One day every few years in Britain, there isn’t really any government. In 
the twilight
zone when no “elected representatives" are in charge, Manchester will be 
home to
a daylong festival of anti-government and anti-corporate frivolity, 
celebrating music,
theatre, autonomous direct action, free food, art, gardening, lying around 
and a
'state funeral'.  This day will focus on the good things in life (culture, 
.) and
sadly the bad too (corporate colonialism

Rather than following the pattern of recent bigger demos, where a lot of 
around and inevitable confrontation occurs, it will be fluid, autonomous 
and serious
whilst silly and colourful. It will serve as an experiment in new ways to 
really have
an effect.

Fight Centralism!

Why wait for the next big national demo in London? Manchester, the oh so proud
hosts of the forthcoming Commonwealth Games, will play host to the nation’s
most radical and creative cooks, graffiti artists, gardeners, cyclists, street

Get with it!

Pass on this idea now! Using the existing networks of activists, friends and
contacts, this day could be a real success. Although some rather super 
events are
already being planned, YOU need to get on the case and start thinking how you
can contribute and spread the message, persuading others to come from all
over. Not just activists, but also politically-minded entertainers and 
everyone and
anyone who could make this day beautiful, funny, and purposeful chaos.


Festival circuit types, dancers, solutions/sustainability/installments,
community arts groups, theatre groups, climbers, silly people, bands and
musicians who move or don’t move, kids stuff, workshops, stalls, gardening,
colourful murals


Subvertising, surreal and humorous office occupations, Trojan rabbits, a
critical mass in fancy dress, getting in the way, gardening (again)

No Band Wagons, Unwanted Bedfellows and Muddying of the Waters!

Needless to say, the Socialist Alliance SWP, Green Party and other political
faiths that are busy canvassing for votes on election day are not going to
participate in an event that asks you to abandon the spectator sport we 
know as
'representative electoral politics' in favour of participating in direct 
action and
nurturing meaningful forms of democracy.

Not enough time?

Adventurous shit is already being planned. The rest is up to you. Some 
money is
available. Accommodation can be sorted for a few hundred. There will be 
and the chance to meet up with old friends and loved ones. It will be the 
time of
your life brothers and sisters. Please organise and network now. More info 
is on its
way. See you here.
