"Let's make sure this Government of millionaires know that as long as they're in power we'll continue to fight them - especially in our own backyard!"

Sunday 2nd October will see supporters of Salford Against The Cuts march from Fire Station Square - opposite the University on The Crescent - to join a huge TUC organised national demonstration taking place outside the Conservative Party conference in Manchester which kicks off at noon.

"The march and rally is to show opposition to the Coalition Government's disastrous policies of pay freezes, cuts and attacks on public services that are producing rising unemployment, cuts in living standards and stagnation" state the national organisers "The march will also show the support for The Alternative. We need jobs, growth and justice for a sustainable future and this event will send that message loud and clear."

The Salford feeder march is backed by Salford Against The Cuts, Salford TUC, Salford City Unison, Salford District Labour Party Local Government Committee, Unite/0538 and Greater Manchester TUC.

Salford Against The Cuts is urging everyone in the city to attend… "After a year of brutal cuts to jobs, education, services and communities we want to let them know that they are not welcome!" the group states "Please come along and join in. Bring your banners, your placards,your friends and your families. Let's make sure this Government of millionaires know that as long as they're in power we'll continue to fight them - especially in our own backyard!"

I want to go, I am worried that it will be taken over by people intent on violence, I am a working man,I earn more than the average wage. I have to work, I am working class, the city has become full of people who consider themselves middle class, but take work away from them and they can't live, therefore? With the rich socialist history we have, I feel I have to go and represent the fact that its not about "envy" etc.. Go with peace and humanity and remember the true martyrs of St. Peters Square.

Yes, its a bit like Peter Sutcliffe having a march against Fred West.......I use to feel inspired by the Labour party, how naive I was. Now when i see the backstabber Millipede and Balls and Cooper and Blears and Hain and Prentis and Crowe and every last one of them I want to be physically sick. Im sure there will be a lot of well meaning people on this march just a pity there is no alternative.

I agree with Red Dave partly in that marches alone won't change our society but they do serve a purpose in bringing people together in common cause and can remind people that there are many people out there who feel the same way as they do. Marches form just part of the tactics needed to turn the Tories back

I belive the rally is a great thing to do..pulling people together surporting each other is the way forward..The key is, not wasting huge amounts of public money on farcicul things such as consultancy fees, long hot air reports etc, by goverment and their depts,local councils etc, awarded to their friends. The Salford Star has been brave enough to report these things in this area, God knows what this has cost all over the UK (some one should do a rough estimate?) which must be a collossal amount that could have been put to better use,such as helping the needy eg the pensoiners, homeless, unempleyed etc. So instead of cuts to the PUBLIC, cut the WASTE of PUBLIC MONEY.

This will achieve what ? The torybastards don't care , this useless clouncil don't care . Protest all you want . Where has the fight-back been hiding until now ? The last chance we had to stop this corrupt alliance of traitors ended whwn the miners strike ended , thanks to TUC betrayal . So walking round a few streets crying will achieve NOTHING . However , if you really want to instigate real change to improve conditions for the wealth creators - the working class - you have my support .

FURNESS QUAY DEVELOPER PROVIDES NO AFFORDABLE HOUSING ON HUGE APARTMENT SCHEME

Salford's planning scandal is to go up another gear this week when an application by developer De Trafford for 421 apartments in blocks up to 27 storeys high on the site of Furness Quay is considered by councillors. Thanks to Salford City Council policies, the developer will be providing no affordable properties, while, through 'viability' assessments it is set to avoid over £1million in planning fees.

Meanwhile, the English Cities Fund (ECf) is continuing its secrecy in relation to new apartments and an office development around Chapel Street and New Bailey.
