The refusal of Dublin City Council to deny the Dublin Suicide Prevention Project with a tiny grant for an educational information leaflet from the recent council community grant awards has been described as “pathetic” by award winning suicide prevention campaigner Wayne Flanagan Tobin. Director of the Dublin Suicide Prevention Project (DSPP) Flanagan Tobin has secured many services for communities as far back as 2008 when he was instrumental in obtaining a Suicide Prevention Officer for Dublin-Mid Leinster with his then group “Wicklow Against Suicide” and has achieved many awards for his work in Dublin including the South West Inner City Network (SWICN) last October for his voluntary work.

Speaking of this mornings events Joe Higgins TD who has been in the process of visiting the various Garda stations where the public representatives are being held said:

“The arrests of AAA TD Paul Murphy, councillors Kieran Mahon and Mick Murphy and a fourth person who remains to be identified to us as we go to press is a cheap attempt to denigrate and weaken water charges movement as we approach make or break time – bills coming out and need for mass non-payment. read full story / add a comment

In 2012 public opposition forced the ditching of a plan for a "retirement village" on the side of the Dublin mountains, isolated from services and public transport and cut off by the M50, in an area normally zoned for agriculture and public amenity and widely used by the public. A previous plan for a private school on the site had been rejected for similar reasons in 2005. After the 2014 local elections the plan came back in a lightly tweaked form, with the developer's sister among a number of newly elected councillors supporting the project. A proposal to amend the development plan to include this project is due to be voted on this Tuesday evening, February 10th. Meanwhile some interesting shenanigans have developed. read full story / add a comment

The rhetoric by the Sinn Fein, the Anti Austerity Alliance and the People Before Profit Alliance featuring on RTE's Prime Time programme amounts to nothing but illusion. Their election candidates showed no understanding of the need for revolution. Their rhetoric suggested that capitalism can be managed or reformed to the benefit of the working class by effectively taxing the rich and not the working class. Indeed the entire show confined itself to suggestions as to how to reform capitalism in one way or another. In that way the participants sought to effectively defend the capitalist system. Essentially all contributors were essentially advocating bourgeois politics. If the Socialist Party and the Socialist Workers Party were genuinely revolutionary they would have challenged RTE and its other contributors by advocating the need for revolution. read full story / add a comment

Comrades,

Yesterday, we held a very successful meeting in Dublin in solidarity with the antifascist resistance, and the brave people of Ukraine under constant threat from the fascist Kiev regime.

Once proceedings got under way we were connected through a skype call to a surgeon who gave us all an account of what was going on in his region, and in his hospital. One of the main things he emphasised was the need for money and medical supplies, and how there are another 3 hospitals in the region too were medical supplies need divided around between them. We were also connected to 3 other citizens in Ukraine who all gave harrowing accounts of the situation there. Indeed, it was a very emotional and moving meeting for all concerned.

We had a great contribution from the floor too with such questions raised as to how we can all help, and how we can combat against the lies being spun by the media.

We would also like to take this opportunity to thank the Communist Party of Ireland for the use of the venue, and everybody for making the meeting possible, during this critical time in Ukraine. The process of launching a campaign in support of the antifascist resistance in Ukraine has begun, but again, we need all of your support to make it work.

Solidarity to the People's Republic's, Solidarity to the Antifascist Resistance in Ukraine! read full story / add a comment

Gerry Conlon's speech in full, filmed by Dave Donnellan at Trinity College Dublin, in solidarity with Chelsea Manning and her family. With introductory song 'Giuseppe Conlon' by Joe Black.

Dave Donnellan writes:

"On the 29 November 2013 an event was held in Trinity College Dublin to mark the visit of the family of Chelsea Manning to Dublin. During the evening Gerard Conlon gave a speech that nobody who was there is ever likely to forget. It was Gerard Conlon at his best: fiery, courageous and compassionate. May he rest in peace."

An Spréach, meaning The Spark, is a small housing action group formed due to the housing crisis in Dublin and beyond. We aim to use and develop tactics to highlight the appalling housing situation faced by many ordinary people throughout Ireland. We seek, through the use of direct action, to liberate vacant housing as a campaigning method and as a means of providing accommodation for those in need. read full story / add a comment
