I come from a long line of savers, women and men who believed that a rubber band or piece of string or jar lid should not be thrown away as it will come in handy some day. The fact that being a saver meant full drawers and stuffed shelves didn’t dissuade us, nor the fact that because of the clutter we couldn’t find the thing we saved when we finally needed it. Saving is ingrained. In our case, saving is almost genetic. Recycling was an easy concept for us. “Waste not. Want not” Recycling is just a more communal variation on saving with the advantage of no clutter.

From the UCC Student's Union debate board:

I'm not going to vote for a president who doesn't mention equality issues in their manifesto and I'm sure I'm not the only one - Paul McAndrew"

From Richie (one of three candidates): Quote:
"Sorry paul, what do you mean by equality issues?"

From me: Quote:
"tackling barriers faced by students with disabilities, LGBT students, Muslim students etc"

From Richie: Quote:
"Well of course That's important, however i believe that it is not as important ascatering, printing or the library. If you want equality prioritised over these issues then perhaps you should vote for mariel. They are part of my goals but they are not my number one priority" read full story / add a comment

At The Shell Oil Petrol Station in Blackpool, Cork
cork / anti-capitalism / news report Friday November 11, 2005 00:16 by KD   image 2 images
About thirty people protested tonight at the Shell Oil Petrol Station in Blackpool, Cork to mark the anniversary of the Shell Oil sponsored execution of the Ogoni activist Ken Saro-Wiwa. The protest was called by Cork Shell To Sea to mark the ongoing resistant and bloody struggle by the Ogoni people in Nigeria against the Shell Oil Corporation. It also aimed to promote the link between the ongoing struggle against Shell Oil in Rossport in Mayo and the international activities of the Shell Corporation which in the case of the Ogoni lands has led to huge environmental damage, resource robbery and repression at Shell’s behest. A huge banner proclaiming Nigeria 1995-Mayo 2005 was hung over the front of the Shell Station. Gardaí were in attendance but did not intervene. read full story / add a comment
