Who do the gardai really work for?
A consortium of Shell, Statoil, and Marathon do a deal with the government allowing them exclusive exploitation rights to the Corrib gas field, off Mayo. Not only that, but they are allowed to write off their costs against taxes, meaning that the whole project is being funded by the PAYE taxpayer, who will receive nothing, not even lower gas prices. It may sound a bit iffy but there is no garda investigation into possible bribery or corruption.

Rossport: In Defiance of the State
The month of October saw the community of Rossport occupied by the Gardai Siochana. This occupation is the State response to a community trying to protect themselves against Shell: a multinational with a track record for maltreating communities which they operate in.

Anarchism and the WSM
Some of the activities the WSM has got up to in recent months

Big gains for contract workers in UCD
Like many other employers UCD has sought to save money in the last couple of decades by refusing to create permanent pensionable posts. Instead, a growing percentage of the workforce have been left on short-term contracts without any pension rights.

The Role of an Anarchist Organisation
Looking around the world today it can be difficult to imagine how the society that we want to see can be created. But rather than sitting back and waiting for capitalism to collapse, or for the revolution to come, we believe in organising in the here and now.

On the road with an Irish pirate
While it can be hard to come across political documents that inspire, entertain and amuse, Ramor Ryan‘s Clandestines succeeds in doing just that.

The WSM had its Autumn national conference in Dublin on the 23rd November.  National Conference is the ultimate decision making body in the WSM. It happens every six months usually over a day or two. As well as discussing motions time is also spent on discussing the past six months activity and prospects for the next period. Conference also hears reports of activity from all branches, officers and working groups.  This covered areas like the Irish Anarchist Review, WSM Website, Dublin Anarchist Bookfair and our pro-choice and anti racist work.

textWolnosc: Rozmyślania na temat anarchizmu Feb 27 by Oisin Mac Giollamoir 0 comments

Mówi się o dwóch typach wolności- pozytywnej i negatywnej lub uogólniając, o istnieniu wolność od.. do. Uważam tą dychotomie za nieprawdziwa i mało znacząca. Wolność nie jest słowem opisującym dwojakość, wolność odnosi się tylko do jednego stanu rzeczy.

textRola organizacji anarchistycznej Feb 26 by John Flood 0 comments

Patrząc na dzisiejszy świat trudno jest sobie wyobrazic jak miało by powstać społeczeństwo które chcielibyśmy zobaczyć. Ale zamiast siedzieć z założonymi rękami czekając na upadek kapitalizmu albo nadejście rewolucji, wierzymy w organizowanie sie tu i teraz.

textIs there a need for a new Glasgow /Scotland-wide Anarchist Group? Dec 17 by Dundee United 0 comments

Dublin has an influential anarchist group, the Workers Solidarity Movement. It co-ordinates involvement in local campaigns ('especifismo' social insertion) and distribute a free quarterly news-sheet of 6000+ copies. Glasgow lacks this, but is not lacking in serious community struggles or a need for closer and more structured involvement of anarchists and other socialists in those struggles.

textThe end of the British anarchist magazine Black Flag? Nov 23 by Anarcho 6 comments

Observant attendees of this year's anarchist bookfair may have noticed that Black Flag did not have a stall nor was a new issue out. Some speculation has been made on the libcom.org forums that it is no more. The truth is, perhaps. It depends on what happens next and whether people get involved.

textWhere to Now? Anti-capitalist protest - global and local Jun 24 by Gregor Kerr 0 comments

Debate on the effectiveness of the Black Bloc tactic could well go on forever. It is certainly hard to avoid the conclusion that anti-globalisation protests that avoid direct action will kill off the movement, or at least greatly reduce participation in it.
