People all over the world are fighting fracking you just won't hear that much about it in Irish media. This week after violent attacks from the police a few weeks ago, First Nations tribes people of New Brunswick, Canada, continue their battle to protect their children's health, water and land against fracking.

Mehr reported that Gen Jamali-Paqaleh was killed "in the recent days"

In the spirit of Internationalism and Anti-Imperialism, General Jamali-Paqaleh died fighting the lackeys of US Imperialism and Zionism. Brig Gen Mohammad Jamali-Paqaleh of the Revolutionary Guards was buried with full honours in Kerman.

He had volunteered to "defend the Syrian people against terrorists" and "protect the [Shia] holy shrine of Sayyida Zainab" outside Damascus, the semi-official Mehr news agency said. read full story / add a comment

On the 9th of July 2012, Judge Treacy ordered Martin Corey’s immediate release from political internment without trial, stating his human rights had been violated in British Occupied Ireland. This was overruled by the unelected English Viceroyal who ]ordered the internment of the Irishman, against whom there is no evidence of wrongdoing, that could possibly lead to charges in a court of law. read full story / add a comment

Not only should abortion be legal but it also is well worth arguing that having children should be made illegal (as in a crime). Now here is a statement even most sleeping Americans would agree is a radical proposition (so radical in fact you almost never encounter it). And yet it is a very practical and sane proposition, even to its extreme, logical outcome, that is allowing our very own human species to become extinguished (as in extinct). After all the ecological system of this world doesn’t need the human species and would undoubtedly be better off without it. Why would a baby want, for example, to be born into a world of global warming? Or why would a baby want to be born into a world of diminishing resources, in respect to the perpetually growing world population?

Global ethical human rights will give the Lost generation of Youth a future. It really is a macabre understanding of peace and human beings when it is seen that only absolute control to crush potential is the way to achieve peace. In fact, in my view, it creates slaves and dangerous States which are not held to account. read full story / add a comment

Despite all the cultural and religious indoctrination (and presumption) to the contrary, to be born Homo sapiens onto this planet, even in these modern times of materialist comfort, is still far too much a curse. Of course no one will tell you you’ve been condemned to a life of questionable worth and meaning, albeit with plenty need to toil for one’s un-mitigating desires. Rather its expected you’ll inculcate the accepted lies, such as how precious life is, in general, as it is always presumed to be—and never question its ordained status or sacred value. Conditioned are you then to think you “should” be grateful for having been born into this human mess (more properly referred to as the insanity of humanity). read full story / add a comment

I couldn't help but notice, the difference in one of Ayman Al Gilmore's old parties alternative budget and his government's budget today. He is obviously a me feiner, riding the Irish working class and feeding off old comrades wounds but then that's the story of Ireland, isn't it? The Labour party have no shame have they? They are an obvious gang of fatbarsturds, who people are stupid enough to vote for and are prime meat for a revolution! Anyway here's a summary: read full story / add a comment

The victims of Abu Ghraib torture sued, in a US court, the private company, CACI, hired to do the torturing. They lost. Brazenly CACI counter sued the victims in the same court and WON.
The Abu Ghraib victims now have to pay their torturers 14,000 dollars in costs. Ridiculous! read full story / add a comment

My favourite people, are often called prostitutes and whookers, which seriously worries me. Am I one as well ? Is that why I copy and paste so much, hoping there are plenty of socialists out there? Anyway the best whookers in the world come from Galway, when you climb into them, they are the best ride in the world. read full story / add a comment
