Manchester Activism for Anarchists

Hi everyone, I'm a college student in town and hoping to get more involved in local activism - the issue is I don't really know how! I couldn't see a IWW or an ASN local for Manchester and have been told that the local SolFed group is pretty dead (not sure how truthful) so have hit a little bit of a brick wall. Would anyone mind giving me some pointers on getting more active, such as groups/campaigns to join?

Thanks.

Well, only yesterday you've just had the Manchester & Salford Anarchist Bookfair; I'm sure Manchester SolFed isn't dead and I know for certain that the AF is alive and kicking in Manchester.

I unfortunately couldn't make it to the bookfair, which is a shame as I wanted to see all the local groups and such!

Yeah, Manchester Solfed aren't dead. You can contact them via their website here (just change the category to Manchester SF) and presumably the same goes for AF here. I haven't a clue about the IWW tbh.

From my understanding there isn't a local IWW but i have heard that people maybe planning to set one up.
