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] read full story / add a comment

“Dame tu nombre y dirección o te violamos” - Las palabras de un sargento de Garda, como él discutió con al menos otros dos Gardai cómo iban a interrogar a una de las dos mujeres Shell para los activistas del mar que habían arrestado y que estaban siendo llevados a la estación de Belmullet Garda. Sólo segundos antes, mientras que estaban discutiendo la forma de interrogar a las mujeres una Garda sugirió que la amenazan con la deportación. El sargento responde con la adición de la amenaza de violación que se repite antes de que otro hasta ahora no identificados Garda interviene con "manténgalo en esa posición, dame tu nombre y dirección en él, te violación " llevó al sargento a repetir que una vez más como "O que definitivamente voy a la violación."

Give me your name and address or I’ll rape you - the words of a Garda Sgt as he discussed with at least two other Gardai how they were going to interrogate one of two female Shell to Sea campaigners they had arrested and who were being brought to Belmullet Garda station. Just second earlier while they were discussing how to interrogate the women one Garda suggested they threaten her with deportation. The Sgt responds with the addition of the rape threat which he repeats before another so far unidentified Garda chimes in with “hold it there, give me your name and address there, I’ll rape you” prompting the Sgt to repeat it one last time as “or I’ll definitely rape you.” [Listen to the 2 minute audio] read full story / add a comment

ireland / britain / community struggles / news report Tuesday March 29, 2011 21:29 by Andrew   image 1 image
Last week as Shell prepares to start construction on the final leg of their controversial Corrib gas pipeline & refinery they have faced multiple set backs. In Erris Shell were prevented accessing construction sites by a blockade of protesters on a number of days while in Dublin Shell were forced to pull out of a conference at the RDS. On top of this 22 TD's gathered under a Shell to Sea banner at the Dail demanding that the consents signed by the outgoing Fianna Fail minister on his last day in power be reversed. This public show of support for Shell to Sea by so many elected representatives is a demonstration of how strongly the public have turned against the project and the Great Oil & Gas Giveaway in general. Despite this it is now the Labour Party Minister Pat Rabbitte who is forcing the project through, who this week has refused to reverse the consents. (Photo C.

In October 2010, the Irish website Count Me Out, which had until then supplied the forms needed to carry out formal Defection from the Roman Catholic Church, suspended distribution of the forms and its own activity as a result of a statement from the Catholic Church in Ireland regarding the acceptance of defection requests. But was the Archdiocese of Dublin being truthful when it issued its statement? Italian anti-clericalist activist Francesca Palazzi Arduini examines the changes in which led to the Church's statement. read full story / add a comment

The attack on workers at the Davenport Hotel in Dublin had highlighted the greed and bullying in the hotel business. A similar case to that at the Davenport has come to light here in Cork. But so far fear has ruled the day. The Clarion describes itself as one of “Cork’s premier 4 Star City Centre Hotels”. Although it’s well able to charge for its rooms it cannot find its way to granting its workers a 29 cents per hour pay rise. read full story / add a comment

ireland / britain / gender / opinion / analysis Tuesday December 21, 2010 23:56 by Andrew   image 1 image
Last Thursday the European Court of Human Rights found that the Irish government had violated the rights of a woman living in Ireland who was forced to travel to Britain for an abortion. Abortion continues to be unavailable in Ireland and the court ruling was based on the failure of Irish governments to legislate for abortion under the 'X case' an infamous case from 1992 when a 14 year old rape victim X was prevented leaving the country to get an abortion in England. The WSM was centrally involved in the mobilizations that forced the courts to back down and allow X to travel and has continued to be involved in the pro-choice movement since that time. Below is the coverage we provided on Thursday on WSM.IE as the ABC result was revealed. read full story / add a comment

Την Τρίτη 7 Δεκεμβρίου, η ιρλανδική κυβέρνηση οχυρώθηκε στο κοινοβούλιο στο Δουβλίνο, βρισκόμενη εκεί για να ψηφίσει τον προϋπολογισμό με τον οποίο θα εφαρμόζονταν οι περικοπές και τα μέτρα λιτότητας που απαιτούνται από το ΔΝΤ και την Ευρωπαϊκή Κεντρική Τράπεζα (ΕΚΤ). Ο προϋπολογισμός αυτός έρχεται σε μια περίοδο περαιτέρω εμβάθυνσης της κρίσης, καθώς το χρέος της κάποτε ταχύτερα αναπτυσσόμενης οικονομίας της Ευρώπης βρίσκεται πλέον εκτός ελέγχου. Η προφανής ερώτηση με την οποία έρχεται κάποιος αντιμέτωπος είναι “Τι πήγε στραβά; Τι συνέβη σε αυτό το οικονομικό θαύμα;” read full story / add a comment

Martedì 7 dicembre, il governo irlandese si è barricato nel parlamento per votare la legge finanziaria che contiene i tagli e le misure di austerità richieste dal FMI e dalla BCE. La finanziaria giunge alla fine di un anno di crisi profonda, dopo che è andata fuori controllo la spirale del debito di quello che era il paese europeo dalla crescita economica più veloce. L'ovvia domanda che ci si pone è "Cosa è andato storto? Cosa è successo al miracolo economico irlandese?" [English] read full story / add a comment

On Tuesday the 7th of December, the Irish government were barricaded inside the parliament in Dublin. They were there to vote on a Budget implementing the cutbacks and austerity measures demanded of them by the IMF and ECB. The budget comes in a year of ever deepening crisis, as the debt of what was once Europe's fastest growing economy, spiralled out of control. The obvious question one is faced with is “What went wrong? What happened to this economic miracle?” [Italiano] read full story / add a comment

The WSM had its Autumn national conference in Dublin on the 23rd November.  National Conference is the ultimate decision making body in the WSM. It happens every six months usually over a day or two. As well as discussing motions time is also spent on discussing the past six months activity and prospects for the next period. Conference also hears reports of activity from all branches, officers and working groups.  This covered areas like the Irish Anarchist Review, WSM Website, Dublin Anarchist Bookfair and our pro-choice and anti racist work.

irelandmaptourposter.jpg imageLessons from the Mass Student strike in Quebec - Ireland tour September 2013 22:12 Mon 16 Sep by andrew 1 comments

In 2012 the attempt by the government to Quebec to introduce a 75% fee hike was defeated by the organisation of a mass student strike that lasted over 6 months. That fee increase was part of the global process of imposing the privatisation and commodification of education. Since the victory, organisers of the strike have been being doing speaking tours to aid the process whereby "youth and students everywhere are becoming increasingly conscious of the need to organize as a means to defend education as a social right". In September this tour reaches Ireland where we need to hear how a sustained and militant student movement that can win is built.

Dopo 18 mesi di investigazioni, la commissione governativa - presieduta dal senatore Martin McAleese - nominata dal governo per stabilire i fatti riguardanti il coinvolgimento dello Stato irlandese nelle lavanderie Magdalen ha pubblicato la sua relazione finale (1). Il documento non ha disatteso le aspettative e stabilisce infatti che lo Stato era coinvolto direttamente nel sistema gestito dalle Case Magdalen, a gestione di ordini di suore cattoliche.

Lui vota "a favore della vita" imageIrlanda: In pochi alla "Veglia per la Vita", nonostante i tanti soldi spesi 22:06 Wed 23 Jan by andrew 0 comments

Sabato a Dublino ha visto un altro disperato tentativo da parte della coalizione "anti-scelta" [ossia contro la scelta della donna di decidere - ndt.] di evitare che il Dáil (la Camera irlandese) introduca legislazione che permetterebbe l'aborto in casi in cui la vita della donna è in pericolo. Nonostante mesi di preparazione, comportando una spesa che deve essere stato vicino a un milione di euro, e nonostante che i parroci, durante la messa in ogni parocchia, abbiano reso obbligatorio la partecipazione a tutti i cattolici, meno di 15.000 si sono presentati alla manifestazione. Rispetto alle 150.000 donne che hanno dovuto viaggiare per ottenere aborti negli ultimi decenni, ciò equivale a quasi nulla, un pugno di fanatici trasportati in autobus da tutto il paese. [English]

The recent BBC documentary 'Panorama: Britain's Secret Terror Force' may have once again put a spotlight on the extent of British state-sponsored terrorism in the North and the activities of its various shadowy forces; but the level of orchestration, impunity, collusion and cover up is yet to be truly uncovered.

imageCéad Míle Fáilte*? Racial Profiling in the Ireland Oct 24 by José Antonio Gutiérrez D. 1 comments

Over the last couple of days we have witnessed massive media hysteria about the case of Maria, a young girl supposedly abducted by a Roma couple in Greece. DNA tests and Lombroso-style racial profiling have come into action in a case that has stirred the irrational anxiety that feeds racism and bigotry. Beyond the fact that child abduction is a serious issue, the "whiteness" and "blondeness" of the alleged victim have been emphasised together with the "Roma" condition of the alleged culprits. Let us remember that this is taking place in Greece, a country where blatant racism (as expressed by Golden Dawn) is on the rise, so there are good reasons to be cautious about this whole case.

imageIrish Travellers - Apartheid, Irish Style Oct 23 by D. Sreenan 0 comments

In Ireland institutional racism has evolved to come fitted as standard. At the same time the State dithers about making the decision on whether or not to grant Travellers ethnic status. As the Stephen Lawrence family lawyer, Imran Khan stated – when you write laws of the land specifically for a people – it is a sure sign that you recognise them as a specific group when you bring in laws that pertain only to them. So, in Ireland, are Travellers specifically targeted in the Anti-Trespass Act brought in 2002 and Section 24 of the Criminal Justice Act (1994).
