Don't ignore the Homeless

The following article was written by an Adult Education discussion and research group based in the north inner city. It was a collective effort by Ger, John, Pip, Jonathan Wheelock and Damian. For us it is important to discuss homelessness because it is not just something that we pass by on the streets guiltily ignoring people or handing out a few pence depending on our humour. It is definitely not something we just read about in reports or newspapers- it is a problem that we have or could experience in the future. Everyone in the media talks about the Celtic Tiger but we don’t see it in our areas and we see more people on the streets rather than less and we want to know why.

On Wednesday, February 27th, news broke of the Health Services Executive’s decision to freeze funding for homeless services. This move makes an absolute mockery of government policy and the official target to eliminate homelessness by 2010. Organisations working with people who are homeless have already begun to feel the pinch of what is effectively a cutback. read full story / add a comment

I'm sitting here in a wee village with row upon row of empty houses in sight. The rumour is less than 10% have sold. They're building even more. If I was them buildermen I'd give up and go home or take them diggers and go digging for gold in the mountains. The shit is hitting the fans BIGTIME. They'll try to paper over the cracks until after the EU constitution referendum but I don't think they'll succeed.

The whole of the south inner city is up for development. Dublin City Council are in the process of drawing up or have already drawn up framework plans for our communities. However in the past years we have seen areas like Cork Street developed without any real thought for the needs of the community. How can we make sure that this will not be allowed happen again? This meeting is to get a clear picture of what is ahead over the next few years and to see how we can have our say. read full story / add a comment

This morning at 8.30 the Mossos arrived and carried out the eviction of anohter of Barcelonas most important social centres, Ruina Amalia, one of the last few squatted spaces in the Raval nieghbourhood of the old city. The centre was another of the critical spaces and nodal points of BCN's social movements, about 20 people lived in the squatted space and its social centre hosted a wide range of services and support to the social movement: Okupa office, ASF (architects sans frontiers: arx without borders) support, free internet access, Carcoma the popular carpenter, costume workshop, free shop, kilombo library, theatre and dance space, flamenco patio with cheap bar and cafe.

This is another severe blow to critical nodal points of the cities social movement. It seems blow after blow has been dealt out with no real response from the movements..... Is it time for a change of thinking or acting? read full story / add a comment

Anyone going down to RTE news today will see how they've put a little "interactive" twist on the news that a flight from Lisbon almost crashed in Santry. A thumbnail picture accompanies the story http://www.rte.ie/news/2007/0919/air.html of the hotel which is reported as being a 16 storey building at Santry Cross at night with the caption "you be the judge". Then you get to see another picture of the building during the day. Cool. You be the judge. Relax now.

You are presently at the controls of a DC 9-83 passenger jet with 4 other crew members and 112 passengers slowing down on your cruise speed of (504 mph, 811 km/h) beginning a standard descent of no more than 2% declination. Feel good? Confident? Skittish? Not worrying about the 72,600 kg weight you could wallop? Now do those lights which look like an airstrip on the big hotel just in front of hte airstrip confuse you?? read full story / add a comment

Fatima Regeneration Project Phase 2 is again plunged into turmoil as a consequence of Developer P.Elliott/Maplewood acting in contravention of agreement with local residents despite their co-operation in what could be only best described as a un selfish act of burden bearing by a minority of residents in order to achieve benefits that would be by and large enjoyed by many people some from far wider afield from their local community. read full story / add a comment
