Sample of local election candidates from Independents, People Before Profit and Workers Party

The Local Council Elections are taking place this week and it is worth taking a look at what they are about and what main groups other than FF and FG are running whilst relecting on recent history aka the Mahon Planning Tribunal to remind ourselves of how bad things were. Also an attempt is made to devise a list of questions for the candidates when they come canvassing to your door and to get people thinking about what councils do and why you should spend even a few minutes a year to find out more and get them to work for you instead of vested interests. read full story / add a comment

State expenditure, as a whole, constitutes an enormous deduction from total surplus value. This largely unproductive spending involves an enormous contraction in the accumulation of capital. It is a deduction that has been growing significantly in the aftermath of the 2nd World War. In the present period of growing problems, regarding the accumulation of capital, there have been continuing feeble attempts to shrink the state or at least reduce the annual rate of state spending. read full story / add a comment

The article deals with the challenge to the Left parties and individuals to get their act together and Put a strong opposition to the neo liberal agenda. That calls for them to put aside party sectarianism in the general interest of working people and put realistic goals before people and move things on that ill benefit all the left . read full story / add a comment

Clean Coasts Week is running this week from May 9th - 18th and it is an initiative for people to make a difference by
getting out and lending a hand cleaning up all the trash from our beaches. There are over a hundred separate beach cleanups
taking place around Ireland this week. See the official list of events at: http://www.cleancoastsweek.ie/events.php

Our beaches are a great treasure and place to visit and relax now that the warmer weather is here. At one time our pristine
seas and coastlines made these places natural wonders full of birdlife and marine life but with massive overfishing, pollution
and huge levels of plastic and general trash entering the seas and dumped on our coastlines, it has caused a lot of harm
and destruction to wildlife and to their recreational value. However, we can reverse this process somewhat and the beginning
of this long effort to restore our environment starts with events like Clean Coasts Week and with you. read full story / add a comment

The family's visit to Chelsea in February was paid for with donations made to the Private Manning Family Fund, the first time in nearly four years that the family had received any financial support with prison visits. read full story / add a comment

Shell to Sea notes the resignation of Alan Shatter and his replacement by Frances Fitzgerald as Minister for Justice as a long overdue development. Terence Conway, Shell to Sea spokesperson, says “Alan Shatter showed contempt for everybody who raised issues of wrongdoing in an Garda Siochána and it was clear he never had any intention of dealing with institutional corruption in the Gardaí. We ask that his successor takes immediate action to deal with the blatant abuses of power that, unfortunately, are rampant within the force.” read full story / add a comment

The Euro and local council elections take place on Fri May 23rd and nationwide there are 11 MEPs to be elected to represent Ireland Euro elections will also be taking place across Europe for a grand total of 751 seats in the European Parliament. Regrettably the European Commission which is composed of 28 non-elected and appointed commissioners and is besieged by thousands of lobbying firms working for the private sector, is probably reckoned to have more power. Yet despite this Europe matters because at least 70% of our legislation comes from there and practically most of the regulation in a diverse range of areas originates from Europe and some of the more background regulation has its origins with corporate lobbyists with the aim of using heavy regulation to put smaller competitors out of businesses by greatly increasing the relative costs for smaller businesses. The main political parties of Fianna Fail and Fine Gael constantly tell us they are pro business and for jobs and the economy. In fact they are for big business, privatisation, outsourcing of jobs, lower wages, less social safety net and their support of big business and corporations constantly results in the suffocating of small business which are the very areas that lead to most employment. read full story / add a comment
