A series of gigs, parties, rallies, meetings, screenings, comedy nights, educational events, and a National Demonstration on Sunday 1 October, in the city to let the Tories know that we won’t rest until we have chased them out of office.

“How dare the Tories come to our city?! A city annihilated by their cuts.” was how actor and friend of the People’s Assembly Maxine Peake put it last year. 2017 is the time to remind the Tories they are still not welcome in this great city.

Brian Eno is the latest to add his name to a series of events protesting at the Tory Party Conference.
The Take Back Manchester Festival organised by The People’s Assembly Against Austerity will run from Friday 29 September to Wednesday 4 October and includes a major national demonstration, public meetings, gigs, comedy, theatre, rallies and music to demand the alternative to austerity.
Others joining Brian Eno who will make appearances at events during the festival include: John McDonnell MP,  Guardian columnists Gary Younge & Owen Jones, Mancunian household favourites Julie Hesmondlagh & Maxine Peake, the revolution will be televised stars Jolyon Rubinstein and Heydon Prowse. Plus Trade Union leaders including Len McCluskey, Unite the Union General Secretary, Kevin Courtney from the teachers union and PCS General Secretary Mark Serwotka. Musicians Lowkey, Captain Ska and Children of Zeus will headline the demo after party.
The centre piece for the week will be a national demonstration on Sunday 1 October, assembling at Castlefield Bowl with a programme of speakers, marching through the city ending with closing speeches at Piccadilly Gardens. Tens of thousands are expected to attend with transport arranged from across the country. The demo will demand: No More Austerity, Scrap The Pay Cap, For decent Health, Homes, Jobs & Education.
