(en) Britain, Freedom* Octoberr 2011 - DERRY AND BELFAST ANARCHISTS

Date Mon, 12 Dec 2011 16:20:40 +0200


Helen Harris, Derry anarchist remembered ---- On Saturday 24th September family, friends and comrades of Helen Harris gathered, on what would have been Helen’s 40th birthday, for an evening of chat, music and food in celebration of her life. On 13th May of this year, Derry had lost one of its finest daughters, following a lengthy battle with cystic fibrosis. Helen Harris was without a doubt an inspiration to many who knew her, a friend and comrade who had the privilege and opportunity to travel alongside of her during the 39 short but eventful years of her life. Helen was a radical, a feminist and anarchist. ---- Helen believed that fundamental change was necessary to build a more just and equal world and this commitment was evident in her work with the Pat Finucane Centre, Foyle Ethical Investment Committee and her activism on the issues of women political prisoners and the arms trade.

Through her research, her publications and her interviews on the role of women in the prisoners’ struggle, Helen made an important contribution and her research material remains invaluable, as many of the women whose stories were included are now dead. Most recently she was instrumental in the formation of Women Activists for Social Justice.Women a network of women in Derry and Donegal concerned about social justice and the future of feminism in Ireland.

Belfast Anarchist History
Historian Mairtin O’Cathain’s ‘Wee Black Booke’ has now been added to Workers Solidarity Movement online archive for you to read or download. In it he pulls together reports of anarchism in and around Belfast in the years from 1867 to 1973. With no local movement for much of this period, the pamphlet looks at some individuals whose political activity merited mention in the media of the time. O’Cathain’s work stops before the emergence in the late 1970s of the groups from which contemporary anarchist organisations Workers Solidarity Movement and Organise! can trace their roots.
