Recently returned from a stint in Palestine, the place that most struck me was the city of Hebron. It is here that the illegal settler policies of the Israeli government has led to the most conflict and it is here where I saw some of the worst poverty in the West Bank. read full story / add a comment

Secret deal between City Council and Greyhound Recycling dirty politics

Local election candidate for Pembroke South Dock Wayne Flanagan Tobin has said the secrecy of a deal struck between Dublin City Council and Greyhound recycling demonstrates the need to clean up local government. This is given the amount of dishonesty in local government from planning zonings and’ brown envelope politics’ facilitated by unelected officials hell bent on keeping the public misinformed. This is why as a young person I am standing in the election to clean up local government and make it more transparent. read full story / add a comment

Republicans Leading last months Henry Joy McCracken march in Belfast.

‘Unity’, the newspaper of the Communist Party of Ireland, on the 24th of August carried a front page article entitled “Facing up to Sectarianism”. The article addressed question of public protests.

Despite the glaringly obvious presence of a current and existing Orange threat, more than half the article, written by Lynda Walker dealt instead with republican parades- and specifically RNUs Henry Joy McCracken commemoration which (as it turned out) was re-routed out of existence the day after the article appeared.

In a show trial that focuses the biggest spotlight in decades to shine on the United States and its own goverment's flouting and twisting of the US Constitution in support of its militaristic ambitions, whistleblower Bradley Manning has now been cleared by a court martial's single judge of charges of 'aiding the enemy' by releasing secret government documents to WikiLeaks. It was the most damning of over 20 charges against him and carried a sentence of life in prison without parole.

Never before have so many communities walked in their woods for a common purpose, to focus on their forests on the same day. Adding to the more than 50,000 who have signed our petition against the sale of the harvesting rights to speculators.

The Woodland League wish to thank all of the organisers, communities and Individuals who have come together in a show of strength and unity to celebrate Public ownership of their forests.

After all these Public forests were created under a Public afforestation plan using Public funding from State and the European Union, planted and managed by Publicly paid foresters, it is therefore obvious, it is to the Public they belong

Óglaigh na hÉireann yesterday (17th May) claimed responsibility through the media for a gun and bomb attack on British Police operating in the Twinbrook area of West Belfast. An attack which by all accounts forced a panicked PSNI unit to scramble along the ground for cover before retreating from the area altogether, albeit only for a few hours. read full story / add a comment

First of all i would like to introduce a misson as to what direct democracy would like to achieve:

What is direct democracy?

Direct democracy is a form of democracy in which the people have the right to:

Select their own candidates to represent them.
Call a referendum on any topic if a sufficient number of people deem it necessary, by gathering a set number of signatures.
Create legislation and put it to a referendum if a sufficient number of people agree with it, by gathering a set number of signatures.
Recall, remove from office, any representative deemed to have acted in breach of their terms of employment.
