Alan MacSimoin a long-time Anarchist activist Part Two.

This is the story of Alan MacSimoin a long-time Anarchist activist who joined as a young man the Official Republican Movement (Sinn Fein). MacSimoin was central in the Murray Defence Committee in 1976-77 to stop the state execution of Anarchists Noel and Marie Murray for the killing of a member of the police. He was a founder member of the Workers Solidarity Movement in 1984.

Given over 40 years of political activism he gives his analysis on the current crisis within capitalism, also the lack of a response to the Palestinian struggle from western governments. Alan is currently involved with the Stoneybatter and Smithfield Peoples History Project and the Stoneybatter Against The Water Tax campaign.
