As the Tories held their conference in Manchester, tens of thousands of people took to the streets in opposition to a government that is hanging on by a thread

The streets around the Tory party conference in Manchester were filled with an incredible mix of people from across the country. They were united by a clear message for this government: we won’t wait for you to collapse, and we will bring you down as soon as we can.

Protestors from the Grenfell solidarity campaign rubbed shoulders with rail workers, NHS campaigners, disabled activists and a vibrant array of anti-cuts groups.
