offsite link The Real Cause of Britain?s Economic Woes Thu Sep 29, 2022 17:39 | Philip Pilkington
The economic turmoil of recent days was triggered by a budget announcement. But the root cause is high energy prices and now that the Nordstream pipelines have been sabotaged, there's no way out.

Of course there will be a new great depression, writes Andrew Montford. Twenty years of vandalism of the energy system was only ever going to have one result, and will not be fixed in a hurry.

Onwards and upwards for Dublin ÓSF

category national | education | press release author Saturday October 17, 2009 20:27author by Daithi Byrne - Ogra Shinn Fein Dublinauthor email dublinogra at gmail dot com Report this post to the editors

Dublin Ógra Shinn Féin are set to become the most active society in Dublin's universities. Hundreds of new applications to join were made over the last month at freshers events. Ógra Shinn Féin socities were represented in the following unversities;

* Trinity College
* University College Dublin
* Dublin City University
* Griffith College
* Dublin Institute of Technology

Sinn Féin flags were hoisted and freshers packs handed out to applicants who signed up in their droves. A high quality newsletter, DVD on the history of the republican struggle, stationery and a copy of the proclamation were included in the packs. Application figures have surged since last year, signalling a rise in political awareness among students opposed to fees and other policies introduced by the shambolic government. Asked about the attraction to Ógra Shinn Féin, one student stated that she wanted to be active in the campaign against fees and the general ineptitude of the Fianna Fáil/Greens. Another student stated that Ógra Fianna Fáil were "ran like dogs" from a freshers event in DCU. Ógra activist Daithí Byrne commented on the surge in applicants;

"Students are saying they attracted to our radical politics and activism displayed over the years in Dublin, most recently the anti-fees campaign. They aren't satisfied with the 'all talk no action' policy of other opposition groups like Young Fine Gael."

Paddy Daly, Dublin college co-ordinator commented on the successful freshers campaign; "This has been a huge success for us with people genuinely interested in getting involved in republican politics and activism. The priority for me will be to build a new college structure for Dublin ÓSF and organise events such as protests that will put us on the map."

After a spectacular freshers recruitment drive, Dublin Ógra Shinn Féin are putting education/introduction to Sinn Féin high on the agenda, which will include one to one meetings with each applicant. Anti-fees will also be high on the agenda for the coming weeks.

Joining Sinn Fein is certainly a good career choice for youths with high aspirations. They have a bit to go yet as far as image is concerned, although che guevara imagery is quite chique and is a good selling point.
Overall their friendly attitude towards business and their steadily growing list of contacts within the global commercial sector would make them highly recommendable to young go-getters.
