Not unexpectedly Martin Callinan was forced to stand down as head of the Gardai on 25th March 2014. Throughout 2013 I have written a number of articles concerning malpractices within the Garda organisation and particularly the questionable management style of (former) Garda Commissioner Martin Callinan. While Callinan was eventually forced from office, the ‘mess’ created during his term will take years to cleanse, indeed if ever. That will only happen when there is accountability. Amongst the outstanding bad practice issues are multiple claims of Gardai mishandling of a number of serious cases involving abduction, assault and murder that are being presently looked at by a Senior Barrister and now we are told that people have been maliciously prosecuted previously, it is frightening. However, if former Garda Wilson or others are in possession of such detail he must divulge it to the relevant authority.

Recent research has found a link between the use of the Monsanto weed-killer Roundup which is used with all GM crops. It is used because the genetic material added to GM crops makes them resistant to Roundup. Normally any crop sprayed with too much weed killer not only kills the weeds but begins to kill the crop. The use of GM crops allows you to spray even more of the stuff.

Residues of Roundup has to be on and in the plants and this is where the research picks this up. read full story / add a comment

Our previous two volunteer days in Farnaght earlier in the year had to be cancelled due to the weather so there's a lot to be done. On the day we will be planting a new hedge and checking on how our previously planted trees are doing. Farnaght was first planted over ten years ago and the birch in particular has shot up making this reserve a great place to visit to see how quickly native woodland can be established.
Bring Suitable clothing and lunch.

Looks as if the Ukrainian fascists are starting to outlive their shelf life. Just like the Brownshirts in The Night of the Long Knives they will be cut down by their masters. The hunter gets the bird, the dog that retrieves it gets a pat on the head, in the end a bullet in the head. Videos at he link below.

Notorious Ukrainian right-wing militant leader Aleksandr Muzychko, also known as Sashko Bilyi, has been shot dead during a police raid against his gang, confirmed Ukraine’s Ministry of Interior.

Muzychko was killed in Rovno, western Ukraine, where he coordinated actions of local groups belonging to the nationalist Right Sector movement. read full story / add a comment
national / anti-war / press release Dé Domhnaigh Márta 23, 2014 22:25 byshannon-watch
At a News Conference in Buswell's Hotel today (Saturday, March 22, 2014), immediately following her release from Mountjoy Prison, peace activist, artist and human rights campaigner, Margaretta D'Arcy, discussed her nine weeks in both Limerick and Mountjoy Prisons and the reasons for her arrest.

Ms D'Arcy continues to refute the charge that she and her co-defendant, Niall Farrell, were interfering with the 'proper use' of Shannon Airport by going onto the runway in October 2012 and again in September 2013 (for which a second trial is pending). They were in fact highlighting the 'improper use' of Shannon Airport by the US military, who have colonised an Irish airport. Since 2003, over 2 million US soldiers and their weapons and thousands of US military aircraft and cargo planes have transited Shannon Airport on their way to wars in Afghanistan and Iraq and elsewhere. The Government of neutral Ireland has 'improperly' facilitated these movements of troops and weaponry - which could easily have included killer drones and depleted uranium - through Shannon, and failed to inspect any of these military cargos. They've also never inspected any of the CIA planes implicated in illegal rendition flights. read full story / add a comment

cork / environment / press release Dé Céadaoin Márta 19, 2014 21:05 byFriends of Irish Environment
Ahead of tomorrow’s opening of the An Bord Pleanala hearing into the plans for the clean up of the old steel plant’s toxic dump on Haulbowline Island, Friends of the Irish Environment [FIE] has called for the work to be extended to the site of the steel plant itself.

The current proposal is limited to the 9 hectare waste dump on the island.

FIE says numerous reports show that the contamination on the island includes not just the 9 hectare East Tip which is the subject of the license hearing but the 12 hectare site of the steel plant itself which is being ignored. read full story / add a comment

They don't just look like like fascists, they don't just trample on Democracy and suppress National Minorities. No! The Ukrainian fascists are also intent on driving Jews from the Ukraine.
