Commentary From The Cedar Lounge Revolution

9th September 2019

Many thanks to the person who forwarded this to the Archive.

This edition of Anarchist News is the second in the Archive. Produced by the WSM, as the Archive notes:

The Workers’ Solidarity Movement was established in 1984 by a number of small anarchist groups and unaligned individuals who sought to establish a national anarchist organisation. It has taken active roles in several campaigns, notably for abortion rights and against water charges in the 1990s. It publishes the paper Workers Solidarity and the magazine Irish Anarchist Review.

It engages direction with racism against both asylum seekers and Travellers and argues:

A tough anti-racist, working-class based campaign under a slogan such as ‘All different, all equal, all exploited’ is needed.

There’s also a page long history of Anarchism and Anti-Racism.

    Am I right in thinking that the WSM is more or less moribund these days?

    In reply to pettyburgess.

    I’m absolutely open to correction but it does appear to have a much lower profile than it did in the fairly recent past.
