Statements issued by anarchist and libertarian communist organisations in Britain in response to this mornings bombings.

British and Irish anarchist statement on bombing

As social anarchists and libertarian communists, we deplore the horrific attacks on innocent people this morning in London. We express our deepest sympathy to anyone affected by the blasts. We condemn the use of violence against ordinary people and the perpetrators of the bombings whether they be Islamists or anyone else.

Terrorist actions are completely at odds with any struggle for a freer, fairer society and never help oppressed people in any part of the globe. Instead violence against civilians is a tool of states and proto-states every bit as brutal as the ones they profess to oppose.

The British Government, by sending British soldiers to kill and die in Iraq and Afghanistan has made all of us a target for terrorists in their pursuit of increased profit and power at the expense of ordinary working people.

We stand for a world in which human solidarity and co-operation replace the quest for profit as society's driving force, and stand in solidarity with all people fighting exploitation and oppression in all its forms, from opponents to the occupation of Iraq here, to those in Iraq who are opposing both the occupying forces and the ultra-reactionary Islamists the Occupation helps strengthen.

Our thoughts today are with the victims of this atrocity, and their loved ones.

Libcom.org statement on London bombings


As libertarian communists, we at libcom.org deplore the attacks on innocent people this morning in London. We express our deepest sympathy to anyone affected by the blasts. We condemn the use of violence against ordinary people and the perpetrators of the violence whether they be Islamists or anyone else. We believe their ideology and actions are at total odds with our aims and beliefs and will never help oppressed people in any part of the globe. Instead, terrorist attacks and violence used against civilians go hand in hand with the policies of the state at war and only help to further the strengthen capitalism and states around the world.

This Class War statement is hilarious. Hey Class War, maybe there were rich people on those tubes and on the tourist buses. Have you developed a barometer yet for measuring who's allowed to die in your "good" (ie. "class") war?

rich people are found in SUVs and in mansions and in luxury cars. rich people can also be found in areas highly protected.

You can get a used SUV for a couple grand. Those are the "rich" people you're advocating killing (?!) -- and as part of an anarchist politics?! Gimme a break!
Actually, it's not just your *poor judgment* of *who* "the rich" *actually are* that nauseats me. It's the "Kill Rich People" line altogether (put forth by Class War) because it's genocidal, and all anarchists should proudly oppose it, if not, they/we become apologists for authoritarianism and mass violence. Please leave that out of anarchism.

class enemies are not in their position because of identity, they are there because of actions - ongoing actions which they could stop at any time. but so long as they have not stopped, they are actively contributing to the oppression and exploitation of people around the world.

Yes, class is a structure, in which particular groups play roles within -- often different roles even within the same "class" (of which, venture capitalists play very different roles than inheritors -- who are both "rich people"). Not sure that it's so easy to be a class trader, to just drop out of a class. And if one can, does that make on revolutionary? I don't think so. The attempt to figure "who" is of the capitalist class is only a bad justification for groups like Class War to figure out who is a justifiable target of violence. THAT is NOT revolutionary action, unless one is a Stalinist.

Some 'leftists' (not anarchists) are always saying that the terrorist bombings in Irak or in other countries are the expression of anger from the oppressed people in these countries.
This position is not only wrong, it is also counter-revolutionary!

Have Organise and Just Books been cut off the list of signatures cos that would imply a rejection of republican teology? Organise has signed Irish and UK statements in the past and I would imagine continue to do so.

Thats a bit paranoid revol68 isn't it?

You can't really blame people for rushing off and posting something as this before the list was complete can you? Ask libcom how come it took so long to add the names of Organise! and Just Books to the list when an Organise! member suggested getting the statement endorsed and issued publicly by anarchist groups and organisations. But then I doubt there's a conspiracy there either mate.

Could the Britsh Anarchists bit be changed to British and Irish Anarchists in the title though? As the statement has been endorsed by both British and Irish Anarchists. Indymedia Ireland have already made this correction.

In solidarity;

About 250 people took part in the éirígí organised march on the banquet for the British Queen staged in Dublin castle Wedensday night. WSM members joined the demonstration but Garda had intercepted the person transporting our flags and banner to the protest leaving us somewhat invisible. This was part of a pattern of suppression of visible protest that occurred throughout the visit of the British Queen despite Garda claims that they would "facilitate protest" in advance of the visit [Italiano]

At 9:30 Saturday morning, people gathered on O'Connell Street In Dublin to protest against the presence of war criminal and ex British prime-minister Tony Blair. Blair arrived at Easons at around 10am for the book-signing of his recent autobiography, escorted and protected by a sizable gardai presence. Despite the heavy rain, hundreds of protestors took part.  At least one protester managed to get past the heavy security to try to make a citizens arrest of Blair for his war crimes. It is reported that Blair is now considering cancelling his London appearance.

It’s the time of year where we plebs get a chance to rectify our impertinence in rejecting the Lisbon Treaty. In itself, rerunning the referendum is hardly an affront to democracy. After all, people are simply being asked to confirm the decision made.

The WSM is calling for a No vote in the 2nd Lisbon referendum on the grounds that people in Ireland can do a lot better than a choice between the clowns in the Dáil or those in Brussels. We oppose the EU's policies of privatisation, militarisation and attacks on workers' conditions but don’t insult people’s intelligence by saying that our current society in Ireland with its severe recession, diabolical public services and corruption is anything better. The major lack of democracy in our lives is not between us and the EU but between the Irish government and us.

A photo-review of WSM activities in Munster cities during the Lisbon referendum campaign. The Cork WSM branch, with the help of other comrades from Limerick and Dublin, did 4 info stalls on the streets of Cork, Limerick and Waterford as part of our campaign activities. Each was blessed with good sunny weather and a public mood in some sympathy with our anarchist vote No message. We gave out thousands of leaflets, and made new contacts across the cities. It was also good to see what other campaigns were active on the ground across Munster.

The anti-war demonstration in Manchester on September 23rd (taking place the weekend before the Labour party annual conference) was supported by a colourful and vocal 'anarchist block' with attendance from anarchist organisations and non-aligned anarchists from Manchester and across the country, at least 40 bodies in all. The block was called by the Anarchist Federation and Solidarity Federation, two of the class struggle anarchist organisations in Britain with international links (read the jointly produced leaflet 'Why We Haven't Stopped the War Yet'). The day started with an IWW picket of Starbucks in support of union workers in the USA, followed by the anti-war march.

Just before the start of the war against Iraq in 2003 five Plougshares activists gained access to Shannon airport where US war planes were being refuelled. Using hammers and axes they damaged one of these planes. Loyal to George Bush the Irish government has been dragging these activists through the courts but late last month a jury ruled that the actions of the defendents were justifiable as they acted to preserve life in Iraq. These are reports and statements from the WSM on the trial.

imageA Brief Introduction to Modern Day Irish Republicanism. What Can Anarchists learn from Modern Day Re... Sep 29 by Joe Conlon 0 comments

Anarchists can learn a great deal from Republicanism, to make inroads to establishing our ideal in working class communities. We need to create a visible presence in all communities, we need to be seen to be believed. People are looking for answers and are falsely thinking it lies in Republicanism. Within Republicanism lies much of the same which lies in bourgeois society – that is hierarchy and privilege for the few. But I believe the secret to the salvation of society also lies within Republicanism. That is the revolutionary tradition of revolting against oppression, tyranny, and exploitation; which the working class, the oppressed and angry, gravitate towards. And likewise I think Republicans can learn a great deal from anarchism. Maybe from working together on community or workplace struggles we could both learn from each other.
