Welcome to the Gluaiseacht newsletter! We're hoping to have editions out every two or three months or so from now until the fall of capitalism! Inside you’ll find articles on some events Gluaiseacht took part in and events coming up soon are listed. Also some info and insight from some of the many community campaigns starting up around the country.

Gluaiseacht is a non-hierarchical environmental and social justice movement bringing together grassroots organisations, concerned individuals and student groups from all over Ireland to raise awareness and take non-violent direct action on social, environmental and political issues.

We’re a diverse group, a loose campaign and skills network who share the same vision of a truly democratic and sustainable society. Gluaiseacht is a member of the Irish Environmental Network. We gratefully acknowledge their support over the years.
