Manifesto is a sequence of haikuesque poems. It is aimed as a counter-blast at the political and financial institutions complicit in the deception of the masses, working people exhorted to fund a debt economy, and by that heavy price remain obedient citizens. As a narrative it charts, in its own fragmented way, a programme of resistance drawn up by a group of cyberspace guerrillas, whose agenda is the reversal of institutional propaganda put out as a daily drip-feed by press and television.
