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

Sicko is the name of the new Michael Moore film exposing the US health service for what it is – a profit hungry machine that puts money first and people second. In the good ol’ US of A, if you don’t pay when you get sick then it’s tough luck. read full story / add a comment

Most people will be aware that Irish troops are being sent to Africa as part of an EU 'peace-keeping' mission to Chad and Central African Republic (CAR), but many will be relatively unaware of the background to the conflict and the reasons for the mission. This article looks at some of the realities behind the rhetoric and suggests some more plausible motivations for the intervention. read full story / add a comment

Roughly 300 people turned up to the launch of the 'Campaign for a Decent Public Health Service' on the evening of the 11th February in Liberty Hall. The public meeting was organised by the Dublin Council of Trade Unions and the campaign hopes to bring together health workers and their trade unions, patient groups, hospital campaigners, the trade union movement in general and the general public to demand a civilised health service. 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

When Irish Ferries launched their new €50million vessel in Dublin Port on Tuesday 29th January, 400 guests from the tourism, freight and shipping sectors attended the naming ceremony. How many of them, I wonder, took a moment as they quaffed their champagne and nibbled on their canapés to ponder on the news revealed by International Transport Workers Federation inspector, Ken Fleming, that the workers who would be manning the ferry will be paid as little as €4 per hour? read full story / add a comment
ireland / britain / workplace struggles / interview Tuesday February 05, 2008 08:38 by Sean Matthews
Below is an interview with a member of the TGWU who is attempting to organise a union in a leading Irish Sports Shop in Belfast. It describes the problems facing workers in the retail sector who are exploited by their employers and start organising themselves in their own work-place to improve their conditions. These problems are even more acute when there is no history of unionisation in the workplace and a limited awareness of people's rights as workers.
Due to potential libel action and its consequences for the union we are unable to print the company’s name. 'An Ireland of equals' what rubbish! read full story / add a comment

In Ireland we like to think that we’ve long ago abolished the death penalty; that we’ve progressed beyond such primitive practices, that we’re too civilized for that. But Irish people are still being sentenced to death, and not even for crimes they have committed but for the crimes of our murderous health system. read full story / add a comment

Voor de eerste keer in hun geschiedenis zit de Ierse Groene partij in de regering. Het akkoord dat ze met Fianna Fail hebben gesloten is door velen bekritiseerd als een “uitverkoop”, en met enige reden, omdat de Groenen van standpunt zijn veranderd over de kwestie van het gebruik van de luchthaven van Shannon door het leger van de VS, het conflict tussen Shell en de inwoners van Rossport en het besluit om de M3 snelweg aan te leggen door lucratieve stukken land van Fianna Fail aanhangers, die in de buurt van Tara wonen. Over deze en andere kwesties veranderden de Groenen van de ene dag op de andere dag van de positie van oppositie naar banen in een regering die de plannen uitvoert – met geweld als dit nodig is. read full story / add a comment
While Martin McGuiness was flying off to ‘sell’ the North to American investors with promises of low corporation tax, we are in the midst of wee bit of class war with classroom assistants and posties taking action to defend their interests against ‘the new era’ of the bosses. read full story / add a comment
