In looking towards our rethinking and relaunching, we are inspired by the scale of popular struggles, from movements and communities, in Ireland and internationally. This year we have seen the massive upsurge in community-based protest against the water charges together with the extraordinary levels of mobilisation for marriage equality. We are heartened by the ongoing activism evident in many other campaigns, communities and movements. Internationally the battle against austerity in Europe and for climate justice are coming to a head. It is becoming clearer than ever that changing the world depends on people’s extraordinary capacity to educate, agitate and organise, and we look forward to working out how we can best support and help develop this through a radically different kind of activist education.
