Next up is the annual Manchester Trades Union Council May Day March which starts at All Saints Park on Oxford Road from 1130 on Saturday 30 April and weaves its way to Sackville Gardens in the city centre. Join the Manchester People's Assembly who will be marching- look out for our banner- and then visit our stall, and the other activities taking place in Sackville Gardens and at the Mechanics Institute. Music, talks, food stalls and plenty of fantastic campaign groups to give that real feeling of May Day solidarity.
We'll be handing out flyers with details of our next meeting on 10 May and the National People's Assembly Convoy to Calais action on 17 and 18 June.
A big thank you to the terrific acts at the Manchester People's Assembly Beat Back gig on 28 April. It showed how politics can be fun and we raised some valuable funds for Manchester People's Assembly campaigning. We're already planning future Beat Back gigs so watch this space. Thanks to all who supported the event but special thanks to The Tapestry, Novustory, Gareth Evans , Gerry Potter and Manchester People's Assembly Against Austerity's very own punk poet and rabble rouser, Steph Pike.
