonald's on the junction of Cross Lane and the Crescent.

"This vigil has been called to commemorate the one year anniversary of the fire that tragically killed over eighty people and destroyed the homes and memories of the residents of the Grenfell Tower block in West London" states the Salford TUC "Salford Trade Union Council will be gathering to pay our respects to the victims and their families in a show of solidarity."

Speakers will include Salford and Eccles MP, Rebecca Long-Bailey and the Bishop of Manchester, David Walker.

The site of the vigil is also opposite Spruce Court and Thorn Court, and near the seven other Pendleton Together blocks owned by Salford City Council that still have the dangerous cladding on most of the exteriors. Indeed, residents of the blocks believe it will be around two years before all of the cladding is removed and replaced.

The vigil is a timely reminder to the authorities to move more quickly in removing the materials which were similar to those in place on the Grenfell Tower.

TRUMP GO HOME BUS HITS SALFORD

'MANIAC' TRUMP NOT WELCOME HERE

A red open top double decker bus toured Salford this morning covered in slogans reading 'Trump Go Home'. It stopped off at Salford Precinct, Salford Royal Hospital, Langworthy Road and the Civic Centre before heading off to Manchester.

The bus was sponsored by Swinton-based Mary Monson Solicitors, and Mary Monson told the Salford Star that "the idea that he'll come and be feted like a respectable person is appalling". Meanwhile Paul Kelly, President of Salford TUC, called Donald Trump an "ultra-capitalist maniac".
