PROTEST AT TORY PARTY CONFERENCE

 SUNDAY 1ST OCTOBER 2017 saw a reported 30,000  people turning up to protest at the Tory Party conference in Manchester. A rally was held at the Castlefield Arena.

The Mirror reported

"Unison regional rep Kevan Nelson told the crowd: "It's not possible for the Tories to be for working people. They're the enemies of the poor. They're the enemies of the disabled. They're the enemies of housing tenants. They're the enemies of low-paid workers."

The anti-austerity demo finished in Piccadilly Gardens where anti-EU protesters from a separate demo had already arrived.

The Smiths songs and chants of "oh Jeremy Corbyn " and "Tories out" rang out as at the Take Back Manchester demo organised by the People's Assembly Against Austerity."Former Coranation Street  Julie Hesmondhalghwas (pictured above) was one of the speakers, along with Union bosses.
