The Far Left both in Ireland and elsewhere completely abandoned all principles they ever had by supporting lockdowns and denying bodily integrity during the Covid crisis. In many cases they supported the Zero Covid policy which would have led to further destruction of lives through lockdowns. It is widely acknowledged the lockdowns were ineffective and counter productive and hit the disadvantaged and poor the most, the very people, the working class that the Left purports to give a voice too. Not only that Lockdowns were used to strip all of us of our rights and freedom, in other words our basic human rights which the Left apparently fought for over the years. Worse still the Left has always promoted itself on a platform of women's rights and yet during lockdowns it is widely acknowledged that domestic violence increased greatly. Despite all of this the Left supported them. Lastly during the decades the Left has spent campaigning for abortion their central platform has always being bodily integrity. Yet when people -the very ones they claim to speak for, were often coerced and intimidated into taking the deadly vaccine or else loose their job, they never spoke out against it. This was against a backdrop of the entire media establishment cheer leading for it -the very same media the Left has so rightly criticizied in the past. Yet this time they sided with them.

In short the Left during Covid sold out on everything they stood for and it was against this backdrop the some people attended the local community meeting with speakers from the Socialist Party and others to ask if they were so concerned about workers where why weren't they concerned when many had gone through economic hardship and lost their jobs during Covid. And importantly would they support more lockdowns and the plan of the government to sign the WHO pandemic treaty which will strip us of any sovereignty.

As you can see these questions were too uncomfortable and instead resorted to the media tactic of accusing them using the same old tired cliches used by the mainstream media. read full story / add a comment
Melbourne Australia VaxPass protest on Sat 20th Nov 2021

Last Saturday 20th Nov saw widespread protests all around Europe against the attempts to introduce mandatory vaccines and the vaccine passport which is all about control -financial control and nothing whatsoever to do with health.

There was a huge turn out but little if any coverage in the mainstream media which has since the start of the scamdemic has gone over to 100% lies and propaganda. Many of the protests continued into the night. The big numbers have been helped by the widespread vaccine injuries and every day stories in the alternative media and social media (before they are quickly cnesored) accounts of all sorts of problems from heart failure, heart attacks, strokes, neurological problems, auto-immunue disease and a huge range of other debilitating symptoms.

Saturday July 24th was WorldWide Demonstration Day for Freedom and No to Vaccine Passports and hundreds of cities world wide witnessed large demonstrations against this tyranny imposed under the pretext of the Covid Plandemic. In Ireland at least 10,000 in not more turned out on the streets of Dublin and in Cork thousands turned out as well.

Naturally the mainstream lying media reported far smaller numbers but the pictures and videos both here and on numerous Telegram channels clearly show the turnout was as stated above.

Despite the media trying to smear and criminalize in the public mind anyone who attends an anti-lockdown protest, this week many hundreds of brave citizens turned up to the Cork anti-lockdown protests. Many more were turned away by the Irish Stasi working hard to bring in the Irish part of the global police state which we see rapidly unfolding over the past year all around us. Many roads leading to Cork such as the M7, M8, N25 and others had Garda checkpoints denying the constiutional right of people to travel more than 5km. read full story / add a comment

Bertie Ahern’s desire ‘to have the power of the Mayor of Shanghai’ is cited in an objection to the proposed fee for objection to forestry applications and appeals in a submission to the Draft Agriculture Appeals (Amendment) Bill 2020. The draft legislation follows on from the 2019 McKenna Report which states that the opportunities that people have to comment and object to forestry proposals represents ‘a barrier to efficient decision-making’ and has ‘created further delays with significant administrative costs’ so the case for a fee is ‘unarguable’. read full story / add a comment

On another story soon, we will address the why. In the meantime from their perspective protecting workers rights and health is the natural thing to do but they seem confused by the sudden concern by the government for people. We offer a different perspective that explains things in a more consistent way,
