IRISH POLITICIANS BETRAY GAZA
Irish political representatives shamefully abstain in crucial UN vote on Gaza

Ireland and 16 other EU countries abstained from the UN Human Rights Council resolution to set up a commission of inquiry into Gaza. Apparently over "concerns that the draft text was unbalanced, inaccurate and prejudges the outcome of the investigation." The resolution was approved with 29 votes in favour, one against (the United States) and 17 abstentions. More details see here
Ireland's ambassador to the UN Patricia O'Brien today said Ireland had
"a very valid reason not to support the resolution."
Yeah right Patricia, and the reason was our masters in the US embassy told us not to vote in favour and our spineless politicians meekly obeyed.

Update 03/08/2014:Just hours after an attack on a United Nations-operated school took the lives of 20 civilians last week, the US announced it would resupply Israeli military with new ammunition to further their campaign on the war-ravaged city. Only several days later, the US Congress overwhelmingly approved an emergency measure to grant Israel $225 million in additional funding to boost the country’s missile defense capabilities. "

UPDATE 12th August: So far Israel has killed over 1949 Palestinians including
449 children. 9891 injured, including over 3000 children.
This count is increasing by the hour.

Another World  is Possible!
antrim / summit mobilisations / event notice Tuesday May 21, 2013 - 19:30 by Ciarán   image 1 image
The amount of money used to bail out failed banks would have ended world hunger for 50 years. This is the world presided over by G8 leaders who meet every year to co-ordinate how to continue failed policies which favour the 'have yachts' over the 'have nots'. We say 'Another World is Possible' and over five days in June our Festival of Ideas hopes to challenge and inspire those who want to fight for it.
