The Celtic Tiger has imploded. The capitalists and their politicians in Ireland and internationally say there is no alternative but to make the working class pay. TINA, that is There Is No Alternative, TINA, is back again. This was a powerful propaganda weapon that Thatcher and her international allies used in the past. Convincing the working class that there was no alternative. TINA.
The opinion and analysis explained here exposes this for the lie that it is. It explains a concrete alternative. TIAA. There Is An Alternative. TIAA. IThis alternative is to make the rich and the corporations which caused this catastrophe pay. TIAA.
This piece also explains the need for any alternative to address the consciousness of the working class and how this consciousness is not yet convinced that it itself, that is the working class, can actually run things themselves. It explains the need for a practical achievable alternative for which the working class can fight. ... read full story / add a comment
It may come as a surprise to union members but the government and the trade union general secretaries have now revealed that further pay cuts are in fact provided for under the provisions of the Croke Park agreement.
The Irish Independent of 23rd October reported that the department of finance "is strongly considering reducing wage levels for all new recruits to the public sector by a flat 10pc in the Budget". See this link:

Working class people throughout Ireland are suffering deep anxiety. With poverty, homelessness and unemployment escalating, the feeling is that we are on the edge of a phenomenal disaster.
That sense of dread has been exploited by a government bent on even more savage attacks on public spending. We had been told previously that we were facing €3 billion in cuts this December. Now it is certain to be much more. A new four year economic plan is to be imposed aimed at reducing the economic deficit to 3% by 2014. So there could be up to €7 billion in cuts this December, with more to follow. This will mean increases in taxes, in particular the introduction of taxes on the low-paid. It will also mean unprecedented attacks on health-care, social welfare, child benefit, pensions, education and just about every area of social provision. ... read full story / add a comment
In 1973 the democratically elected Allende government which was trying to improve conditions for the Chilean workers and peasants was overthrown by a US backed dictatorship. The thug Pinochet was put in power. It slaughtered tens of thousands of workers and peasants. Pinera the President of Chile we see with his phony grin and his brother were backers of the dictatorship. We need to reach out to the miners to help them use their worldwide fame and strength to organize an international tour to organize the organized and to build solidarity with all workers. ... read full story / add a comment

As once again Cork's mainstream trade unions declined to publicly celebrate the everlasting memorial day to working peoples' struggles worldwide, it falls to Solidarity Books/Workers Solidarity Movement Cork Branch and the Independent Workers Union to mark this most important of days. A day of public talks and a community meal was organised by the local branch of the WSM at Solidarity Books, which complemented excellently the annual May Day march through the city streets this evening organised as usual by the Independent Workers Union. ... read full story / add a comment
