The fight to protect the Tara landscape from the destruction caused by the Double Tolled M3 Motorway took a surprising turn earlier this month. Some 14 protesters, some of whom had been subject to strict bail conditions for the last two years, had cases against them dismissed at Trim District Court. This was a matter of major public concern but it passed silently and without any interest from the mainstream media. read full story / add a comment

Edward Horgan Resigns from Green Party
Veteran UN peacekeeper and human rights activist Dr. Edward Horgan was a prominent Green Party member until he resigned and gave his support for the EU elections to independent candidate Patricia McKenna.

Mr Horgan who was a prominent member of the Greens for many years tore up his Green Party membership card during a Green Party press conference saying that the party had not only let their voters down but also members of their own party.

Patricia McKenna stated; “I welcome Edward’s support, he has a great track record on highlighting human rights abuses and I am honoured that he is supporting my campaign.” read full story / add a comment

The new deepwater port, a joint venture between REO and Drogheda Port with Hong Kong maritime conglomerate Hutchison Whampoa lined up to develop the master plan, could ultimately replace Dublin Port if the Government was to decide that it should be relocated; one of Bremore’s selling points is its close proximity to the M1 motorway.....so many unrealised plans by different developers over the past 20 years that it seems as if some sort of jinx hangs over it. read full story / add a comment

cork / rights, freedoms and repression / event notice Wednesday April 01, 2009 20:07 by EDA Cork
This year, EDA’s annual conference will draw our attention to the decades-old conflict between the indigenous people of Western Sahara (the Saharawi), the last remaining colony in Africa, and the occupier of two-thirds of their country, Morocco. The Saharawi have spent the last thirty-three years living in refugee camps in Algerian Sahara, a physical and political environment incapable of sustaining human dignity. They are continually confronted with the ongoing issues that surround this conflict: the denial of basic human rights, access to adequate water, to food and shelter; to rewarding employment, and at the core, to the right to self determination, a right determined for them thirty years ago by the International Court of Justice.
