"In asserting the dictatorship of the dollar over the whole world, the ruling class of the united states will introduce the contradictions of the whole world into the very basis of its own dominance. The economy and the politics of the united states will depend more and more directly upon crises, wars and revolutions in all parts of the world." LEON TROTSKY - 1932

On behalf of the Socialist Party, the Irish Section of the CWI, I would like to extend mayday greetings to readers of The Socialist on the occasion of the 30th anniversary of the CWI.
Over the last six months, Ireland has held the Presidency of the E.U., while governments throughout Europe have stepped up their offensive against the jobs, conditions and pensions of workers under the E.U.'s neo-liberal "Lisbon Agenda". However, the past months have also seen workers throughout Europe fight back against these attacks. In Dublin, the campaign against the bin tax and to maintain the refuse service as a public service financed from central taxation saw hundreds of workers mobilise in communities and 22 people go to prison. I would like to thank our comrades and friends in Britain who supported us in this struggle.
I wish The Socialist continuing success in its engagement with workers' struggles against war, imperialism, privatisations and racism and in raising consciousness of the socialist alternative.
Joe Higgins T.D.
