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
irlanda / gran bretagna / la sinistra / cronaca Monday December 13, 2010 15:43 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
ireland / britain / workplace struggles / opinion / analysis Tuesday September 21, 2010 18:10 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 17:09 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
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 17:43 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 20:27 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
ireland / britain / economy / opinion / analysis Thursday May 26, 2005 17:23 by Gregor Kerr
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

imageY no pasaron: masivo repudio a PEGIDA en las calles de Dublín Feb 08 by José Antonio Gutiérrez D. 0 comments

El día 6 de Febrero la organización fascista PEGIDA, grupo anti-musulmán que ha venido creciendo en toda Europa, organizó manifestaciones continentales para agitar sentimientos racistas, xenófobos y anti-humanitarios. Marcharon en otras partes de Europa. Pero en Dublín se les envió un mensaje claro. Acá no hay espacio político para el fascismo. Este mensaje se dijo con pedagogía y con fuerza, con argumentos y con determinación.

imageSíria: O que aconteceu com os curdos nas 'negociações' de Genebra? Feb 08 by José Antonio Gutiérrez D. 0 comments

Na semana passada estava prevista uma reunião em Genebra, no marco das negociações indiretas entre o governo sírio e as facções da 'oposição' armada reunidas no grupo divulgado pelo nome tonitruante de Alto Comitê para as Negociações. O enviado da ONU para a crise síria, Staffan de Mistura, decidiu adiar a reunião para o dia 25 de fevereiro. Curiosamente porém, foi excluído daquela reunião o partido dos curdos, o PYD, o qual, dentre outras coisas, é ator político importantíssimo no futuro da Síria e a única força que combateu em solo contra o 'Estado Islâmico'. É paradoxal que se boicote a participação do PYD, quando a mídia-empresa ocidental tão frequentemente vendeu a imagem dos curdos como os "amigos" do ocidente, cuidando atentamente de esconder os reais objetivos políticos desse movimento, e limitando sua simpatia a uma imagem semierotizada de mulheres jovens armadas com fuzis.

imageSyrie : qu'est-il arrivé aux Kurdes dans les négociations de Genève? Feb 08 by José Antonio Gutiérrez D. 0 comments

Il devait se tenir la semaine dernière à Genève une réunion dans le cadre des négociations indirectes entre le gouvernement syrien et les diverses factions de l' « opposition »armée regroupées sous le nom ronflant de Haut Comité des négociations. L'envoyé spécial de l'ONU pour la crise syrienne, Staffan de Mistura, a décidé de reporter la réunion au 25 février. Curieusement, le parti kurde PYD, qui est, entre autres, un acteur politique essentiel de l'avenir de la Syrie et la seule force qui ait combattu l’État Islamique sur le terrain, a été exclu de cette réunion. Il est paradoxal qu'il soit boycotté dans le cadre de cette réunion, alors que les médias occidentaux nous ont souvent présenté les Kurdes comme des « amis » de l'Occident, tout en prenant bien soin de ne pas trop parler des objectifs politiques de ce mouvement et en limitant leur sympathie à un image semi-érotisée de jeunes femmes armées de fusils.

Σήμερα που ο καπιταλισμός αποκτά όλο και πιο ολοκληρωτικά χαρακτηριστικά, που κράτος και κεφάλαιο αμφότερα γιγαντωμένα επιτίθενται και καταστρέφουν τις ελάχιστες κατακτήσεις των καταπιεσμένων και οδηγούν ολόκληρους πληθυσμούς στην κυριολεκτική τους εκμηδένιση είναι εύλογο, ίσως, το ερώτημα αν τα ανταγωνιστικά κινήματα έχουν την πολυτέλεια να μένουν αγκυλωμένα στις ιστορικές τους διαφορές ή αν θα πρέπει –έστω και υπό το βάρος των συνθηκών έκτακτης ανάγκης που αντιμετωπίζουμε– να ενώσουν τις δυνάμεις τους σε μία αντικαπιταλιστική προοπτική.

Curiosamente, de esta reunión se ha excluido al partido kurdo, el PYD, quienes son, entre otras cosas un actor político importantísimo en el futuro de Siria y la única fuerza que ha combatido en terreno al Estado Islámico.
