Hundreds of people from all over Ireland are expected to attend the 7th annual Dublin Anarchist Bookfair which takes place in Liberty Hall, Dublin on Saturday 26th May. The Bookfair, organised by the Workers Solidarity Movement, will consist of a day of meetings, debates, discussions and films and will also host bookstalls and information stands from a large number of political organisations and campaigning groups.

Workers Solidarity Movement spokesperson Gregor Kerr said he expects attendance at this year’s Bookfair to “reflect the fact that more and more people are beginning to search for an alternative to the chaotic political system that is capitalism.

The last number of months has seen a new awakening of political awareness in Ireland,” Kerr continued. “Hundreds of thousands of people have refused to pay the household tax. Communities are organising to resist the water tax. People are beginning to realise that we don’t have to accept the inevitability of the boom-bust cycle of capitalism and that the extent to which the austerity agenda can be imposed on us is related to the extent to which we are prepared to resist it.

In that context,” Mr. Kerr concluded, “the Anarchist Bookfair is about exploring new ideas, discussing options for an alternative type of society and above all awakening possibilities. Anyone who comes along won’t go away disappointed.

Highlights on the meeting schedule include:

  • Referendum Debate - Will Voting No Make Any Difference? – a debate between Paul Murphy, Socialist Party MEP and Mark Hoskins of the Workers Solidarity Movement
  • Abortion in Ireland- Is The X Case Enough? – a panel discussion with Dr. Mary Favier (Doctors For Choice) and other speakers to be confirmed
  • Is It Kicking Off In Ireland? – a discussion about whether Irish people are beginning to organise against the politics of austerity with Tommy McKearney who has been involved in helping to establish the Campaign Against Household and Water Taxes, Gregor Kerr who was centrally involved in the DEIS Action Group and others
  • Racism In The Recession – with Hannah McGinley Community Development Worker with the Galway Traveller Movement and Gavin Titlley, co-author of ‘The Crises of Multiculturalism? Racism in a Neoliberal Age’
  • Come Here To Me: Dublin’s Other History - Sam McGrath presents his research on the life and death of English revolutionary socialist Arthur 'Neal' Wicks who was killed in action in the Easter Rising.
  • Old Media In The Age Of the Internet - why bother with Radical and Underground publishing?
  • My Life in politics - Radical women speak
  • Unlock NAMA

    repealbanner.jpg imageWSM International Women’s Day Message - 2018 19:13 Do 08 Mär by WSM women 0 comments

    International Working Women’s Day is steeped in the radical history of women demanding improvement in our daily lives and in our working conditions. IWWD dates back to 1857 in New York City. Women garment workers went on strike to demand a 10-hour working day, better working conditions and equal rights.  In honour of this strike, another was held  in 1908 by women needle trade workers.  They demanded voting rights and, an end to sweatshops and child labour. Two years later, the socialist, Clara Zetkin, proposed that the 8th of March be commemorated as International Working Women’s Day.  It was first celebrated nationally in the Soviet Union after the https://www.wsm.ie/russian-revolution, a  revolution which  began with a strike  of women textile workers. On https://www.wsm.ie/iwd, women stand in solidarity with each other against oppression. We demand control over our lives. We demand https://www.wsm.ie/c/anarchism-oppression-exploitation-policy. We demand freedom.

    This is a very tiny contribution about the factors that caused the weakness of anarchism and the anarchist movement. Once we establish our weakness perhaps it won’t be difficult to overcome our problems. This article covers only three of our weak areas.

    Believe a better world is possible. Don't be afraid to dream. We all know this isn't good enough. How could it be? Are we not destined for so much more? Have we not seen glimpses of what we are truly capable of? This could be paradise. It really could be.
