SUKAI SUPPORT GROWS IN SALFORD

Tonight, during the early evening rush hour, supporters of Gambian refugee Sukai Jack gathered on Langworthy Road to stage a candle lit demo in support of her bid to stay in Salford.

Sukai Jack escaped to the UK after being tortured and raped in jail at the hands of the Gambian authorities. She arrived in Salford seeking sanctuary and found friends at the Salford Women's Centre at the top of Langworthy Road.  A month ago they launched a campaign to bring her plight to as many people as possible and to fight the British Government which has turned down Sukai's appeals to stay.

The campaign reached the front pages of Gambia's Freedom Newspaper and now Sukai would be in even more danger should she be returned to her native country. Tonight her supporters, who included Lib Dem Leader Norman Owen, Councillor Mary Ferrer and representatives from UNISON trade union, got a great reception from passing motorists as they chanted `Let Sukai Stay!'

There is a long way to go before Sukai can be free from the Gambian authorities but Salfordians, young and old, came out on a cold rain-sodden night to proclaim `Keep Sukai Safe In Salford!'

AS £5.5MILLION AVOIDED BY DEVELOPERS SALFORD MAYOR SAYS IT'S A 'MYTH'!

In the latest issue of Salford Council's propaganda mag, Life in Salford, Salford City Mayor, Paul Dennett, has denounced the "myth" that "developers don't contribute money to the city. It's simply not true" he says.

Yes, they do contribute some money but they also avoid millions of pounds in payments and provision of affordable housing. Indeed, Salford Star analysis shows that developers avoided almost £5.5million in payments last year, as the Mayor only tells half the truth.
