Trade justice campaigners joined tens of thousands who protested against British Government policies at the opening of the Conservative Party Conference in Manchester on Sunday.

At the opening rally in Castlefield Basin, members of GMTAN and Global Justice Manchester were busy encouraging people to send post cards to the Trade Secretary demanding democratic oversight of the new trade deals that the Government is already negotiating with dangerous dealers such as Donald Trump.


Trump, swinging a chlorinated rubber chicken and promising “great trade deals” was a particular attraction, with many people wanting photos of themselves in his company.


The march, set off up Liverpool Street, passing the conference venue before heading for the closing rally at Piccadilly Gardens.  The GMTAN/GJM contingent formed a notable presence.


Liam Fox was also spotted sneaking around and sucking up to Trump, no doubt plotting how best to sell off the NHS to US corporations.
