Manchester TUC Planning Meeting

AN organisational meeting took place last Tuesday July 31st to plan for the TUC anti-austerity demonstration in London on Saturday October 20th.    The meeting was called by the Greater Manchester Asssociation of TUCs.    It was ably chaired by Steve Hall and about 40 trade unionists and community activists attended.   Detailed proposals were discussed re maximising the turn out in London.    However, there was no discussion about the objectives of such a demonstration bearing in mind the complete failure of the trade unions to organise effective action against the the Coalition Governments debt reduction and austerity programme.
