Why we don't welcome the visit of the British Queen

Date:

The British Queen - An enemy of the working class, an enemy of the poor, head of the imperialist British state, symbol of privilege, inequality and oppression.

The visit: why now?
There is a drive to normalise the British occupation of the six counties and partition. It is part of a wider pattern to integrate Ireland into the loose alliance of imperialist nations. There has always been a desire on behalf of the British state, the USA and the European Union to engage Ireland as a junior partner in the imperialist club. The ending of the war in the north and the gradual normalisation of relations between Britain and Ireland has allowed an acceleration of this process. The visit of Britain's Queen Elizabeth is all part of it.

Students! Our education is under attack!

Date:

Every year the so called “free education” that is our right, costs us more and more. If the proposed rise in registration fees goes ahead , it will mean many currently enrolled in college will have to drop out and college will simply not be an option for many of the next generation of potential students. All because the politicians are attempting to make the public pay for the mistakes of a small class of wealthy individuals. Many of us are up to our necks in debt, many more live in poverty. Due to the economic downturn, the job prospects when we graduate are poor and those of us lucky enough to find work will be taxed heavily to pay the banks’ and speculators’ debts.

IBEC dinner protest - Let’s talk about socialism

Date:

A few hundred people took part in a protest last night at the Mansion house in Dublin where the Taoiseach Brian Cowen was going to dinner with the organisation of the domestic section of the capitalist class that instructs him. As various bosses and Cowen went into the venue protected by ranks of Gardai, with the riot squad on standby outside the back entrance of Anglo Irish Bank and mounted police across the road, they were jeered by the crowd with shouts of 'thieves', 'robbers' and 'scum.'

Anti-education cuts leafet to distribute

Date:

As part of the growing struggle against education cuts WSM branches have produced a leaflet that is being distributed by anarchists who study or work across the education sector. We’re working together to build a democratic and open campaign that can fight education cuts, challenge the imposition of fees and push to improve access to, and quality of, education. You can help by downloading the leaflet and distributing it at education protests or at local schools and colleges.

The economic crash and the attack on education

Date:

The world seems about to end. The markets are convulsing, the banks are tumbling, the entire island is about to become some sort of black hole off the coast of Europe.

Never fear though, we’ve got a brilliant political establishment to shepherd us through the economic wilderness, and in the Budget on Tuesday 14th they revealed their master-plan, carefully crafted, as Mary Hanafin said, to ‘protect the vulnerable’. Unfortunately, it seems like they’ve got a different understanding of who exactly ‘the vulnerable’ in Irish society are.

Thousands of Students Protest against Fees

Date:

On Wednesday 22 October, something over 10,000 students marched in the centre of Dublin to protest the proposed introduction of fees. The student members and supporters of the WSM were in attendance and distributed thousands of leaflets which discussed the origins of the attack and argued that students will need to build a mass movement across the education sector to defend and improve equality of access to education.

在日本與其他世界所有的地方

Date:

毫無疑問,在日本與其他世界所有的地方一樣存在兩個充滿矛盾的境界相衝突著。一邊是八國集團, 地球上最強大的政府們。加拿大,法國,德國,日本,英國,意大利,俄羅斯和美國。另一邊是其他成千上萬的普通百姓,這些普通百姓們很大部分是這些國家的公民。

八國集團首腦會議的決定您和您的孩子將生活在什麼的世界裡。在他們那些關起門的會議中,他們決定了我們的環境要為商業利潤犧牲,我們的健康服務開始減少跟私有化,數以百萬計的人每天繼續因為沒有乾淨的水和基本的醫療服務而死去。

八國集團首腦會議將計劃的指示國際貨幣基金( IMF )和世界銀行,會以通過“結構調整方案”再次削減更多花在的教育和保健的經費。據trocaire “南撒哈拉非洲每天仍然需要支付3,700萬美元的債款,因為強大的負債缺少資源,同時間每年有 7百萬兒童死亡” 。這就是八國集團主導的新自由主義(或自由市場)專政的結果。

在1998年,世界20 %的人口生活在最高收入國家裡,其消費支出佔了全世界的86 %,而世界人口中最貧窮的20 %,其消費支出只佔了全世界的1.3 %。而這樣的情況只是越來越糟,在30年前,最窮的20 %人口的總消費事實上佔了2.3 % 。
