BOMBS AWAY OR NOT?

'Why We Need An Anti-War Government' Public Meeting
Saturday 17th February 2pm-4pm

Full details here...


As North Korea increasingly becomes a political timebomb, and no-one knows what the future holds for Iran, Iraq, Syria and almost everywhere else where Trump and Putin stick their nose, a public meeting has been called with the title 'Why We Need An Anti-War Government'...

"War is on the horizon. But it doesn't have to be this way" states the blurb for the event, which runs on Saturday 17th February at the Mechanics Institute in Manchester. 

The speakers, who include Afzal Khan, MP for Manchester Gorton, and Alex Davidson, Secretary of Manchester Trades Union Council, "will set out the case for an independent foreign policy and an economy built on peace and prosperity, not war and austerity" and "will focus on the practical steps the people of Manchester, Salford and towns across Greater Manchester can take to oppose the ruling class's drive to war."
 
It's organised by Manchester Stop the War Coalition as part of a nationwide tour, and is supported by Greater Manchester and District CND, and Manchester Trades Union Council...
 
"With the Labour Party led by an anti-war politician of conviction, we have a unique opportunity to elect a government that puts international co-operation, security and peace before a so-called 'special relationship' that makes excuses for US-led imperialist plunder, arms companies' profits and permanent war" says Penny Hicks, Convenor of Manchester Stop the War.

"The fight for peace starts locally" she explains "Manchester has a proud tradition of progressive politics. It declared itself a Nuclear Free City in the 1980s and marched in huge numbers against the war in Iraq. It is vital that we come together and say 'Enough Ė we are the majority, we demand that our government puts peace before militarism'..."

SWINTON 'TRANSFORMATION'...PENDLETON 'PHASE 2'... CHARLESTOWN 'OPTIONS' AND MORE ALL BEING DECIDED BEHIND CLOSED DOORS

Did you know that there's a 'Masterplan' for Swinton's 'Transformation'? Or that there are plans proceeding about development in Charlestown, Pendleton, Ordsall and the Cambridge Industrial area in Lower Broughton? No? We're not surprised.

It's all happening behind closed doors at Salford City Council; the same council that prides itself on so-called 'transparency'.

DISTRAUGHT SALFORD DAUGHTER CANíT GET TO FAMILY GRAVE AT ST PAULíS CHURCH IN KERSAL

Star date: 14th August 2018

A TALE OF TWO CUSSONS, HIGH BRAMBLES AND IMPERIAL LEATHER

At the front of St Paul's Churchyard in Kersal, the first neat and tidy grave you come across is that of Alexander Cussons and famous family. However the grave of the less famous William Evans, who produced the first ever bar of Imperial Leather soap, is at the very back of the yard and totally inaccessible, literally buried beneath 6ft high weeds and brambles.

William Evans' great granddaughter, Lesley Northall, is distraught as she wants to add her mother's ashes to the site but can't get near it. This isn't just the tale of two Cussons gurus but also of a church struggling for resources.
