Happened to have a chat with Wendy Olsen Salford Green Party the other day. Just missed a bus on the way home so it seemed like a plan to drop into the Crescent to kill a little time and chill as the traffic was getting heavier.
Whilst making myself comfortable, couldn’t help but notice a couple of placards on the floor and wouldn’t you know a new podcast was on the way with Wendy Olsen Salford Green Party and David Jones Wendy’s chief of staff.
Wendy told me a little more about what she’s been doing recently and more than a little info about what’s what in the 2016 local elections.
Social Cleansing what’s it all about?
“Salford City Council, hand in hand with big construction firms, has taken away huge chunks of riverbank lands and created high priced housing.
Salford Green Party are concerned about Whit Lane and Charlestown area after the council started a building plan on an area traditionally used for families for children to play on.
They are worried that there is not enough planning, there is social cleansing by forcing out the long-term low-income residents and basically the council favours the Gentrification; not for the Salford people but for incomers”
That quote was taken from the newsletter that was freely available from Wendy and David whilst they we’re friendly enough to share their time discussing more about the future happenings within Salford Green Party with yours truly.
