Anarchism & the WSM
After ten years of Celtic Tiger Ireland the old lies are beginning to unravel; the politicians, the property developers, and the business class have made a packet, while the rest of us have seen an attack on our services, corrupt government and environmental destruction. Now, as we face into a recession, we’re left with a health service on the brink of collapse, water not fit for drinking, and a government making noises about an attack on wages. But things are beginning to change, across Ireland people are beginning to organise and fight for social change.
As anarchists, the WSM are fighting for a society organised for human happiness, a society without the need for eaders and bosses and where the wealth of the world is owned in common.
We have branches in Cork, Belfast and Dublin, and are working in a number of campaigns, including the Shell to Sea campaign, the Campaign for Decent Public Health System, and pro-choice activism. WSM Cork meets every week, so feel free to come along.
