We the 99% of ireland, demand a sovereign republic, free of corporate control. We demand control of all natural resources within our land and sea borders. We demand a setting up of a non-usurious national bank, printing debt-free money and acting as a utility for the people only. We demand a court system acting under a natural system of law which mirrors the Brehon system of our ancestors. We demand all corporations be held accountable for all serious breach of the law. We demand all men/women on this Island have access to the freedoms that were the original intention of the creation of the Republic. read full story / add a comment

Eoghan Harris destroyed Gay Mitchell's campaign by advising him to launch a reactionary blueshirt assault on Martin McGuinness. See:
Gay Blueshirt Mitchell becomes Eoghan Harris's candidate
Never a man to allow sentiment to delay him, Harris switched at the last minute to the one reactionary he thought would win, Sean Gallagher. Just like in 1997 when 'tribal time bomb' Mary McAleese won, the Harris touch turned to dust.
Higgins will win and Martin McGuinness will elect him on transfers - the worst of all Harris worlds. Higgins lifted Section 31 censorship restrictions on Sinn Fein in 1994 and paved the way for the peace process and Sinn Fein electoral advance. Harris hated all of that. read full story / add a comment

Reformists clash with the revolutionaries for years on the methods of struggle against capitalism. The first group is criticized for its strategy of building a new society step by step. Revolutionaries say that it will never happen because real liberation requires radical action and confrontation with the enemy. But reformists say that revolutionary methods are based on short-term changes that lead to violence and it is never possible to predict the outcome of the revolution. read full story / add a comment

#OccupyEyreSquare: Public Awareness Day, today 1pm
Come along to hear some key speakers on issues relating to the economic MESS we are all facing! This will be a day of solidarity with Occupy protests taking place in over 1600 cities worldwide. Come and show your support and have YOUR voice heard. Live music, refreshments and fun to be had as well!
Occupy Galway is part of the international movement against austerity measures imposed on ordinary people around the world. We are all part of the 99% who, so far, have been subject to economic inequality and social injustice from the 1% who control the world's resources. We, the 99% demand:
1 - The removal of the IMF and ECB from all Irish financial affairs;
2 - That the national debt imposed on Irish people from the bank bailouts be lifted;
3 - The return of Irish resources (gas, oil, forestry) to the people of Ireland;
4 - Real particpatory democracy.
THIS IS NOT A RECESSION, IT'S A ROBBERY!!!

This text was written by Madrilonia, a Madrid-based blog that writes about and participates in social movements. Madrilonia has been involved in the 15-M movement, which began with the mass protest organized by Real Democracy Now on the 15th of May 2011 and inspired Europe with the occupation of plazas across Spain. This text imagines a new form of strike across Europe and the Euro-Mediterranean region, a strike which is up to the task of confronting contemporary forms of exploitation and control.

The police killing of Mark Duggan resulted in four nights of rioting across England. The immediate trigger was the killing itself, and the disrespect shown by the police to Mark’s family and friends. But the riots rapidly broadened to expressions of a more general anger and alienation; an anger that was all too often unfocused and striking out at the nearest target of opportunity. This resulted in widespread destruction of resources in already deprived neighborhoods and some anti-social attacks on bystanders. Despite this, the roots of the riots lie in the economic and political conditions of these districts, and not in ‘poor parenting’ or ‘mindless criminality’. These conditions were created by the very politicians and business elite who now call for a return to normality and repression.read full story / add a comment
