irlanda / gran bretagna / la sinistra / cronaca Monday December 13, 2010 16:43 by Gregor Kerr
Durante le proteste contro la finanziaria davanti a Dáil Éireann [camera dei deputati] il 7 dicembre 2010, Gregor Kerr ha pronunciato il seguente discorso a nome del Workers Solidarity Movement. Ricordando la necessità di contestare questa finanziaria, Kerr aggiunge che bisogna guardare oltre e sottolineare il fatto che il capitalismo in quanto modo di organizzare la società è moralmente e politicamente bancarotta. Se vogliamo assicurarci che questa crisi finanziaria, e la miseria economica che ha portato a milioni di lavoratori e lavoratrici in tutto il mondo, sia l'ultima allora occorre organizzarci, non per cambiare gli amministratori del capitalismo bensì per rovesciare il sistema capitalista e sostituirlo con un sistema che mette i bisogni dei molti al di sopra dell'avidità dei pochi. read full story / add a comment

Two articles from the WSM website looking at the bond crisis that is hitting the Irish economy and looks almost certain to result in EU intervention this week. The first article explains why bond prices matter and why rates have soared for Ireland. The second looks at the attempt by the Irish government to find someone else to blame. read full story / add a comment
ireland / britain / workplace struggles / opinion / analysis Tuesday September 21, 2010 20:10 by Gregor Kerr
Many trade union activists have known for years that “social partnership” comes at a huge price for union independence and the ability of trade unions to defend the interest of their members. The myth that government and employers on one side and workers on the other side have some form of common interest has been peddled for over twenty years. This has resulted in a trade union movement whose leadership seems incapable of independent thought and whose membership has been browbeaten into accepting pay cuts, ‘pension levies’ and various attacks on our working conditions and living standards over the past couple of years. read full story / add a comment
irlanda / gran bretagna / lotte sindacali / opinione / analisi Tuesday August 03, 2010 19:09 by Gregor Kerr
A metà giugno si è fatta la conta dei voti. Gli organismi dirigenti del sindacato dei Servizi Pubblici dell’Irish Trade Union Congress hanno accettato “l’accordo di Croke Park”. Il “partneriato sociale”, che si pensava morto e sepolto quando nel dicembre 2009 il governo aveva imposto unilateralmente il taglio agli stipendi nel pubblico impiego, sembra essere resuscitata a nuova vita. read full story / add a comment

This May sees the return of the annual Anarchist Bookfair to Dublin, our fifth Bookfair to take place in the city to date. Starting from humble beginnings in the St. Nicholas of Myra Hall in The Liberties five years ago, last years Bookfair was arguably the most successful to date. Over one thousand people passed through Liberty Hall during the day with ten different meetings and workshops held discussing a wide range of topics ranging from Palestine to Left Unity, Iran to Shell to Sea, Social Centres and beyond. read full story / add a comment

WSM member and UNITE activist Dermot Sreenan gives his initial opinion on the (Draft) Public Sector Agreement. "We must reject this deal and when we vote for rejecting this deal – we are going back to what we voted for back in October, Strike. If the leadership cannot allow, contemplate or enable us to do that – then we replace them. Our Unions are still ours. It is time to clean house – it is time to get back to injury to one is the concern of all." read full story / add a comment
ireland / britain / community struggles / news report Friday March 26, 2010 18:42 by WS114
The ruling class strategy of making working people pay for the crisis has seen public and private sector pay cuts, job losses, welfare reductions and slashing of important services like special needs assistants for children with physical and mental problems. Coming soon, if Cowan and Gormley have their way, is the return of a domestic water tax. About 100 people attended an anti-water charges forum called by Socialist MEP Joe Higgins in February. We discussed building opposition to this latest attempt by the wealthy to put their hands into our pockets. read full story / add a comment

ireland / britain / economy / news report Monday September 07, 2009 18:04 by Vincent O'Malley
The McCarthy or “Bord Snip Nua” report on public spending outlined a range of proposed cuts in government expenditure. Of the €5.3b in possible savings, it can be safely said that at least €4b of this (and probably more) targets the working class. Indeed, a full third of the cuts are aimed at pensioners and unemployed. In the private sector, attacks on our class continue in the form of pay cuts, short time and lay-offs. read full story / add a comment
