WSM activity in mid 2000


The big event of the Autumn was in Prague when the fat cats of the World Bank gathered for a jamboree, and thousands of anti-capitalist protesters took to the streets. In Ireland the WSM helped organise the Carnival for Global Economic Justice which included events in Belfast, Cork, Derry, Dublin and Galway. The following week saw the WSM host public meetings in Belfast, Cork, Dublin (and at the Anarchist Bookfair in London) which were addressed by Vadim Barak of the Czech Organisation of Revolutionary Anarchists-Solidarita and Andrew Flood, a WSM member who took part in the protests. Collections at these meetings raised 700 pounds (about three months of the average Czech wage) towards the legal defence of the 26 people charged with resisting arrest in Prague.

Other recent activities included the publication of a new Cork anarchist bulletin (Circle@), a Dublin video showing about the Mexican Zapatistas, helping to build membership of the anti-bin tax campaign, and fighting against the racist scapegoating of asylum seekers.
