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
Government starts rollout of national biometric ID card starting with the vulnerable who can't easily refuse

Government is currently rolling out a national biometric ID card scheme ostensibly to help stamp out welfare fraud. It currently holds facial data and signature data. However the card is extensible and designed to hold other data in the future. (No doubt they started with the least offensive biometric measurement! )
It has been stated that these cards may act as driving licences etc in the future. It is a national ID card by the back door. Expect it to be issued to everyone. How can government justify such expensive schemes in times of recession without a murmur from the MSM?? And where are the protests against this attack on our civi8l liberties in the wake of the NSA / UK mass surveillance scandals? read full story / add a comment

Torture of Basque poltical activists is endemic in the Spanish state. Of the 21,000 Basques arrested since 1960, 10,000 have been tortured, according to a Basque historical memory organisation in a recent statement. Some of the tortures, in particular of women, have included sexual humiliation, stripping, sexual handling and penetration by objects. read full story / add a comment

'All this is doing is undermining the Peace Process and it doesn’t benefit anyone except those who want the Peace Process to fail' Seán Crowe Provisional Sinn Fein Member of Parliament. While separately Pat Doherty British Sinn Fein's Member of the Parliament In London stated:
“John Downey is a member of Sinn Féin and a long-time supporter of the Peace Process. The decision to arrest and charge him in relation to IRA activities in the early 1980s is vindictive, unnecessary and unhelpful. read full story / add a comment

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

A lot has been written about the Michael McKevitt case over the years since his incarceration in 2001. Whether his reputation as an unrepentant republican is palatable to many people or not, he has endured the wrath of a very vicious print media campaign throughout that time and even before. We overlook the fact that the media onslaught was also waged against his entire family without any justification whatsoever and the standards used against them fell well below anything that we could even attempt to describe as 'normal practice'. read full story / add a comment
The State made a decision to put Mr McKevitt away due to his political views and in particular, his opposition to the Good Friday Agreement. read full story / add a comment

This is being kept out of the media, both in Ireland and the USA:
From the organization "HARK."
Zachary Gelevinger is a young man from Wisconsin who arrived in Belfast Wednesday to enjoy a long-timed planned first trip to Ireland, the home of his Grandmother and a lifetime dream that has turned into a nightmare.
Zachary had been corresponding with Political Prisoner Christine Connor and as a gesture of kindness, had organised a visit with Christine on her birthday, arranged by Christine's mother.
This act of good will was forever tarnished when the visit was cut short and Zachary was taken out of the visit by the PSNI in handcuffs under suspicion of "Dissident Activity."
Please note again that Zachary had not stepped foot in Ireland until Wednesday. read full story / add a comment

''Peaceful persistent standing protest in front of the Dail, inspired by recent events of disgrace in our country, and the protests in Taksim square. 4th of July to demonstrate our independence and the fact that we won't stand for this sort of behaviour from the banks and the government much longer. Bring a book that reflects your feelings on what is happening to our country right now, your fears for Ireland and your memory of what makes us great.''

"I have been in prison for over 3 years and I still haven’t been given a reason. They have put forward a number of allegations against me, and I’m not able to defend myself against any of them. They say I have been seen speaking to known republicans, and that I visited a number of houses. What does that matter? It doesn’t mean I’ve done anything wrong. They have absolutely nothing on me, and that’s why they haven’t charged me." Martin Corey read full story / add a comment
