In a context where offshore oil, gas, fish and even seaweed are increasingly being privatised and managed by global corporations, this seminar will address the efforts of small coastal communities to raise fundamental questions about the common good and ownership and care of our coastal ‘commons’.

Workers’ Party councillor Ted Tynan has said that it is time to replace two decades of lip-service on hospital overcrowding with immediate action to end the scandal of sick patients lying on trolleys in hospital corridors and wards.
Cllr. Tynan said that the hospital trolley crisis, like the Winter Vomiting bug, had become an annual fixture and the stock answer from both the government and the HSE that it was a temporary crisis was an insult to the patients involved and their families. read full story / add a comment
The Progressive Film Club Presents:
3 p.m. In a Different Place
3:15 p.m. Presi per il PIL
▶New Theatre (43 East Essex Street)
A very interesting documentary, beautifully filmed, about “degrowth,” sustainability and self-sufficiency in response to consumerism and the recession. It features case studies of people from various parts of Italy who have forsaken the commercial life in cities to live in rural communities and also also looks at examples of city-dwellers trying to achieve more sustainable life-styles. The film accompanies them in their new daily lives, while interviews with experts such as economists help make sense of the decisions that have been made. ■ Directed by Stefano Cavallotto, Andrea Bertaglio, and Lorenzo Fioramonti. In Italian with English subtitles. Running times: 65 minutes. ■ Watch the trailer: www.presiperilpil.org read full story / add a comment

Consider it of profound concern that the UN's 'hidden collectivist agenda' seeks to eliminate God and Universal Truth. Also, Islamic terrorists should be told that at the UN it was very largely America, with some Western support, which opposed the secularization of the whole Universal Declaration. read full story / add a comment

Spun as an anti-Semitic affair in light of Friday’s events at the kosher supermarket, the majority of the mayhem’s victims in fact fell on Wednesday in the Charlie Hebdo massacre, framing events rather in the light of NATO’s past Gladio false flag anti-Communist operations in Western Europe and exposing both the spin and events as the most corrupt of manipulations. read full story / add a comment
