This is part of a growing network of people across the country. People determined to take action while the EU governments including our own enforce border rules that have killed 2500 people so far this summer. read full story / add a comment

The Right2Water campaign has called another major demonstration in Dublin on Saturday 29th August 2015 at 2pm.

The government is still on the hop because not enough people have paid their water bills and we can still beat them. This is why they have now said they have capped the amount out for another couple of years but don't be fooled, we need to keep the pressure on. They are also in negotiations for the TTIP treaty which between Europe and the US and is a corporate wishlist and includes provisions to allow them to sue governments if they do NOT privatise public services including of course water. At this point they will claim they had no choice and the "decision" was taken out of their hands. So integral to winning the Right to Water is to defeat the TTIP and ensure it never gets passed. read full story / add a comment

The EU has enforced a humiliating surrender on Greece. The Syriza government that was elected to end austerity has been forced to implement it. The meaning of Wolfgang Schauble, the German Finance Minister’s infamous phrase ‘we can’t possibly allow an election to change anything’ is now clear.

The scale of the brutality is astounding. To take just one example: there will be a ‘significantly scaled up privatisation programme’ to generate a fund of €50 billion. This fund will then be effectively controlled by the EU to ensure that bank debt and bondholders are paid off. Up to now €7 billion worth of privatisation has been pushed through by other governments in Greece.

The Irish government helped humiliate the Greeks. The former Greek Finance Minister, Yanis Varoufakis, has stated that Ireland – along with Spain and Portugal – were among his ‘energetic enemies’. read full story / add a comment

The “Irish Bulletin” was the official newspaper of the Irish Government during the War of Independence. Its aim was the provide those outside Ireland with the Government’s case and the facts of the war that it had to wage. This information could not otherwise be obtained because of the suppression of all other outlets by the British authorities that put the Irish Government‘s case. It was produced with minimal resources and under constant threat of suppression. It was therefore an undergrounds publication despite being the paper of a legitimate government.
It was unadorned with any other content except straightforward factual and irrefutable information. This is what made its reputation and because of that it became one of the most powerful weapons in the war that eventually proved successful.
It deserves an honoured place in Irish history yet it has never been republished and it is hardly referred to by our contemporary historians - and when it is - it is almost inevitably in disparaging terms.
This is the third volume of the paper reproduced as faithfully as possible to the original. Other volumes will follow.
