The recent deaths of activists in Oaxaca involved in the teachers' strike have once again placed Mexico in the spotlight on the question of human rights abuses, and there seems to be no end to the spiralling number of the disappeared. read full story / add a comment

Dr Kathleen Thomas was working at Médecins Sans Frontières' emergency trauma hospital in Afghanistan, when a series of devastating airstrikes struck the hospital - killing 42 staff, patients and their caretakers. The majority of the hospital was completely destroyed, with just one young patient surviving the attack on the intensive care unit.

An oil and gas company called Infrastrata has been given a fifty year lease to drill less than 400 metres from a reservoir at Woodburn near Carrickfergus - on public land within our water catchment. At no point were we consulted.

The consequences of unconventional drilling on health and the environment are well documented. This is why it has been banned all over the world - from France to Germany, Wales to Nova Scotia..

We all live downstream.. We all share the same water table. This is a cross community all islands event with representatives from across the water and across the border who are facing or have faced similar challenges. read full story / add a comment

Following over a decade of left-leaning governments, the past 6 months have witnessed radical changes in the political status quo in Latin America. Beginning with the election of Right-candidate Mauricio Macri in Argentina, through the controversial removal of Dilma Rousseff in Brazil, to the upheaval in Venezuela and uncertainty in Ecuador, many are speculating that the era of leftist hegemony is coming to an end, and that rightist dominance is returning. This panel of scholars will reflect on the achievements and errors of the Left-wing governments, assess the challenges facing the Left across the region, particularly that emanating from the regional Right, and offer analysis of the Left's future as a social and political force. read full story / add a comment

On the afternoon of June 8th 2016 in Dublin there will be a briefing on CapGlobalCarbon. CapGlobalCarbon is a proposal for non-governmental actors to create a new global system to

(a) make sure the necessary reductions in total global carbon emissions are achieved
(b) reduce emissions in a way that also reduces poverty and inequality.

The system would operate as a back-up to the inter-governmental negotiations and provide vital reinforcement to community-led climate initiatives worldwide.

The purpose of this afternoon is to brief attendees on the proposal, set it in a context of the commons and social justice, and to generate ideas about how to implement CapGlobalCarbon. read full story / add a comment

The idea of this meeting is to inform people of the secretly negotiated TTIP agreement between the USA and Europe. It is open to all.

We hope to be able to help launch an automonous local Anti TTIP group that can work with unions, political groupings and others to defeat TTIP, by being separate from but co-operative with others. This model has worked with the Water Charges Movement in the area and we hope it can be as strong on TTIP. read full story / add a comment

Three days - six films - with love from Cuba. Opening with one of the saddest episodes in Cuban history - the exodus, in the early sixties, of thousands of children to the United States. Two beautiful shorts and a look at the life of one of Cuba's most loved actresses. The last day of the festival features one irreverent and one sensual comedy. read full story / add a comment
