SALFORD HUMAN RIGHTS DAY FILM
 

Star date: 10th December 2010 

YOUR STATE OF EMERGENCY

To coincide with Human Rights Day, a top film by Salford movie maker Mark Ashmore has been re-released free online.

The 30 minute drama, Your State Of Emergency, is based on real human rights atrocities throughout the world transformed into the now. Watch what happens as a white, middle class family get the treatment usually handed out to subversives under regimes like Pol Pot and, er, the USA in Abu Ghraib…

1984? Nah, the 21st Century UK sees unimaginable horrors dished out to grandma and family in director/producer Mark Ashmore's short film, Your State Of Emergency.

It could be a ConDem Government dream, given what was happening on the streets of London yesterday – or some not-too-distant nightmare yet to come. Whatever, it certainly makes you – and the film's granny – wince with horror. We're all terrorists now…

"What we take for granted every day, our basic human rights, is a luxury, it's sad to say that but it's true" says Mark "The film holds a mirror up to our society, asks so many questions of where we could be heading without freedom of speech and human rights. With wiki leaks opening a Pandora's Box on our Government's real world views, I think stories like this film need to be seen so that we continue to question human society, look after ourselves and more importantly help others.

"At a time of public unrest across the world" he adds "it's important to have stories like this, which create art that reminds us of our basic human rights and in a way that is accessible to all."

Just watch this film – then watch your back!

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.
