Organising In Challenging Times
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.
The big issue was the attack on the working class currently happening world-wide. The workshop titled 'Kicking Capitalism While It's Down - Responses To The Recession' was a particular highlight of the Saturday time-table, with almost the whole attendance engaged intensely in a discussion of activities and strategies our class might use to fight back against the designs of the rich, as the crisis in the capitalist economy unfolds. Thanks are due to the Cork branch of the Workers Solidarity Movement for helping organise that part of the weekend's programme, and also to Cork-based socialist activists from other left organisations and traditions for organising or participating in many of the weekend's activities.
