Greater Manchester Citizens are dong an action this coming Friday 20th January bringing together communities to show solidarity with rest of the world. On the day of Donald Trump’s inauguration as president of the USA, banners will be dropped from bridges across the country to send a simple, hopeful message: we will bridges, not walls in the face of hate and fear, lies and division.
The action in Manchester will be taking place at Hulme Bridge this Friday 20th January from 8.15am – 8.45am (Directly above the Princess Parkway and a 10 minute walk down Booth street West off Oxford Road)
The action will bring together community groups working with Greater Manchester Citizens as well as key leaders from the city. We will have an opportunity to hear from some of these speakers at the action. There will also be media present to report on the action and show a message of solidarity from the Citizens of Manchester.
Sir Peter Fahy the former Chief Constable of Greater Manchester Police who Chair’s the Greater Manchester Citizens sponsoring committee said "There are understandable fears about uncontrolled immigration from all communities and illegal migration is not the answer to the problems of the developing world, but it is about the tone of that debate and our commitment to find shared solutions rather than scapegoating certain minority groups."
