ireland / britain / community struggles / news report Friday July 29, 2011 22:22 by Gregor Kerr
The announcement from the Irish government that households are to face a charge of €100 per annum from January 1st with separate water and property taxes to follow by 2014 has met with fierce opposition across the country.  Radio and television shows have been inundated with texts and phonecalls from irate people who see this latest tax as a step too far and who have been pledging to resist the charge.  In a TV3 IrelandAM poll this morning, Wednesday, 87% of people answered ‘Yes’ to the question “Would you consider boycotting the household charge?” read full story / add a comment

Attempts by the Israeli government to sabotage the International ‘Stay Human’ Freedom Flotilla to Gaza have resulted in 2 ships – the Greek-Swedish Juliano and the Irish-owned MV Saoirse – having to withdraw from the Flotilla following damage to both. An emergency demonstration was held at the Spire in Dublin Thursday 30 June to protest the sabotage, see the pictures below. read full story / add a comment

The government has made it clear that it is determined to press ahead with its attempts to impose not one but two new taxes on us.  Minister for the Environment Phil Hogan is preparing to bring plans to government for a household tax, probably starting at €100 per year, from 1st January.  This tax will be added to by a water tax, expected to be introduced within the next couple of years. read full story / add a comment

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
ireland / britain / workplace struggles / opinion / analysis Tuesday September 21, 2010 19:10 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

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
ireland / britain / workplace struggles / news report Saturday March 13, 2010 22:40 by Gregor Kerr - Workers Solidarity 114
Since the middle of January civil and public servants have engaged in a work-to-rule in an attempt to force a reversal of the pay cuts announced by the government in the December budget. Across the country workers in government offices, colleges, schools, hospitals etc. are taking action, which they hope will result in a change of government policy. read full story / add a comment

The Irish Congress of Trade Unions’ ‘Get Up Stand Up’ protest on Friday 6th November is of huge importance. The government have made it clear that they intend to make ordinary workers pay for the financial crisis. Friday can be the start of us finally standing up and saying that we are not going to accept this. 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

ierland / groot-brittannië / anarchistische beweging / opinion/analysis Monday September 10, 2007 18:43 by Gregor Kerr
Elders in dit blad ("Red & Black Revolution", zie ‘Anarchism, Elections and all that’), wordt de anarchistische zaak tegen deelname aan verkiezingen omschreven. De alternatieve politieke strategie die door anarchisten naar voren wordt gebracht is het gebruik van directe actie. Dit artikel zet uiteen wat is bedoeld met het concept van directe actie en ook om te stellen dat het onmogelijk is electoralisme en directe actie te combineren, dat door diens aard het electoralisme machteloos maakt, en dat werkelijke directe actie en deelname aan verkiezingen elkaar wederzijds uitsluiten. read full story / add a comment
ireland / britain / workplace struggles / news report Thursday April 05, 2007 21:27 by Gregor Kerr
The nurses’ work-to-rule and their threat to escalate the action next week has been met with an outraged onslaught by Mary Harney and Bertie Ahern. The sight of a group of workers standing up and demanding their rights has become so unusual that it seems as if the government cannot believe the temerity of the nurses in doing just that.
Nurses – through the Irish Nurses Organisation and the Psychiatric Nurses Association – have put forward two key demands
· A 10% pay increase to bring their pay back in line with other health workers
· The introduction of a 35-hour working week, again bringing their working hours in line with other health workers read full story / add a comment

The battle by the community in Rossport Co. Mayo (Ireland) to prevent Shell from riding roughshod over their rights and safety shot to national prominence late last year when 5 local men (who became known as the Rossport 5) spent over 3 months in jail. The men were imprisoned for protesting against attempts by Shell to bring a high-pressure gas pipeline across their lands in close proximity to their homes. read full story / add a comment

The Dublin City North Branch of the INTO has passed a motion endorsing the call by outgoing union president, Austin Corcoran, that all schools become safe places for all children -to be given the status of embassies. It is hoped that more branches within the union will take up this issue and that by next year's annual congress a campaign will be launched in the union to make this a reality read full story / add a comment

Debate on the effectiveness of the Black Bloc tactic could well go on forever. It is certainly hard to avoid the conclusion that anti-globalisation protests that avoid direct action will kill off the movement, or at least greatly reduce participation in it. read full story / add a comment

Whether we pay rent or a mortgage, the cost of keeping a roof over our heads takes up a huge proportion of our income - those of us who are 'lucky' enough to be in a position to do so. Everywhere we look - both in Dublin and other cities and also in small rural villages and towns - the skyline is dotted with cranes and houses and apartments seem to be springing up everywhere. read full story / add a comment

ireland / britain / crime prison and punishment / feature Thursday March 03, 2005 22:13 by Gregor Kerr
The term 'community policing' has been much abused in recent times, most particularly in the North of Ireland where it has become shorthand for vicious punishment beatings and shootings. Gregor Kerr takes a look at the issue of community policing - what it is and more importantly what it isn't. The question of what levels of real community policing would actually be possible or allowed under capitalism is looked at, and the debate about crime, anti-social behaviour and reactions to it in an anarchist society is touched on. read full story / add a comment

The far-right bastards of syriza go smoothly hand in hand with ND (nea dimokratia, right-wing party in power before syriza’s election), anthimos (the metropolit, church’s highest officer in Thessaloniki) and all the rest pile of shit, consisting the long arm of repression. With a non-seen before operation of revenge against no border camp, they attack in the crack of dawn on families of refugees in their own homes and on the solidaries.

Ένας χρόνος έκλεισε σήμερα από την βομβιστική επίθεση στο Suruç στη Ν.Τουρκία στα σύνορα με το Kobane. Οι εκδηλώσεις μνήμης που είχαν προγραμματιστεί για το περασμένο Σαββάτο 16/07 ακυρώθηκαν, καθώς την προηγούμενη ημέρα η απόπειρα πραξικοπήματος στην Τουρκία συμπίεσε μεγάλης κλίμακας ιστορικά γεγονότα σε διάστημα λίγων ωρών. Όλες αυτές τις μέρες οι μόνοι που νιώθουν άνετα να κυκλοφορούν όλο το εικοσιτετράωρο μέσα στην πόλη είναι οι οπαδοί του κόμματος AKP και οργανωμένοι ή σκόρπιοι εθνικιστές ή φανατικοί ισλαμιστές που συμμετέχουν στην περιφρούρηση και την προστασία της πολύ- αμφιλεγόμενης τουρκικής “δημοκρατίας”.

The message the left wing government wants to transmit is that there is no space for solidarity and self-managed responses to the ordeal of the refugees, only the state’s charity and the confinement, marginalisation and selective deportation carried out by a government that follows to the letter the criminal immigration policies of the EE.

Ya vamos por la mitad del mal llamado “año de la paz”, se han dado varios de los pasos para llegar a tal fin según el discurso oficial, ya se mencionó con bombos y platillos que “el último día de la guerra” había llegado. Y bueno, vale la pena reconocer que efectivamente es un hecho histórico, un hito en la realidad del país -eso es una verdad a voces-, pero decir que vivimos el “último día de la guerra” trae consigo un sesgo político, social, cultural y económico de la realidad bastante fuerte, no es más que lo que podría mencionarse en términos literarios: toda una hipérbole.

Το κράτος δεν παρέχει μία εναλλακτική οδό στον καπιταλισμό ούτε ο καπιταλισμός στο κράτος. Και οι δύο αυτές δομές κοινωνικής οργάνωσης συνδέονται εσωτερικά και αλληλοσυμπληρώνονται. Δεδομένου του γεγονότος ότι καμία από τις δύο δομές δεν είναι επιθυμητή αναδύεται η ερώτηση: υπάρχει ένας τρίτος δρόμος; Η συζήτηση που προηγήθηκε για τον αναρχο-συνδικαλιστικό-ακρατικό σοσιαλισμό – προσπάθησε να δείξει τη διανοητική συνοχή, την πιθανότητα, και την επιθυμία του ως εναλλακτικής διεξόδου. Το θέμα επομένως που αντιμετωπίζουν οι σοσιαλιστές δεν είναι: “εάν ήρθε το τέλος της ιστορίας” Η πρόκληση μάλλον είναι να ανακαλύψουμε ξανά και να μάθουμε από ένα σημαντικό κομμάτι της ιστορίας, την πλούσια και ιστορικά καταξιωμένη παράδοση του αναρχοσυνδικαλισμού.

Durante enero de este año la llegada de la marea roja desató una serie de movilizaciones en la Región de Los Lagos. Esta era la causa principal presentada por el gobierno para la crisis socioambiental que azotaba la región, silenciando las consecuencias de la depredación de las empresas salmoneras en la zona. Una salmonera había vertido el día 9 de mayo, 9 toneladas de desperdicios a 17 millas de la costa de Ancud, con la aprobación de Directemar y Sernapesca. Pero este no era un hecho aislado, ya habían pasado 40 años de industria salmonera en el territorio.
