Working people continue to bear the brunt of the economic recession in terms on job cuts, poverty wages and house repossessions, while the rich and powerful in our society are bailed out again. This is state capitalism and comes under various forms from thatcherism to neo-liberalism.

The Belfast Anarchist Communist Discussion Group, set up by the Belfast branch of the Workers Solidarity Movement recently invited Michael Reinsborough to give a talk on the topic of neo-liberalism.

Independent Workers Union understands that the cuts we face are part of a global attack on public services. The response must also be international and hence we have invited Susan Rosenthal, Canadian Physician and author of ‘Class, Health and Healthcare’ here from the International Health Workers for People Over Profit and support her efforts to form a local branch of the organisation. Susan is inviting health workers and members of the public to discuss how we can organize a local and international fight to defend health services.
