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!'

FURNESS QUAY DEVELOPER PROVIDES NO AFFORDABLE HOUSING ON HUGE APARTMENT SCHEME

Salford's planning scandal is to go up another gear this week when an application by developer De Trafford for 421 apartments in blocks up to 27 storeys high on the site of Furness Quay is considered by councillors. Thanks to Salford City Council policies, the developer will be providing no affordable properties, while, through 'viability' assessments it is set to avoid over £1million in planning fees.

Meanwhile, the English Cities Fund (ECf) is continuing its secrecy in relation to new apartments and an office development around Chapel Street and New Bailey.
