Join the Protest Against Austerity and End the Pay Cap

TAKE BACK MANCHESTER FESTIVAL: 30TH SEPTEMBER – 4TH OCTOBER

The People’s Assembly will be holding a week of protest, demonstrations, cultural events, rallies, comedy, music and public meetings all across Manchester while the Conservative Party hold their conference there.

The election result has left Theresa May and the Conservative Party with a weak, unstable Government and represents a rejection of their vicious policies that only benefit those at the top.

The festival will demonstrate the huge opposition to the politics of austerity, racism and war and demand an alternative that works for everyone.

The festival will include a national demonstration on the day the Conservative Party Conference opens:

National Demonstration, Sunday 1 October
Assemble 12pm, Castlefield Arena
Rice Street, Manchester M3 4JR

UNISON is supporting the demonstration and in order to prepare for the week of events the branch is holding an organising meeting at 5.30pm on Wednesday 13th September in the branch office located at:

UNISON Office, Room 321 3rd Floor, Town Hall, Albert Square, Manchester M60 2LA.

If you wish to attend the meeting just turn up on the day, or contact the branch office if you have questions on 0161 254 7500 (Email: unison@manchester.gov.uk).

Further information can be found on the People’s Assembly website.
