SALFORD NOVEMBER 30TH STRIKE AND MARCH
 

Star date: 27th November 2011

SALFORD NOVEMBER 30TH MARCH

10:30am November 30th
Bexley Square
Chapel St 

Salford Against The Cuts and Salford TUC is organizing a rally in Bexley Square followed by a march to the mass rally in Manchester City Centre this Wednesday 30th November.

Over three million people nationally will be on strike that day and this is Salford showing its anger against the ConDem Government's attack on pensions.

Full story here…


This Wednesday, 30th November, around three million public sector workers, including teachers, firemen, council workers and civil servants, will be on strike to defend their pensions against attacks by the ConDem Government.

As part of the TUC National Day Of Action, Salford TUC, Salford Against The Cuts and Salford Unison, amongst others, are supporting a rally at Bexley Square, followed by a Salford march into Manchester city centre to meet up with a huge rally taking place in Whitworth Park.

"November 30th is primarily about workers saying to this Government that we will not stand for anything less than a decent retirement after a lifetime of public service" says Steve North, branch secretary for Salford City Unison

"However, this rally is also about the people of Salford telling the Government that we will continue to fight their brutal cuts agenda" he adds "As well as public sector workers, we will have private sector workers and pensioners and service user representatives speaking on the day. It's about all of us."

Paul Foley, one of the Manchester march co-ordinators and Unison Health Organiser, expects thousands of workers to attend.

"Next Wednesday, Manchester will witness the biggest level of industrial action in a generation" he says "Local Government, Health, School, University, Civil Service, Police and Justice workers from all over the city will be striking and marching to defend their pensions. The message will be clear, Ministers' proposals to make public sector workers work longer, pay more and get less in their pensions are unfair.

"The economic woes of the country were not caused by dedicated public sector workers who provide essential services to the vulnerable in society" he adds "There is no justification to the Ministers' attacks on our members' pensions."

SALFORD RESIDENTS LAUNCH NEW SANTA PROTEST IN RESPONSE TO BELLWAY HOMES LEGAL THREATS TO STOP PROTESTS

AS BELLWAY THREATENS INJUNCTIONS AND FINES, SWINTON RESIDENTS RESPOND WITH SANTA PROTEST

"Saturday is the day for reminding Bellway that we have every right to peaceful assembly on a public footpath..."

Two weeks ago, Bellway Homes' solicitors wrote to the Saving Our Neighbourhood campaign - which is objecting to the company's mad construction of 241 houses off Campbell Road in Swinton - threatening injunctions and fines unless it wrote an 'undertaking' not to "interfere and/or attempt to interfere with Bellway's legitimate commercial interests".

In response, tomorrow at noon, residents will hold a special Santa protest at the site entrance..."It's vital that our community makes it clear that a threat from a multi-billion pound developer...will not scare us into signing away our democratic legal rights" states the group.
