Dublin Social Forum (DSF) Working Group minutes from post October 2004 ISF and December meetings.
NEXT MEETING: 7.00 to 8.30 p.m., Thursday 13th January 2005, in the Comhlámh offices, 10 Upper Camden St., Dublin 2.
In general it was agreed that the October 2004 ISF was actually more of a DSF. That is to say that the groups, organisations, collectives and individuals that participated and did the background preparatory work were primarily Dublin-based and were not in fact reflective of the global justice movement / anti-neoliberal forces on the island as a whole. In light of this and in conjunction with the learning experience a number of us had in Workshops with Local Social Forums from around Europe during the European Social Forum (ESF) in London last October, we decided to bring the focus down to a more local, Dublin-based level. read full story / add a comment

A paper on the subject entitled “The origins of the Irish Travellers and the genetic structure of Ireland” concludes that “the Travellers are undoubtedly of Irish ancestry, due to their proximity to the centroid. Furthermore, the Travellers clustered with several heterogeneous counties in Ireland, including Wexford and Westmeath. Therefore, these data support that the origin of the Travellers was not a sudden event; rather a gradual formation of populations. Indeed, the Travellers probably originated with craftsmen and artisans forced to leave their monasteries (Crawford 1975). Later, their population grew as they were joined by various Irish groups that were forced to leave their homes because of various calamities and political upheavals (i.e. the potato famine and the repression of British occupation) (Crawford 1975). However, the timing of the Traveller origin is not certain and may have predated the historical period (e.g. Ni Shuinear 1996).” read full story / add a comment

The summer is always full of sport - the good weather sends us outdoors and between the cycling and the walking and the boating and the wrestling it can all get a bit competitive. But now that Mayday and Bush are behind us, and the summer is ending we move from sport to debate in the flow of the seasons. The Autumn is conference season and the movements generally have their shindigs around now. From Grassroots to SIPTU, from the Independent Media Support Group (c. 25 members) to the British TUC (c. 7 million members) it can be called a gathering or a meeting or a conference or whatever.
From the committee rooms, the meetings and.. err.. the meeting rooms of the ongoing social forum process the full shocking story. read full story / add a comment
