Save Pomona Gathering Shows Peoples’ Love For Pomona And Its’ Wildlife

#SavePomona #LovePomona #SalfordDocklandsProject #EdenProjectForNorth

Around 70 people, including members of the Manchester Ship Canal World Heritage Group and Green Party, Labour Party and Pirate Party politicians, braved the tropical Mancunian weather to say SAVE POMONA and see for themselves the unique ecosystem that has formed on Pomona Docks

This event was one of two activist events on the Salford Docklands with a FREE PALESTINE boat on the Manchester Ship Canal declaring FREEDOM FOR PALESTINE

The Save Pomona Gathering happened just as the Eden Project in Cornwall became the country’s number one land-mark

Many people in the Manchester, Salford and Trafford area are in agreement that Pomona should be a Northern Eden Project as over 1,100 people have signed this petition, and many have made comments and objections to the Trafford Council Planning Department, despite comments and objections to the plans only being open for a few days, and the petition has only been around for a few days also

Highlights of the day included four of the Salford Docklands Big Five, Lapwing, Mute Swan, Cormorant and Grey Heron, a Great Crested Grebe on the Manchester Ship Canal, many hundreds of bees on the plants on Pomona, the discovery of Heather, a huge floral find in an urban area, Grasshoppers, a huge flock of 300 House Sparrows, a juvenile Song Thrush (evidence of successful breeding of this species) and today, at Pomona, 2 Peregrine Falcons, one of the Manchester Big Five
