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.

BUILE HILL MANSION SUPPORT GROUP MEETING HEARS OF 'CHINESE' PLANS FOR SALFORD

Over the last few months, rumours of a Chinese buyout of the AJ Bell Stadium and its land, hand outs for the Buile Hill Mansion and a possible plan for a Salford Red Devils takeover have been louder than bombs. At last night's meeting of the Buile Hill Mansion Support Group, these plans were aired in public for the first time.

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.
