includes healthcare, education, housing, water, waste management and other 
basic services usually run by government agencies.

Are anarchists violent?
There is a lot of nonsense turning up on TV, radio and in the newspapers, 
which tries to make anarchism little more than another word for violence. 
In reality anarchists are no more violent than anyone else

The Battle for Kinsale
The Old Head of Kinsale in Co. Cork is an area of renowned beauty. It has

western Europe are opposing capitalist globalisation. It does this by doing 
what the mainstream media will not, giving them a voice.

Why Mick O'Reilly was victimised
He has been a thorn in the side of the Irish government and the Irish 
Congress of Trade Unions (ICTU) bosses, being the only member of the ICTU 
executive to consistently oppose the 'social partnership' deals.

That's Capitalism
More on the bosses crazy world
