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...

In reaction to an adverse Supreme Court ruling against Argentina, President Cristina Fernández de Kirchner announced that Argentina would offer new bonds to its creditors governed under Argentine law. The proposed debt swap would involve the 92% of the country's creditors that agreed to restructure in the wake of the country's 2001 default. While the debt swap proposes an alternative for the South American country to avoid paying hold-outs, it fails to reverse the global implications on debt markets, debt restructuring and financial stability. read full story / add a comment

Supreme Court Refuses Argentina Debt Case and Validates Hedge Fund Predatory Behavior. The US Supreme Court denied Argentina's appeal for a hearing today, leaving intact a lower court ruling that validates predatory behavior targeted towards countries in financial distress. The high court also denied a related appeal on behalf of the more than 92% of bond holders who had accepted Argentina's restructuring deal. In a final blow, the court also decided that hedge funds can access information on where Argentina holds financial assets around the world. The International Monetary Fund (IMF), legitimate Wall Street investors and the US government had sided with Argentina because of the case's impact on debt restructuring, poor country access to credit and global financial stability. read full story / add a comment

Last week on June 8th volunteer Seamus McLaughlin died in his adopted city of Dublin. Seamus was born in Ardoyne on February 22nd 1938. ", At an early age Seamus joined the ranks of the IRA and soon became OC of his local unit. England's difficulty, Ireland’s opportunity had always been the rallying cry of Irish Republicans and this young soldier of the l.R.A took Ireland's fight for freedom to the 'belly of the beast' in England, where he and his family endured many hardships including the loss of close comrades. Forced to live for decades on the run and his love for his family, community and country never wavered.

Partially fuelled, no doubt, by US and Saudi money and weapons supplied for the fight in Syria, ISIS, a branch of Al Qaeda has routed the Iraqi military in a series of offences across the country, taking control of significant parts of the country. These are the exact same people fighting for freedom and democracy with US and Saudi backing just across the border in Syria. The staggering cynicism of US policy in the middle east and the blatant doublespeak of their media is laid bare by these recent events in Iraq in the last few days.

(An article on the protest in Brazil against the World Cup, aswell as a small campaign in the southern most host city, Curitiba, about the #CheerForPeace project which is working with communities in the cities most central favela Vila Torres)
The eyes of the world focus on Brazil
Today the 2014 FIFA World Cup begins in Brazil, who knows how it will go. Will it be a success, or not? Will they have the stadiums finished in time, or not? Will it be interrupted by violent protests, or not? Will it be a positive thing for the country, or not?
We already have, what has quick become, an iconic image of where much of the feelings in Brazil rest at present. Brazilian artist Paulo Ito posted this mural on the doors of a schoolhouse in São Paulo’s Pompeia a few weeks ago.

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
