This Friday, 17th February, sees a mega line-up of musicians and poets at the Star Inn in Broughton, which is a fundraiser for what is expected to be a huge protest in London on 4th March to save #OurNHS.

"The reason we're doing it is to try and get as many people as we can down to the national NHS demo" says Tom Long, who will also be performing his brand of lo-fi slowcore folk at the Star Inn event.

"We feel it's important to send a message loud and clear to the Government that the NHS is not for sale and that there's people willing to fight for it, especially when the uncertainty of Trump and Brexit looms large" he adds "We also feel that keeping the momentum of the anti Trump marches is important, and hopefully we can channel some of that energy into the issues that are effecting us directly in the UK."

Also appearing at the fundraiser are: Irma Vep - `a bluesman for this age of uncertainty'; poet John G Hall - `a colossal firebrand and Wythenshawe's one true beat'; Lucy and Virginia - `classic folksong craft with blissful harmonies'; Milton Pena - `former surgeon, author and NHS whistleblower'; Steph Pike - `tireless activist and political poet'; We Signal Fire - `huge melodies and mighty punk bombast' and DBH - `a master of instrumental song craft which finds the sweet spot between folk, blues and modern American primitive'...

Sounds like a top night with some energy, attitude and, most of all, a great mission to get as many people as possible sticking one on the Tory health cuts...

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.
