GREATER MANCHESTER STOP THE WAR PUBLIC MEETING
 

Star date: 28th October 2018

AN ANTI-WAR GOVERNMENT AND INDEPENDENT FOREIGN POLICY?

Greater Manchester Stop the War public meeting
Tuesday 6th November 7pm
Methodist Central Hall, Manchester

Can Britain ever avoid getting involved in wars? And can there ever be an anti-war government in this country? The Greater Manchester Stop The War Coalition will discuss such issues at a public meeting on 6th November with speeches and debate.

Full details here...


Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, Syria...it seems like Britain is always going to war or looking to go to war, as American's poodle in international affairs. Now the Greater Manchester Stop The War Coalition is holding a public meeting with speakers Jenny Clegg from Greater Manchester CND, Stephen Bell from National Stop the War Coalition and Norma Turner from the Palestine Solidarity Campaign to discuss such issues and more...

"With our imperial masters in Washington gearing up for armed conflict with Russia and China, we only have more war to look forward to and no guarantee that we will be insulated from its lethal effects" states the Greater Manchester Stop The War Coalition "Back on the home front, the creeping militarisation of society has seen the promotion of the bogus 'military covenant' and the spread of military propaganda in our schools. We need an anti-war government and an independent foreign policy more than ever."

Could such a thing ever be possible? Could there ever be a mass movement to demand such policies?

Greater Manchester Stop the War Public Meeting
Tuesday 6th November 7pm
Methodist Central Hall
Oldham Street, Manchester M1 1JQ

Oh dear! It seems that our GM Stop The War brethren have a legitimate cause to end war, until you read their terminology.

In answer to the questions at the end, yes there can. For the first time in living memory, a politician with stand-up anti-war credentials leads the Labour Party. We have a unique opportunity to elect a government committed to peace and prosperity, not war and austerity. This is worth fighting for. Its 100 years since the end of the First World War, a conflict between rival ruling classes that cost the lives of millions of working-class people. The present ruling class will not hesitate to sacrifice millions more of us in their insane pursuit of global domination. When enough people wake up to this fact, when they realise that their own lives are considered infinitely less important to the ruling class than the profits of banks, oil companies and arms manufacturers, then we will have a mass movement.

SALFORD LADY MARGARET MCHALE TURNS ONE HUNDRED AT THE BROUGHTONS

Star date: 20th January 2019

FROM HANKY PARK TO LITTLETON ROAD VIA LANCASTER BOMBERS AND THE 'MONKEY RUN'

Salford's Margaret McHale turned one hundred this week as her six children and relatives gathered for a huge party at The Broughtons Care Home. Born in Hanky Park, Margaret moved around central Salford, to Ellor Street, Warburton Street and finally to Littleton Road, as part of the slum clearances.

A proper Salford lass, Margaret worked on Lancaster Bombers during the war and as a machinist in Strangeways, and, as the family partied with residents and staff, there were a zillion anecdotes that will echo with loads of local families.

NEW OWNER CONSIDERS RESTORATION PLANS FOR LOWER BROUGHTON THEATRE

After Lower Broughton's 'at risk' Grade II listed Victoria Theatre was sold last year, there were fears that it would be pulled down for development but the Salford Victoria Theatre Trust has today announced that its new owner "has engaged with the group to seek out a way forward, even vowing to consider plans to restore it for its original purpose".

The Trust is now putting together a business plan and pitch to present to the owner at the end of the month, with a meeting planned with Salford City Council next month to discuss the theatre's future.

'IT'S THROWING RESIDENTS TO THE WOLVES OF RAMPANT DEVELOPMENT'

Before a full meeting of Salford Council this morning, residents campaigning against development on green spaces in the city held a demonstration outside the Civic Centre.

Representatives of campaigns including from Campbell Road, Duncan Matheson, Walkden and Buile Hill Park then went into the meeting to hear City Mayor, Paul Dennett, say that the Greater Manchester Spatial Framework was "protecting green belt and green spaces", after Carol Boyce of Saving Our Neighbourhood had accused the Council of "throwing residents to the wolves of rampant development".
