Delusional? May be!

Anarchist Writers - Sat, 04/08/2017 - 04:54

Article 50 – or as some hope, Article 1950 or, for the most optimistic, Article 1850 – has finally been invoked. Few would have believed in April 2016 that a mere year later elements of the Tory party would be threatening war with Spain – or that a party whose incompetency on so many levels (not least, economic) would be doing so well in the polls. But then, under Cameron the Tories realised they can talk centre ground – even leftish – but track even further to the right.

Ireland's Richest 300 Doubled Wealth in the Crisis (300 of Us on €30k Would Take 11,000 Years to Make the Same)

Workers Solidarity Movement (Ireland) - Thu, 04/06/2017 - 08:35

Welcome to the land of saints and hoarders. The richest 300 people in Ireland have doubled their wealth from €50Bn to €100Bn in the last 7 years. That means the number of people who’d fit in a large pub have enough money to have paid the original bank bailout of €64Bn outright (and still be so rich they wouldn’t have to work a day).

March this Saturday - The water charges were not defeated at any Oireachtas committee

Workers Solidarity Movement (Ireland) - Thu, 04/06/2017 - 06:53

This Saturday at 2pm, Right2Water has called a national anti-water charges protest through Dublin city starting at Connolly and Heuston Station.  Many are seeing this as the final shot of the long war against the water charges, they have been suspended for the last year because a mass boycott made them impossible to collect.  

That boycott was part of a massive decentralised campaign that also saw hundreds of direct actions as communites around the country blocked water meter installations, leading to hundreds of arrests and dozens of ongoing prosecutions.  And Saturday is just one of many huge mobilisations that have brought as many as 80,000 onto the streets on multiple occasions.

Anarkismo - Thu, 04/06/2017 - 06:40
I CIE, luoghi dove si violano sistematicamente i diritti umani, dove si alimenta il racket degli appalti.
E’ necessaria la mobilitazione delle tante associazioni che operano nel campo dei diritti dei migranti, delle organizzazioni sindacali e di tutta l’opposizione sociale e politica a leggi discriminatorie e repressive come queste per arginare una pericolosa sottrazione di diritti insieme ad una repressione per via amministrativa finalizzata alla distruzione delle libertà e delle garanzie ancora vigenti.

March on April 8th to Abolish water charges - WSM newsletter for the day - Many Battles Won, With the War Yet to Win

Workers Solidarity Movement (Ireland) - Thu, 04/06/2017 - 06:13

The Workers Solidarity Movement have called an anarchist/anti-authoritarian bloc to join the Water Charges march Saturday 8th April in Dublin. This bloc will meet at Connolly Station at 2pm . Look out for the red and black flags.   We will be handing out several hundred copies of this 4-page leaflet produced by the WSM, which includes content on the water charges, housing, and the pro-choice struggle, and are looking for folks to help us distribute these on the day. [PDF to download]

 

Many Battles Won, With the War Yet to Win

We’ve come a long way. Against the forces of the State and global finance the anti-water charges movement has held the line, and through years of direct action, community organising and mass mobilisations we’ve pushed the government to the point of defeat on water charges.

Housing is also an anti-finance, anti-capitalist struggle - Fine Gael Inc

Workers Solidarity Movement (Ireland) - Thu, 04/06/2017 - 06:07

What would happen if Fine Gael had a change of heart? What if, having been visited by three ghosts the night before, Michael Noonan decided to address the misery brought on by the largest housing crisis in this nation’s history? It’s an interesting question, but of course it’ll never be answered. Still, thinking about it forces us to consider other questions. It leads us to a view of modern capitalism and international power relations which, if more unsettling than Scrooge Fine Gael, is a more solid understanding on which to build our offensive.

A look back at the resistance to unconventional drilling at Woodburn forest

Workers Solidarity Movement (Ireland) - Wed, 04/05/2017 - 11:36

This is an analysis of events at Woodburn forest (Carrickfergus, County Antrim) during the exploratory drilling operation being carried out by the company Infrastrata in the spring and summer of 2016. It is intended as a reflection on the successes and failures of the campaign to resist a poisonous and violent extraction of resources from the land, and indeed the lease and seizure of some of that land in an aggressive manner. It draws on personal testimonies; both my own and other activists’ experiences of specific direct actions, set within a broader political analysis of the context within which this sort of struggle is taking place, locally and worldwide.
