A revolution has taken place in the 3 Kurdish cantons of northern Syria that has significant libertarian characteristics. It has survived despite an intense assault by ISIS and the hostility of the Turkish state. We will have a panel on what is happening that will include participants from the region
Winning Environmental struggles in Ireland
How can we build an active and confident movement to defend the natural environment? Alan MacSimoin and Polly Wolf will discuss past and present environmental struggles in Ireland in order to see what the challenges and possibilities are.
Community Debt and Development Workshop
The aim of the participatory The Irish Debt Crisis - What Happened? workshop is to raise awareness on events that took place in Ireland from 2008 until now, relating to the banking crisis. Much of the emphasis is on the Anglo-Irish Bank story and it is framed within an understanding of social justice – we think what happened was unjust and we want to reverse it. Co-ordinators: Tracy O’Brien; John Bissett (Spectacle of Defiance and Hope)
What we have learnt from the Irish Banking Inquiry with Conor McCabe
"The events of September 2008 continue to exert an influence on Ireland today. A key part of the Banking Inquiry is to look into the causal and relational dynamics which led to the crisis and to the blanket guarantee as solution. This talk will look at what we've learnt so far from the evidence presented to the inquiry committee, and the key lines of inquiry which have emerged from it."
Grassroots Alternatives in Greece, Spain and Ireland
Anarchists from these countries will discuss the possibilities, limits and future of social movement resistance and what role anarchists can play within them.

Free, Safe, and Legal: Challenging Pro-Choice Values Workshop
What we talk about when we talk about abortion. While debates about abortion continue in the public sphere, millions of people are forced to hear their own lived experiences discussed and analysed by those who have little direct experience with abortion themselves. In this workshop we seek to challenge people's understanding of abortion beyond those extreme and publicised cases.
Defending the Amazon, Defending Life
Andrés Sacanambuy will discuss the extractive economy in Putumayo, the ramifications of recent Free Trade agreements and the ongoing defence of the Amazon rainforest as a vital pillar for the whole planet and as a source of hope and life for future generations. Andrés Sacanambuy is a representative of the Regional Front of Social Organisations of Putumayo, Baja Bota Caucana and Cofanía Jardines de Sucumbíos de Ipiales Nariño, a regional network of over 50 peasant, indigenous, workers, women and youth associations.
Parents in activism
The Parents in Activism workshop will be a child-friendly event, at which children of all ages are welcome, and will look at the challenges faced by parents in activist circles, particularly those parents faced with a number of other oppressions already.
Celebrate People’s History!
The Stoneybatter & Smithfield People’s History Project and the East Wall History Group are not just local history societies. They both recognise the political importance of putting working class history firmly on the record and challenging the capitalist and nationalist interpretation of how Irish society evolved. Members of both groups will talk about their work to date and will discuss with the audience the necessity for similar initiatives in other parts of Dublin and the rest of the country. At a time when many Irish working class people are defying the government on the water charges, it is vital to remember and learn from the lessons of the past, including the stories of so-called ‘ordinary people’.
