IRISH POLITICIANS BETRAY GAZA
Irish political representatives shamefully abstain in crucial UN vote on Gaza

Ireland and 16 other EU countries abstained from the UN Human Rights Council resolution to set up a commission of inquiry into Gaza. Apparently over "concerns that the draft text was unbalanced, inaccurate and prejudges the outcome of the investigation." The resolution was approved with 29 votes in favour, one against (the United States) and 17 abstentions. More details see here
Ireland's ambassador to the UN Patricia O'Brien today said Ireland had
"a very valid reason not to support the resolution."
Yeah right Patricia, and the reason was our masters in the US embassy told us not to vote in favour and our spineless politicians meekly obeyed.

Update 03/08/2014:Just hours after an attack on a United Nations-operated school took the lives of 20 civilians last week, the US announced it would resupply Israeli military with new ammunition to further their campaign on the war-ravaged city. Only several days later, the US Congress overwhelmingly approved an emergency measure to grant Israel $225 million in additional funding to boost the country’s missile defense capabilities. "

UPDATE 12th August: So far Israel has killed over 1949 Palestinians including
449 children. 9891 injured, including over 3000 children.
This count is increasing by the hour.

Since the Zapatista uprising of 1994, the indigenous communities of Chiapas have embarked on the path of constructing their autonomy. A cornerstone of this has been the development of their own unique education system. This talk is a firsthand account of some of the key features of this 'other education', its impact on communities, and its broader implications. read full story / add a comment

The people of the Ukraine are engaged in a titanic struggle against Fascism. Are you really going to let them stand alone?

The situation in the Ukraine is grave. Following a coup d’état, a junta of oligarchs and fascists, backed by the western powers, has seized control in Kiev. Since coming to power this junta have begun using open warfare in a campaign of terror, targeting men women and children in a bloody series of massacres. This ongoing campaign included the infamous mass murder of innocent citizens and trade unionists, during an all-out attack on the House of Trade Unions in Odessa, on May 2nd. read full story / add a comment

We are calling on all anti-racist individuals and groups to join the rally against racist attack in Rathfarnham and show solidarity with the victim.

This is a very serious attack and nobody should be living in fear or worse, having to leave the country because of such racism. We can't allow such racist attacks to force people out of their homes, neighborhoods and Ireland.

Please join the rally and condemn racism.

Bring placards, flags, banners...

Ireland and the wider world have gone through severe social and financial crisis over the last number of years, and many of us feel exasperated by attempts to communicate with our elected officials.

We send emails to TDs and sign our names to petitions, and yet we are left feeling that our messages go nowhere, just fall on deaf ears. We don’t feel heard, we don’t feel represented, and we don’t feel like we’re being given answers.

This compels us to wonder how do we use our voice? How do we communicate? Does dialogue even work anyway? read full story / add a comment
