Bedroom tax eviction respite in Salford
At less than 24 hours notice over 40 people turned up in Walkden, Salford, to prevent an eviction for bedroom tax arrears.
News came through that City West Housing Association had backed off, and a judge had ordered a month's respite.
A number of anti-fracking campaigners from the Barton Moss camp supported the picket and speakers from Salford City Unison and Salford against Cuts spoke at a victory rally.
Also a speaker brought solidarity from South Manchester Against Cuts and called on people to support the Trade Unionist and Socialist Coalition in May's local elections.
Both anti-cuts group speakers said they are standing anti-bedroom tax and anti-cuts candidates against Labour in the local elections [as part of TUSC].
If we are needed we'll be back in a month!
