Anti-Tory Protests. Make these Anti-Capitalist

 The Tory Party Conference is taking place in Manchester at the start of October, and the People’s Assembly are organising a number of related events. See .

 There will be a big march and demo on Sunday 3 October at 12.00, assembling on Oxford Road near Whitworth Park, M14 4PW (this is just past the main University of Manchester buildings, and next to Manchester Royal Infirmary). Members who already have plenty of leaflets and back issues of the Standard can go straight there if they wish.

However, there are likely to be thousands of people at the starting point, so it might be better for members to meet at 12.00, also on Oxford Road but closer to the city centre. I suggest meeting outside the Eighth Day, a vegetarian shop and cafe (111 Oxford Road, M1 7DU); this is opposite All Saints Park.

 The nearest train station is Oxford Road, and the nearest tram stop is St. Peter’s Square. We can distribute leaflets to members (and please bring any you have), and either walk towards the start of the march or wait till it reaches us. The march appears to be routed up Oxford Road and then over to Deansgate/Castlefield.

Various other events are taking place on the Saturday, Monday and Tuesday of the Conference; see the above web page. Many of these will be held in a marquee in Piccadilly Gardens.
