(en) Ireland: Workers Solidarity #87 now online

Date Wed, 27 Jul 2005 18:01:04 +0300

Workers Solidarity No.87 is now online, contents as below.
* People Power Confronts Shell
The jailing of 5 Rossport men for refusing to allow Shell to install a
potentially lethal pipeline has suddenly focussed attention on the whole
project. But it has done more than highlight safety issues. It has highlighted
the cosy relationship between business and the Irish State.

* Dangerous Men Loose in Dublin
Garda Brutality : Business As Usual with the death of Donegal man Richie Barron
and other cases

* Found: CAZ and Barracka Books share premises
New radical spaces in Cork city - The Cork Autonomous Zone (CAZ) and Barracka
Books, a workers' co-op.

* Gama Workers' Strike Wins Back Stolen Cash
The striking Gama workers got back the part of their wages which had been
stolen by their employer and hidden in a Dutch bank; and at the end of May they
voted to accept terms relating to overtime. A big bullying multinational
construction firm had manners put on it.

* Review: 'Anarchism & Environmental Survival' by Graham Purchase
The book sort of falls between the polemical and academic stools. It's too
short and under referenced to be truly academic yet lacks the bite and poetry
of good polemic. That said there are some new and fairly fascinating ideas

* Irish Ferries Fly The Jolly Roger
Agencies like CF Sharp Crew (which was Salvacion's employer by the way) have
been used by shipping companies for decades as a device to drive down sailors'
pay, and to take the blame or legal responsibility for horror stories like
Salvacion's . They operate in countries where labour laws are so unfair and so
weakly applied that they facilitate this robbery from
labour by ruthless profit-seekers.

* The G8, Live 8, and Africa - Taking Hypocrisy to New Levels
There is always a temptation to welcome any well intentioned efforts to make
the world a better place and those who concentrate on criticising others'
efforts to improve the world can find themselves being easily dismissed as
cynics and knockers.

* That's capitalism
Includes Money for Bertie's make-up, Money for Bankers, Money for Management,
Money for Nothing but No money for starving children

* Anarchism and the WSM
Recently, members of the WSM have been agitating with the Dissent network in
Scotland against the G8. We're also involved on a more local basis, from the
"stand up for your rights campaign" aimed at unionising unorganised workers,
anti-racism, and trade union struggles.

* Thinking about Anarchism - Social Revolution
Anarchists often talk of the 'Social Revolution' as the event which will
destroy hierarchical and exploitative institutions, thus opening the way to
living our lives according to our desires.

* INTO Branch Opposes Tactics Of Deportation Cops
The Dublin City North Branch of the INTO has passed a motion endorsing the call
by outgoing union president, Austin Corcoran, that all schools become safe
places for all children -to be given the status of embassies. It is hoped that
more branches within the union will take up this issue and that by next year's
annual congress a campaign will be launched in the union to make this a reality

* Man Deported Because Of Garda Brutality Cover up
In the early hours of May 19th Michael Alabi was deported by the Irish State.
Michael was resident of a hostel in Lower Gardiner street and was part of a
group of Nigerian men who decided to go on hunger strike to protest against the
department of Justice's draconian immigration policies.
