national / eu / press release Saturday February 01, 2014 18:51 by Don MacThomais   text 1 comment (last - tuesday february 11, 2014 10:17)
The European Commission is changing the European Union’s plant legislation , apparently to enhance food safety across the continent. This move has sparked a heavy opposition from many, saying that the measure will threaten seed diversity and favour large agrochemical businesses. This new law creates new powers to classify and regulate all plant life anywhere in Europe.This would see cancer giving foods propping up the cancer medication business in Ireland

The “Plant Reproductive Material Law” regulates all plants. It contains restrictions on vegetables and woodland trees, as well as all other plants of any species. It will be illegal to grow, reproduce, or trade any vegetable seed or tree that has not been been tested and approved by the government, more specifically the “EU Plant Variety Agency.” [...] The new law basically puts the government in charge of all plants and seeds in Europe, and prevents home gardeners from growing their own plants from non-regulated seeds. If they did, they would now be considered criminals.

Leonard Peltier has spent 37 years in prison even though there was never any evidence against him - except that he was a Native American in the wrong place at the wrong time - ironically, his own home on the "reservation" the European Settlers had forced his people to live in. His heath is very poor now, and he may not have much longer to live. It's time to set him free. read full story / add a comment

A recent Channel 4 documentary showed that a drone shot down in Sudan after taking part in several government operations against civilians and rebels contained a carburettor apparently made in Tillotson's Tralee plant.

The EU exports billions of euros' worth of weaponry and other military hardware every year. Below are details of these exports broken down by source and destination country, year, and type of goods.

Click on individual values to filter results. Link : http://www.caat.org.uk/resources/export-licences-eu/lic....html

Licensed goods: Arms export licence figures are provided for all EU countries. These cover items on the Military List (equipment that is definitely for military use) but do not include Dual-Use items (equipment that could be for military or civil use).

Exported goods: Most countries have also provided figures for the value of exported goods. Germany and the UK are notable exceptions.

Figures indicate known values and are inevitably incomplete due to the differences in reporting between countries. read full story / add a comment

Washington, DC - Heads of state, financial ministers, celebrities and representatives from many of the worlds most powerful corporations are meeting in Davos, Switzerland for the 2014 World Economic Forum. This year's theme of the forum is "The Reshaping of the World: Consequences for Society, Politics and Business." The Forum has focused on income inequality, the impacts of low economic growth and climate change. In advance of this year's forum Oxfam International released a report that noted that the world's 85 richest individuals have as much wealth as 3.5 billion people or half the world's population. read full story / add a comment

After the Lockout Commemorations – Trade Union Organising in 2014 and Beyond - Saturday 25th January

13 Jan 2014
The Dún Laoghaire 1913 Commemorative Committee has announced details of a workshop/seminar entitled “After the Lockout commemorations - Trade Union Organising in 2014 and beyond” to be held in the Dún Laoghaire Club, Eblana Ave, Dún Laoghaire on Saturday 25th January from 2:30 – 5:30p.m.

The workshop/seminar is open to all – whether union member or not - and is intended as a forum in which people who are interested in organising in their workplaces and communities can share ideas and learn from each other. According to the organisers “The last 6 months have seen many events held to mark the centenary of the 1913 Lockout and the heroic battles waged by Dublin’s workers for union recognition. As the period of commemoration draws to a close, this workshop/seminar aims to bring together a number of people involved in on-the-ground organising today to look forward rather than back - to share skills, analyse problems and discuss the type of trade unionism that is needed 100 years after the Lockout battles.” read full story / add a comment
