On 12th June, the Irish sent the media and the boss class into despair when 54% of Irish voters said "No" to the Lisbon Treaty, a re-working of the European Constitution. Libertarian communists mobilized in order to tinge this rejection with a social and anti-capitalist hue. [ Français] read full story / add a comment

With a large number of conflicting interpretations of the treaty in circulation before the vote, many voters’ voting decisions depended on whom they trusted the most. When it came down to it, the side that was represented by politicians and IBEC was always going to be in trouble. In the end, the loyalty test split the electorate on class lines. read full story / add a comment

Irish citizens voted against the EU Nice treaty in June 2001 briefly throwing a spanner into the works of the neoliberal EU agenda. The response was to force a second vote accompanied by a lot of scare mongering the following year. Shortly before the second referendum the pro-neoliberal media 'revealed' that the leader of the right wing anti-treaty campaign had been present at far right meetings in Germany, something that helped scare people into voting for the treaty second time around. Once more Irish citizens are voting on an EU treaty. This time around some months before the vote WSM member Chekov Feeny published this expose of the strange connections of another right wing anti-treaty group, an article that illustrates the inter imperialist rivalry between the supposed USA and EU 'allies'.. In part to seperate the anarchist 'No' campaign from the right but also to pre-empt a repeat of Nice 2 with such last minute 'revelations' being used to attack the no campaign in general. read full story / add a comment

Journalist and former Black Panther, Mumia Abu-Jamal, still faces execution by the US state. Last month the Appeal Court in Philadelphia ruled against a new trial. Thee will now be a new sentencing hearing, which will result in either execution or life in prison without parole.
This man has been on death row since 1982. It is widely believed that he was railroaded to jail because of his radical views and personal history. Among those who have taken up his case are: The National Union of Journalists, the Graphical, Paper & Media Union, International Organisation of Journalists, Nelson Mandela, Salman Rushdie, Rage Against the Machine, Christy Moore, Whoopi Goldberg, Proinsias DeRossa MEP, Joe Higgins (Socialist Party), the Workers Solidarity Movement and the Connolly Youth Movement. read full story / add a comment

For many years the experience of the Anarchist Workers Group in Britain was used to smear ‘platformists’ as some sort of authoritarian tapeworm within the body of anarchism. It was claimed that our politics leads people out of anarchism and into Leninism.

The emergence of the Anarchist Workers Group at the start of the 1990's was something the WSM welcomed. Most of the people involved initially came from the South London branch of the Direct Action Movement. At least one founder member of the ACF was also involved. They also had branches in the North of England with people from Manchester, Huddersfield and Liverpool. read full story / add a comment

Christmas has increasingly become a matter of spending money on presents, rather than spending time with your loved ones. Where this might be hard for some, it can be financially unbearable for others. In order to meet the expectations from the society and avoid humiliation, we take up loans to get through family events such as Christmas. read full story / add a comment

Our solidarity today (11/02) to the LUAS workers striking for decent pay rates. The crisis was used by the government and capitalist class to drive down wages and ensure that a bigger share of profits went to shareholders. The LUAS fight is a fight for all of us as a victory should be a green light to all workers to demand pay rises, including the recovery of the money lost in the cuts imposed under the crisis. Across the world the share of income that goes to the richest 1% has soared while that going tooth rest of us has been slashed, we need to fight to reverse this.

Friday June 12ths shock closure of the iconic Clery’s department store in Dublin shows how the law is set up to favour capital and screw workers. Workers are being told there may be no additional redundancy or owed holiday payments as the company is in debt. But this is only the case because right before the closure the largest asset, the building itself, was separated off from the accumulated debts. This was almost certainly legal under our system but of such obvious dubious morality that the workers could expect massive popular support if they occupied the building on a permanent ongoing basis.

imageUn siglo del asesinato de Roger Casement, precursor de la solidaridad internacionalista Aug 04 by José Antonio Gutiérrez D. 0 comments

El 3 de Agosto de 1916, en la prisión de Pentonville, Londres, el revolucionario y humanista, nacionalista e internacionalista, irlandés Roger Casement era ahorcado por cargos de traición a la Corona británica. Su muerte fue la última de las ejecuciones de los líderes del republicanismo irlandés acusados de haber participado en la insurrección irlandesa de ese año. Cien años después, su ejemplo de vida sigue siendo una inspiración para quienes practican la solidaridad internacionalista en todo el mundo y para quienes buscan alterar las estructuras del poder en un mundo en el cual se ha convertido a la fuerza bruta en la nueva racionalidad de la época.
