GREATER MANCHESTER STOP THE WAR PUBLIC MEETING
 

Star date: 28th October 2018

AN ANTI-WAR GOVERNMENT AND INDEPENDENT FOREIGN POLICY?

Greater Manchester Stop the War public meeting
Tuesday 6th November 7pm
Methodist Central Hall, Manchester

Can Britain ever avoid getting involved in wars? And can there ever be an anti-war government in this country? The Greater Manchester Stop The War Coalition will discuss such issues at a public meeting on 6th November with speeches and debate.

Full details here...


Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, Syria...it seems like Britain is always going to war or looking to go to war, as American's poodle in international affairs. Now the Greater Manchester Stop The War Coalition is holding a public meeting with speakers Jenny Clegg from Greater Manchester CND, Stephen Bell from National Stop the War Coalition and Norma Turner from the Palestine Solidarity Campaign to discuss such issues and more...

"With our imperial masters in Washington gearing up for armed conflict with Russia and China, we only have more war to look forward to – and no guarantee that we will be insulated from its lethal effects" states the Greater Manchester Stop The War Coalition "Back on the home front, the creeping militarisation of society has seen the promotion of the bogus 'military covenant' and the spread of military propaganda in our schools. We need an anti-war government and an independent foreign policy more than ever."

Could such a thing ever be possible? Could there ever be a mass movement to demand such policies?

Greater Manchester Stop the War Public Meeting
Tuesday 6th November 7pm
Methodist Central Hall
Oldham Street, Manchester M1 1JQ

Oh dear! It seems that our GM Stop The War brethren have a legitimate cause to end war, until you read their terminology.

In answer to the questions at the end, yes there can. For the first time in living memory, a politician with stand-up anti-war credentials leads the Labour Party. We have a unique opportunity to elect a government committed to peace and prosperity, not war and austerity. This is worth fighting for. It’s 100 years since the end of the First World War, a conflict between rival ruling classes that cost the lives of millions of working-class people. The present ruling class will not hesitate to sacrifice millions more of us in their insane pursuit of global domination. When enough people wake up to this fact, when they realise that their own lives are considered infinitely less important to the ruling class than the profits of banks, oil companies and arms manufacturers, then we will have a mass movement.

SALFORD UNIVERSAL CREDIT RENT ARREARS DOUBLE THAT OF NON-UNIVERSAL CREDIT TENANTS

Star date: 16th November 2018

INCREDIBLE ARREARS INDICTMENT OF UNIVERSAL CREDIT

In a new City West Housing report for Salford City Council, it is revealed that, in Salford, the percentage of tenants on Universal Credit and in rent arrears is over double that for tenants who are not on Universal Credit. The figure is 78% compared to 37%.

City West currently has 1109 tenants claiming Universal Credit, and the company states that "The overall rent collection rate for these tenants for 18/19 is 93.05%, which is significantly lower than our collection rate for all tenants." It's yet another shocking indictment of the controversial benefit system.
