cork / anti-capitalism / event notice Friday May 01, 2015 - 14:26 by Orla O'Donovan
During the first part of this day-long Thinkery, which will be led by Silvia Federici and George Caffentzis, you will be invited to listen, think and converse with others about anti-capitalist commoning. Based in New York, they are part of an international movement that asserts ‘commons’ can be the seeds of a society beyond state and market. A long-time feminist and anti-globalization activist, teacher and writer, Silvia Federici’s books include Revolution at Point Zero: Housework, Reproduction and Feminist Struggle (2012) and Caliban and the Witch. Women, the Body and Primitive Accumulation (2004). Founding member of the Midnight Notes Collective, George Caffentzis’ latest book is In Letters of Blood and Fire: Work, Machines and the Crisis of Capitalism (2013). An overview of their perspective on the commons can be found in this article http://cdj.oxfordjournals.org/content/49/suppl_1/i92.fu...+html

Learning together about the commons will continue in the afternoon, but here the focus will be on actual and emergent commoning in Ireland. Discussing her work on the radical concept of ‘enough’ and her practical experience of Community Supported Farming, this will include a contribution from Anne B. Ryan. She is the author of Enough is Plenty: Public and Private Policies for the 21st century (2009).

In a context where offshore oil, gas, fish and even seaweed are increasingly being privatised and managed by global corporations, this seminar will address the efforts of small coastal communities to raise fundamental questions about the common good and ownership and care of our coastal ‘commons’. Drawing on their experiences of the Corrib Gas controversy, but also other community struggles in Ireland a further afield, it will be given by film-maker Risteard Ó Domhnaill (maker of The Pipe and currently working on Atlantic) and Rossport farmer Monica Muller. ... read full story / add a comment

cork / housing / event notice Saturday October 18, 2014 - 21:12 by Radical Routes
Radical Routes begin an all-island speaking tour at the end of this month to people to set up their own co-ops. They are presenting this as a way out of both the precarious rental market and the trap of long-term mortgage debt.

The tour will draw on their experience where the Radical Routes network has over 35 member co-ops. They say that "While the legal and financial structures relevant to setting up a co-op are different in the UK and Ireland, the experience learned from establishing these projects in the UK is valuable to anyone in Ireland considering setting up a co-operative and taking control of their own housing situation."

cork / environment / press release Wednesday March 19, 2014 - 21:05 by Friends of Irish Environment
Ahead of tomorrow’s opening of the An Bord Pleanala hearing into the plans for the clean up of the old steel plant’s toxic dump on Haulbowline Island, Friends of the Irish Environment [FIE] has called for the work to be extended to the site of the steel plant itself.

The current proposal is limited to the 9 hectare waste dump on the island.

FIE says numerous reports show that the contamination on the island includes not just the 9 hectare East Tip which is the subject of the license hearing but the 12 hectare site of the steel plant itself which is being ignored. ... read full story / add a comment

'HIstorian Caught in Ambush Row' Justine McCarthy Sunday Times 26 August 2012
cork / history and heritage / other press Monday August 27, 2012 - 14:03 by Justine McCarthy   text 5 comments (last - monday september 10, 2012 - 20:40)   image 2 images
A SON of a war of independence veteran has accused a historian of publishing "untrue and unchecked claims" relating to a disputed IRA ambush in which his father participated 92 years ago.

Edward "Ned" Young was the last known survivor of the Kilmichael ambush, when the IRA killed 17 police auxiliaries on November 28, 1920. His son John Young has described as "palpably untrue" assertions made by Dr Eve Morrison about a phone conversation he had with her last month. Morrison's claims appear to contradict an affidavit Young signed five years ago, in which he denied that his father co-operated with a controversial book about the ambush. ... read full story / add a comment
