Manchester March For The Alternative

Date: Sunday 2 October
Assemble 12 noon Liverpool Road (off Deansgate)

This year the Conservative Party are having their annual Conference in Manchester and the TUC is organising a march and rally to show opposition to the Coalition Government’s disastrous policies of pay freezes, cuts and attacks on public services that are producing rising unemployment, cuts in living standards and stagnation. The march will also show the support for The Alternative. We need jobs, growth and justice for a sustainable future and this event will send that message loud and clear.

The TUC is calling for the maximum support and are encouraging all union members to attend. More details can be found here

  2. Ok have your march/protest/riot/etc. but mind your manners and remember to “do unto others as you would have them do unto you.” A word of advice – prove to the public that being a union member doesn’t mean that you have to behave like a thug.

    • As I’ve said before I think the Union Thug thing is very much a US phenomenon. On The Waterfront, Jimmy Hoffa and The Mafia etc.

      Even then union violence in the US was initially a direct response to the brutality of the police and hired mercenary strike breakers in the 20’s and 30’s who killed and maimed union activists engaged in legal industrial action.

      A mate of mine, John Newsinger, who is a historian is writing a history of US trade unionism and I’ve read a couple of chapters. It is truly shocking to read of the brutality meted out to union activists in this time.

  3. customer feedback: I like the old color scheme better – white blackground and black text. Don’t get fancy.

  4. Yeah, I think your right. I’ve gone back to white
