Our friends across the Pennines at GM&D CND are in full scale mobilisation for the arrival of the Tory Party Conference, with a range of run-up events as well as organising a Scrap Trident Block on the TUC national demonstration on the 4th October. Let’s get over there and support them! Full details below:
Placard-making session, 17th September, 2.30pm-5pm, MERCi, Bridge 5 Mill, 22a Beswick Street, Manchester M4 7JR
On 4th October, there will be a major demonstration to mark the opening of the Conservative Party Conference in Manchester. We’ve invited peace activists from around the country to join our Scrap Trident bloc on the demo. To get the anti-Trident message out, we’ve printed hundreds of placards but really need help putting them together. If you are able to volunteer, please contact Pam on email@example.com call 01612738283.
Non-Violent Direct Action training, 17th September, 7pm – 9pm, Friends Meeting House, Manchester
The People’s Assembly have called for five days of action from 3rd to 7th October around the Conservative Party’s Annual Conference to challenge their austerity agenda and show them they’re unwelcome in Manchester. Greater Manchester & District CND will be hosting a direct action training workshop for any campaigners interested in learning more or who planning an action during the conference. It will be accessible for any levels of experience and cover a basic introduction to Direct Action, effective and safe blockading, brainstorming sessions and more.
