The Trinity College Branch of the Free Legal Advice Centres (FLAC) has organized a conference for March 8th around the title, “Poverty, Social Exclusion and the Law”. Speakers at the conference will deal with issues ranging from the interrelation of poverty with crime and educational disadvantage to the plight of travellers and refugees and the ideological content and function of law in modern bourgeois democracy. This conference will be of particular interest to those within Irish society concerned with tackling the cancer of social exclusion, so every organization and party should make an effort to be in attendance.

The 'socially excluded' are as much a product of the system as are the golden circle of gombeen men who reap the reward of corruption. Their only form of public accountability is to appear before these endless tribunals where their lawyer friends further enrich themselves at public expense. Welfare for the rich and criminalization for the poor.
