Conservative Party Conference

Event Date: 1st October 2017
Location: Manchester

Dear CND groups,

The Conservative Party is holding its Annual Conference in Manchester this year and there will be a week of demonstrations, actions and events organised by the many, many people who oppose them.

Please accept our invitation to the following events.

1st October – Tories Out – Festival and demonstration

On the opening day of the conference, there will be a major festival and demonstration, starting in Castlefield Arena (Manchester) at 12pm.
- For info on the demonstration, visit here
- For info on the CND bloc at the demo, visit here

Please bring banners, placards and loud voices!

2nd October – Avoiding Apocalypse – CND public meeting – 5.15pm

Greater Manchester CND is hosting a meeting about the global situation and how we can build an alternative to a foreign policy based on nuclear weapons and war. Speakers will include: Dr Kate Hudson (General Secretary of CND), Ann Feltham (Parliamentary Officer at CAAT) and Dr Jenny Clegg (Expert on North East Asia and CND Council Member).

Fully details are here

NB. This event will immediately precede a nearby event at 7pm with John McDonnell MP, in conversation about ‘An Economy That Works For All’. It is possible to attend both events.

It would be great to get as many CND members as possible to Manchester, to show the Tories how we feel about them.

Any questions, let us know.

Best wishes,
Andrew Gibson
