Just back from the high court where 12 named protestors were injuncted for blockading bin trucks. Although I wasn't in the courtroom myself, I did talk to several people who had been inside and their interpretation of events was uniform. The 12 undertook not to do the same again and the judge ruled that they had purged their contempt. The city council also sought to make their injunction permanent against blockading. Surprisingly the judge turned this down. read full story / add a comment

The Greens: Waging Class War On Behalf Of The Rich.

The Green Party stated today that it does not support the position of the Socialist Party on refusing to pay service charges. However, Green Party Leader Trevor Sargent, TD stated, “We support financial incentives and the use of reasonable volume levies to encourage waste minimisation, re-use, recycling and composting for householders and the commercial sector alike.”

This gobbleiegook translates as Green Party support for a flat rate tax. It doesnt matter if you are a bin collecter or Sir Anthony O'Reilly, the Greens want you to pay the same rate of tax read full story / add a comment
