Star date: 30th September 2012

CLASS ACTIONS, TROJAN HORSE, RAPID PIG AND SALFORD MEDIA CITY GANG UP AGAINST THE CUTS

Salford Against The Cuts Benefit
Friday 5th October from 7:30pm
Islington Mill

Mental Health cuts…Day Care Centre cuts…Home Care cuts…cuts to everything and everyone in Salford. For the past five years, Salford Against The Cuts has been there holding public meetings, putting out leaflets and campaigning for better lives for the people of Salford. And it all costs money.

This Friday a fab line up of some of Salford's top bands and rappers appear at Islington Mill to raise money for the best cause in the city. It's only a fiver to get in. Be there. Or be cut…

On marches against the ConDem Government…on rallies against our Labour Council slashing public services…as every cut gets proposed, Salford Against The Cuts are there holding public meetings, handing out leaflets on the Precinct, attending demos and marches. Without Salford Against The Cuts there would be no wide ranging formal opposition to everything that's going down. It all costs money. And now it's payback time.

Next Friday, 5th October there's going to be a benefit concert for Salford Against The Cuts at Islington Mill with a great line up of Salford talent…political punk rappers Class Actions will be joined by the energy of Rapid Pig, Trojan Horse and Salford Media City, plus DJs Blendmaster Seque, Fiona Ledgard of All FM and the Salford City Radio DJs.

"The Benefit looks set to be a great night, following from last year's successful event" says Class Actions' Mike F "I am sure it will both raise funds, and the profile further after all of the hard work from the group. It is a privilege to be part of and perform at one of Salford's favourite live venues for what is such an important cause for the area."

Class Actions' Aslan AK adds: "Class Actions are looking forward to giving a political gig a political vibe. Salford Against the Cuts is a fantastic organisation and needs everyone's support. Like at Salford Music Festival, we will perform 'Rip Up the Sun' and demand literal audience participation! Kudos to all the people involved."

Blendmaster Seque, who's DJing the event underlines the sentiments coming from those playing the gig…

"I'm honoured to be invited to DJ at this event" he says "I've supported Salford Against the Cuts since the early days of the fight against the vicious and unfair Coalition cuts. My family have a proud tradition of Salfordian socialism. Islington Mill is a quality venue and I love tunes with a left wing vibe, so this is a perfect gig. Let's 'ave it!"

The Benefit is also being backed by Salford City UNISON…

"Salford Against the Cuts has fought some fantastic campaigns" says Steve North, branch secretary  "It brought staff and service users together when we successfully fought to keep Craig Hall and Humphrey Booth Day Centres open and is central to the current campaign for mental health services. On that basis I'm really glad that our UNISON Branch is supportive of SAC. This gig will be a good night, with some great bands in support of an excellent campaign."

The Benefit is a very affordable £5 entry and the fun starts at 7:30pm. And the Salford Star definitely supports this very worthwhile cause – for all our sakes!

PROTEST AT THE LOWRY AS STUDENTS GET DEGREES

Yesterday, as students received their degrees at The Lowry, Professor James Newell and UCU supporters were outside raising awareness of how the University of Salford sacked him, after 27 years service, for basically failing to chase money in what has become a national cause against the marketisation of education.

Almost 3,500 people have signed a petition calling for Professor Newell's reinstatement, as he told the Salford Star that marketisation "is the essential issue that underlies the exorbitant fees that students have to pay..."

'COMMUNISM IS FOR THE CHILDREN' SAYS SUBVERSIVE PEPPA PIG

Bizarre graffiti art has appeared near Salford Central Station depicting two delighted looking Peppa Pigs by the slogan 'Communism is for the children'. The art has led to much amusement and bemusement but is probably related to China banning the popular kids' cartoon.
