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, withoutturning our backs to society.
