need to establish a education workers network that is
run by all and committed to building solidarity amongst workers and fighting the aggressive assault on education. read full story / add a comment

Once this was a place of great hope. During the late 1980’s, the Sandinistas were consolidating the revolution in Nicaragua, the FMLN were on the brink of overthrowing the government in El Salvador and the radical movements in Guatemala and Honduras were gaining ground. Today it is a region convulsed by massive delinquency and chronic state corruption whose economies are surviving tenuously on remittance money sent by migrants. The defeat of the revolutionary movements has ushered in an era of social disintegration resulting in a veritable neo-liberal dystopia. read full story / add a comment

5.00 pm SATURDAY 12 FEBRUARY 2005
Raytheon, Branch Road, Derry

FEIC first dug its memorial grave dedicated to the people of Fallujah on Friday 19 November. Since then the grave has been desecrated and reinstated dozens of times. Despite Raytheon’s attempts to erase this memorial, we continue at this site of struggle to remember the nameless and numberless dead murdered with Raytheon’s product in Iraq. This Saturday, we will dig the grave again.

It is worth reflecting on the words of one US Army soldier in Fallujah, -- Lieutenant Colonel Brennan Byrne, commander of 1st Battalion of the 5th Marine Regiment. Interviewed by Robert D. Kaplan, The Atlantic Monthly (published in July/August 2004 as Five Days in Fallujah), he said:

"The bad guys only have what God gave them; we have what Raytheon gave us."

Please bring flowers, candles and white ribbons. read full story / add a comment

Many people will now be aware that Padraigin Drinan, the committed human rights lawyer is being shut down by the Law Society.
A campaign has now been launched by some of us who are deeply deeply concerned about the actions of the Law Society. We aim to pull together those who are clients of the office and those who have worked with Padraigin over the years and more importantly those who are committed to the same rights and freedoms and principles that Padraigin has been defending for the last thirty odd years.
This decisision to close Padraigin's office is a disgrace and an indictment of a cowardly, vindictive body who have long had the knife out for the human rights solicitor. read full story / add a comment
