The WSM have published the seventh IAR! The Irish Anarchist Review is the political magazine from the Workers Solidarity Movement.  This magazine will explore ideas and practical struggles that can teach us about building a revolutionary movement today. They “decided to cease printing Red & Black Revolution, and start this project, aimed at provoking debate and discussion among anarchists and the left. For this purpose, we will be pursuing a non-sectarian approach, taking ideas from various left currents, mainstream discourse, and reflections on experiences of life and struggle. We will take, print, and discuss, anything that we find useful for our needs. We hope that readers will have a similar attitude, and will use the magazine to discuss, debate and develop ideas. We will also welcome submissions and responses to articles.

Pick up a copy in Seomra Spraoi.

It has become clear over the past 6 months that the real powers in Ireland are the IMF/ECB along with the wealthy Irish elite. Anarchists have always argued that ordinary people cannot vote our way out of our problems. Real change comes from organising at work and in our communities. No matter who gets voted in the wealthy remain in charge, and this is why we say that the elections are a dead end for change, and that real democracy isn’t ticking a box once every five years.

More information on the election 2011 and an anarchist perspective on it can be found here.
