Jan 27th Deadline for Submissions on Govt Bill to Prevent Citizens Objections to Bad Planning & Developments

The government is bringing in legislation that will more or less remove your right to object to various types of planning applications and will give free reign to developers and private companies to do as they please. The new rules would require objections only from established interest groups that are in existence at least 3 years and have more than 100 members for that time. Fees will also be far higher. This means if someone wants to put a motorway outside your door and dig a quarry in the field beside you, or build a windfarm outside your front window, a sewage works over the wall, then you have to have known about it somehow three years in advance, have formed an interest group and have 100 members, not 99 or 50 or 20 but 100 !

Friends of the Irish Environment are calling on citizens and citizens group to make their voices heard during the submission period to make our opposition clear to the State. The rights of citizens to access our courts goes back to the Magna Carta.

Submission can be made until January 27, 2020.
Submission site: https://www.housing.gov.ie/housing/public-consultation-general-scheme-housing-and-planning-and-development-bill-2019

When there are empowering marches and actions against the state, history can be re-written quickly, especially by the Trotskyists to reflect that nothing would've been possible without their 'Leadership'. Fortunately, due to the March on Farmleigh being organised by the Dublin Grassroots and getting little or no support from the SWP, it is going to prove a little more difficult for them to claim any part in it. In fact less than 48 hours later the Party had issued a leflet condemning us, telling us to Get Organised, and calling us 'Maggie Thatcher's Children acting like capitalist consumers'. Oooh that hurts. It has all the hallmarks of Herr Kieran Allen in one of his parental lectures to the children of the revolution. In any case, this article describes the real involvement of the SWP in the Mayday events and will hopefully pre-empt any more of their attempts to re-write history which have already begun. read full story / add a comment

Where now after May Day for the anti-capitalist and anti-war movement?

Thousands of protestors took to the streets on May Day to show their anger at a world where the profit of a few rich multinationals comes before the well being and survival of billions of people in developing countries. We also protested against the bloody occupation of Iraq and we can see now how hollow the US/UK talk of liberation for the Iraqis was. George Bush is coming in June and we want to see hundreds of thousands on the streets to protest. read full story / add a comment

As well as taking part in the “Another Europe is Possible” demonstration on May 1st, members of Labour Youth were prominent at events over the Bank Holiday weekend organised by the Dublin Grassroots Network. Activists ignored the scandalous hysteria in the corporate media and intimidation by the Gardaí to partake in a number of peaceful actions over the weekend for a Europe based on social needs, not big business wants. read full story / add a comment

Press Release- Those charged with public order offences from May Day should have been granted bail in Clover Hill


Another Europe is Possible (the broad alliance that organised the two-thousand strong march and carnival from Central Bank to Heuston Station on May Day) condemns the refusal of bail by Judge John Coughlan at Cloverhill District Court to the twelve men charged with public order offences arising from incidents during the May Day march to Farmleigh House. The men were then forced to go to the High Court where their application for bail was granted. read full story / add a comment

A lot of people can be put off by the violence that can erupt at some of these demonstrations. In contrast the front of the Irish Times on Tuesday shows a woman on at the RTS event dancing with an ice cream in one hand and 2 gardai laughing - more of this type of thing I say!! read full story / add a comment
