Nigel Farage was one of the few British politicians to stand up for our right to self-determination and helped us to break free of an overbearing European power. Why can?t he see the Ukrainians are in the same position?

One of the activists from the Hill of Tara vigil camp has sent a message
to activists and people who are in solidarity with the desire of the campaign
to Save Tara to support the vigil:

A Legal challenge , today, failed to put a stop to the ppp, and the works
are to begin in earnest in 72 hours. There are possibly some options to challenge
the issue but a lot have been worn out , the vigil campaign is quite small and very
dedicated. They have asked for support in the form of tech for evidence, and solidarity
protests in the next couple of days. read full story / add a comment

The Poker-wielding one: http://www.indymedia.ie/article/76928
has advanced the theory that a law will soon be launched to endow
the eunuchs of the nation the right to defence of property:
"Sure you cannot take it with you..."

This funny little law by the Minister for Injustice brings to mind the right of
all American Citizens to bear arms- and we can see how well that turned out. read full story / add a comment

Over 500 people turned out today for a great march against the US/UK war on Iraq and Afghanistan. Starting in Parnell Square it made its way down O'Connell where the suppport of passers by was occasionally made clear by cheers of support, up Dame Street and back down to the island on O'Connell St where we were all corralled during the speeches. It isn't clear why the organisers agreed to this corralling because it meant that almost no-one could see the speakers. Speakers were generally interesting - great to hear the Raytheon 9 spokesperson - but mostly were the same people who speak at every IAWM march or variations of same. Overall a good demo and fair play to the organisers.

Shannon next on October 28th for the demo called by Antiwar Ireland! read full story / add a comment

Despite repeated attempts by the Office of Public Works (OPW) to move them on the Tara Solidarity Vigil remain camped out on the Hill of Tara. They have become a focus of opposition to plans to build a new motorway (M3) through the Tara valley. As opposition grows they have received increasing messages of support not just from Ireland but around the world also. Norwegians, in particular, have taken a keen interest in developments on the Hill due to a sense of shared history they have with Ireland.

Throughout the world, public services have been under attack for the past twenty years. Forming a central plank of the capitalist globalisation agenda, ‘privatisation’ and ‘competition’ are the seemingly unchallenged dogma of modern capitalism. The levels of privatisation which have taken place worldwide are absolutely mindblowing. During the 1990s alone over $900billion worth of public assets were transferred into private hands. Globally this agenda is pushed by the World Bank and the World Trade Organisation (WTO). The basic theory by which these bodies operate is that all decisions should be made on the basis of profitability alone. read full story / add a comment
Maryland's Residents Hold Blockdade At Marrowbone Lane Entrance

Residents in the vicinity of the construction being undertaken on the site of the recently demolished Fatima Mansions today protested at the entrance of their estate over the inadequacy of a long time promised traffic management system which had been promised to them prior to construction work beginning. Two simultaneous blockades were mounted at either end of Lorreta Road, residents joined and left with a fluctuating prescence of anywhere between ten and fifteen maintaining the line on either side of the estate. Marylands is an estate located close to the canal, just off Marrowbone Lane beside Cork Street. Traffic on any given day on Marrowbone Lane is hectic, with cars using it as a route to cut through the Liberties to reach Cork St, leaving a very narrow artery dangerously clogged with passage for cyclists generally untenable at peak hours without using the paths. read full story / add a comment

According to Max Weber, the capitalist economy of the present day is an immense cosmos into which the individual is born and which presents itself to him at least, as an individual, as an inalterable order of things in which he must live. It forces the individual in so far as he is involved in the system of market relationships, to conform to capitalist rules of action. The manufacturer who in the long run acts counter to these norms will, just as inevitably be eliminated from the economic scene as the worker who cannot or will not adapt himself to them will be thrown into the streets without a job. read full story / add a comment

Hello from Guatemala. I am forwarding the article written by Sandra, she contacted me recently during my stay in Guatemala. If any of you took part of the presentation of the book "Fumigation: the human and environmental costs of chemical warfare in Colombia" last October in Trinity the following article will make sense.
I have seen the mentioned plantations in San Marcos and i believe that the the propossal fumigations here is going to finish with the farmers livelihoods and other plantations. I have been following close the case of the Mining company and there is a great video for anybody in Ireland interested to watch about the consultation propossed by the Indigenous people about the mining.
