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!

SALFORD QUAYS DEVELOPER TO AVOID £1MILLION PAYMENT WHILE NO AFFORDABLE HOUSING PROVIDED

FURNESS QUAY DEVELOPER PROVIDES NO AFFORDABLE HOUSING ON HUGE APARTMENT SCHEME

Salford's planning scandal is to go up another gear this week when an application by developer De Trafford for 421 apartments in blocks up to 27 storeys high on the site of Furness Quay is considered by councillors. Thanks to Salford City Council policies, the developer will be providing no affordable properties, while, through 'viability' assessments it is set to avoid over £1million in planning fees.

Meanwhile, the English Cities Fund (ECf) is continuing its secrecy in relation to new apartments and an office development around Chapel Street and New Bailey.
