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

The fourth Grassroots Gathering happened at
University of Limerick on the St. Patrick's bank
holiday weekend. It was a glorious weekend of
weather and once again I came away from the
experience of meeting fellow activists with
renewed vigour for the struggle. The Grassroots
Network has succeeded in creating a space for
non-hierarchical libertarian groups and
individuals to gather and share information and
conduct workshops on various tactics used.

Saturday consisted of various workshops,
including ones on Palestine, Gender, Non-violent
direct action, Protesters v police, and what to do
when you get arrested (Keep stum).

The next day was taken up with some feedback on
the Gathering and on the child of the Gathering
known as GNAW (Grassroots Network Against
the War). Then in the afternoon the meeting
turned contentious as a number of proposals were
discussed and amended in a short space of time.
This was necessary to attempt to get the GNAW
functioning officially in a delegate based manner.
I think that a general lack of organisation and
time constraints made this the most difficult part
of the weekend. It was also not the best way to
end the Gathering. People stayed on planned
forthcoming actions against the war.

Once again thanks to the people in Limerick who
hosted activists from all over the island, provided
some wonderful food and put up with us. The next
Grassroots Gathering will take place in June in
Dublin. Watch this space for details.
