The Conservative Party conference will be taking place in the week beginning in two weeks’ time – on Monday 5th October. On Sunday 4th October there will be a huge demonstration, organised by the People’s Assembly. http://www.thepeoplesassembly.org.uk/manctimetable
There will be many people marching for many important reasons. We’ll be joining those people protesting against the government’s attack on people and planet, which has stepped up a gear over the summer. http://www.campaigncc.org/climatechargesheet
There will be a climate bloc marching under the banner of ‘No to Austerity! No to Fracking Hell! Yes to One Million Climate Jobs!’ You can read about the bloc, including where it will assemble here https://www.facebook.com/events/511029289051613/
We have a few options for how we’re going to participate in the demo – one of which is joining this bloc at the assembly point. We’ll have this clear by Monday 28th September and will put it in the Fortnightly News. If you’re interested in joining us please get in touch.
We’ll probably be travelling to Manchester by train –although there is a cheaper alternative provided by Huddersfield TUC.
