An Anarchist's perspective on the Education System in Ireland.

Date:

When the Irish education system is taken into perspective, from preschool to 3rd level, each period of transition is flawed in it’s own way. Strong ties between the church, the state and our primary and secondary schools affect the growth and education of children from the moment they enter the schooling system to the moment they leave.

Education is an admirable thing, but it is well to remember from time to time that nothing that is worth knowing can be taught.

Dublin protest at bogus pregnancy 'clinic'

Date:

Members of the Workers Solidarity Movement will be joining the abortion rights campaign 'Choice Ireland' at a Dublin protest on Saturday August 18th. This will take place outside the Womens Rsource Centre, 50 Dorset Street from 12-1pm.

They are drawing attention to a bogus agency (which has connections to the Catholic fundamental Christian Solidarity Party) which lies to women.

Choice is also calling for regulation which would make it obligatory for pregnancy agencies to declare in their advertising whether the information they give is 'two-option' (parenting and adoption) or 'three-option' (parenting, adoption and abortion).

A woman's work is never done

Date:

I am going to look generally at the issue of woman’s work. Initially a very quick survey of the global position – then some more specific stuff on wage differentials, house work, work conditions, child care in Europe and Ireland with some possible suggestions for some points for our new program maybe to be incorporated into a general section on work.

Quebec police forced to own up to use of agent provocateurs at summit protest

Date:

The day after online footage revealed the presence of police provocateurs at the Montebello SPP summit protest the Quebec police have been forced to admit that the rock wielding men initially confronted for being in the agreed 'family friendly' zone by a union leader were indeed police agents.

The Grassroots Gatherings

Date:

In practice, the Grassroots Gatherings – and groups linked to them – have become the main (and the only continuous) networking of the “movement of movements” in Ireland. To date 10 gatherings have been held between 2001 and 2005. In keeping with the goal of autonomy and decentralisation, there has been no central committee; at the end of each gathering a group of activists has offered to host the next one in their own area and has got on with organising it in their own way, around an agenda set by themselves and with sometimes very different structures and themes.
