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. It’s 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.

AFTER LONG BITTER FIGHT, THE GRANGE SHUTS

After years of campaigning and protests, The Grange home for children with severe complex needs finally shut yesterday, after the last resident was shunted out of the city.

"Salford Council should be ashamed of themselves for getting rid of such a valuable facility" says Rebecca Howarth, parent and Save The Grange Again campaigner "We have fought the Council for nearly two years in a bid to keep the care home open but unfortunately we have reached the end of the road."

SALFORD THEATRE FACADES SAVED BUT BUILDING TO BE ALMOST DEMOLISHED

Planning has now been submitted for the Grade II listed Crown Theatre in Eccles, which proposes to save the facades of the building and some stairs and walls, while demolishing the rest.

The application seeks to convert the site for 82 market apartments, with no affordable housing or Section 106 payments, with a loss to the city of over £200,000 - and with an estimated profit for the developer of over £2million.
