Comrades,

Yesterday, we held a very successful meeting in Dublin in solidarity with the antifascist resistance, and the brave people of Ukraine under constant threat from the fascist Kiev regime.

Once proceedings got under way we were connected through a skype call to a surgeon who gave us all an account of what was going on in his region, and in his hospital. One of the main things he emphasised was the need for money and medical supplies, and how there are another 3 hospitals in the region too were medical supplies need divided around between them. We were also connected to 3 other citizens in Ukraine who all gave harrowing accounts of the situation there. Indeed, it was a very emotional and moving meeting for all concerned.

We had a great contribution from the floor too with such questions raised as to how we can all help, and how we can combat against the lies being spun by the media.

We would also like to take this opportunity to thank the Communist Party of Ireland for the use of the venue, and everybody for making the meeting possible, during this critical time in Ukraine. The process of launching a campaign in support of the antifascist resistance in Ukraine has begun, but again, we need all of your support to make it work.

Solidarity to the People's Republic's, Solidarity to the Antifascist Resistance in Ukraine! read full story / add a comment

The recent ebola outbreak is unprecedented yet little is being said about it in the media and little in the way of resources are being allocated to it's containment compared to what is being spent for example, in stoking up war in the middle east and Ukraine. The disease is highly contagious and kills 90% of those infected. read full story / add a comment

The people of the Ukraine are engaged in a titanic struggle against Fascism. Are you really going to let them stand alone?

The situation in the Ukraine is grave. Following a coup d’état, a junta of oligarchs and fascists, backed by the western powers, has seized control in Kiev. Since coming to power this junta have begun using open warfare in a campaign of terror, targeting men women and children in a bloody series of massacres. This ongoing campaign included the infamous mass murder of innocent citizens and trade unionists, during an all-out attack on the House of Trade Unions in Odessa, on May 2nd. read full story / add a comment

Three videos testify to the tortures inflicted by the border Italian police upon refugees, on their entrance in Schengen space in order to take their fingerprints. This is the Dublin III system, and evidence of the torture and violation of refugee rights it imposes on those fleeing for their safety and their future. Italy is only one of several border countries using such methods to comply with EU Dublin III.

We are calling on all anti-racist individuals and groups to join the rally against racist attack in Rathfarnham and show solidarity with the victim.

This is a very serious attack and nobody should be living in fear or worse, having to leave the country because of such racism. We can't allow such racist attacks to force people out of their homes, neighborhoods and Ireland.

Please join the rally and condemn racism.

Bring placards, flags, banners...

In reaction to an adverse Supreme Court ruling against Argentina, President Cristina Fernández de Kirchner announced that Argentina would offer new bonds to its creditors governed under Argentine law. The proposed debt swap would involve the 92% of the country's creditors that agreed to restructure in the wake of the country's 2001 default. While the debt swap proposes an alternative for the South American country to avoid paying hold-outs, it fails to reverse the global implications on debt markets, debt restructuring and financial stability. read full story / add a comment
