Well, I don't know how popular this community will be but it'll be worth a shot. At the very least it'll be a place to network and get some idea of what's going on around the Manchester activist scene.

To kick things off I'll start by posting about the forthcoming Anti-Overconsumption Month organised by Do Summat.
