The Conservatives have decided to bring their annual champagne bash to Manchester, a city with a proud working class tradition and little support for their policies. In fact, with cuts disproportionately targeting the North of the England, its quite tactless. Lets make sure Cameron and Co head back to Westminster in no uncertainty about our determination to stop the policies they’re pursuing.
Keeping momentum going after the “March for the Alternative” six months earlier and June’s strike action, the TUC hope to bring over 50,000 people to Manchester to confront the Conservatives. With another round of public sector strikes expected to follow on 30th November, plus student, disability and other campaigns gearing up, it’ll be a really key moment in building an Autumn of Dissent.
