offsite link Pfizer Sponsors Marvel Comic Urging People to Get Jabbed Fri Oct 07, 2022 17:30 | Toby Young
Pfizer has partnered with Marvel to produce a comic urging people to get their autumn boosters. This kind of propaganda, sugar-coating state-approved messages, used to be the preserve of communist regimes. Not any more.

Denmark has ceased Covid vaccination for most under-50s, but the UK has not, meaning it is offering vaccines to 32m additional, low-risk people at a potential cost of £1bn. This is an utter waste of scarce public funds.

Think about people who've been tellers of truth. Very often, they were retired. They wrote for an independent website or Substack. They don?t have bosses or career paths. It?s only these people who will say what?s true.

Ógra Shinn Féin Easter Message 2009

category national | rights, freedoms and repression | press release author Tuesday April 07, 2009 12:38author by Irish Republican Youth - Ógra Shinn Féinauthor email osfnational at yahoo dot ie Report this post to the editors

In this the 93rd anniversary of the 1916 Easter Rising, Ógra Shinn Féin remembers proudly all those who died for the freedom of Ireland. We send fraternal greetings to our imprisoned comrades, their families and the families of Ireland’s patriot dead. We also extend solidarity greetings to our international comrades, in particular, pledging our ongoing support for the oppressed people of Palestine who have stood steadfast in the face of a brutal massacre.

As we gather throughout Ireland this weekend, commemorating our Patriot dead, it is important that we re-commit ourselves and increase our efforts to achieving an Irish Republic.

There are significant tasks that lie ahead, building a progressive left movement for change, send another resounding no to the Lisbon Treaty and advance the Peace Process.

The economy is in critical downturn, and the 26 County Government have demonstrated their inability to effectively deal with this crisis, the people of Ireland demand a progressive movement that can implement a programme of change that stays true to the 1916 Proclamation.

By building a left movement for change across Ireland, we can also reverse the budget cuts, in particular on education, and any contrived decision to introduce student fees. There has been no better time to build such an alliance, and we are committed to making it a success.

Last year the Irish people stood up for the over 500 million citizens across the EU who where denied a vote, and rejected the Lisbon Treaty. Young people in particular played a significant role in this, voting in massive numbers for a social Europe and against Lisbon.

The undemocratic, and disgraceful decision taken to re-run Lisbon, must be responded to by a convincing no vote. The time and resources wasted should have been spent getting a better deal for Ireland in Europe. We commit ourselves to playing our part in ensuring the Lisbon Treaty is rejected and we urge others to do likewise.

The peace process has ensured massive progress in our republican project, and ensured a positive transformation to society and young republicans can now express and pursue their republican goals in an open democratic manner.

The orange state has been smashed, republicans and nationalists are no longer second class citizens, and more and more people are supporting a United Ireland everyday, popularised through our community activism, and demonstrating quality leadership in the Assembly, Leinster House and councils across Ireland.

Huge progress has been made and further progress will be made on outstanding issues by remaining focused and united in our actions.

2009 is a milestone year in Irish republican youth history, marking the 100th anniversary of the first Republican Youth Movement, Na Fianna Éireann.

Na Fianna, founded on Lower Camden Street, Dublin on 16 August 1909, demonstrated the bravery, energy and ingenuity of young republicans throughout its existence, playing a key role in the Easter Rising, and training many young republicans into important leadership figures in the freedom struggle.

Na Fianna proved time and again its commitment and dedication to achieving an Irish Republic, with many young Fians paying the ultimate sacrifice in pursuit of our Republican objectives.

In all 54 Fians died fighting for an Irish Republic, and we honour their commitment, and pledge to fittingly commemorate their legacy throughout this year, educating a new generation of their actions, and inspiring the Irish youth of today to take up their task, to achieve and build a Free, Democratic, Socialist Republic.

We appeal to all young republican men and women to play their part in the struggle, by joining Ógra Shinn Féin. We are the generation who will make the Irish Republic a reality.

Béirigi bua!

Teachtaireacht na Cásca – Ógra Shinn Féin

93 bliain i ndiaidh Éirí Amach na Cásca in 1916, cuimhníonn Ógra Shinn Féin le mórtas agus le bród orthu siúd go léir a d’éag ar son saoirse na hÉireann.

Gabhann muid beannachtaí dlúthpháirtíochta d’ár gcomrádaithe a bhfuil i ngéibhinn, a dteaghlaigh agus teaghlaigh tírghráthóirí marbh na hÉireann.

Anuas ar sin, gabhann muid ár mbeannachtaí dlúthpháirtíochta d’ár gcomrádaithe i gcéin, ach go háirithe na Pailistínigh, agus treisíonn muid leo a sheas an fód in éadan áir fhuiltigh.

Agus muid ag cruinniú ar fud na hÉireann an deireadh seachtaine seo, ag cuimhniú arn ár dtírghráthóirí mairbhe, tá sé tabhachtach do ndearbhaíonn muid ár n-anam athuair agus go méadaíonn muid arn ár n-iarrachtaí le Poblacht na hÉireann a bhaint amach.

Tá dushláin suntasacha amach romhainn, gluaiseacht na heite clé ar son athraithe a thógáil, diúltú cumhachtach eile a thabhairt do Chonradh Liospóin agus dul chun cinn sa phróiséas síochána.
Tá spealladh iomlán tagtha ar an gheilleagar agus tá míchumas an rialtais ina leith léirithe go soiléir, éilíonn muintir na hÉireann gluaiseacht fhorásach a bheas in ann tuilleadh athruithe a chur i gcrích agus a chloífidh le Forógra 1916.

Frí gluaiseacht chlé ar son athraithe a thógáil ar fud na hÉireann thig linn na ciorruithe cáináisnéise a chur ar chúl fosta, go háirithe san oideachas agus aon chinneadh suarach taillí ollscoile a thabhairt isteach. Níl am ar bith níos fearr ann le haontacht den chineál seo a thógáil agus tá muid tiománta le go n-eireoidh leis.

Anuraidh sheas muintir na hÉireann an fód do bhreis is 500 milliún saoránach ar fud na hEorpa ag a raibh vóta séanta daofa agus dhiúltaigh do Chonradh Liospóin. Bhí ról lárnach ag an lucht óg san éacht seo, méideanna ollmhóra acu a vótáil ar son Eorpa sóisialta agus in éadan Liospóine.

Caithtear freagairt don chinneadh mídhaonlathach náireach Liospóin a ath-reachtáil trí vóta diúltuithe láidir. Ba chóir gur úsáideadh an t-am agus na hachmhainní a bhí curtha amú fá choinne conradh níos fearr d’Éirnn san Eoraip. Dearbhaíonn muid ár n-anam lena chinntiú go ndiúltaífear do Chonradh Liospóin agus impíonn muid ar chách ár sampla a leanúint.

Chruthaigh an Próiséas síochána dul chun cinn ollmhór sa tionscnamh poblachtach againne agus chruthaigh athrú dearfach iomlán d’ár sochaí agus thig le poblachtaigh óga anois a gcuspóirí poblachtacha a chur in iúl agus a leanstan.

Tá cliste ar an Stát Buí, ní saoránaidh den darna grád poblachtaigh agus náisiúnaithe a thuilleadh agus tá níos mó agus níos mó anois ag tacú le haisling na hÉireann Aontaithe, curtha i mbéal an phobail trín ár ngníomhaíocht phobail, agus ag lériú ceannasaíocht den scoth sa tionól, i dteach laighean agus i gcomhairlí ar fud na hÉireann.

Tá dul chun cinn iontach curtha i gcrích agus tá tuilleadh le theacht ar cheisteanna suntasacha trí fanacht dírithe agus aontaithe in ár ngníomhachtaí.

Cloch mhíle atá sa bhliain seo i stair an óg-phoblachtachais Éireannaigh, céad bliain i ndiaidh bhunú na chéad gluaiseachta poblachtaí óige, Na Fianna Éireann.

Ba iad na Fianna, a bunaíodh ar Sráid Camden íoctarach, Baile Átha Cliath ar an 16 Lúnasa 1909, a léirigh crógacht, fuinneamh agus intleacht na bpoblachtach óg frína bheith ann, a bpairt lárnach san Éirí Amach agus go leor poblachtaigh óga a oiliúint le bheith ina gceannairí tabhachtacha sa streachailt ar son na saoirse.

D’fhíoraigh na Fianna arís ‘s arís eile a ndílseacht agus a ndíograis i leith bhaint amach na poblachta, b’iomaí Fian a chuaigh ar shlí na Fírinne sa tóir arn ár gcuspóirí poblachtacha.

Ina iomláine fuair 54 Fian bas ag troid don Phoblacht agus onóiríonn muid a ndíograis agus gealann muid comóradh ceart a dhéanamh ar oidhreacht ‘sacu i mbliana, oideachas a chur ar ghlúin nua faoina ngníomhaíochtaí agus óige an lae inniú a spreagadh go nglacaidís lena ndualgas, Poblacht Shaor Dhaonlathach agus Shóisialach a bhaint amach agus a thógáil.

Imíonn muid ar na poblachtaigh óga uilig, idir mhná agus fhir, glacadh lena bpáirteanna sa streachailt frí dul le hÓgra Shinn Féin. Muidine an ghlúin a chuirfidh an Phoblacht i gcrích.
