Great Ancoats 2020
Let's seize this opportunity to get it right.
After voting to declare a Climate Emergency, Manchester City Council needs to demonstrate that business-as-usual is no longer acceptable.
Our new statue of Emmeline Pankhurst in St. Peter's square is inscribed "Deeds not Words".
What the Council do next about Great Ancoats Street shows us if their words will be translated into deeds... or they are just hot air.
Ultimately this is a test for Manchester's Labour Party - they need to decide whether they are they part of the solution... or part of the problem.
