      A - I N F O S  N E W S  S E R V I C E

Hi folks,

Been busy with a lot of off line stuff hence the 
lack of updates last month.  However just added 
all the material below which includes two PDF 
files, some new Zapatista communiques and a load 
of anarchist material from Britain and Ireland.

As always access via

Workers Solidarity No 73
Latest issue of the Irish anarchist paper

Stop refuelling at Shannon warport
Despite the supposed neutrality of Southern 
Ireland the Irish government has been involving 
us more and more in the imperialist adventures 
of the US military. Shannon airport has become a 
key refuelling facility for US war planes en 
route between the US and the wars in Afghanistan 
and Iraq.

Shannon - Direct Action against the War ? 
Activists on the runway!
Instead of pleading with the government to not 
allow the US to use Shannon, people had acted 
directly to show there would be a price to pay 
and to inspire others to realise that with 
numbers we could make it impossible for the 
government to continue this action.

Stopping the war
While a march of 5,000 or even 10,000 in Dublin 
won't effect government policy, similar numbers 
tearing down the fence in Shannon and taking 
over the entire airport would. With those sort 
of numbers we could physically stop Shannon 
being used and physically dismantle any war 
planes we caught on the ground

Review: Refueling Peace 
A web site with the very specific purpose, to 
"monitor and stop US military flights refuelling 
in Ireland".

Clerical rapists and the Irish state
Given all that we now know about the organised 
cover-up of what happened in Catholic 
institutions, churches and hospitals it is fair 
to say that if any other organised group were 
guilty of the same offences there would be 
charges brought of "conspiracy to pervert the 
course of justice".

Become a supporter of this paper
Over the next year we hope that at least a 
couple of dozen people will become supporters of 
this paper. In that case we will be able to 
expand production to 8 issues a year each with a 
print run of 8,000.

Corruption in politics
The Flood Report will, by itself, change 
nothing, except, perhaps, to induce more caution 
to the thicker element of the ruling class, but 
it does provide one useful service: it makes it 
clear that the wealthy have a dominant influence 
in affairs of state

Libertarians Against Nice: Requiem for a Dream
LAN fought the campaign on many fronts. From 
Limerick to Louth, Kinsale to Kildare, Dundalk 
to Donegal the battle raged. Even in Dublin we 
put up a fight. 50,000 (count 'em) leaflets were 
distributed, hundreds of posters of various 
types went up.

Review: Berlusconi's Mousetrap
In July 2001 over a quarter of a million people 
gathered to protest against the G8 in Genoa. The 
Italian state responded to these demonstrations 
with violent repression. Eighteen thousand cops 
were drafted into the city; they beat and gassed 
thousands of people off the streets, arrested 
hundreds and shot one young Italian man in the 

Review: Anarchism and Anarchist Communism by 
Peter Kropotkin
This is one of the most excellent introductions 
to Anarchism, putting paid to the usual 
objections to the system, synonymous as it has 
become, wrongly, with disorganisation and chaos.

SIPTU election changes nothing
The big lesson from this contest is how weak the 
opposition in SIPTU is. 6.7% is not a good vote! 
There is no opposition network, simply a number 
of individuals who are fairly isolated from each
