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.

Wednesday 12th March
Seattle Solidarity Network (SeaSol) have spearheaded a new way of applying tried and tested direct action tactics against crooked bosses and landlords with great success. They take on winnable fights with a plan of action that ensures they are winnable and building consciousness as the struggles continue. Their methods have picked up momentum beyond North America and Solidarity Networks in the same vein are now active across the globe. MANCHESTER SOLNET would like to invite you to a talk/discussion with a member of Glasgow SolNet about why they think the model has been right for conditions in Seattle, Glasgow, and beyond. The main aim of the discussion will be to look at the model and find out if it would be of use in Manchester.
The initial meeting is on 12th March at the Friends’ Meeting House from 6.30pm
