good stuff.

I think little videos like this are a good thing.

Video makers often think they have to make hour long documentaries - but few people want to watch that online, really.

Keep it short and sweet!

Nice to see RAR fighting the good fight - wish i was there :-)

Please never stop. I don't think you will. Because you understand what it is you are doing. And future generations of irishmen and irishwomen will thank you for it. They'll probably put a memorial up. We will mostly not like it ;-) If there are any merchant seamen or ex-maritime workers in the RAR loop, please drop me an email :- iosaf[at] We're working on maritime issues now in Barcelona with the "assembly of no papers" and various other groups and individuals. & extra case reports, individual experiences, & any sort of information on maritime worker issues and shengen maritime visa law with Dublin treaty exceptions- will be very very welcome indeed. I always feel the need to direct people here - and particularly to the map on internment camps in the comments to that article.

Asylum seekers have an obligation under international law to go to the nearest possible (practical) safe country, given Irelands geographical location in very few if any cases would Ireland be the nearest practical safe country to get to for anyone claiming genuine asylum. Irelands location and border protections mean that these "asylum seekers" (or asylum system abusers) must spend weeks, months if not years planning to get here, which doesnt really fit in with their tales of fleeing for their lives.
Hence Ireland has no legal or moral obligation to take in these supposed "asylum seekers"

As for future generations of Irish people building monuments to you, I don't see aboriginal Americans or Australians celebrating those who collabarated in turning them into minorities in their own countries leading to their current plight, and I can't see future generations of Irish people doing it either. Although a high percentage of you don't seem to be Irish anyway.

Omega Supreme,
there are more people in American of Irish Ancestry than Red Indians and I am aware a lot of Irish men and women still rush to live in Australia.Please try to be objective in your submisssion.

almost ready - the english version of a documental movie first screened at the 2005 OVNI festival at Barcelona's CCCB on the occupation of the Cathedral and Church of the Pi by unregularised migrants June 5th and june 6th (the week of the Trinity in Christian liturgy the action saw the real left clash with the new "left regime" by locking-in almost 2000 mostly muslims in the two symbolic places of worship) to demand complete regularisation from the then newly empowered "leftwing" regime which thought voted in 2 years ago today, needed another month to get the "keys and seals".
If anyone wants a copy of this documentary for organisational and activist purposes / showing : send me a message & we organise it a.s.a.p.-
