JUSTICE FOR GRAINGER HITS MANCHESTER PICCADILLY

Fathers Day Vigil
Sunday June 17th Noon
Piccadilly Gardens, Manchester

Last March, Lower Broughton's Anthony Grainger was shot dead by police as he sat unarmed in a car in Culcheth, in what his partner, Gail Hadfield, says was a "pre-planned execution".

Tomorrow, at noon in Piccadilly Gardens, Manchester, hundreds of people are expected to take part in a peaceful Fathers Day vigil in support of families and friends of all those who have lost their lives while in contact with the police.

In May, the Justice4Grainger campaign was out in force at May Day rallies in Salford and Manchester, raising awareness of the fight to reveal the truth of why Lower Broughton's unarmed Anthony Grainger was shot dead by police (see previous Salford Star article here) .

Leaflets given out to workers and activists at the rallies made horrific reading…

"On Saturday 3rd March 2012 at 7.20pm an incident took place at Jackson Street car park in Culcheth. Where a man was murdered by Greater Manchester Police. After using excessive tactics and force (blocking in the vehicle, shooting out two tyres with a shotgun, a CS gas canister was also deployed by hand into the vehicle), a fatal shot with a Heckler and Koch MP5 went directly to the heart of an unharmed man…"

The Justice4Grainger campaign was launched to find out the true facts of what happened that night and to bring those responsible to justice. Anthony Grainger's partner, Gail Hadfield, told the Salford Star that it was a "pre-planned execution…"

The Independent Police Complaints Commission (IPCC) has already announced that it will be pursuing a criminal investigation against the GMP officer who fired the shot that killed Anthony Grainger but Gail wants the investigation to go further...

"To get exactly what we want is going to be very hard" she added "because I want the police officers who gave the orders and issued the guns and bullets to be charged with joint enterprise, and I want the police officers on the night, the surveillance officer and the 16 armed officers to be charged with conspiracy and to get that is going to be quite hard."

Following fundraising events for Anthony Grainger's family, the campaign continues tomorrow, Sunday June 17th, with a noon vigil at Piccadilly Gardens in Manchester.

"We're all going to be sat down in silence, all peaceful, with our candles held high and our banners for everyone who's lost their lives in police custody" said Gail "There will be no trouble, no fighting, no riots, everything we're doing is peaceful. We don't want revenge, we want answers and justice…"

Dear Police State Resident. You want to pay more tax? No! Never! So where then does law and order come from? Who, of any intelligence and integrity is going to sign up for the only job available to UK citizens where his life is under threat every second of his working day .....for £23,000 a year? Even the Army only sees limited action. Answer, either a criminal with a private agenda, or an intellectual retard. This is why they reduced the entrance qualification to the Police to ZERO GCESs. They prefer backward applicants to criminal ones. Because, if we want quality we are going to have to fund £150,000 a year for a Police salary; that is what I would demand for that job. That means more taxes. But while the entire English nation is made up of greedy para-criminals who want everything at a cost of nothing that will never happen. You cannot blame the police for being themselves, incapable or rotten. It is the parasitic tax (non)payer who should be in the dock!

A known criminal with a record of car thefts, drug dealer, hanging out with armed robbers. He got what they have dished out in the past. Ambulance chasing family now just cashing in. Another scum bag off the streets.

One less criminal on the streets, got what he deserves. Is a risk you take if you break the law. He should have been sat in a stolen car.

These are just the events that occur when criminal ,low-intelligence ,violent, vicious,brainwashed cretins are recruited into the police . These malleable cretin-plods are readily available for assaults , fit-ups , framings , even murders . The rest of the plods are then free to continue their war against the motorist , as Government Revenue Collector Extortionists .

EVEN SALFORD MP IS BEING DISSED BY PENDLETON TOGETHER ON DANGEROUS CLADDING ISSUE

Star date: 23rd October 2018

PENDLETON TOGETHER TOTAL LACK OF ACCOUNTABILITY

The lack of accountability surrounding Pendleton Together, which manages the dangerously cladded blocks owned by Salford City Council, is becoming critical.

Even Salford and Eccles MP Rebecca Long-Bailey is getting dissed by the company when trying to set up meetings, while an email from the Salford Star asking to see the Trident report on safety in the blocks has been ignored, despite the Salford City Mayor stating that its conclusions, at least, should be released.

Here, the suspended chair of Malus Court TARA, Graeme Langton, reports on a Parliamentary reception he attended last week with the Salford MP...

CALLOUS COUNCIL TAX LETTER SCARES ELDERLY 

Hundreds, and possibly thousands, of letters have been sent by Salford City Council to elderly people threatening them with the loss of their single person Council Tax discount as it states 'Records show that multiple adults are living at your address', even though they are widows and widowers. The letter tells them to fill in an online form 'within the next 14 days' or the discount will be cancelled.

"It's not fair to be treating your senior citizens in this way, it's just callous" says Jill Royle, whose 92 year old non-computer literate mother became totally agitated on receiving the letter "Salford Council needs to know how much anguish it's caused."

AFTER TWO DAY STRIKE HOSPITAL WORKERS WIN NHS PAY PARITY

"We stuck together and we won!" Vicky, cleaner at Royal Bolton Hospital

Bolton Royal Hospital workers are celebrating a massive victory after taking two days of strike action over pay parity earlier this month, supported by Salford UNISON and many other trade unionists.

The workers, who include cleaners, catering staff, porters and security staff, are employed by Bolton NHS Trust's subsidiary company iFM, doing the same jobs as other NHS workers but were offered pay at a lesser rate. Now they have won an increase in line with other NHS workers, backdated to last April.

DIRTY NAPPIES AND PLASTIC BAGS PUT IN BLUE BINS

Tonnes of Salford's paper and card recycling collections are being rejected as people put the wrong stuff in blue bins, including dirty nappies, plastic bags, polystyrene packing and even electrical items.

Now Recycle for Greater Manchester has teamed up with Salford City Council to launch a What's In The Box? campaign to remind residents that only newspapers, magazines, greeting cards, paper wrapping paper, cardboard boxes and junk mail and envelopes can be put in the blue bins.
