After the election victory of Syriza in Greece on Sunday 25th Jan, what are the chances they will implement their new anti-austerity programme and does this mean we can all follow their path. Is this a return of democracy -i.e. the will of the people. And can the rest of us follow them?

The short answer is seems to be no. read full story / add a comment

Community Groups around Ireland will protest in towns, cities and villages across Ireland about the water charges on Saturday 31 January. Seek them out and join them! The Dublin local groups are planning to all meet up in the City Centre, Please join the protests and keep the pressure up. The temporary lower charges introduced by the government will be withdrawn after the next election and all waivers and allowances will be abolished if they privatise Irish Water which IS their plan.

After 14 years of challenging the oil and gas industry in north Mayo, what knowledge does the community there have to share? What questions might other communities have and how might they benefit from the experiences of those standing up to Shell and the State?

A four-year research project (2010-2014) in the parish of Kilcommon, northwest Mayo, sought to identify and share useful knowledge from the experiences of challenging the Corrib Gas project. This has been used to create an exhibition in which people respond to the question: If you could say one thing to other communities facing an unsafe development planned for their area, what would it be? read full story / add a comment

In a context where offshore oil, gas, fish and even seaweed are increasingly being privatised and managed by global corporations, this seminar will address the efforts of small coastal communities to raise fundamental questions about the common good and ownership and care of our coastal ‘commons’. Drawing on their experiences of the Corrib Gas controversy, but also other community struggles in Ireland a further afield, it will be given by film-maker Risteard Ó Domhnaill (maker of The Pipe and currently working on Atlantic) and Rossport farmer Monica Muller. read full story / add a comment
