Hand Job Zine
We are a DIY literary zine that collects writing and illustration from around the UK, trying to give a voice to many people with opinions and beliefs that are shunned or undervalued by a lot of the mainstream literary journals and magazines. We present it as an anarchist zine, but as long as people have an interesting idea we will put it in there.
There has been a growing need for a radical community hub in the years since Manchester’s last social centre, The Basement, was closed due to flooding. Manchester Social Centre aims to fill this void by reclaiming space and services within the city and turning it into a ‘corporate free’ sanctuary for the community. We want to create a space for local activity and interaction, enabling groups to hold meetings and events at low cost, for members to share resources, develop and form links with other groups, and providing an accessible means for the people of Manchester to unite and share in positive radicalism.
News From Nowhere
39-year old Radical and Community Bookshop based in Liverpool. All subjects covered in a subversive way. A workers’ co-operative run by a women’s collective – shop with the real Amazons!
STRIKE! is a radical, quarterly newspaper – we deal in politics, philosophy, art, subversion and sedition. Each issue we gather together a group of high-grade artists and authors, give them a theme, and let them get creative with it. It’s a magazine, it’s a journal, it’s a carnival.
