Below is a message from our friends at Manchester No Borders.... I am especially glad that they are going on another tour; the last was by all acounts a great success but sadly clashed with lots of TRIP activities (entirely my cock up that one) so i hope lots of people take this opportunity to see a completley different world within our city. The LRM stands in solidarity with No Borders for many reasons; put simply racism is stupid and shit, everyone is valid, noone is illegal, compassion is good and freedom of movement, like loitering, is a basic human right. Incidentally, am I the only person who thinks those 'Manchester Welcomes the Labour Party Conference' posters are blatant incitement to criminal damage?
