The Irish Anti-War Movement (IAWM) is a front for the Socialist Workers Party and is used to recruit members whilst also trying to ge SWP-IAWM spokesperson Richard Boyd Barrett elected. Various left wing groups initally involved with the IAWM left after seeing how the SWP dominated meetings and offical roles. The IAWM, wrongly in my opinion, offer unconditional support to any group that opposes US imperialism, regardless of what policies or beliefs those groups have. They are...a bunch of eejits using anti-war sentiment to increase their own political capital.
Interesting Gaz thanks
don't go taring everyone who is anti-war with the same brush now :). Eveytime IAWM post something on indymedia they get absoluely slaughtered by other competent lefties for their actions, the way the SWP take over and dominate campaigns, unconditional anti-US support etc. They regularly form fronts like IAWM and the People Before Profit Alliance(PBPA), all with Richard Boyd-BArret as their spokesperson (they're trying to get him elected) Heres some linkshttp://irishantiwar.org/bboard/q-and-a-fetch-msg.tcl?msg_id=0001oU&topic_id=Irish%20Anti-War&topic=http://struggle.ws/wsm/rbr/rbr7/iawm.html
