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!

While the local election campaigns around Salford are pretty mild at the moment, in the Claremont ward it's all kicking off, with the LibDem candidate, Stef Lorenz, accusing Labour Party supporters of 'bullying', and the authorities of complicity.

Stef has been blocked from putting up posters in the local Height Library for a jumble sale and art auction in aid of restoring the old Height Youth Club, been forced to stand down as chair of that campaign and has been met with a volley of political abuse on social media. What's going on?
