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

Dear Indymedia

In the 2nd of May 2011 edition of the Evening Herald the paper had a story about Bin Laden's death under the heading 'Taken Out". The paper ran two photos, one file photo of Bin Laden, and one photo showing a bloodied and allegedly dead Bin Laden.

Whether it was a pure freak of an accident or anything else. Anyone shed any light on all of this read full story / add a comment

This coming Wednesday, April 13th, two thousand people will gather in Dublin’s Citywest Hotel for the sold-out POSSIBILITIES 2011 civic summit. POSSIBILITIES is organised by three Irish non-profit organisations: Afri, Children in Crossfire and SpunOut.ie and aims to inspire people, young and old, to become vocal and active in transforming our country and our planet for the better. The event will be attended by the exiled and soon to retire Tibetan leader, His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama, who accepted a personal invitation to come to Ireland from his close friend, Derry man Richard Moore. Richard was blinded by a rubber bullet at the age of 10, and went on to seek out and befriend the British soldier who shot him. read full story / add a comment

The last few days has seen a rush to be seen in the cameras condemning the actions that took place in Omagh on Saturday 2nd April. What is the point of all this hot air and rhetoric other than to boost the egos of those who are making the utterences. The death of anyone is a sad occasion, the sudden death of a loved one is devastating. Make no mistake this was a tragedy in Omagh. It is a tragedy because no-one has learned the lessons of the past. read full story / add a comment

Yesterday afternoon, Shell security personnel watched helplessly from their compound as Shell to Sea supporters overturned bog tracks that were laid to enable heavy machinery to build the next stage of the Corrib gas pipeline.

Since Tuesday Shell has been trying to work on this most controversial part of their project, despite the fact that a judicial review of the Bord Pleanala permission for it is due this week. The campaigners from all over the country displaced more than 30ft of bog tracks.
