The old City Arts building - another wasted NAMA building
dublin / miscellaneous / news report Thursday June 02, 2011 23:20 by Mick   text 1 comment (last - saturday june 04, 2011 10:31)   image 2 images
Join us on June 11th for the launch of the Campaign for the Old City Arts Building (COCAB). Our aim is to take back the Old City Arts building, 23-25 Mosse St (near Tara dart station) which has been abandoned for nearly a decade and is now part of the National Assets Management Agency (NAMA). We want the building to be opened up for use as an educational and cultural space, managed collectively by anyone who wants to take part, independent of private or state institutions. We also want to broaden this by demanding that the NAMA legislation be changed so that all disused NAMA buildings can be used by the citizens for social and cultural projects, social housing or (in the case of undeveloped land) community gardens. It is clear that the politics of ‘elected representatives’ has completely failed in the context of the crisis- only people power and direct action can bring real change. read full story / add a comment

I watched the BBC news today that showed Anti - Gadaffi Protesters shouting outside Buckingham Palace.
One thing that struck me as very odd is the fact the they could get so close to the Palace,
especially considering that Barack Obama had just drove into the Palace a short time earlier.
That was until a light bulb went on in my brain. The reason, I said to myself, why they got so close
was that they were against Gadaffi and not in favour of him or his regime either, stupid!.

The official Garda response to the release of the ‘rape tape’ last month was contrite and sympathetic, in accordance with the public mood of outrage. But behind the scenes, familiar tactics were deployed: Gardaí used the media to try to divert attention from the recording by maligning the women who released it. And while there was a lame attempt to blame the women for delaying the investigation in the first week, it now transpires that the Sergeant at the centre of affair still has not been interviewed by the Garda Ombudsman. read full story / add a comment
national / miscellaneous / opinion/analysis Friday May 20, 2011 16:45 by Irish Republican
The following letter was printed in the Irish Times on Thursday 19th May 2011. For me it articulates the Republican position, it represents the voice of the unconquered few. Pádraig Pearse stated in a speech on Robert Emmet that "we are the voice of an idea which is older than any empire and will outlast every empire....". This veiw also resonates within the Bobby Sands poem, "Rhythm of Time". This idea that no matter what is thrown at people there remains "something inside" that cannot be defeated. Voices that are raised because they can do nothing else but cry out when faced with injustice. Voices that attempt to clarify and pro (fess) and test (ify) that not all of us have been purchased or intimidated. read full story / add a comment

Much-publicised initiatives to bring about political reform and constitutional change are a smokescreen to mask the maintenance of hegemonic control by the same privileged political class responsible for institutionalised inequality, injustice, and the destruction of our hard-won sovereignty and independence as a nation. read full story / add a comment
