A new moderated discussion forum for anarchists in Ireland has been launched as part of anarchistblackcat.org, a growing global anarchist project that a number of WSM members are involved in. The forum is open to anarchists and those interested in anarchism across the island and those elsewhere interested in events in Ireland.
Online anarchist and libertarian discussion in Ireland has taken a wide number of forms over the years with the most successful experiment probably being the old yahoogroups Irish anarchism list which at one point had over 400 subscribers and over 100 posts a month. But with the decline of the use of email lists and their replacement with forums there has been no one place where most anarchists in Ireland felt comfortable posting to. There have been a variety of both public and private forums and lists used by different sections of the movement, this new forum is not intended as a replacement to any of these but rather as a spot where all anarchists on the island can come together for respectful online discussion.
We hope you come over and join in the discussion at http://www.anarchistblackcat.org/viewforum.php?f=40 where you will already find discussion on Lisbon, the raytheon 9, RAG, the north and the Irish elite.
