I don't see any reason calling something a "manifesto" would affect its status under copyright law.

However, since (I would have thought) manifestos are generally things that the authors want to see as widely distributed as possible, there might exist statements in or accompanying them which permit free reproduction.

I had a wee look, manifestos fall under the same copyright law as other material (it's life +70 years, not 30 years). However, it is possible to use material, either by buying the copyright, or getting a license. Licenses do not (and usually are not) have to be in writing form, they can be just implied, like when an author sends an article to a magazine, for instance.
If a manifesto is published on the web, there is often a copyright note, explaining the conditions of using the text...
