March on Stoke: 700 join protest over new council HQ
ALMOST 700 protesters took to the streets today to fight the building of a £40 million new civic headquarters.
The turnout was double the numbers predicted by organisers of the March on Stoke campaign.
The noisy placard-waving procession walked from the proposed site of the building in Hanley to the existing council offices in Stoke which will be closed.
Demonstrators - led by a huge banner in the shape of a white elephant - included people of all ages and political persuasions.
