GREATER MANCHESTER CND SCREENS ORIGINAL GODZILLA

Godzilla
Saturday 17th February 6:30pm
3 Minute Theatre, Afflecks Arcade, Manchester 5

To mark sixty years of CND, the original 1954 classic film, Godzilla, is being screened by Greater Manchester and District CND. What's the link?

Full details here...


It is a classic film but what is the link between Ishiro Honda's 1954 Godzilla and the 60th anniversary of CND?

"Godzilla is both the definitive monster movie and a bold metaphor for the perils and paranoia of the nuclear age" states Greater Manchester and District CND, which is hosting the screening on Saturday 17th February.

"Godzilla, the story of a radiation-breathing beast, was released at the height of fears around nuclear testing" they add "The US tested nukes in March 1954 on Bikini Atoll in the Marshall Islands and the full impacts of the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki in 1945 were still being understood. The film's powerful warnings remain as relevant as ever, as nuclear war in the Asia Pacific region is back on the US President's agenda."

The film will be introduced by Sean Morris, Secretary of Mayors for Peace UK, who recently visited Hiroshima and met with members of the Hibakusha - survivors of the atomic bombings of Japan.

EVEN SALFORD MP IS BEING DISSED BY PENDLETON TOGETHER ON DANGEROUS CLADDING ISSUE

Star date: 23rd October 2018

PENDLETON TOGETHER TOTAL LACK OF ACCOUNTABILITY

The lack of accountability surrounding Pendleton Together, which manages the dangerously cladded blocks owned by Salford City Council, is becoming critical.

Even Salford and Eccles MP Rebecca Long-Bailey is getting dissed by the company when trying to set up meetings, while an email from the Salford Star asking to see the Trident report on safety in the blocks has been ignored, despite the Salford City Mayor stating that its conclusions, at least, should be released.

Here, the suspended chair of Malus Court TARA, Graeme Langton, reports on a Parliamentary reception he attended last week with the Salford MP...

CALLOUS COUNCIL TAX LETTER SCARES ELDERLY 

Hundreds, and possibly thousands, of letters have been sent by Salford City Council to elderly people threatening them with the loss of their single person Council Tax discount as it states 'Records show that multiple adults are living at your address', even though they are widows and widowers. The letter tells them to fill in an online form 'within the next 14 days' or the discount will be cancelled.

"It's not fair to be treating your senior citizens in this way, it's just callous" says Jill Royle, whose 92 year old non-computer literate mother became totally agitated on receiving the letter "Salford Council needs to know how much anguish it's caused."

BOLTON NHS HOSPITAL WORKERS CELEBRATE HUGE PAY VICTORY

AFTER TWO DAY STRIKE HOSPITAL WORKERS WIN NHS PAY PARITY

"We stuck together and we won!" Vicky, cleaner at Royal Bolton Hospital

Bolton Royal Hospital workers are celebrating a massive victory after taking two days of strike action over pay parity earlier this month, supported by Salford UNISON and many other trade unionists.

The workers, who include cleaners, catering staff, porters and security staff, are employed by Bolton NHS Trust's subsidiary company iFM, doing the same jobs as other NHS workers but were offered pay at a lesser rate. Now they have won an increase in line with other NHS workers, backdated to last April.
