Press release: Anarchist Organisation to join anti-Budget protests and calls on workers to organise for a general strike

Anarchist organisation Workers Solidarity Movement (WSM) has confirmed its intention to join the protests against Tuesday’s budget at Dáil Éireann.

Speaking today, Gregor Kerr, WSM P.R.O. said that members of the organisation would be joining the 1% Network protest meeting at Wolfe Tone statue St Stephen’s Green at 5:30p.m. and marching with them to participate in the protest at the Dáil at 6p.m.

“What is taking place behind the gates of the Dáil on Tuesday is unfair, unjust and just plain wrong,” said Mr. Kerr. “The decision that will be taken to further impoverish ordinary people and further attack our public services in order to protect the interests of the wealthy elite must be opposed.”

Calling on workers to get involved in building for a general strike to halt the attacks on our living standards, Mr. Kerr continued: “100,000 people marched through the streets of Dublin last Saturday week to express their opposition to the government’s austerity programme. It’s not enough to express that opposition and then go home. The opposition must be built in every workplace and in every community. Whether economic decisions are being made by this government, by the one which replaces it, by the IMF or the European Central Bank they can only do what we let them. Our biggest weapon if we want to bring about fundamental change is our ability to withdraw our labour. The wealthy elite in whose interest society is currently run do indeed have all the political power. But nothing would function for them without us. They need us to work in their businesses, they need us to keep the wheels of society running by providing a health service, education service etc.”

“That’s where our power comes in,” concluded Mr. Kerr. “Imagine a situation where all of us together – public and private sector worker alike – stop working. Imagine the feeling of collective strength that would give us. Equally imagine the message that would deliver to our current rulers. A general strike organised across all workplaces would be a first step towards a re-construction of society in our interests rather than in the interest of a tiny greedy minority. Building for that general strike is the task facing every one of us who oppose the thrust of current economic policy.”
