  • The Murder Machine
    Thousands of US soldiers desert rather than fight or die for Bush in Iraq
  • Postal Workers Under Fire
    Interview: An Post and the Threat of Privatisation I hope things will come around and that at the end of the day we will manage to save An Post from privatisation. You don't want to think the opposite, because it is your job. But the truth is that all the signs, everything is pointing the other way around.
  • The great Housing rip off
    Whether we pay rent or a mortgage, the cost of keeping a roof over our heads takes up a huge proportion of our income - those of us who are 'lucky' enough to be in a position to do so. Everywhere we look - both in Dublin and other cities and also in small rural villages and towns - the skyline is dotted with cranes and houses and apartments seem to be springing up everywhere.
  • The Iraqi 'Resistance'
    A Closer Look at the Forces Fighting the US in Iraq. It is clear that there is no single 'resistance' in Iraq but rather a network of organizations often with conflicting end goals once you look beyond the question of removing the US presence.
  • International Women's Day
    International Women's Day (IWD) is on 8th March and is an inherently political event that started in 1910 when Clara Zetkin proposed that it be celebrated every year around the world at the Second International Conference of Socialist Women.
  • Book Review: Peter Kropotkin's Masterpiece 'The Conquest of Bread'
    The first thing that really strikes you about the book is the simplicity of the arguments: the author describes clearly the basis of anarchist communism, without resorting to obscurities which, usually, veil one's lack of arguments.
  • Water Tax
    They want to take more money away from us. The British government plans to impose a water charge averaging £340 a year in Northern Ireland. That's for 2006, and we can be sure it will rise every year.
  • Red Ink Bookshop
    Review of the new Radical Bookshop in Dublin's Temple Bar
  • Cork City: Culture of Capital
    A group of artists in Cork, aware of the lack of affordable work space, took over an empty building in the centre of Cork at the beginning of February.
  • Liberty
    It is often said that there are two types of liberty, positive liberty and negative liberty, or, roughly, 'freedom to...' and 'freedom from...' This, I believe, is a false and meaningless dichotomy
  • Internet Review: Dissent Network Against the G8
    The Dissent! Network was formed to provide a networking tool to co-ordinate radical resistance to the upcoming G8 (the 7 richest countries in the world plus Russia) Summit in Scotland. The network was founded in the autumn of 2003
  • Getting organised for a brighter future
    We are social creatures. We cannot do many things on our own, we flock together, and in most cases we solve our problems together.
  • That's Capitalism
    Bank Robbers and Robbing Bankers - Brazen Wolves, Obedient Sheep
