Anarchism will not be created in this country, or any other, by a tiny group of people. Even in Ireland a successful anarchist revolution would require tens of thousands of active anarchists. Anarchists living on every street and active in every workplace. We obviously have a long way to go!
It's great your interested in getting involved with the WSM or helping with aspects of our work. We know everyone has different levels of interest, energy & spare time so we offer a range of ways you can work with us. All of them will be a significant help in our work. The first step for all these options is entering your details into our Contact notification system, you can do this at the link below
Become a Member
Members of the WSM are people who have decided to play a constant active role in the organisation and contribute a percentage of their income on a regular basis. This won't be for everyone but if you agree with our points of unity below and are willing to commit to at least 8 hours work plus two meetings a month you should apply to become a member. Our members are what make the WSM and all the work we are involved in possible, members have an automatic right to attend all WSM meeting and have a vote on all decisions the WSM makes.
Become a Supporter
Some people won't be able to make the level of commitment above but would still like to be able to help out a bit with financing our work and give a hand from time to time in the areas they are most interested in. Supporters agree to make a regular monthly donation of 5, 20 or 50 euro and to help out when they have time in the areas they are interested in. They get access to internal WSM discussions online and are entitled to attend regular local supporters meetings if they wish and can apply to attend other WSM meetings (space permitting) like our National Conference. They are required to confirm will respect the confidentiality of internal WSM processes and other information they are given access to. They should broadly agree with our points of unity (see below).
Become a Contact
Contacts are people who would like to get our email newsletter and perhaps give a hand from time to time in areas of activity they are interested in including our external campaign work. To become a contact all you have to do is enter yourself into our Email Notification system at the link below and we will then let you know of activity near you in the areas you indicated an interest in. You'll be able to change or even remove your details at any point or apply to become a WSM supporter or member.
In all three cases the next step is to enter yourself into our Contact Notification system. If you want to become a Supporter or a Member simply tick the relevant box as part of that process and we will be in contact.
We have detailed position papers on all the areas where we are active. These form the collectively agreed policy of the WSM. Disagreement and debate around these papers is continuous, these collective position are constantly being modified so obviously we do not expect members to agree with every detail. All members are however expected to broadly agree with points 1 to 8 below which outline the core of our anarchism.
Whether you want to become a member, a supporter or just a contact the next step is to enter yourself into our contact system at the link below. Remember to check the 'Become a member' or 'Become a supporter' box if that is what you want to do. You can change, update or delete any of those details later
