Manchester Space Invaders

We are everywhere…

For centuries, people have used squats and autonomous spaces, either urban or rural, to take control of their own lives.. For decades, squat movements across Europe and beyond have fought capitalist development, contributing to local struggles; providing alternatives to consumer culture; running social centres; demonstrating the possibilities for self-organising without hierarchy. These networks have changed many lives, providing free spaces where people can live outside the norm.

In April Manchester Space Invaders will continue this tradition..taking over the city, and creating autonomous spaces for all…

On Friday 11th there will be live music with bands performing in the evening, workshops, and an opportunity for people to get creative and get involved in plans for the weekend…

Saturday 12th will see autonomous groups from across the city working together to create…
-a fair in a park near the city centre during the day,
-a creative squatted space holding workshops and family friendly activities, including practical workshops.
-a demonstration and street party in the early evening in defence of autonomous spaces and freedom of movement.
-a squat party later in the evening….

We call for all groups, sound systems, individuals, artists, campaigns networks, individuals, performers, families, and anyone else besides to get involved and help us to reclaim the streets, the parks and the city…

Keep watching for full timetable and details…
