Something for people to consider during a irksome Recession and when vulnerabilities multiply, and people become further ostracised:-

'Where is the Life we have lost living?

Where is the wisdom we have lost in Knowledge?

Where is the knowledge we have lost in information?

We all know the facts.

Free-market capitalism is dangerous. It's run by a whole lot of bad, powerful people, and it hurts a whole lot of people who don't deserve to be hurt.

So much for the obvious. Now what?

Money matters in Tanzania. In Ireland the pursuit of money might, at least in recent years, be more about getting hold of the latest designer handbag, pair of Electric Picnic tickets or iPhone than affording rent or food, but this is certainly not the case in Tanzania. read full story / add a comment

Ken Loach : 'Katie Barlow’s film Visit Palestine is both a devastating account of daily life for Palestinians and a fine portrait of a brave and selfless Irish woman who lives with them. No-one talks politics yet it is a deeply political film. You are left with a burning anger on behalf of those who bear the occupation of their land and appalling military oppression with such fortitude. Israel, the U.S. and their apologists stand indicted and, on this evidence, convicted'

The Guardian : '...a passionate indictment of the Israeli military in the Jenin refugee camp...this is raw, urgent movie-making'
