The latest issue of Red and Black Revolution is now out
In this issue of our magazine, we continue our tradition of dealing
with the pressing issues of the day for anarchists and libertarians,
and for all who are seriously interested in bringing about a new
society. We carry articles by a member of the North Eastern
Federation of Anarcho-Communists in relation to the future of the
Black Bloc, and another by a member of Doctors For Choice on
abortion rights (or the lack of them!) in Ireland.

We look at one of the most successful periods of anarchist
history - the Spanish revolution - and, specifically, at how the
workers' collectives in Spain were organised. Their success and
the success of anarchism at that time remains a beacon of hope
for the future. Another article argues that, if we want to create
socialism it will have to be based on voluntary co-operation, not
State power

One of the consequences of capitalist globalisation and of the
'War on Terror' has been a further tightening of border controls as
Western governments build more and more barriers against the
free movement of people. While anarchists are obviously opposed
to all forms of immigration control, we don't have all the
arguments to answer the fears and worries of working class
people when the right wingers issue their dire warnings about
'floods' and 'waves' of immigrants coming to take all our jobs and

Islamic fundamentalism has emerged as the new 'bogeyman' and
the excuse for the aggression of Western governments in their so
called 'War on Terror' in the wake of the September 11th attacks
on the USA. The response of large parts of the left to the
fundamentalists has been to adopt a 'softly softly' approach. In an
article here, however, we argue that our enemies' enemy isn't
necessarily our friend. We also take a look at the Irish anti-war
movement during the 2003 gulf war. We carry two articles; one
concentrates on the direct action movement, while the other looks
at the political failure of the leaders of the mainstream anti-war

If you want to create socialism, it must be based on freedom.
