Who We Are

We are the Manchester Group of the Anarchist Federation, an organisation of class struggle anarchists in England, Scotland, Wales and Ireland. There are other northern AF groups in Preston, Sheffield, Liverpool and Nottingham. We have members in other towns, including Barnsley, Gateshead, Halifax, Hull, Newcastle and York. By bringing together northern anarchist communists, we hope to be able to support each other and further the growth of our movement and spread of anarchist ideas.

What We Want

We aim to be part of the movement to abolish capitalism and all oppression and to create a free communist society.  This is anarchist communism. [more]
