Argentina is expected to appeal to the US Supreme Court by mid-February in response to a US 2nd Circuit Court ruling ordering the country to pay $1.33 billion to predatory hedge funds. The precedent the case sets will hurt poor countries in financial distress and could allow a small group of hedge funds to target assets that benefit vulnerable populations. read full story / add a comment

This is just one of the hundreds of studies indicating that ingesting fluoride is deleterious to human health. Unnecessary and health-robbing fluoride chemicals are added to public water supplies because it satisfies the political will of powerful special interest groups. It's up to each of us to demand fluoridation be stopped. 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

The couple accused in the case of alleged “domestic slavery” in London were reportedly the leaders of a tiny Maoist sect, the Workers’ Institute of Marxism-Leninism-Mao Zedong Thought, which had gone “underground” in the late 1970s. To understand how the Workers’ Institute ended up so far off the radar, we need to understand where they came from – the strange world of radical Maoist politics in 1970s London.

We've been in Dublin since Wednesday with Welsh members of Chelsea Manning's family
http://manningfamilyfund.org/2013/11/27/rocky-road-to-d...blin/
enjoying warm and enthusiastic Irish hospitality from AFRI and many others during three days of solidarity events, meetings, meals and media interviews.

There are Irish connections on both sides of Chelsea's family: maternal grandfather from Rathmines, Dublin and one set of paternal great grandparents (both Mannings) from a village in Cork. Chelsea was flown out to Iraq via Shannon airport, the use of which by the US military compromises Ireland's supposed neutrality.

There will be more to report back later, but for now here are a few photos from the visit. More photos and info here:

It is emerging across social media circles that TCD Sociology Graduate is to contest the local elections in Bray-Hannon Kennedy who once came within a seat of being elected will probably run as an Independent sweeping up Labour support across the entire area posing a massive threat to new political wannabees. Catherine is seen as a hard-grafter, a voice for the voiceless and gained increasing popularity following an RTE Documentary on her local estate Oldcourt Park which has a tragic history. read full story / add a comment
