Community Groups around Ireland will protest in towns, cities and villages across Ireland about the water charges on Saturday 31 January. Seek them out and join them! The Dublin local groups are planning to all meet up in the City Centre, Please join the protests and keep the pressure up. The temporary lower charges introduced by the government will be withdrawn after the next election and all waivers and allowances will be abolished if they privatise Irish Water which IS their plan. They later plan to charge for waste water! This is on the cards. We must stop abolish these charges and stop this disgraceful act. read full story / add a comment

After 14 years of challenging the oil and gas industry in north Mayo, what knowledge does the community there have to share? What questions might other communities have and how might they benefit from the experiences of those standing up to Shell and the State?
A four-year research project (2010-2014) in the parish of Kilcommon, northwest Mayo, sought to identify and share useful knowledge from the experiences of challenging the Corrib Gas project. This has been used to create an exhibition in which people respond to the question: If you could say one thing to other communities facing an unsafe development planned for their area, what would it be? read full story / add a comment

Piping Up! Community Opposition to the Privatisation of our Coastal Commons A seminar with Risteard Ó Domhnaill and Monica Muller
In a context where offshore oil, gas, fish and even seaweed are increasingly being privatised and managed by global corporations, this seminar will address the efforts of small coastal communities to raise fundamental questions about the common good and ownership and care of our coastal ‘commons’. Drawing on their experiences of the Corrib Gas controversy, but also other community struggles in Ireland a further afield, it will be given by film-maker Risteard Ó Domhnaill (maker of The Pipe and currently working on Atlantic) and Rossport farmer Monica Muller. read full story / add a comment

The Progressive Film Club Presents:
3 p.m. In a Different Place
3:15 p.m. Presi per il PIL
▶New Theatre (43 East Essex Street)
A very interesting documentary, beautifully filmed, about “degrowth,” sustainability and self-sufficiency in response to consumerism and the recession. It features case studies of people from various parts of Italy who have forsaken the commercial life in cities to live in rural communities and also also looks at examples of city-dwellers trying to achieve more sustainable life-styles. The film accompanies them in their new daily lives, while interviews with experts such as economists help make sense of the decisions that have been made. ■ Directed by Stefano Cavallotto, Andrea Bertaglio, and Lorenzo Fioramonti. In Italian with English subtitles. Running times: 65 minutes. ■ Watch the trailer: www.presiperilpil.org read full story / add a comment
