They don’t know when to quit! Following the Global Justice Now national activists meeting on the eve of the Tory Party conference, commuters outside Manchester Piccadilly railway station were treated to another puppet show.
This time, activists from Sheffield and Nottingham took part, as David Davis and Liam Fox danced at Trump’s orders, while passers-by took photos and signed Dangerous Deals in the Dark postcards to send to the Trade Secretary, demanding transparency in forthcoming trade deals.
We will be at the demonstration and counter-festival outside the Conservative Party conference next month, doing stunts and collecting signatures on our trade democracy petition.
Help us Take Back Manchester on Sunday 1 October, outside the Conservative Party conference at Manchester Central Conference Centre. We’d love for activists from outside Manchester to join us too. If you’re interested in getting involved, email us.

We were out doing street tableaux with Greater Manchester Trade Action Network this month, highlighting Dangerous Deals in the Dark. Our puppet show illustrated the power of both the US and corporate capital over our government. Look out for further appearances on the streets of Manchester in the coming weeks and months.
