Manchester & Salford Anarchist Bookfair Saturday 29th November 2014 at People’s History Museum.
Ongoing actions/ campaigns:
From Manchester Animal Action:
Anti-Fur demo this Saturday at Harvey Nichols from 12 noon.
We’re keeping up the pressure, after their head of fashion was forced to resign because of the controversy caused by the reintroduction of fur. See:
Join us if you can from 12 Noon, at Harvey Nichols, 21 New Cathedral Street, Manchester, M1 1AD
From Northern Gas Gala:
Over the past weeks protest camp has been set up on the side of the road in Barton Moss, Salford leading to a site where a company ‘IGas’ were recently granted a permit to do ‘exploratory drilling’ for the next 3 months. This is the first stage to see if the geology is suitable for coal bed methane extraction and / or fracking – both dodgy and dangerous fossil fuel processes.

Peter Tatchell joins the Working Class Movement Library to mark LGBT History Month
Campaigner Peter Tatchell comes to Salford on Saturday 1 February 2014 to talk on the topic ‘Queer Britain – the struggle for LGBT rights 1958-2014’. Peter has been campaigning for human rights, democracy, LGBT freedom and global justice since 1967. He will discuss how the battle for law reform was won – one of the most successful law reform campaigns in British history – and the current challenges facing the LGBT community.
The talk is the Working Class Movement Library’s contribution to this year’s LGBT History Month, and takes place just down the road from the Library at the Old Fire Station, Crescent, Salford M5 4WT – courtesy of the University of Salford. The event begins at 2pm, admission free. All welcome.
