Afflecks Shows Support For Manchester

AFFLECKS is supporting the ‘I love Manchester’ campaign and has arranged a host of activities on Friday August 26.

The indie shopping arcade will be unveiling its first mosaic on the outside of the building featuring the iconic ‘And on the 6th day God created Manchester’ design first created by Leo Stanley in 1988 and recreated in a mosaic form by Mark Kennedy for Afflecks.

"As a community it's important that we stand up together and show that anti-social behaviour will not be tolerated and show those of disrespect that we love and feel proud of our city."

There will be all sorts of things going on throughout the day including a variety of live music and poetry and a permanent ‘Manchester wall’ where people can express what Manchester means to them.

Tony Martin, Manager of Afflecks, which is owned by property firm Bruntwood, said: "I along with everybody at Afflecks was shocked and disgusted by the events that took place in our city. As a community it's important that we stand up together and show that anti-social behaviour will not be tolerated and show those of disrespect that we love and feel proud of our city.

"Friday 26th August will be a great day, a celebration that we will be proud to be part of, a day when we can show everybody that we love Manchester."

Afflecks will also be unveiling a special ‘I love Manchester’ piece of artwork designed by local artist Spence Massey.

The whole of Afflecks will be open all weekend including Sunday and all stallholders are offering a 10 or 20 pwer cent discount to anyone wearing an ‘I love Manchester’ T-shirt.

Why?

I guess what anon means is that this is such a luvvie, perhaps dim (?) statement. it should read: 'give UK youth a chance'

Think about it...

Why do people riot?
Who got them there?
Who are the role models in today's UK society?
How do they behave?

Why does this not occur in the first world, like e.g. Norway?
Why does Norway, when a crisis (of other proportions) occurs, not put up yet more CCTV?

I have said it before and I will say it again:

There is an interest in the UK to keep a dumbed down underclass. For the benefit of a minority.

Think about it...
