It has been announced that the Salthill Air Show for 2008 has been cancelled. Organisers attribute the cancellation to difficulties in raising commercial sponsorship, something they blame on the campaigning of the Galway Alliance Against War (GAAW). Potential business sponsors, evidently, do not wish to be associated with something as controversial as this air show. read full story / add a comment

The Israelis are deepening the cellar further with the Weapon of Mass Starvation; following Israeli cutoffs, the UN World Food Program now reckons that; "Food imports into the Gaza Strip are only enough to meet 41 percent of demand". Against such an obscenity and pleading guilty to what Martin Amis terms a "distorted sympathy" towards the agony of Palestine http://books.guardian.co.uk/news/articles/0,,2221615,00....html Galway IPSC, yesterday, took to the streets for seven hours to protest.

The ghosts and spirits of the millions of women who have been murdered, violated, oppressed, excluded, driven into exile, denied freedom of speech, denied participation in any decisions concerning their lives, because of war, religion, race, culture, age, disability, sexuality, poverty, bonded slavery, domestic violence or bureaucracy, glided in and out of the shoppers of Galway on Friday afternoon, the 7th of December. read full story / add a comment

Yesterday evening, the Galway Bin Charges Campaign comprising outraged members of the public, activists from the SWP, SP, Sinn Fein and Galway Alliance Against War vented their anger outside and inside Galway City Council buildings against a proposal that, if adopted, would amount to a front frontal assault on the city's poor, thankfully, conscience prevailed, as such, GBCC wholeheartedly applaudes the city councillors for successfully defending the full waiver on refuse charges at the Budget 2008 meeting on Monday night.

Dette Mc Loughlin (SWP), spearhead of the campaign group said it was admirable, decent and right that councillors across party divides stood firmly against the proposed attack on the waiver system.

A public meeting is to be held in Galway in December to discuss the opening of a cultural and social centre in Galway.

A number of local charities and community groups have been invited to the meeting and the organisers are hopeful that it will gain support among these organisations.

United States Ambassador to Ireland, Thomas C. Foley, gave a talk defending US foreign policy to a public meeting of the NUIG Law Society Wednesday evening.

Yesterday, Galway Food Not Bombs in its ongoing campaign to attenuate the slaughter and war mongering of this world fed people for free in Shop street rather than murdered them with bombs. However, based on Fareed Zakaria opinion, next Sunday's banner will read; Tranquillisers Not Bombs : "the American discussion about Iran has lost all connection to reality. . . . Iran has an economy the size of Finland's. . . . It has not invaded a country since the late 18th century. The United States has a GDP that is 68 times larger and defense expenditures that are 110 times greater. Israel and every Arab country (except Syria and Iraq) are . . . allied against Iran. And yet we are to believe that Tehran is about to overturn the international system and replace it with an Islamo-fascist order? What planet are we on?." http://counterpunch.org/moayedian10272007.html

Yesterday, Galway Food Not Bombs were at it again in Shop Street, this time beneath the shelter of green canvas, sporting a freshly painted flourescent banner and augmented with three new activists.

From our tentative start some months back, we are now riding the crest of a wave of goodwill; from the city's Community Wardens who no longer harrass us, to the plethora of shops who, in empathy, donate not unsubstantial amounts of food to us every Saturday evening. read full story / add a comment

Yesterday, Galway Food Not Bombs offered fresh organic vegetarian food to Galwegians again. But what's even more important, new ideas were realized and more activists recruited in the form of Gala, a FNB activist from New York city and Qanita, a Pakistani woman, living in Galway, who after contacting us, kindly showed up with her own home-cooked traditional Pakistani food and two young sons to dispense it. Qanita was pleased and excited with the idea of Food Not Bombs and promised to join us every Sunday. read full story / add a comment
