The outraged media reaction to a jury doing its job and finding the Jobstown defendants not guilty is quite extraordinary. Rather than do the right thing and launch an investigation as to how 180 cops could produce evidence that was directly contradicted by video evidence, the media have gone on a rant against Twitter! Rather than finding it suspicious that nearly 3 million in public funds was spent by the DPP on a case that any proper check of available evidence should have indicated was never likely to convince a jury, the media suggest instead that the problem lay in the exact charges brought. The trial was part of a large scale state operation to suppress a mass anti-austerity community campaign. read full story / add a comment

Almost a century ago, an armed insurrection took place in Ireland to end British rule and to establish an independent Irish Republic. The 1916 Rising was soon accompanied by major popular revolts against World War One across Europe and later emulated by anti-colonial movements across the Global South. When it comes to remembering the 1916 Rising, why do conservative politicians and historians want to convince us that it would have been better for us if Pearse and Connolly had stayed at home? Why did the state parade lots of military equipment and personnel down O’Connell Street to mark the centenary? Why did so many people turn out to watch it? This panel attempts to think through the meaning of 1916 for us today, and the politics at stake in how these events are remembered, forgotten, and mis-remembered. read full story / add a comment

How many could we house, educate and care for with 19 billion? The Irish government is currently furiously fighting the European Union to prevent Apple paying us back taxes it owes us. There has been a lot of ‘concern’ about government plans to spend 48 million looking after 4000 people fleeing warfare in Syria and Iraq. The government and the media defend there ‘our own’ is first - the super rich in Ireland and elsewhere! read full story / add a comment

A large force of Garda and council workers were deployed at 3.30am today, International Women's Day, to clear Occupy Dame Street (ODS) camp. The camp was completely demolished in the course of the eviction, campers intimidated and their personal property stolen. This was a level of force way out of proportion with the numbers in the camp (about 15 people) and stands in contrast with the lack of resources put into investigating what happened at Anglo, the collapse of which has left a debt of 26,000 Euro on every single person in the country.   [Italiano] read full story / add a comment

An Irish anarchist perspective on today's EU crisis summit decision to reduce Greek debt by 50%, in the face of the recent resistance by the Greek working class. Particularly as contrasted with the differing levels of resistence in Ireland and the corresponding dictat of making the people of Ireland pay 100% of the debts incurred in the Irish property boom casino by globalised finance. read full story / add a comment

The 'Occupy X' movement arrived in Ireland over the weekend when a core group of around 50 people set up camp at the Central Bank Plaza on Dame street. Numbers grew to a few hundred at times over the next days and nights as supporters came down to join in for a while and the curious stopped to see what was going on. Issues highlighted by participants included the bank bail out, IMF intervention & the ongoing Great Oil & Gas Giveaway. read full story / add a comment

The sudden end of the Gaddafi regime some 6 months after the start of the Libyan revolt leaves some difficult questions unanswered for the left. Gaddafi’s determination to physically crush the revolt quickly transformed it into a civil war, a civil war that saw considerable imperialist intervention on the rebel side, intervention that was essential to their eventual victory. This and Gaddafi’s historic record led to some on the left taking his side in the civil war while other organisations tried to balance support for the ‘Arab spring’s’ arrival in Libya with opposition to imperialism.

Μια λαϊκή παροιμία της Αϊτής λέει «Tanbou prete pa janm fe bon dans» («Ένα δανεισμένο τύμπανο ποτέ δεν παράγει καλό χορό»), δείχνοντας μια γενική συνειδητοποίηση του ποιος είναι ο πραγματικός ρόλος της εξωτερικής παρέμβασης. Φυσικά, αν η ιμπεριαλιστική επέμβαση δεν τελείωσε το1790, δεν τελείωσε και η αντίσταση του λαού της Αϊτής. Η αλληλεγγύη με τον λαό της Αϊτής δεν αρχίζει και τελειώνει με αφορμή αυτόν τον τραγικό σεισμό, αλλά πρέπει να επεκταθεί στους αγώνες που θα ξετυλιχθούν στον απόηχό του, ενάντια στον «καπιταλισμό της καταστροφής» που επιχειρείται τώρα να επιβληθεί.

Καθώς οι προβλέψεις για τον αριθμό των νεκρών από το σεισμοί στην Αϊτή μιλούν για πάνω από 200.000, οι ειδήσεις στο ABC News ανέφεραν ότι τα αεροπλάνα που μεταφέρουν ιατρικό εξοπλισμό και εφόδια αρωγής πρέπει να αντιμετωπίσουν στρατιώτες για τον πολύτιμο διαθέσιμο χρόνο στο αεροδρόμιο του Πορτ-ο-Πρενς που εξαγοράστηκε από τον στρατό των ΗΠΑ μετά το σεισμό. Από την έναρξη της μεγάλης δημοκρατικής εξέγερσης ενάντια στο καθεστώς σκλαβιάς σχεδόν 220 χρόνια πριν, η Αϊτή έχει παρουσιαστεί ως μια επικίνδυνη χώρα ανίκανη να διεκπεραιώσει τις δικές της υποθέσεις και απαιτεί την ξένη επέμβαση. read full story / add a comment

In the latest round of attacks on ordinary workers in order to force us to pay for the crisis in capitalism the government had "declared a moratorium on Recruitment and Promotions in the Public Service with effect from 27th March". This is both yet another direct attack on public sector workers and an indirect attack on all workers as it means our access to health, education and other essential services will be further reduced. read full story / add a comment

The Olympics Resistance Network is a space to coordinate anti-colonial and anti-capitalist efforts against the 2010 Games within Vancouver, Coast Salish Territories. Our organizing is based on the recognition that the Olympics is taking place on unceded Native land, and exists to create a movement for all anti capitalist, Indigenous, anti poverty, labour, migrant justice, housing, environmental justice, civil libertarian, anti war, and anti colonial activists to join forces. We come together on the basis of anti-oppression principles and with a respect for diversity of tactics. In addition to building ongoing educational and resistance efforts, we are working towards a convergence between February 10th-15th 2010, based on the call by the Indigenous Peoples Gathering in Sonora, Mexico to boycott the Games. read full story / add a comment

Net als met het anarchisme zijn er veel manieren om te denken over het anarchafeminisme. Het kan worden gezien als een manier om anarchistische ideeen binnen de feministische beweging te bevorderen of vice versa - om feministische ideeen binnen de anarchistische beweging te bevorderen. Maar het anarchafeminisme is niet eenvoudigweg een mengsel van mensen die bij beide betrokken zijn. Het anarchisme en het feminisme delen diepe verbindingen. read full story / add a comment
