The anti-internment march in Belfast on 9th August 2013, was a welcome display of disciplined unity, against a most serious abuse of human rights, that the establishment parties in Ireland, either wish to ignore or damn with feint protest, while at the same time professing to be democrats, socialists or republicans. Up to 10,000 marchers stewarded by a variety of Irish Republican Socialists, Republicans and human rights organisations, marched from Ardoyne in the north of Belfast, until they they were stopped for approximately 2 hours by PSNI jeeps and thousands of fascist, rioting UVF and Orange Order members near the city centre. read full story / add a comment

Pat Rabbitte is the Minister for Communications, Energy and Natural Resources has walked away with a pension more than those working 30 years could save up for..
4 years service in the dail,means pat rabbitte of labour will walk away with a staggering 150 k pension per year,at a low 5% rate of tax,and he had the cheek to call us freeloaders when it came to the television license.
This man gets a whopping 150k a year -for a measly 4 years service in the dail,which begs the question how many other ministers are availing of overblown pensions like these and under what wafer thin conditions?
If we are to talk about people taking cuts,surley ministers pensions should be also laid out on the table,like nurses pay,teachers pay and garda pay and those on the state pension and welfare.

REPORT /PHOTOS / VID - Babe in arms to World War II veteran and all ages in between gather in London’s Giuseppe Conlon Hall to demand Bradley Manning’s Freedom
Last Sunday, we gathered at Giuseppe Conlon venue, as the sentencing phase for Bradley continues at NSA HQ, Ft. Meade,
Maryland, USA. We named our venue after Giuseppe Conlon who left his native Belfast for London as “an act of mercy” to visit
his son Gerry who had been fitted up, tortured and jailed. A similar fate was to meet Giuseppe and his in-laws the Maguires
who offered him for a bed for the night.
Giuseppe was to die in a British jail framed, libelled, tortured. Not even in death was he left alone as his body was flown back and forth
over the Irish Sea and stashed at Hereford before eventually being laid to rest. The Maguires too, who were also innocent, suffered long
years in British prisons. More on the Guildford Four and Maguire Seven here. read full story / add a comment

BARELY two weeks after the death of Antonio “Dodong” Petalcorin, the transport leader who was murdered by a paid assassin in Davao City, another local leader of NCTU-APL in Cotabato City was gunned down in a brazen daytime attack again, which makes a mockery of justice and underscores the reign of impunity in the country.

John Cassidy goes global.......... Donegal man John Cassidy is embarking on a unique project.
The following is the story behind it;
In 2011 John found an old famine-pot, broken in pieces, in south Donegal. He had it welded, restored and mounted outside Leghowney Community Hall.
Such was the interest shown by American tourists that he decided to do some research on the whole Famine-pot/Soup–kitchen aspect of the famine and found that because of bigotry, pride, misguided patriotism and inherited false information,this aspect of the potato failure was almost air-brushed from our history. read full story / add a comment
Ulster Bank to Kick Off Evictions with 3,000 Summonses and then 1,000 Next Week. Other Banks to Follow
national / rights and freedoms / news report Friday August 02, 2013 21:28 by WG 10 comments (last - friday april 18, 2014 16:29)
The UK owned Royal Bank of Scotland in the form of its subsidiary Ulster Bank is about to attempt to evict no less than 4000 families - that is approximately 16,000 people from their own homes on the island of Ireland. Once this happens the other banks will join the fray.
Please alert everyone to this - mass resistance on a scale not seen for 100 years is now required to stop this - there is a decent chance that with mass resistance in Ireland then the Banksters can be stopped in their tracks worldwide.
Please spread this warning far and wide and rally support . read full story / add a comment

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.

Given their professed position as ‘Internationalists’ there is no way that the SP in Ireland can write off their movements links with the right wing POA as an English Issue, nor can they with any credibility describe the actions of the POA here as ‘Industrial Action’. What is happening in Maghaberry is a sustained campaign of human rights abuses, conducted against vulnerable political prisoners and directed by the ‘Prison Officers Association’ along the the Gaol administration. read full story / add a comment

Last week Detroit was officially declared bankrupt . Long time downtown residents of the city last week vowed to resist evictions planned in order to sell off their homes to the super rich . The evictions are being touted as essential cost saving measures - part of an emergency plan involving "gentrification" of the Metropolitan area of the city.
Writing in the Herald yesterday, TV economics pundit Eddie Hobbs advised Irish people with at least a million to invest that the smart money was going on premium location properties in "distressed" cities like Detroit . He told the Herald : "We are currently investing heavily for clients in Metro Detroit. " read full story / add a comment
