GREATER MANCHESTER MOVEMENT JOINS WORLD IN DEMANDING BETTER PLANET

People's Climate March and Lobby of Labour Party Conference
Sunday 21st September
Piccadilly Gardens 11am

21st September is both the eve of the United Nations summit on Climate Change in New York and the day the Labour Party is in Manchester for its Annual Conference. A huge People's Climate Change march around Manchester is happening from Piccadilly Gardens, followed by a massive lobby of the Labour Party Conference demanding that it bans fracking and commits to create one million new `climate jobs'.

Last Sunday, Salford campaigners met up at Barton Moss for a Reunion SolidariTEA Party, insisting that they were ready for when IGas return with a fracking application...

"If IGas return, not only will the protectors be welcomed back, but they will find a local community organised against them" said James Walsh of Irlam and Cadishead Frack Free "IGas are not wanted on the Moss. Fracking is not wanted anywhere."

While they wait, Salford anti-fracking campaigners will be joining the People's Climate March around Manchester next Sunday. It's part of a worldwide day to put pressure on the globe's political leaders who will be taking part in the United Nations summit on Climate Change in New York.

The rally will start in Piccadilly Gardens at 11am and will then proceed through the city centre to Manchester Central (GMex) where there will be speeches from Natalie Bennett, leader of the Green Party, the North West TUC, the Labour Party, CaCC, Friends of the Earth and others.

The lobby of the Labour Party Conference will be calling on Labour to: oppose the `fracking under homes' Infrastructure Bill; to ban fracking for shale gas, coal bed methane extraction and underground coal gasification everywhere – and, if elected, to create one million climate jobs to develop alternative renewable energy.

Rabid pro-fracking guru, Chris Faulkner, chief executive of Breitling Energy Corporation in Texas, is due to attend the Conference, which some might say shows which way the Party is swinging.
 
"In the global battle against Climate Change fracking is the current front line" says Martin Porter of Frack Free Greater Manchester "The people are a long way ahead of the politicians in recognising how serious the problem is. Politics in this country now consists of money speaking to power and vice versa. We want to bring democracy back into the fracking debate and make the party, that in 1945 really was 'the greenest government ever', listen to the voters."

On the evening of the 21st September, at 7:30pm, Salford's Barbara Keeley, MP for Worsley and Eccles South, will be one of the speakers, along with Trafford councillor Joanne Harding at a Fracking Is Not The Future fringe event hosted by Manchester Friends of the Earth at Novotel, 21 Dickinson St, Manchester M1 4LX.

Meanwhile, anti-fracking activity is coming to Salford direct on Friday 26th September with an 8am protest outside the £350 a head Fracking North Conference at MediaCityUK. More details to follow – see the Facebook event – click here

* There's also an Irlam and Cadishead community meeting on the subject of fracking this Thursday 18th September at 7pm at the Nag's Head , Liverpool Road, Irlam

This should be our first step in the Climate March! http://meatonomics.com/ "As environmental science has advanced, it has become apparent that the human appetite for animal flesh is a driving force behind virtually every major category of environmental damage now threatening the human future: deforestation, erosion, fresh water scarcity, air and water pollution, climate change, biodiversity loss, social injustice, the destabilization of communities, and the spread of disease." Worldwatch Institute, "Is Meat Sustainable?" “If every American skipped one meal of chicken per week and substituted vegetables and grains... the carbon dioxide savings would be the same as taking more than half a million cars off of U.S. roads.” Environmental Defense Fund "A 1% reduction in world-wide meat intake has the same benefit as a three trillion-dollar investment in solar energy." ~ Chris Mentzel, CEO of Clean Energy If Al Gore can do it, you can too! I did it 26 years ago and consider it one of the best decisions of my life.

SALFORD CITY COUNCIL TO BE LOBBIED BY UNIONS AND DISABLED CHILDREN’S PARENTS

SALFORD COUNCIL IGNORES UNIONS AND INSISTS THAT THE GRANGE WILL CLOSE

Lobby of Salford City Council
Wednesday 22nd February 8:15am-9am
Civic Centre, Swinton

Salford City Council has ignored trade unions and parents of disabled children who urged it to Save The Grange. Salford Mayor, Paul Dennett, a so-called Corbynite, in a response to the unions states the Council 'disagrees' with all the arguments to keep open Salford's only disabled children's home.

Tomorrow morning, parents of children who are at The Grange and trade union will lobby councillors before a full meeting of the Council to rubber stamp almost £16million of cuts.

CONSULTATIONS ON FUTURE OF SALFORD ‘DIDN’T MAKE SENSE’ ADMITS GMCA

Star date: 20th February 2017

MASSIVE GREEN BELT AND HOUSING PLANS 'DIDN'T MAKE SENSE TO ORDINARY PEOPLE'

Consultations on the future of Salford and every other area of Greater Manchester were "bewildering" and didn't "make sense to ordinary people" the Greater Manchester Combined Authority (GMCA) has admitted in a report to be discussed this week.

These consultations on devolution and the GM Spatial Framework were to decide on things like Green Belt destruction, how many houses were to be built and lots more. They were absolutely crucial to the future of the area, and for the GMCA to admit they didn't make sense is staggering, if true.
