The exhibition will feature photographs by activists and photographers Andrew Flood, William Hederman, Aileen O’Carroll and Paul Reynolds and, according to organisers “documents an array of anti-capitalist, anti-war, pro-choice, environmental and other protests, starting with a mass trespass at Shannon Airport in October 2002 and ending with a Reclaim The Streets in Dublin in April 2012.”

“In the context of street protest, official history has often relied on images captured by photographers positioned behind police lines, or in some way mediating events from the perspective of authority. By contrast, the photographs in this exhibition record resistance from the viewpoint of the resister,” said one of the photographers, Andrew Flood

The Dublin Anarchist Bookfair will also feature a number of film showings including;

Bernadette: notes on a political journey – a remarkable documentary, made over a nine year period, which charts the story of Bernadette Devlin McAliskey’s political journey since her explosive entry into the public arena in the late sixties. This showing will be followed by a Q&A session with director Lelia Doolan
Eyewitness Afghanistan– an outline of the current political situation in Afghanistanas told through interviews Farah Mokhtareizadeh conducted with Afghan politicians, artists, religious leaders, community organizers, journalists and activists between December 2010 and February 2012.
The Viking Way– a documentary about Iceland’s 4 –year journey from economic disaster to signs of recovery

and a large number of meetings, debates and discussions.

Over 20 anarchist organisations, libertarian bookservices and community campaigns will host bookstalls and information stalls at the event.

textNew Labour's plans to teach kids "traditional" values May 18 by Anarcho 0 comments

You can always tell when a government is on its last legs: it starts going on about "traditional values." It makes sense though. A regime which has lost the respect of the people will complain that people no longer respect "traditional values" (i.e. authority). To suggest that there are uniform values for the 60 million inhabitants of a nation as diverse as Britain is as ridiculous as implying that these values set us apart from other people and nations

'The Rocky Road to Dublin' was released in 1968 but because of its content never got significant release in Ireland. It has been restored and is showing at the IFI (an 'art cinema' in Dublin. This is a personal opinion of how shocking the picture of 1960's Dublin society it portrays is.
