Today, hundreds of people gathered at the old Fire Station on The Crescent to join thousands of fellow protestors in Manchester. The first stop on the Salford march was Bexley Square, where flowers were laid to commemorate the 80th anniversary of the famous Bexley Square riots.

Here, on October 1st 1931, unemployed people of Salford protested outside the old Town Hall against cuts to both unemployment benefits and pay cuts for public sector workers. Salford Council was implementing cuts imposed by a coalition government.

The demonstrators, who included Ewan MacColl and Eddie Frow, were met by savage attacks from police batons and arrests, and, later, imprisonments.

From Bexley Square it was straight to Manchester, to a massive march around the city centre and a rally afterwards. Spotted amongst the crowds were three Salford Labour councillors – Steve Coen, Jim King and John Warmisham, plus Salford-based actress Maxine Peake.

Also spotted on every corner were police video vans, plus horses, plus on the roof overlooking the Tory party conference, a police sniper. The police overkill* couldn't dampen the party atmosphere as 40,000 marchers made it absolutely clear that the Tories and their cuts and their millionaire friends are not welcome in Manchester – or Salford for that matter!

* and not one single arrest...

"BP wrote at 9:37:59 AM on Wednesday, October 05, 2011 It is no longer relevant who is to blame for the debt this country is in - the fact is that it needs dealing with and some people have trouble dealing with this reality. There was no money when the last government were in charge and there certianly is not now. The cuts are necessary unfortunately and the sooner people relaise this the better. As for public sector workers protesting about pension cuts - you're lucky to have a pension the government contribute towards and you're lucky you have a job to go back to." i cant stand the Tories because they are a bunch of toffee nosed ________ (ill let people fill in the blank, however i agree that the crisis needs to be sorted. But they ain't sorting it either. The whole of politics are too busy blaming one person to the next. This country and its people have had enough of the excuses and constant "he did this" and "they caused that". The banks messed up and the last government screwed us over WE KNOW!! The problem is we are not all in this together. Politicians may take a pay cut or freeze but will only claim more to compensate...banks have clearly gone back to the way they were with outrageous bonuses and i have to survive somehow off £67.50 per week not because i am lazy or don't look for work (i have applied for 200+ jobs in less then 3 months), but because there is not this demand for workers as the government aim to make out. I totally agree with the comment made by BP, but it is time to make Britain British again and proud to be it. STOP THE EXCUSES AND THE PR STUNTS, SUCH AS TODAY'S CONFERENCE SPEECH AND GET THIS COUNTRY SORTED.

Magnificent effort . They now need to build on this . When is the next demo ? This time the torybastards kept their rabid plod on a tight leash . Let us all hope the vicious plod thugs are similarly controlled next time , unlike during the Great Miners Strike when they were ordered to brutally assault innocent strikers , and enjoyed doing so .

SALFORD COUNCILLORS COULD BE CUT IN BOUNDARY COMMISSION REVIEW

Star date: 20th April 2018

NUMBER OF COUNCILLORS COULD BE CULLED IN REVIEW OF WARDS

The number of Salford councillors could be cut in a sweeping review of the city by the Local Government Boundary Commission for England..."The review will re-draw ward boundaries across the city as well as deciding how many councillors should be elected to the council in total" said a spokesperson for the Commission.

Salford currently has three councillors per ward but, with new wards possibly emerging as the city grows, this might be cut to two per ward.

AS £5.5MILLION AVOIDED BY DEVELOPERS SALFORD MAYOR SAYS IT'S A 'MYTH'!

In the latest issue of Salford Council's propaganda mag, Life in Salford, Salford City Mayor, Paul Dennett, has denounced the "myth" that "developers don't contribute money to the city. It's simply not true" he says.

Yes, they do contribute some money but they also avoid millions of pounds in payments and provision of affordable housing. Indeed, Salford Star analysis shows that developers avoided almost £5.5million in payments last year, as the Mayor only tells half the truth.

HUGE PAY RISES FOR SALFORD CITY COUNCIL OFFICERS

Star date: 17th April 2018

ASSISTANT DIRECTORS TO GET HUGE PAY RISES

Cash-strapped Salford City Council is to give huge pay rises to senior officers after a 'job evaluation exercise' moved them well up the pay scale. It follows the resignation of the Director of Finance and Corporate Business, and spreading the majority of his salary amongst other re-titled roles.

The Salford Star believes the officers are in line to share around £54,000 between them.
