and live on Freeview channel 276
Wigan Trades Council and trade unions were due to protest tomorrow, with leafletting events outside Brocol House and in the town centre.
A protest scheduled to take place in Leigh town centre tomorrow will still go ahead, with Unite community branch, the People's Assembly and a samba band due to be on Bradshawgate from 1pm to 2pm.
They will oppose the Government's plans to remove the £20 uplift to universal credit, which was introduced to help people deal with the impact of the coronavirus pandemic.
