The Anarchist Federation is a growing organisation of like-minded people from across the British Isles who aim to abolish capitalism and all oppression to create a free and equal world, without leaders and bosses, and without wars or environmental destruction.
Autonomedia is an autonomous zone for arts radicals in both old and new media. We publish books on radical media, politics and the arts that seek to transcend party lines, bottom lines and straight lines.
Corporations have gained a power out of all proportion to their original purpose. We are a research group supporting the campaigns which are increasingly successful in forcing corporations to back down. Corporate Watch is part of the growing anti-corporate movement springing up around the world.*
The Cunningham Amendment
Leeds Surrealist Group
*Manchester Animal Protection*
Fighting animal abuse in the North West.
*May Day Politics and Books
The critical innovative magazine for independent & autonomous working class history & politics; economics, philosophy, sociology, globalisation, labour movement, labour process and more.
*Northern Anarchists Network (NAN) *
A forum for anarchist affinity groups, individual anarchists and libertarian membership organisations in the North.
*Northern Herald Books
*Secondhand bookstall with a specialism in anarchism and libertarian socialism.
A regional journal, published by a NAN affinity group, that aims at challenging the establishment in an interesting way that appeals to a popular local readership.
Olive Co-operative seeks to raise awareness of the difficulties faced by Palestinians, and to support those working for a just peace in Palestine and Israel.
*Shift magazine *
The idea is to create a space for the exchange of radical ideas and strategies, though always with reference or direct relevance to organisation and ‘activism’. But we also want to make a political intervention into activist theory and practice. We take for granted that Shift readers are looking for debate on a non-state, non-capitalist ‘way out’. Yet, we will challenge all answers, as ‘radical’ as they may be, that will increase social control or that demand a movement for austerity.
We are residents of Brighton who marched against the war. We were sickened to learn that a company in our home town was not only profiting from, but making possible the illegal and immoral slaughter in Iraq. Smash EDO is a grassroots response to EDO’s complicity in murderous crimes – a banner under which people opposed to those crimes can rally.
Solidarity Federation is a federation of groups and individuals across England, Scotland & Wales. Everyone involved is helping to build a non-hierarchical, anti-authoritarian solidarity movement.
Offers a wide variety of literature and other media from a large number of sources that covers anarchist, anti-bolshevik, autonomist, council communist and situationist thought.
New and second hand books and pamphlets that also covers anthropology, history, culture and sex to name just a few subjects. Also carries some music and music related titles along with films and documentaries that would be of interest to people interested in questioning the status quo.
Brimar is a Manchester based company that manufactures a range of screens and viewing equipment. These can, of course, be used for a whole range of purposes, but Brimar has over the years come to specialise in producing them for military uses. We are a group of citizens from Manchester and Greater Manchester. We believe that Brimar’s products have been, and may still be, used to commit war crimes in various conflicts in the Middlle East and elsewhere.
