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

In December 2021, the WSM announced it was disbanding.
