Wow! Anyone who thought anarchy in the UK was dead should pop along to the People's History Museum on 3rd December to see the amazing range of radical stuff that's going off out there – from radio stations, to art, to cycling clubs.

Stalls confirmed so far for the Anarchist Bookfair include Autonomedia, which `publish books on radical media, politics and the arts that seek to transcend party lines, bottom lines and straight lines', One Way Ticket To Cubesville `putting politics back into absurdity', and the Under The Pavement Radio Show `anarchy on the airwaves'…

Also represented will be the Manc Hunt Saboteurs, the Leeds Surrealist Group, and the Polyp Cartoonist's `never-previously-attempted work of cartoon magic, condensing the whole of world history into a graphic and completely wordless narrative'

The famous National Clarion Cycling Club 1895 which combines cycling with the principles of socialism will also be there, together with top big business botherers Corporate Watch, Manc-based DIY label Pumpkin Records, and squatters' action group, SQUASH.

There's also lots of campaigning indie media groups from around the country – that get the alternative news through by video, blogs, net sites and print.

Should be a fun, different day. And it's all free!

ARTISTS TO CHALLENGE HOUSING POLICIES WHILE LIVING IN LUXURY HOUSE

'You can't even stop your car to take in the breathtaking sterilization of the place...'

Last week, artists moved into a stunning Urban Splash house in the new Springfield Lane development as part of a year-long project called Tenancy in which they will explore 'what it's like to live in a city negotiating rapid change' and 'who is benefitting'.

The Springfield Lane development, being branded as in 'Manchester', has no affordable housing and avoided hundreds of thousands of pounds in planning fees. Can the artist project, actually sponsored by Tom Bloxham and Urban Splash, make a difference?
