Many thanks to Alan of Irish Election Literature  for forwarding the following to the Archive – part of a collection of new documents we’ll be posting up in the next weeks and months.

This poster is the first printed material from Working Class Action to be added to the Archive. Working Class Action was extremely active in the North Inner City of Dublin from the late 1990s through to the 2000s on a range of issues including those against Bin charges. Members of WCA were also involved in Anti-Fascist Action.

Cieran Perry, now an Independent left-wing councillor, ran for WCA at the 2004 local elections, as did local activist Joe Mooney. Any other materials from WCA gratefully accepted.
