    Hi Roscoe Occupation,
    I’m a human geography lecturer at Manchester Met, I have a lecture on historian, urban theorist and novelist, Mike Davis, called “Fortress Cities and Dreamworlds of Neoliberalism” that I would like to share with you. Please let me know if there is the interest and the time for me to come down.

    In Solidarity,
    Suzy Fitzpatrick

  2. The video clip is from Winstanley, a wonderful film by Kevin Brownlow about the Diggers of 1649. Leon Rosselson’s song The World Turned Upside Down celebrates them and can be found on Youtube at

    I have written a number of articles about Manchester’s radical history which can be found at and would be pleased to speak at any other events at the occupation that might be organised
