Dorset Green Community Fair took place over the weekend and provided a welcome alternative to the war junkie attraction of the annual Bournemouth air show, where, a source reported there was a large military presence engaging in a dubious attempt to convince Joe Public that state terrorism is a good thing and it may be worth their while packing their kids off to some remote foreign field just to get them back in bits in the state approved body bag(s).

The usual suspects from the reformist tendency were in attendance pushing yet more discredited ideas to persuade visitors that you can reform capitalism and deal effectively with the ecological crisis. Can't be done.

After the shambles in Brighton we now know the Green Party are no better than any other political party when it comes to any idea of a radical solution to the ecological nightmare about to befall us all. The bottom line is they are just tories on bikes (Boris Johnson x many by any other name).

Probably the stall that had the most impact was the launch of the newly formed Dorset Group of The Industrial Workers of the World and their Environmental Unionist Caucus (

A large number of visitors were attracted to this exhibit looking for new ideas and  the tired old message of ride a bike and continue the ongoing oppression of the international working class.

The delegates from the IWW gave a small thought provoking talk on Saturday that went down well and interest in and actual membership of the IWW received a much welcome boost.

There was also a welcome presence of the Dorset Peoples Assembly raising awareness of the fracking operations about to befall Swanage and there was excellent cooperation between the IWW and DPA exhibits which enabled the DPA to put on a stunning presence on the Saturday.

With thanks to Sam Monks for providing an excellent location and for her unstinting hard work in putting the festival together

If you have issues at work and are interested in joining one big union that organises across all trades, grades, the unemployed and long term benefits claimants as well as having a radical solution to ecological issues through true workers democracy please email

The IWW has no paid office bearers, will not try to sell you cheap insurance or other irrelevant rubbish, is organized from the grass roots up and your subs won't be used to pay 6 figure salaries to General Secretaries and other office bearers so that they can drive nice big fancy cars, live in nice big houses and win derisory small victories for their members. The IWW is not aligned to any political movement so you can be sure part your subs wont be hi-jacked to fund political parties that just want to continue the austerity program (and get you to pay for it).
