Date Fri, 8 Sep 2017 11:19:49 +0300

The WSM will be at this years Belfast Anarchist Bookfair at the Catalyst Art Gallery, come along to our stall - one of over a dozen, see below - to pick up some good anarchist reads from Ireland and to say hi. ---- 10th Belfast Anarchist Bookfair ---- Catalyst Arts ---- Ground Floor, 5 College Court, BT1 6BS Belfast ---- 9th September 2017 1pm - 7pm ---- Talks, workshops, discussions: ---- 1.00pm Abolish Prisons; ---- "Mass incarceration is not a solution to unemployment, nor is it a solution to the vast array of social problems that are hidden away in a rapidly growing network of prisons and jails. However, the great majority of people have been tricked into believing in the efficacy of imprisonment, even though the historical record clearly demonstrates that prisons do not work." Angela Davis. Panel with Joe Conlon, Joanne Donnelly (JFC2), Sean Dubh (Derry Anarchists, WSM, IWW) and Manchester No Prisons.

2.15pm The Worms Who Saved the World;
Kevin Doyle on his childrens book with a radical message. Based on the very real campaign for public access to the Old Head of Kinsale.

3.30pm The Spectres of Loyalty: History, Memory and the Moral Economy of Loyalty;
Dr. Christopher J. V. Loughlin Did the Ulster Unionist Party create a ‘monolithic regime' in Northern Ireland? Were the ‘linen lords' of Belfast bourgeois or aristocratic? And what impact did class politics, labour and antisectarianism have on the regime constructed in the province? Using the manuscript to be published by Palgrave MacMillan later in the year, this paper will discuss the ‘moral economy of loyalty' in Northern Ireland, 1921-72, the history of loyalty on the islands and the contemporary spectres of loyalty.

4.45pm The Life and Ideas of Michael Bakunin;
Tony Zurbrugg Bakunin was a contemporary of Marx, propagator of Anarchist Socialism and an active promoter of the International Workers' Association (IWA). Ultimately clashing with Marx and the authoritarian wing of the international Bakunin argued for International workers' solidarity, change involving rural and industrial workers, and a Libertarian or Anarchist form of Socialism with federated accountable democratic organisations responsible to the grassroots. The editor of the recently published "Bakunin: Selected Texts 1868-1875" talks about the life and ideas of often, unjustly, maligned Mikhail Bakunin.

6.00pm Syndicalism in Ireland;
Capitalism is bringing the world to the brink of extinction while goverments everywhere, even "left" governments, prove time and again that they are the lackies of the bosses. Our panel looks at the anti- and non parliamentary alternative offered by syndicalism. Panel with Jason Brannigan (Organise!), Dek Keenan (IWW) and IWU.
