Radical politics of the late 1960s, 1970s: Marxists, anarchists and Saor Eire
What looks to be a very interesting public meeting on the above subject is taking place at 7.30pm, on Thursday evening, September 12 in the Cobblestone Pub, 77 Kings Street North, Smithfield, Dublin 7.
This event will commemorate the Irish left-republicans groups of the 1960s-70s. There have been many, usually distinguished by their small size and anti-imperialist views on the Irish national question and a commitment to workers’ power. Through the politics of the national question, these groups occasionally reached beyond their small numbers, cultivating the tradition inspired by James Connolly who argued that the national question is also a social question.
Alan MacSimoin (longtime class-struggle anarchist and ex-Workers Solidarity Movement)
John McAnulty (former People’s Democracy Belfast City Councillor)
Following the contributions of each of the speakers, there will be a Q&A session. A number of Saor Eire veterans will be in attendance and will take part in the discussion. These include Frank Keane (who was also a former IRA Dublin Brigade O/C), Des Keane and Liam Sutcliffe.
Charlie O’Neill and Simon O’Donnell have also been invited.
