A coalition of 40 Irish Civil organisations are launching the Robin Hood Tax Campaign Ireland, united in the belief that it is time to make Irish financial institutions pay their fair share in tax to help clean up the mess they have helped create, and to help avoid another financial crash happening by curbing speculative trading.

The Nevin Economic Research Institute is estimating a net gain in the range of 320 to 360 million Euro each year from the Financial Transaction Tax to the Irish exchequer. Ten other European countries are about to introduce the tax while the Irish Government is NOT taking this opportunity. The campaign aims to change this Government position and campaigns for Ireland to join the other European countries and introduce a Financial Transaction Tax.

The Annual Assembly of Claiming Our Future organisation takes place this Sat 23rd Jan in the Teachers Club in Parnell Square from 11am to 2pm.

The agendas that concern us are changing and proliferating in every direction. To name a few...

At a global level there are: Climate Change and COP 21; permanent war zones; refugee and migrant flows and the failure to respond to these; UN Sustainable Development Goals; the need to reclaim EU values and solidarity to agree on strategies for the refugees and threats of EU downsizing or breakup

At a national level there are: growing homelessness; inadequate health care; an uneven economy; privilege for the 1%;; the constant stop/go of the Good Friday Agreement; political corruption and political disaffection.

How does civil society respond? Do we work harder in our own areas or improve interconnection with other movements? Do we concentrate on lobbying the state, especially in election periods, or give up on t failing states and advocate community solutions? read full story / add a comment

In the northern highlands of Peru, in a region known as Cajamarca, indigenous-campesino communities are struggling to protect their land and their water supply from destruction. A multinational mining corporation, backed up by the World Bank, wants to turn the mountain lakes, the source of water for tens of thousands of subsistence farmers, into immense open pits. This would be the biggest extractive project that Latin America has ever seen.

Speaker: Lynda Sullivan

Social movements and communities can seem to be up against overwhelming odds at times. Personal burnout, organisational collapse and movement decline are all familiar experiences – taking energy, skills, networks and whole communities out of the fight. How can we sustain ourselves and our movements so as to bring about the really big transformations that are needed? And how can we bring more creativity, solidarity and liberation to our relationships with others who are struggling for change? read full story / add a comment

There is 'a plan' for tomorrow, Wed Jan 13th folks at Castlebar
Courthouse - where we hope and intend to (peacefully) place the
spotlight on the outrageous abuses of the law and the Constitution which
are ongoing daily in our so-called 'Courts of Justice!' Amongst the
issues we wish to highlight are: (1) NO more private or secret Courts.
(2) NO more illegal assaults on the public. (3) Registrars and Judges to
abide by the law. (4) Proper sanctions for fraud, perjury and contempt
of Court (by authority figures). (5) Proper action on legitimate
citizen's arrests. (6) Equality for lay litigants. (7) ..and an end to
multiple abuses of our fundamental rights by politically-appointed
Judges and Registrars. TV cameras are expected, so let's make the most
of it! read full story / add a comment
