News about and of interest to anarchists


What is 'Working Class Resistance'?

Welcome to Working Class Resistance (WCR!)! WCR! is a

new eight page anarchist paper which will be appearing

six times a year from this point on. The next edition

will be ready by early February 2004.

Who are involved with 'Working Class Resistance'?

The appearance of this publication marks the coming

together of the Anarcho-Syndicalist Federation,

Anarchist Federation (Ireland), Anarchist Prisoner

Support and a number of other individuals to create a

more effective and better resourced class struggle

anarchist organisation across Ireland. Together we

have created a new organisation, Organise!, with local

groups and individual members throughout the country.

Some background.

The ASF and AF in Ireland had already collaborated on

two previous publications, called Wildcat, which

presented agreed positions on the trades unions and

the ‘north’. The impetus for the creation of this

organisation goes back to a proposal made earlier this

year asking anarchists to look seriously at building

more effective organisation across Ireland. The

response to this proposal was mixed, but discussion on

moving things forward took place between those who

were most interested in pursuing it and who felt they

had most in common. Our attitude to those class

struggle anarchists outside our organisation is

comradely and co-operative; while we may have

differences, we seek to work to overcome these where

possible and to build stronger links and more effect

methods of working together as part of the process of

building a broad libertarian movement in Ireland. We

will not, on the other hand, shy away from debate and

discussion of differences, but attempt to deal with

these in an open and comradely fashion.

Most importantly, we seek through our activity and

propaganda, through discussion and practical

solidarity with our fellow workers, to show the

relevance of anarchist methods of organising and

ultimately the benefits of a future libertarian

communist revolution for workers everywhere.


A new website should be online in the very near
