the ruling classes were using to bind the working class to them in an ever
tighter form of voluntary submission.
* Liberia: The myth of humanitarian intervention
Every so often the newspapers fill with stories of a crisis in some
third world country. We see pictures on our screens of gunmen, starvation and
suffering; inevitably we hear calls for humanitarian intervention.
* Review: NEFAC web site
Overall, an excellent, well laid out, up to date site from NEFAC and a
fine addition to anarchism on the "inter-web".
* Mutual Aid
Mutual Aid is the fuel an anarchist society will run on. It is also what
keeps capitalist society going in spite of all the hardship, greed, and
exploitation that exists.

In this issue of our magazine, we continue our tradition of dealing with
the pressing issues of the day for anarchists and libertarians

As we go to print, the bin charges battle has started in earnest in
Dublin with Fingal Council's attempt not to collect non-payer's bins.

Just as combining against the bin tax or against the war makes us

After being beaten on every front and with non-payment still remaining

tactic of non-collection of the rubbish. This morning there are eight
different trucks which are blockaded into various estates in the north Dublin
area known as Fingal
* Successful first bin truck blockade in Stoneybatter [with pics]
The anti-bin tax campaign in Stoneybatter took its first action today
when it blockaded a bin truck just off the Oxmantown road. The truck was

Numbers and caution disappointing &endash; hopefully more resolve at
local meetings
* Cabra activists blockade bin truck [with pics]
All bins are still being collected in Cabra (and the Dublin city area)
but we felt it was important to send a message of solidarity to Fingal
activists and also send a warning to the council that we were prepared for them.
* Massive anti-bin tax meeting in Cabra
The decision to flex the muscle of the campaign by this action was taken
on Monday night at a meeting in Cabra. The massive meeting of between 500 to
600 people took place in St. Finbarr's GAA Club.
* Bin tax protesters lobby at depots
Yesterday Fingal council attempted to start refusing to collect the bins
of those who not paying the bin tax. This morning the campaign in the Dublin
city area swung into action. Our first move was a lobby of the depots that the
trucks leave from each morning

non-collection of bins in the Ringsend area of the city. Anti-bin tax
activists mobilised to blockade the trucks to force them to collect all the bins.

Fingal campaigners. Our intention is to hold onto at least one of these two
trucks all day.

Child Campaign today attempted to break up the successful press conference of

* Five years after the last Class War
Five years since the Class War Federation tried to encourage new
developments in the anarchist movement by winding itself up M.H., who was
involved in Class War at the time, asks what problems still remain for us and why.
* Class War - still going five years on
In 1997, some members of the Class War Federation tried to wind the
organisation up. They intended issue 73 of Class War to be the last. Not all
members agreed with this in 1997 (the federation and paper still exist in
2003). Here, Paul Marsh of London Class War gives an altogether different account.
