Massive anti-Tory mobilisation in Manchester

A large UNISON contiingent was at the forefront of yesterday's 35,000 strong TUC organised March for the Alternative at the Tory Party conference in Manchester. UNISON Deputy Regional Convenor Rena Wood addressing the rally condemned Con Dem attacks on pensions which were 'paving the way for privatisation of public services' and called for a Yes vote in the ballot for strike action planned for 30 November: http://www.guardian.co.uk/politics/2011/oct/02/protesters-manchester-conservative-conference
