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 .

AS £5.5MILLION AVOIDED BY DEVELOPERS SALFORD MAYOR SAYS IT'S A 'MYTH'!

In the latest issue of Salford Council's propaganda mag, Life in Salford, Salford City Mayor, Paul Dennett, has denounced the "myth" that "developers don't contribute money to the city. It's simply not true" he says.

Yes, they do contribute some money but they also avoid millions of pounds in payments and provision of affordable housing. Indeed, Salford Star analysis shows that developers avoided almost £5.5million in payments last year, as the Mayor only tells half the truth.
