The “public service deal” is historic betrayal of public service union members by ICTU and its Public Services Negotiating Committee of general secretaries.The National Public Services Alliance calls on the elected national executives of individual unions to reject these destructive proposals without ballot where rules permit.

Should national executives put these proposals to ballot, the NPSA will campaign vigorously in each union for a “no” vote

The NPSA also calls on all national executive committees of individual unions to keep directives and forms of industrial action in place rejecting the call by Kieran Mulvey to end industrial action.

This course brings together experienced activists in community education and social movements with those interested and motivated about social justice to create new knowledge and develop alternatives.

When a woman or girl is experiencing the stress of an unplanned pregnancy, this is the time she most needs a source of practical and unbiased support to help explain all the options open to her. Sadly, such support is often hard to come by.
http://abortion-clinics.co.uk/ is a common-sense source of objective information for men and women seeking help and support on a wide range of family planning issues, including abortion. Due to its wide and detailed coverage of sexual health topics, is also an invaluable resource for professionals in the field.

“We the undersigned 50 Primary school principals condemn and refuse to partake in the Irish Independent’s “Building for the Future” scheme being launched this week.

We abhor the quota of 20 tokens per pupil from Independent Newspapers required of all schools wishing to submit a project for this sponsored competition.

(CAIRO) Gaza Freedom Marchers yesterday, 1st January 2010, approved a declaration aimed at accelerating the global campaign for Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) against Israeli Apartheid.

Roughly 1400 activists from 43 countries converged in Cairo on their way to Gaza to join with Palestinians marching to break Israel's illegal siege. They were prevented from entering Gaza by the Egyptian authorities.

As a result, the Freedom Marchers remained in Cairo. They staged a series of nonviolent actions aimed at pressuring the international community to end the siege as one step in the larger struggle to secure justice for Palestinians throughout historic Palestine.

The following declaration arose from those actions: read full story / add a comment
