Public Meetings: Cutbacks? Fight For a Real Alternative


The Workers Solidarity movement, an organization of anarchists in Ireland, will host a talk on the economic crisis, its causes and the anarchist alternative.

As capitalism yet again drags us all into a crisis we’ll discuss why this keeps happening, why capitalism has always been and always will be unstable, and the effect that this insecurity has on all of our lives.

The Workers Solidarity movement, is hosting a series of talks on the economic crisis, its causes and the anarchist alternative.


When: Wednesday the 3rd December 2008 at 8pm
Venue: Teacher’s Club, 36 Parnell Square West, Dublin 1. (See map below)


When? Wednesday, 3rd December at 8pm

Where? Victoria Hotel, Patrick St., Cork

We’ll talk about how the elites say they’ll solve our current crisis – the G20, Bretton Woods, more regulation or more of the same – and why none of it will stop the boom and bust cycle from happening again. What can stop it is ordinary people taking back control of their lives from the bankers, the property developers and their politicians.

That’s the anarchist alternative. We want a stable and secure society where our elderly and our children don’t have to go on marches to get healthcare and education, and where our young people aren’t bogged down in debts that will take a lifetime to repay. We want to leave the next generation with a system that works, with a real democracy.

As capitalism fails us again, more and more people are prepared to work together to fight for a better society. We’re angry about the banker’s bailouts and the cutbacks we suffer to pay for them. Anarchists are fighting back alongside the students, the pensioners and the workers, and we want to do more. If you want to fight for a real alternative then come along to one to the Teacher’s Club and talk to us.
