Cork Grassroots Gathering

The second Grassroots Gathering was held over the Easter weekend in Cork. Some seventy people from all over Ireland took part. Areas represented included Cork, Dublin, Limerick and Belfast as well as a scattering of other counties including Kildare, Kerry, Clare and Sligo.

The Grassroots Gatherings are regular events for libertarian activists to network, exchange information and plan for the future. This gathering included activists involved in Gluaiseacht, Workers Solidarity Movement, Reclaim the Streets, Dublin and Cork anti bin-charges campaigns, Anarcho-Syndicalist Federation, Cork Autonomous Zone, Reclaim the Glen, Anarchist Federation, Sellafield bike tour, West Paupa support group, Shannon anti-war refueling and quite a few more.

It met in the Cork Autonomous Zone, a space a number of Cork activists have come together to create. The day ended with a general session which agreed the next Gathering will take place over the October bank holiday in Belfast. Next morning dozens of people from the Gathering joined in the Old Head of Kinsale protest.
