Star date: 20th June 2012

THE WORLD'S BIGGEST BANK JOB STARTS IN SALFORD  

Robin Hood Tax Training Event
Saturday 23rd June 1-4pm free

Everyone in Salford is being asked to become Robin Hood and force a new tax on the banks to solve the world's problems – from Swinton to Sydney. The Robin Hood Tax started as an idea, and is now a huge global movement. This Saturday the Robin Hood Tax campaign arrives in Manchester for a training event on how to change the world…

MERRY MEN AND WOMEN UNITE!

Take one look at the three minute Robin Hood Tax video which is on http://robinhoodtax.org.uk/  (watch now!!!), and it's obvious to anyone with a brain that a 0.05% tax on all the financial sector's transactions would very easily solve a lot of the world's problems – no Council cuts in Salford, for example.

The UK already taxes some bank transaction but if the Government takes it a bit further it could raise £20billion in this country alone….

"One of the reasons the government has not done more is the immense power of the City of London in lobbying and influencing politicians" states the Robin Hood Tax campaign "That is why huge public pressure is needed to convince the government it is more costly to ignore the people than to ignore the banks."

Everyone knows the banks and big business got us into this mess. Everyone knows that we're expected to pay for their greed. The Robin Hood Tax campaign allows everyone to say `No more robbin' bastards…We're all Robin Hood now…'

…And you get to dress up in a mask and a cool hat too!

Calls for a Robin Hood Tax are growing every day and celebs, religious groups, charities, trade unions and millions of people have signed up to support the campaign.

This Saturday the Robin Hood Tax campaign arrives in Manchester for a training event to give more details of the Tax and how people can make the idea a reality.

"With action going full steam ahead in Europe it's more important than ever to be pushing for the Robin Hood Tax - a simple idea whose time has come" Robin Hood's Danielle Paffard told the Salford Star "Join us at the training session this weekend to learn more about the campaign, where we're at now, and what we need to be doing next…"

Rachel Saunders, who went to the training event in London last week, says "I found it very informative and helpful in gaining a better understanding of what the campaign is all about, and what I can do to get involved."

The banks have made millions out of Salford, now it's payback time…

"The Robin Hood Tax campaign started as an idea. People loved it. We became a movement. And we're still growing. We are charities, green groups, trade unions, celebrities, religious leaders and politicians. We are part of a movement of campaigns in more than 25 countries around the world with millions of supporters. We believe it's time to rewrite the contract between banks and society…"

GOVERNMENT BLOCKS SALFORD CLADDING REPLACEMENT

Star date: 21st September 2018

SALFORD CITY COUNCIL CAN'T ACCESS £400MILLION GOVERNMENT CLADDING FUND

Salford City Council has been told by the Government that it can't access the £400million public fund to help with the cost of replacing dangerous cladding on the nine Pendleton blocks because it's part of a PFI.

HARROP FOLD HEAD SLAMS ‘PERSONAL VENDETTA’ OF SALFORD CITY COUNCIL

Star date: 19th September 2018

DREW POVEY ACCUSES SALFORD COUNCIL OF 'HEAVY HANDED' 'VENDETTA'

"I'm speaking up for myself but also all the leaders who have been in touch to say the same happened to them #TakeAStand..." Drew Povey

Drew Povey, the Executive Head of Harrop Fold in Little Hulton, has resigned from his post, slamming Salford Council's "heavy handed approach" while investigating 'administrative errors' at the school and accusing it of a "personal vendetta".

In an open letter to the school's governors, Drew Povey writes that he refuses to walk away from the school with a settlement and accept a gagging clause.  So he's gone public...to #TakeAStand.
