  1. Hey,

    I’m from Leeds (don’t scowl,hehe) though living in France. Me and some other people form around and about have set up a blog to promote political action from the ever more disparate ‘radical’ left. We’re really interested in the conjuncture of theory (political and philosophical) and action. We’re still in our infancy, but are totally up for getting in contact with blogs that have their feet on the ground, quite literally. My brother lives and works in Manchester (as a trainee doctor), so when I saw your blog I thought I’d contact you.

    Anyway, chat soon. I’ll blog roll you.

  2. UNCUT Society – TUC calls for a national mobilisation against the cuts

    Mervyn King, Governor of the Bank of England is (sort of.. ) suggesting that we.. students, artists, NGOs, trade unions, communities,
    healthcare workers, teachers, etc., aren’t really trying hard enough to let the Government and the Banks know what we think?

    Maybe he is right?

    See you there Saturday..


    The Uncut Society – an unconference event and workshop

    10 – 4.00pm Saturday 5th March, at MadLab Edge Street, Manchester M4 1HN

    “The price of this financial crisis is being borne by people who absolutely did not cause it.. I am surprised that the degree of public anger has not been greater than it is!” Mervyn King, Governor of the Bank of England (Guardian 2/3/11)

    “Artists and arts organizations in the NW are already contributing significantly to the national creative economy. They also have considerable potential political power and influence, and in the context of future public agendas and priorities for arts and cultural funding. They should now take hold of this opportunity to mobilize and also use that creative economic power and their immense cultural knowledge, for the wider public good..” Ian Hunter, Littoral Arts

    An ‘un-conference’ and workshop for artists, activists, arts administrators, community leaders, NGO project workers, trade unions, young people, elders, and media workers, etc., aimed at exploring a range of imaginative new media, creative, cultural and artistic means of mounting more effective and specifically non-violent oppositional tactics in the public sphere. Creating a united front and formulating a more coherent public critique of the Coalition Government’s regime of cuts, and to highlight the negative consequences that these are now having for civil society, the health service, education, the arts, communities and the environment. In collaboration with Arts Against the Cuts and the TUC.

    Lead speaker: Alan Manning Regional CEO TUC NW

    Building support in the North for the main TUC march in London on the 26th of March

  3. I would appreciate if someone could contact me with respect to republican/socialist groups that were formed or forming in the Manchester region during the 1870s and 1880s . I am attempting some writing based in this period and would appreciate any information or directions for research.
    Many thanks
    Neil Burton

  4. I am trying to send you and email but cannot find a valid email address
    I am in possession of some material written by John Jagger around 1927 re his visits to Russia whilst he was an mp and was PPS to Morrisson and was wondering about anyone who might be interested in publishing or using the diaries

  5. We are Hebe and Sophie and we are currently doing a project at The Pankhurst Centre. During the 1980s, squatters saved the Pankhurst Centre from demolition, and preserved this important heritage site. We are really interested in speaking to people who were involved in the centre, either as a squatter or a visitor during the 1980s and 90s. We are hoping to collect people’s stories and memories as part of an exhibition celebrating the history of Manchester’s women over the past 25 years. If you have any information, stories or memories in connection with the centre we would love to hear from you. Please send an email to either or
    Many thanks, Hebe & Sophie
