Across the country cities are being sold to the highest bidders. The drive
for ‘regeneration’ is demolishing homes, marginalising
communities, privatising public space and closing down vital community
services. There has seldom been a time when fighting for autonomous spaces
in Manchester has been more important.
The struggle for self-organisation and social autonomy brings migrants and
squatters into inevitable confrontation with the existing social and
political system. Self-organisation does not mean living outside of
society. We want to live in it but according to our own rules. We want to
emancipate ourselves from the capitalist processes that govern our city
and our lives, without turning our backs to society.
