Belfast: Organising for Anarchism

category antrim | worker & community struggles and protests | event notice author Thursday July 09, 2009 12:08author by WSM Report this post to the editors

A day of workshops and discussions organised by the Belfast branch of the Workers Solidarity Movement and the Anarchist Communist Discussion Group.

1pm- The tasks facing anarchists in Ireland

The strengths and weaknesses of anarcho-sydicalism and the relevance of the platform in the 21st century.

The WSM prides itself on the ideas of the platform based on collective responsibility, theoretical and tactical unity and federalism. Why do we identify with the platformist current within anarchism and what lessons can we learn from social revolutions in the 20th century, that can be applied to how we organise in the here and now. Organise! have been invited to send a speaker.

2pm- Beyond the state and capitalism- Organising for a free society without bosses and politicians.

Anarchists do not believe in blueprints but how do we envisage a future classless and stateless society. How would we organise public transport, distribute goods and services, and deal with crime in a post-revolutionary society? What do we mean by workers’ control of industry and services?

These are just some of the questions WSM speaker Gavin Gleason will be answering in his talk and subsequent discussion.

3pm- Combating racism and the rise of the far right.

The recent racist attacks in the North served as a wakeup call to everyone. Speakers from the WSM, include former chair of the Anti-Racist Network, Davy Carlin. The speakers will outline what steps should be taken to combat racism as part of the struggle for a better world for everyone.

Refreshments and literature will be avaliable.

Date: Saturday, 18th July.

Venue: Belfast Unemployed Resource Centre
45/47 Lower Donegall Street, city centre

Over the last few years, we have witnessed the Irish state deploying a huge amount of its resources including the police, navy and air force to construct a Shell pipeline in Rossport in County Mayo. Despite violent repression from Shell security guards and the state, media witch hunts, the local community continues to struggle against the this toxic pipeline which the say is a health safety hazard and offers no social or economic benefits. See http://www.wsm.ie/news_viewer/5736

As the Shell project reaches a critical stage, speakers will outline what we can do to support the struggle in Rossport and the wider question of national resources.

Former chair of the Anti-Racist Network, Davy Carlin is to speak at a day of discussions and workshops organised by the Workers Solidarity Movement and the Anarchist Communist Discussion Group.

WSM spokesperson, Michael McGovern says: “the discussion will focus on the recent racist attacks and what practical steps we can do to combat racism and the rise of the far right.”

Adding: “Racism and sectarianism must be fought on a class basis, rather than depending on our political class.”

Other discussions include the politics of anarchism and what type of society we envisage beyond the state and capitalism. WSM speaker Gavin Gleeson will also be giving an eye-witness account of the community struggle against Shell in County Mayo and the wider question of national resources.

“Over the last few years, we have witnessed the Irish state deploying a huge amount of its resources including the police, navy and air force to construct a Shell pipeline in Rossport in County Mayo. Despite violent repression from Shell security guards and the state, witch hunts, the local community continues to struggle against the this toxic pipeline which offers no social or economic benefits to the area,” according to Gavin Gleason.

The public event will take place this Saturday, 18th June at the Belfast Unemployed Resource Centre, 45/47 Lower Donegall Street in Belfast city centre.
