I have a problem with many activists- those who go on about social justice such as socialists often ignore environmental issues, likewise Greens and environmentalists tend to think social justice issues aren't that important- they are after all usually middle class..... read full story / add a comment

For the first time in their history, the Irish Green party is in government. The deal that they struck with Fianna Fail has been criticised in many quarters as a “sell-out” – and with some justification, since the Greens have changed sides on the issue of Shannon airport’s use by the US military, the conflict between Shell and the residents of Rossport and the decision to route the M3 motorway through the lucratively re-zoned lands of Fianna Fail supporters, who happen to live near tara. On these, and other issues, the Greens switched, overnight, from a position of opposition, to jobs in a government that is implementing them - with force when necessary. read full story / add a comment

TaraWatch Presents

Midsummer's Festival on tara

20th to 24th of June 2007

AS the sun rises to its zenith in the sky, we remember the humanity of our existence on this planet, our unity, and come together at tara in tribute to a common cause….
There is a great tradition, enjoyed by people of many different faiths and cultures, to gather at the Hill of tara and to celebrate the Summer Solstice. This year, more than any other year, due to the M3 motorway crisis, we must send out a loud call for friends to come to her defence.

Please join us as we gather in unity to raise awareness for the preservation of tara. read full story / add a comment

As I watch with admiration the grass root activists in Helligendmm, Germany, yesterday - the young students protesting against world poverty and being cordoned off by heavy handed police. Well done to these young people who have no agenda but raw passing against global poverty.
