The WSM are shocked and deeply saddened to learn of the death of Alan MacSimóin, one of our founder members, a friend, and a key central figure in building the anarchist movement in Ireland for over four decades. Alan had not been a member of WSM for some years but remained politically active right to the end. His last Facebook post on November 29th was supporting the locked out bricklayers at Mary’s Mansions. Alan will be sorely missed by all in the WSM and we offer our heartfelt condolences to his family and friends. read full story / add a comment

ireland / britain / anarchist movement / press release Thursday March 08, 2018 19:13 by WSM women 4 images
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. read full story / add a comment

Solidarity to LUAS workers fighting to restore their share of the wealth - we need strong public transport unions
ireland / britain / workplace struggles / press release Sunday February 14, 2016 07:31 by WSM 1 image
Our solidarity today (11/02) to the LUAS workers striking for decent pay rates. The crisis was used by the government and capitalist class to drive down wages and ensure that a bigger share of profits went to shareholders. The LUAS fight is a fight for all of us as a victory should be a green light to all workers to demand pay rises, including the recovery of the money lost in the cuts imposed under the crisis. Across the world the share of income that goes to the richest 1% has soared while that going tooth rest of us has been slashed, we need to fight to reverse this. read full story / add a comment

Η διαδρομή προς την ελευθερία βρίσκεται μέσα από την αγάπη και την αλληλεγγύη μεταξύ των ανθρώπων που αποτελούν την εργατική τάξη και όχι μέσω των πολέμων και της «σύγκρουσης μεταξύ των πολιτισμών». Υπάρχει μια επιλογή στην οποία πρέπει να προχωρήσουμε τις επόμενες ημέρες και τα χρόνια, μιας και το Παρίσι δεν θα είναι η τελευταία θηριωδία και τέτοιες επιθέσεις έχουν σχεδιαστεί ακριβώς για να εντείνουν τον μιλιταρισμό και να εξάψουν το μίσος. Οι σύμμαχοί μας δεν είναι οι δυνάμεις της ιμπεριαλιστικής σφαγής που δημιούργησαν αυτές τις συνθήκες, αλλά μάλλον όλες εκείνες δυνάμεις της περιοχής αυτής που αγωνίζονται για μια πραγματικά ελεύθερη κοινωνία. read full story / add a comment

The 140 people killed in the attacks in Paris last night were murdered by Daesh, the self proclaimed ‘Islamic State’. On June 25th this year a much larger ISIS suicide force of about 80 attacked the city of Kobane using a similar mix of suicide bombs, guns and the taking and murdering of hostages. Some 223 civilians were murdered, many when ISIS broke into homes killing everyone inside. Around 40 Kurdish militia were killed in the process of stopping the slaughter.

The General Election in New Zealand/Aotearoa took place at the end of September and so its all over and done with. More accurately, the ritual of deciding who will politically rule over us has ended. The election of our bosses in the workplace never happened. The end result in both cases is the same. We are faced with a ruling class that feels emboldened to attack workers when it senses opportunities to do so. The latest piece of ammunition the government is preparing to lob our way comes in the form of a bland sounding piece of legislation, the Employment Relations Amendment Bill. This law was delayed prior to the election, due to the resignation of the now ex-MP criminal John Banks, but will be enacted within the next 100 days. What is the bill about? read full story / add a comment
