The unsayable in Britain’s general election campaign is this. The causes of the Manchester atrocity, in which 22 mostly young people were murdered by a jihadist, are being suppressed to protect the secrets of British foreign policy.
Critical questions – such as why the security service MI5 maintained terrorist “assets” in Manchester and why the government did not warn the public of the threat in their midst – remain unanswered, deflected by the promise of an internal “review”. read full story / add a comment

The Ramor Theatre Presents

Doubt: A Parable with Peter Trant, Liz O'Hanlon, Emer Sexton & Agnes Efemuai. Directed by Padraig McIntyre

Doubt: A Parable is an exquisite, potent drama that will raise questions and answer none, leaving the audience to grapple with the discomfort of their uncertainties.

The play is set in the fictional St. Nicholas Church School, in the Bronx, during the fall of 1964. There is Father Flynn, a beloved and progressive parish priest. There is the school’s principal, Sister Aloysius, a rigidly conservative nun, who harbours a deep mistrust toward her students, her fellow teachers, and society in general. And there is Naïve and impressionable, Sister James.

Sister Aloysius and Father Flynn are put into direct conflict when she learns from Sister James that the priest met one-on-one with Donald Muller, St. Nicholas’ first African-American student. Mysterious circumstances lead her to believe that sexual misconduct occurred. Aloysius, dissatisfied with Flynn’s explanation, meets with Donald’s mother, Mrs. Muller.

With no actual proof that Father Flynn is or is not innocent, the audience is left with its own doubt.

Winner of the Pulitzer Prize for Drama and Tony Award for Best Play 2005.

Admission: €18 & €16 read full story / add a comment

The Progressive Film Club are delighted to feature four new films in our last screening before a much needed summer break. It's a varied programme with two shorts - one the multi-award winning "Through the Wall", which was the outstanding work from this year's "Latin American Shorts" film festival. The other short "To Help US" is a very clever (and really short) work from a newcomer.
We follow with a film about the privatisation of Greek water. Many of the issues will be familiar to Irish people but the results of a failure to win this battle are very evident in this film.

Our final film, with a background of stunning scenery takes us up K2 and focuses on the everyday dangerous working conditions and pay of the sherpas who porter for the international expeditions climbing the mountain. This film has won several prestigious international awards.
A great final programme - not to be missed! read full story / add a comment

This article is written as a counterweight against 21th Islamophobia,
since few people realize, how much the European civilization owes
the Moorish rule in Medieval Spain. Without this rule, there probably
should have been no Renaissance, also sciences as Algebra, chemistry,
astronomy etc derived from the Arab [Greek] civilization. You know
a Medieval English King nearly converted to Islam? Read further read full story / add a comment

A Judicial Review brought by Friends of the Irish Environment (FIE) alleges that the Chief Executive of Fingal County Council failed to provide satisfactory explanatory reasons for granting the extension to the original decision to allow a third runway at Dublin Airport. FIE alleges that the record shows that the Chief Executive was fully aware that the extra runway would result in increased greenhouse gas emissions, in contravention of the objectives of the 2015 Climate Action and Low Carbon Development Act read full story / add a comment

Many people still don't fully understand why events transpired the way they did during our financial crisis, but this analysis by Michael Hudson reproduced here serves to clearly outline how and why we ended up where we did. The interview is concerned with the greek situation with but the behaviours involved in "loaning to exploit" described in the interview are clearly recognisable from our own experiences. read full story / add a comment
