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!

FURNESS QUAY DEVELOPER PROVIDES NO AFFORDABLE HOUSING ON HUGE APARTMENT SCHEME

Salford's planning scandal is to go up another gear this week when an application by developer De Trafford for 421 apartments in blocks up to 27 storeys high on the site of Furness Quay is considered by councillors. Thanks to Salford City Council policies, the developer will be providing no affordable properties, while, through 'viability' assessments it is set to avoid over £1million in planning fees.

Meanwhile, the English Cities Fund (ECf) is continuing its secrecy in relation to new apartments and an office development around Chapel Street and New Bailey.
