PRESS RELEASE - FRIENDS OF THE IRISH ENVIRONMENT - 27 July 2015
The Department of Agriculture, Food, and Fisheries? refusal to release the accident report on the loss of 230,000 salmon in a February 2014 storm has been annulled by the Information Commission, Peter Tyndal.
Minister for Agriculture Simon Coveney?s Department had refused to release the report on the grounds that it was an 'internal communication' and that the public ?interest would not be served by the disclosure?.
In its appeal to the Information Commissioner, FIE claimed the release is ?a matter of extreme public importance not only in the light of the circumstances of the Gerahies incident, but also because of the failure of the Department to carry out its regulatory functions properly in ensuring compliance with aquaculture licensing conditions aimed at preventing the escape of fish.?

...once again that it is impossible to fight against capitalist attacks by the electoral and reformist path
At the end of yet another «historic» marathon session Brussels negotiations between the Greek government and its creditors, a «definitive» agreement has yet again been found to «resolve" the Greek crisis: Greek Prime Minister Tsipras and his team have come to accept as a condition for new loans to the virtually bankrupt Greek government, a plan of austerity measures significantly harsher than he had rejected a week earlier and against which he had, supposedly, held a referendum! The only point where he apparently got something concrete, is that of the reduction in military spending: the creditors have accepted that it is weaker than what they asked for...

The EU has enforced a humiliating surrender on Greece. The Syriza government that was elected to end austerity has been forced to implement it. The meaning of Wolfgang Schauble, the German Finance Minister?s infamous phrase ?we can?t possibly allow an election to change anything? is now clear.
The scale of the brutality is astounding. To take just one example: there will be a ?significantly scaled up privatisation programme? to generate a fund of ?50 billion. This fund will then be effectively controlled by the EU to ensure that bank debt and bondholders are paid off. Up to now ?7 billion worth of privatisation has been pushed through by other governments in Greece.
The Irish government helped humiliate the Greeks. The former Greek Finance Minister, Yanis Varoufakis, has stated that Ireland ? along with Spain and Portugal ? were among his ?energetic enemies?.

Mick Wallace Dail Diary for 10th July
The controversy over NAMA's sale of the Nothern Ireland loan portfolio, Project Eagle, has not gone away. It suited the Government just fine when the PAC said they would bring NAMA before the committee. - It also suited NAMA, whose polished performance was always going to give them some breathing space, given that the PAC, - no disrespect to any of it's members - just doesn't have the wherewithal to hold them to account. Here is a part of my piece on the workings of NAMA from last Tuesday, when we were debating a Housing Bill . -

For the first time, a majority of MEPs (338 to 319) has voted in favour of an http://www.theguardian.com/environment/2015/jun/10/majo...-vote in view of its "risks and negative consequences for the climate, the environment, and public health." The MEPs voted in support of http://www.europarl.europa.eu/sides/getDoc.do?type=AMD&...ge=EN to the Energy Security Strategy report.
However, as the https://www.theparliamentmagazine.eu/articles/opinion/e...pport, the moratorium on "any new operations involving the exploration or extraction of unconventional fuels within the EU until this is proven to be safe for the environment, citizens, and workers" will not take effect.

With accepting the barbarous EU deal, Tsipras betrayed OXI
The die has been cast. The Geek prime minister Tsipras, who won the elections
because of his promise to make an end to Trojka austerity measures, has capitulated,
accepting the hardest EU deal with Greece ever. Shame on him and his party
Syriza, which has lost every credibility. It's a horrible betrayal of OXI, plunging
the Greek people in still worse misery. People of Greece, fight for Freedom!
