Today the Venezuelan state continued its riveting bicentinial celebrations of its war for independence from the Spanish empire led by the "liberator" Simon Bolivar by exhuming his remains in what has been officially termed a respectful and patriotic operation supervised by Venezuelan flags, Venezuelan military and no less than 50 Venezuelan scientific experts in forensic anthropology, archaeological preservation & such like if not so.

Even though dental records did not exist a little less than 200 years ago, there has been little doubt that the reliquary opened, so that it may be "preserved for posterity" in the words of state minister for Justice, Tarek El Aissami, did indeed hold the remains of Bolivar. read full story / add a comment

Scargill rose to prominence after playing a crucial role in bringing down Edward Heath’s government in 1974 and in the battle with Margaret Thatchers' Tory Government in the 1984 - 85 Coal Miner’s Strike. He has been noted for his fiery oratory skills and innovative protest tactics like the ‘flying pickets’.

A lifelong political activist, he remains active as leader of the Socialist Labour Party which he reformed in 1996.

The talk by Arthur Scargill will be only one of a number, of political, cultural and social events organised throughout the weekend. read full story / add a comment

The Annual Wolfe Tone Commemoration takes place this Sunday 18 June at 2pm in bodenstown.

For the geographically challenged, bodenstown is near the village of Sallins, County Kildare. For the historically challenged it is the last resting place of Theobald Wolfe Tone, founder of the United Irishmen and the first leading light of Irish Republicanism.

The 25th anniversary of the 1981 Hunger Strike will form the theme of this year's bodenstown Commemoration. The main speaker is Sinn Féin Ard Chomhairle member and North Belfast MLA Gerry Kelly.

Ógra Shinn Féin are urging mass mobilisation amongst their activists and supporters for the commemoration this year.

( Note ; with Danish journalist Erik Pedersen I went to Michael’s house in Glasnevin a few months ago to conduct an interview about volunteers of the International Brigades for Danish radio. Despite his advanced years, a sprightly man brimming with wit and stories spoke to us for several hours. Characteristically he didn’t talk much about himself or his own endevours in Spain ( he is reported to have been a brave and fearless machine gunner in the battlefield, according to other sources ), instead concentrating on the politics of the situation and on remembering those who fell. History walks with us, and listening to Mr O Riordan reminisce about the heroic struggle waged against the fascist threat in the 1930’s reveals how many of the issues confronted then remain urgent today.
Parts of the interview are unclear, and the brackets are mine, Ramor ) read full story / add a comment
