At our national conference L&S decided to endorse the Militant Workers Block on the basis of its callout (see appendix). We were happy that the loose group of London libertarians the callout came from, and that some of us are part of, hand met our request to make the language broad enough to include all people in favour of workers’ direct action against the crisis – specifically the IWW. Once the rest of our union had also endorsed the event we set about making sure we had the best possible impact on the day itself.

Workers on the march

Following on from the occupation of the Waterford Glass plant in February which managed to save some of the jobs and improve redundancy conditions workers in Belfast at Visteon occupied their factor last week. With plant closures happening across the island of Ireland both these occupations provide an example of workers taking direct action to preserve jobs and/or force employers to improve on redundancy conditions. Here we present reports from WSM members from these occupations and background articles. ... read full story / add a comment

Ιρλανδία / Μεγάλη Βρετανία / Αναρχικό κίνημα / Ανακοίνωση Τύπου Saturday April 04, 2009 - 20:05 by Αναρχικοί Γλασκώβης
Χθες μέσω της δράσης της Μητροπολιτικής Αστυνομίας ένας άνδρας πέθανε κατά την διάρκεια των διαμαρτυριών κατά των G20 στην πόλη του Λονδίνου. Αυτό που δε θα πρέπει να ξεχαστεί και διαφωτίζει αυτή η δολοφονία είναι ότι δεν είναι η πρώτη ούτε και θα είναι η τελευταία στα χέρια του κεφαλαίου. ... 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

Er hing het wolkje van iets in de lucht van Derry. De constante toename van burgerdoden in Gaza had in de straten van Derry al de zelfde uitingen van woede veroorzaakt als in de hele wereld. Duizenden handtekeningen waren verzameld onder een oproep om Raytheon tegen te werken, terwijl steeds grotere menigtes zich voor wakes hadden verzameld bij de gedenktekens, marsen door de stad, demonstraties bij de Guildhall en bij een geweldloze blokkade van Raytheon zelf. Nu werden meer en meer van ons vastbesloten dat we niet hoeven toe te geven aan gevoelens van hulpeloosheid ten aanzien van Israel's oorlogsmisdaden. Onze brandende woede bracht iets positiefs teweeg. ... read full story / add a comment

That the very threat of a national strike was enough to force government and IBEC (Irish employers' organisation) to change their position demonstrates the power the working class holds when we threaten to withdraw our labor. For all the media attempts to convince us we are powerless and that class struggle is a thing of the past when faced with the reality of the organised working class standing up both bosses and state were keen to avoid any confrontation that could illustrate and encourage our collective power. ... read full story / add a comment

The workers at Waterford Crystal occupying the plant are an example to us all. Rather than accept the closure of the business, the loss of all the jobs and the destruction of the area’s premier industry; workers seized the buildings making liquidation impossible for the receiver. ... read full story / add a comment

Δεν έχουν μείνει χρήματα στην Ιρλανδία. Τουλάχιστον αυτό θα πιστεύατε αν ακούγατε τον Brian Cowen, την Enda Kenny, το IBEC και όλο το τσούρμο των καπιταλιστών οικονομολόγων και ειδικών που παπαγαλίζουν αυτές τις ανοησίες.

There is no money left in Ireland. At least that’s what you might think after listening to Brian Cowen, Enda Kenny, IBEC and the parade of capitalist economists and pundits who parrot this nonsense. Yes, we are heading into a deep recession but guess who is expected to pay the cost? [Ελληνικά] ... read full story / add a comment

Liberty & Solidarity (L&S) è nata solo 6 mesi fa nello storico Freedom Bookshop di Londra Est. Già a quel livello di organizzazione, eravamo riusciti a portare insieme diversi attivisti di classe tra i più impegnati nelle lotte sindacali e territoriale. Da allora abbiamo aiutato a ricostituire gli Industrial Workers of the World (IWW) e abbiamo avuto dei successi con la London Coalition Against Poverty (LCAP), gli orti collettivi a Reading e nuovi fogli d'informazione a Glasgow. Tuttavia, mentre abbiamo stabilito il tono durante la prima Conferenza, abbiamo senz'altro alzato il volume durante la seconda. [English] ... read full story / add a comment

On Saturday 120,000 workers marched through Dublin demanding the the public sector pay cut ('pension levy') be withdrawn, that jobs cuts be opposed and that all the other attacks on the working class be ended. Over the last couple of weeks there have been dozens of local union meetings of workers in the public sector demanding strike action to halt the cuts. The march was a chance not only to put pressure on the government but also to demand that our unions do the only thing that can halt the cuts, call a national strike.

The WSM met up to leaflet the march at 1.30 at the Parnell monument, and then joined the demonstration with a banner demanding a National Strike. Here we present reports, interviews with and photos from WSM members who took part on the demonstration and the leafletting as well as background articles on the nature of the crisis ... read full story / add a comment

Dublino, sabato 21 febbraio 2009. Circa 120.000 persone scendono in piazza per dire no alla proposta del governo di introdurre qualcosa conosciuto come "l'imposta sulle pensioni". Si tratta di una tassa tra il 3% e il 9,6% sullo stipendio lordo dei lavoratori nel settore pubblico, che nel maggior parte dei casi sarà intorno al 7%, cioè di circa €2.000 all'anno. ... read full story / add a comment

The Grassroots Gathering is a twice-yearly coming together of anarchists and libertarian socialists who are active in political groups and campaigns up and down the island of Ireland. The second of 2008's Gatherings was held in Cork on 14th-16th November. The 90 or so attending, combined with the quality of the discussions, left its organisers very pleased with the weekend. It showed that there's a lot of life left in the Grassroots Gathering as a show-case for trends and thinking among Ireland's libertarian left. ... read full story / add a comment
