SALFORD AGAINST THE CUTS
 

Star date: 13th June 2010 

PROTEST AGAINST THE CUTS IN SALFORD
Tuesday 22nd June 4:45pm
Salford Civic Centre 

The Hazel Must Go! campaign, which bravely stood up to Hazel Blears' indiscretions during the General Election, has now formed itself into TUSC - Trade Union and Socialist Coalition - and has called a Demonstration Against The Cuts on the day the national ConDem coalition announces its first budget.

The demo will call on Salford City Council to resist the cuts in public services that ex-Etonian George Osborne will inevitably be pursuing, and will urge the Council to demand proper Government investment in the city.

While the Government coalition of Tories and Lib Dems will be attempting to roll back the years with massive cuts in public services, Salford now has TUSC, its own coalition of trade unionists, community campaigners, socialists and anybody else who wants to stand up to cuts in services and jobs.

While the Government attempts to make ordinary people pay for an economic crisis created by greedy bankers and their bonuses, Salford, as an already disadvantaged city, will be hit hard.

"We know that this budget will mean massive cuts in public services and we don't feel people in Salford should have to suffer the consequences of a recession we did not create" says Steven North, acting secretary of TUSC.

"We want to send a clear message to Salford's Labour Council that not only should it oppose these cuts publicly, it should also campaign against them and work with others who a re doing the same" he adds "The correct first step would be for John Merry to come out and declare that the Council will not set a cuts budget and will instead set a needs budget and fight for the investment that Salford needs."

Demonstration Against The Cuts
Tuesday 22nd June 4:45pm
Salford Civic Centre, Chorley Road, Swinton

There is also going to be a Public Meeting on Thursday July 1st 7:30pm Pendleton Bowling Club, Eccles Old Road to discuss the campaign.

SALFORD LADY MARGARET MCHALE TURNS ONE HUNDRED AT THE BROUGHTONS

FROM HANKY PARK TO LITTLETON ROAD VIA LANCASTER BOMBERS AND THE 'MONKEY RUN'

Salford's Margaret McHale turned one hundred this week as her six children and relatives gathered for a huge party at The Broughtons Care Home. Born in Hanky Park, Margaret moved around central Salford, to Ellor Street, Warburton Street and finally to Littleton Road, as part of the slum clearances.

A proper Salford lass, Margaret worked on Lancaster Bombers during the war and as a machinist in Strangeways, and, as the family partied with residents and staff, there were a zillion anecdotes that will echo with loads of local families.
