Solidarity with the RMT No to Driver Only Trains No to Fascist Thugs!

This Saturday, 12th January 2019, hundreds of trade unionists and other anti fascists attended a rally in support of striking RMT members at Victoria Station to support their campaign of industrial action againsi driver only trains and in respose to the disgusting attack by fascists which they were subject to the week before,and which amongst other outrages, saw an Asian picket accused of being a paedophile groomer simply because of his ethnicity.

Those attending included activists from Unite, PCS, Unison, Stand up to Racism, Manchester and Salford Trades Councils and Labour Party members including Manchester city councillors. A number of people attended from other parts of the North West and wider. One of those addressing the rally was Steve Hedley, RMT assistant general secretary who himself was assaulted by fascists last year in London.

Communist Party and Young Communist League members were also present and a leaflet given out (see below).

Hyde, Greater Manchester- Police tell pub landlord to remove pic of Che Guevara

From the Morning Star Monday 24th December 2018

POLICE in Greater Manchester have told a pub to take down its picture of Che Guevara, a landlord has alleged.

Geoff Oliver, who owns The Sportsman in Hyde, claimed at the weekend that he may face a criminal investigation for displaying a photo of the revolutionary in his pub window.

Mr Oliver told the Star that he was woken up on Friday morning by the local police licensing officer, who told him that complaints had been received about him displaying a photograph of a “terrorist.”
The officer assured Mr Oliver that he could display the picture of Che inside the establishment, but warned that if he did not take it down from the window, he would be obliged to submit a report of the crime. This would then lead to a formal criminal investigation.
Mr Oliver, who also runs the Cuba Libre restaurant in the pub, told the Star that he would not be taking down the image of Che.

He also said that he felt there was a “degree of intimidation” behind the request, and speculated as to whether it was related to the pub’s imminent licensing review.

Dai Morgan, a regular at The Sportsman and the Cuba Libre, said: “This is a disgraceful attack on free speech and no laughing matter.

“Who is this shocking ignoramus? Che stands with Mandela as one of the great fighters for freedom of the 20th century.”

Sat 13th October 2018 1pm-3pm Friends Meeting House, 6 Mount Street, Manchester The TUC History and Future


The Communist Party and Young Communist League are committed to building the organisations that working people need to defend and extend our rights, and support our struggles for better pay and conditions at work, in solidarity with each other.  
And we are keen to discuss how this can be achieved in a period which is seeing low levels of union membership and the growth of precarious work on the one hand, but seeds of resistance on the other.

Andy Bain, national trade union organiser for the Communist Party will lead the discussion, which is open to everyone who wants to make a positive contribution , to learn more, or both!

We will also be showing a short film.

Public launch of a new Communist Party pamphlet 'We need REAL jobs' Monday 10th September Manchester

Image may contain: people standing

New pamphlet, launch meeting

In May, the CP and YCL jointly hosted a day school for mainly young union organisers in casualised, precarious employment. The School agreed to produce a pamphlet to recount the experiences of participants and describe how they thought unions, and jobs, could be changed. On 10 September the pamphlet 'We want REAL jobs' will be launched, backed up with social media advertising. On that day, we urge you to post and tweet about the pamphlet and meeting.  Details of both can be found at www.facebook.com/CPBritain.

Hosted by the Manchester communists, the meeting will be held Monday 10 September 6-7.30pm, Manchester Friends’ Meeting House, 6 Mount Street, Manchester M2 5NS, Room F13. Robert Griffiths will open the discussion. The meeting is open to all but there’s a special invite to get delegates and observers along.

Ordering 'We want REAL jobs'

Individual orders can be made from https://communist-party.org.uk/realjobs.html from 10 September.
Co-author Phil Katz anticipates a strong reception to the pamphlet. He says, “So many now work in the casualised sector that virtually no family in Britain is untouched by it. As such, the pamphlet cuts across employment sectors and generations, to inform and inspire readers. We urge you to think who you know could benefit from reading it and put a copy in their hands."
