Strawberry Snapshot, a free directory of campaigning groups in #Manchester – free to download now. Online launch tonight

Here it is!  CEM’s “Strawberry Snapshot #01”.  It’s a first attempt at producing a guide to campaigning groups (and other useful groups!) in Manchester.

You can download, free, it as a beautiful document (44Mb) or as a fugly plain text thing.

There’s loads of groups’ details in there, from Aytoun Barks Back to Wythenshawe Waste Warriors. There’s an index of skills offered and skills needed. There’s provisional answers to questions like “what’s the difference between a network and a movement?” and “what is movement-building.”

Is it perfect or complete? Of course it isn’t. Have we accidentally not included folks who submitted their details? Possibly – oops. If we did, let us know. Did various groups not reply to repeated emails and DMs? Yup. So it goes. The next version (January 2022) will be bigger, better.

Meanwhile, tonight (Monday 12th July), at 7.30pm, there’s a short launch event. If you want the log in details, email us on
