Please watch and share this video report of a solidarity rally in Dublin yesterday with Pussy Riot. Interviewed are the Irish Times foreign affairs journalist Paddy Smyth, legendary feminist Rosita Sweetman, with her balaclavad Holy Mary Mary's, poet Arthur Broomfield along with others. The rally was heckled briefly with a passerby saying that the Pussy Riot women should be locked up and shot.

It has been said that we live in a business run society which is characterised by business parties masquerading as political parties and a 'political class' that implements policies which more often than not puts the interests of 'big business' ahead of the well being of the general populace. The unprecedented nature of bank bailouts in this country along with continued and debatable payments to bondholders with an apparent absence of serious public consultation let alone a referendum on matters with such wide-ranging and generational consequences seems to lend some credence to this characterisation of modern society. read full story / add a comment

Hundreds protested at the Dail today against the government after it's return from its summerbreak.
The day got off to an eventful start with a cement truck strategically driving into the front gates of the Dail leaving only scratch marks on the paint. Unlike previous protests at Anglo irish banks, there were no barricades with a much thinner blue line. read full story / add a comment

For the record, I want to give my account of what I witnessed at the Dáil on Tuesday at the Right To Work Campaign march.

Having been at many demonstrations in Dublin over the past 15-20 years, it’s common knowledge that the gardai and mainstream media (RTE usually) always underestimate the attendances. From what I saw, 1700 - 2000+ people is a fair estimation of those that took part. Considering the bad weather and the fact that Dublin City Council had most of the march posters taken down beforehand, it was a good turnout. Hopefully, it will be built on.
