The May Day picnic was a great success. There's a
report on Indymedia, with some nice pictures.

Mad Picnic for a Mad World Photos

There are some pictures from Mayday Manchester
Manchester belongs to us
Small boy, Big Hat
Making leaflet cones for free popcorn
Samba band
No football, no other games

It was a lovely day. Manchester Samba Band played for us. We gave
away free popcorn (wrapped in leaflets letting people know about the
selloff of Piccadilly gardens) and lots and lots of cake. People drew
pictures, wrote poems and lazed around in the sun.
We are going to have another Mad Picnic for a Mad World in
Piccadilly soon, and we are want to have more on other bits of
ripped off land as the summer goes on.

But thats not the way its got to be
People before property
We want a meeting place
And not a traffic jam
Let Mayday speak for all of us
Manchester belongs to us
No to their profits
And their Piccadilly plans

Stop ripping off Public Spaces

more photos:
Playing without permission is against the bylaws
knackered but its been a good day
People on the grass
People passing by
writing poems, drawing pictures
more people
and more people
and thats enough
"there’s definitely some feeling of loss somewhere in me, the
lack of free, uncommercial space that people can use to congregate
socially, creatively and politically in this city is absolutely deadening.
Every corner is an imposing tower of glass, some kind of monument
to obscene excess, leering over the passers by; people are dwarfed by
the things they build, scurrying past, scurrying on..."
