A New World In Our Hearts
We can build on the lessons of Spain and bring about a new revolution – and next time we won’t be beaten!

Spinning Democracy
Corporate Public Relations, and it’s close links to government, is perhaps one of the most potent factors in curtailing meaningful democracy.

Review: The Gama Strike DVD
For almost a year Turkish workers at the multi-national construction company Gama waged a struggle to secure trade union rates of pay, improved working conditions and to reclaim wages .“The Gama Strike: A victory for all workers” is an attempt to document and highlight the exploitation and subsequent struggle faced by the Turkish workers.

A Bigger Slice For Dominos Workers
The threat of strike action at Domino’s Pizzas in Naas saw SIPTU members secure substantial pay increases

Slaves May Not Leave Their Masters
The number of soldiers absconding from the British Army has trebled since the invasion of Iraq

Thats Capitalism!
Stories of the greed and corruption of capitalism

Anarchism And The WSM 
What the WSM was up to in the summer of 2006

Thinking About Anarchism: Anti-Imperalism
In modern times, imperial invaders always claim that their invasions are for the good of the people who they are invading. They claim that they want to bring civilisation, democracy or freedom to the natives

The Importance of Spain
Today a social revolution that took place seventy years ago is remembered by libertarian socialists as an example of how our ideas can work. The Spanish revolution came closer to realising the possibilities of a free stateless society on a huge scale than any other revolution in history.

WSM Supports Direct Action Against RAYETHON
On Wednesday August 9th anti-war protesters in Derry stormed into the local plant of US missile manufacturer Raytheon

Jury Frees Anti-War Sabateurs
Five peace activists have been acquitted of all charges in relation to their disarming of a US navy plane at Shannon airport in February 2003.

The New Middle East
Although shocking, Israel’s actions in Lebanon and the Occupied Territories are not that surprising. Collective punishment and overwhelming military force targeting civilian populations, in direct contravention of international law and the Geneva conventions, is a well established Israeli military tactic.

Tough at the top
I wonder am I alone in thinking, when presented with a collective picture of career politicians smiling on the steps of the Dail, that the elected members of that house might have difficulty finding their arse with both hands. It is little wonder that the grinning gombeens are smiling like a cats after a bowl of cream.
