In this magazine we look to explore ideas about the world around us, how these ideas inform practice and how the intersection of the two leads to new theory, beginning the process afresh. We believe that ideas can only be tested in the laboratory of real life struggle and that this magazine can be a forum for activists who are part of the daily struggle that is going on right now. We hope that the articles here can stimulate discussion and debate and perhaps even motivate some of our readers to respond with articles of their own.</p>\r\n<p><strong><a href=\"http://www.scribd.com/doc/176591433/Irish-Anarchist-Review-6\">Print Quality PDF on Scribd</a></strong></p>\r\n\";s:21:\"node_revisions_format\";s:1:\"2\";s:7:\"_random\";s:20:\"0.016899250463488745\";}i:1;O:8:\"stdClass\":5:{s:3:\"nid\";s:4:\"1625\";s:10:\"node_title\";s:40:\"Red & Black Revolution 7, published 2003\";s:21:\"node_revisions_teaser\";s:296:\"<p><img src=\"/attachments/jan2007/rbr7cover.gif\" style=\"float:right;border:5px;\" />Articles in this issue include a debate on the Black Bloc, a look at the failings of the Irish Anti war Movement and a piece which explores the anarchist contention that socialism cannot come without freedom</p>\r\n\";s:21:\"node_revisions_format\";s:1:\"2\";s:7:\"_random\";s:20:\"0.026404064173255175\";}}s:10:\"total_rows\";i:73;s:5:\"pager\";a:5:{s:9:\"use_pager\";s:1:\"0\";s:14:\"items_per_page\";i:2;s:7:\"element\";i:0;s:6:\"offset\";i:1;s:12:\"current_page\";i:0;}}', created = 1565950508, expire = 1565950808, headers = '', serialized = 1 WHERE cid = 'Random_PDF:block_1:results:2c8fe56be4c7f9447dcadf9786d13482' in /var/www/public/includes/cache.inc on line 112.

PM Press author Gabriel Kuhn gave a talk on the subversive side of football to the 2011 Dublin Anarchist Bookfair. This is the recording of that talk and the discussion that followed.

"Soccer versus the State: Tackling Football and Radical Politics" is the latest book by Gabriel who published four books with PM Press in the last year.Soccer has turned into a multi-billion dollar industry. Professionalism and commercialization dominate its global image. Yet the game retains a rebellious side, maybe more so than any other sport co-opted by money makers and corrupt politicians. From its roots in working-class England to political protests by players and fans, and a current radical soccer underground, the notion of football as the "people's game" has been kept alive by numerous individuals, teams, and communities.
