On Sunday Sue Fraser and Angela joined around 55 supporters of Palestine for a walk in Manchester organised by the Saddleworth Palestine Women’s Scholarship Fund. The SPWSF raises money to support scholarships for women in Gaza to access higher education. The walk led by Steve Roman took us from a smartly revamped Victoria Station to some of the most well-known sites associated with Manchester’s social and political history: the site of the Peterloo Massacre, the Free Trade Hall, a memorial to Alan Turing and a statue of Abraham Lincoln which was unveiled in 1919 with a plaque referring to ‘Lancashire’s friendship to the cause for which he lived and died,’ the slave trade. £587 was raised for the Scholarship Fund, more than enough to pay one woman’s tuition fees for a full academic year.
