Manchester and Salford Anarchist Bookfair 2012

Fed up of the mindless retail farming of the Trafford Centre? Fancy a browse around another world? Then the Manchester and Salford Anarchist Bookfair is for you.

It's a full day of discussions, ranging from `Anarchism For Beginners', to `History Is What's Happening' – a talk/workshop focusing on a video documentary about the current anarchist, punk and DIY scene around Manchester.

Meanwhile, campaign groups and anarchists coming from the North West and all over the country will be setting up stalls. These range from the Anarchist Federation itself, to Corporate Watch, which does top work exposing the dodgy environmental and social dealings of big corporations.

Also represented at the Bookfair will be the North West Labour History Society which documents radicalism in the area, Pants 4 Peace which promotes peace and happiness in actions of `mild defiance', and the North West Hunt Saboteurs Association, still fighting the bloodsports of rich nobs.

Well worth meeting are the self titled anarcho absurdists, One Way Ticket To Cubesville, who also co-present the Under The Pavement Radio show `bringing anarchy to the airwaves on ALLFM. On their blogspot they're currently promoting a new single by Crass label star Andy T called `I Still F*king Hate Thatcher' which they might even have for sale on their stall. Christmas present for those who have forgotten their political roots? Def!

Altogether there's around forty radical groups represented at the Bookfair. At a time when things seem so bland, despite attacks by the ConDem Government, here's a little ray of hope…

I will be there as well. I wonder how come that in Salford (and in all greater MCR) there are absolutely no radical bookshops or radical groups circulating radical/anarchist literature and documents. Too bad for a city of such importance for the working class movement.

Excellent . A chance for people to educate themselves , and understand how we are all ripped-off and cheated by the grubby shysters , crooks , cheats , fraudsters and liars who crawl into politics and local government in this bogus, farcical democracy, and hoodwink us all with their deceptions and treacheries. See you all at the Anarchist Bookfair .

'COMMUNISM IS FOR THE CHILDREN' SAYS SUBVERSIVE PEPPA PIG

Bizarre graffiti art has appeared near Salford Central Station depicting two delighted looking Peppa Pigs by the slogan 'Communism is for the children'. The art has led to much amusement and bemusement but is probably related to China banning the popular kids' cartoon.

SALFORD QUAYS DEVELOPER TO AVOID £1MILLION PAYMENT WHILE NO AFFORDABLE HOUSING PROVIDED

Star date: 17th July 2018

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.
