Zine Club is a space where anyone can read, make zines, collaborate, be shown what a zine is and how to make one, work on an existing project, or ask more seasoned zine-makers any practical questions.

Just come and have a nice hang out and a chat with us! Zines to read and materials will be provided, but feel free to bring along anything you might want to use or donate.

All welcome. Zine Club is FREE but donations will be very welcome to cover materials and to raise money for Partisan. Pop and (vegan friendly) snacks will be available.

Saturday 30th September 2017

The Tories are heading to our city for their conference from 1st-4th October. On 1st we will take to the streets to show them what we think of their austerity, rampant inequality and corruption. We’ll show them that we hold them responsible for the gross injustice they promote, for the deaths of disabled people as a result of their welfare to work policies and for the sinking living standards of all but their friends, the super rich.

Before that though, we come together to celebrate our cultures of resistance and grassroots alternatives.

The Commoner’s Choir (http://www.commonerschoir.com/) will perform songs about food riots, inequality, the cultural harrying of the North, Woody Guthrie, the Calder Valley floods, homelessness, refugees, the printed word, and the rhyming possibilities of Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt… stitched together with soundbites, found sounds, and words of wisdom.

The choir will be joined by DJs with protest party vibes.

Letters To Morrissey

On Tuesday night I was invited to the opening show of the play “Letters from Morrissey ” by Gary McNair.

Not being a huge Morissey fan I was a bit apprehensive about whether or not I would enjoy it but I have to say I was very surprised.

Gary executed a fantastic performance. It was funny, moving and kept my attention from start to finish. It was loud, it was quiet and you didn’t have to be a fan to get it. Would definitely recommend it as something different to go and see. It’s not overlong either at 65 minutes.

Tickets £12.50 (full price/ concessions available).

Fast Forward Festival: Build Commons, Build Counter-Power
Thornbridge Outdoors Centre, Derbyshire

Laying the foundations for a post-capitalist society will require the building of diverse forms of social organisation, an emphasis on building non-capitalist forms of consciousness, and finding new sites of struggle. For Plan C, this currently means pursuing the combined strategies of social strike, directional demands and radical municipalism, but we want to learn from your perspectives, strategies and modes of organising.

At Fast Forward 2017 we want to delve further into these ideas, to discuss, imagine and develop what it means to build commons and build counter-power.

We want you to join us for three days of talks, workshops, parties, childcare, food and commoning!

Tricking the Impossible: word and type: Penny Rimbaud and Bracketpress

MMU Special Collections Gallery,
3rd Floor,
All Saints Library

Tricking the Impossible

This exhibition examines the close, collaborative relationship between the author Penny Rimbaud (co-founder of the highly influential punk rock collective Crass) and typesetter and book designer Christian Brett. The exhibition draws on extensive archive material from the Bracketpress archive held at Manchester Metropolitan University Special Collections. Brett’s collaborations with Rimbaud employ many expressive and conceptual typographic tricks, creating visually exciting designs for some very challenging texts. Along with published material (novels, essays, poetry and music) the exhibition also includes working designs for as yet unpublished works.

Bracketpress is an independent radical publisher of books, pamphlets and limited edition prints co-founded by Christian Brett & Alice Smith. The exhibition is part of RANDOM Archive, a collaborative project with Bury Art Museum & Sculpture Centre exploring text and type.

8th June 2017 What’s On

Sunday 11th June

On June 11th a faction of fascist group the English Defence League calling themselves “Gays Against Shariah” will be marching in central Manchester. The event initially had a single focus: to use the anniversary of the horrific Orlando massacre (in which 49 mostly Latinx LGBT people died) as a weapon against Muslim communities in the UK. After the 22/05 Manchester Arena bombing, the EDL subgroup swiftly rebranded their event as ‘Unite Against Terrorism’, jumping at the opportunity to further capitalize on tragedy to push their islamophobic and racist agenda.

We must mobilise and counter ‘Gays Against Shariah’ and the rest of the EDL. We need to stand tall and united in the face of fascism, declaring loudly that they do not speak for us, that we will not let them enact their campaign of hatred, intimidation and violence against Muslims, migrants and people of colour.

We need to resist cynical attempts of the far-right to exploit LGBT grief and struggle to violate other marginalized communities. We want to send a clear message: Islamophobia and racism are not welcome in Manchester, or anywhere else.

We organize this counter-demo as a broad LGBT+ coalition. All are welcome to join us on June 11th, drive the fascists out of Manchester and strengthen the solidarities between local communities.

Central Manchester: 11am-5.00pm
