This is what our current Manchester looks like in depressing words and numbers.
The wage gaps get wider every year, and we’re slowly destroying the planet.
This isn’t a system that is broken.
This is a system based on perpetual growth, working exactly as it’s supposed to.
We need to find a new system, for a new Manchester.
Okay, great, so what's the show?
