gone and did a union organising page in the wiki finally, but it's a 1am effort and more than open to contributions & criticism Show more
considering the months of planning, you'd have thought The Independent Group would at least have bought a domain name lmfao 😂

@CornishRepublicanArmy @scottishwobbly @GreenandBlack The movement for Irish independence was the convergence of many strands of left wing movements in Ireland at that time - tenants' rights, women's rights, trade unions and Socialists. Which is why a reading of the constitution of the first draft of the Irish republic sounds like something from a Socialist state. Like many left-wing independence movements it was co-opted by right-wing Nationalists who adopted the guise of being the true "anti-Imperialists" while simultaneously pushing for a rollback on women's rights and public enslavement the Vatican. They became more concerned with creating an Irish* state than a Socialist one.

This split is looking worse than the SDP one, and I don't think the working class in this country can take another 10 years of the tories, we're going to have to build the extra-parliamentary labour movement fast
@CornishRepublicanArmy @scottishwobbly @GreenandBlack This is exactly how I feel about Sinn Féin, they call themselves a Socialist party but they're perfectly content with implementing austerity in both Irish jurisdictions. There's something to be said about the institution of parliamentary politics creating the role of the "opposition" that's actually quite cushy and is an incentive against rocking the boat. I think there are many SF MLAs, MPs and Teachtaí Dala and SNP MSPs and MPs who are quite happy with the their statutory paypackets.

"The third pillar is that you don't allow fascists to have PRESENCE in the institutions and organizations of the civil society. You don't allow them to come into the trade unions, in the cultural clubs, in the musical milieu, or in to the football matches. This is very very important, because if you allow them to appear there, you LEGITIMIZE them. You don't discuss with them. You say, YOU ARE AN ENEMY AND I DO NOT ACCEPT YOUR EXISTENCE."
This is why, contrary to what mastodon.social reply guys may think, Russell's letter is so important. It refuses to legitimize the horrific views of fascism, by treating them sincerely. If you have a platform and you give it to an fascist, even to try and "debate" or have "dialogue" with them, you are no antifascist. You are giving them a platform to fascist ideas, and you like them, must be stopped.
When a fascist tries to claim a public space as their platform you shut them down.
