From PW/Doc/INPUT_PW.txt : 
"If you want to start from an antiferromagnetic state, you may need to define two different atomic species corresponding to sublattices of the same atomic type."

So, you need to build a supercell, where two atomic species, Mn1 and Mn2, corresponding to the SAME pseudo potential are present. Of course ntyp increases by 1.

The starting_magnetization values for the two species must have opposite sign.
