Circa 250 persone hanno preso parte mercoledì sera alla marcia organizzata da Éirígí (Partito repubblicano socialista irlandese, ndt) durante il banchetto in onore della regina d'Inghilterra, presso il castello di Dublino. I membri del WSM (Workers Solidarity Movement) si sono uniti alla manifestazione ma la Garda (la polizia irlandese, ndt) ha intercettato la persona che trasportava le nostre bandiere e i nostri striscioni rendendoci invisibili. Questa è stata solo una parte della strategia di soppressione della protesta visibile che è stata adottata dalla Garda durante tutta la visita della regina d'Inghilterra, nonostante avesse precedentemente affermato che avrebbe "agevolato la protesta".

WSM members joined the demonstration but Garda had intercepted the person transporting our flags and banner to the protest leaving us somewhat invisible.

Give me your name and address or I’ll rape you - the words of a Garda Sgt as he discussed with at least two other Gardai how they were going to interrogate one of two female Shell to Sea campaigners they had arrested and who were being brought to Belmullet Garda station. Just second earlier while they were discussing how to interrogate the women one Garda suggested they threaten her with deportation. The Sgt responds with the addition of the rape threat which he repeats before another so far unidentified Garda chimes in with “hold it there, give me your name and address there, I’ll rape you” prompting the Sgt to repeat it one last time as “or I’ll definitely rape you.” [Listen to the 2 minute audio] ... read full story / add a comment

Last week as Shell prepares to start construction on the final leg of their controversial Corrib gas pipeline & refinery they have faced multiple set backs. In Erris Shell were prevented accessing construction sites by a blockade of protesters on a number of days while in Dublin Shell were forced to pull out of a conference at the RDS. On top of this 22 TD's gathered under a Shell to Sea banner at the Dail demanding that the consents signed by the outgoing Fianna Fail minister on his last day in power be reversed. This public show of support for Shell to Sea by so many elected representatives is a demonstration of how strongly the public have turned against the project and the Great Oil & Gas Giveaway in general. Despite this it is now the Labour Party Minister Pat Rabbitte who is forcing the project through, who this week has refused to reverse the consents. (Photo C.

The attack on workers at the Davenport Hotel in Dublin had highlighted the greed and bullying in the hotel business. A similar case to that at the Davenport has come to light here in Cork. But so far fear has ruled the day. The Clarion describes itself as one of “Cork’s premier 4 Star City Centre Hotels”. Although it’s well able to charge for its rooms it cannot find its way to granting its workers a 29 cents per hour pay rise. ... read full story / add a comment

Durante le proteste contro la finanziaria davanti a Dáil Éireann [camera dei deputati] il 7 dicembre 2010, Gregor Kerr ha pronunciato il seguente discorso a nome del Workers Solidarity Movement. Ricordando la necessità di contestare questa finanziaria, Kerr aggiunge che bisogna guardare oltre e sottolineare il fatto che il capitalismo in quanto modo di organizzare la società è moralmente e politicamente bancarotta. Se vogliamo assicurarci che questa crisi finanziaria, e la miseria economica che ha portato a milioni di lavoratori e lavoratrici in tutto il mondo, sia l'ultima allora occorre organizzarci, non per cambiare gli amministratori del capitalismo bensì per rovesciare il sistema capitalista e sostituirlo con un sistema che mette i bisogni dei molti al di sopra dell'avidità dei pochi. ... read full story / add a comment

sorrymigrantx.jpg imageIreland - Migrant X refused an abortion and forced to have a C-section 22:31 Thu 21 Aug by Andrew 0 comments

This is as complete a story about what happened to 'Migrant X' that we are aware of.  Migrant X is a young migrant women who it emerged was refused an abortion by the Irish state despite apparently meeting the grounds of the X-case legislation and instead forced to carry the pregnancy and agree to a C-section.  The pregnanacy itself was the result of rape, Migrant X attempted suicide after being refused the abortion and later went on a hunger and thirst strike.  Once what had happened to her became known there were sizeable pro-choice solidarity demonstrations called across Ireland and at Irish embassies overseas.   We have been given information that the migrant woman at the centre of the current forced pregnancy was 'committed' to a psychiatric hospital following her initial request for termination. It’s already known that the initial request was made when she was 8 weeks pregnant.  It was this crucial period in which she was being held incommunicado which led directly to the Caesarian option being possible to impose as an ‘alternative’ to allowing her to access the abortion she had asked for.

irelandmaptourposter.jpg imageLessons from the Mass Student strike in Quebec - Ireland tour September 2013 22:12 Mon 16 Sep by andrew 1 comments

In 2012 the attempt by the government to Quebec to introduce a 75% fee hike was defeated by the organisation of a mass student strike that lasted over 6 months. That fee increase was part of the global process of imposing the privatisation and commodification of education. Since the victory, organisers of the strike have been being doing speaking tours to aid the process whereby "youth and students everywhere are becoming increasingly conscious of the need to organize as a means to defend education as a social right". In September this tour reaches Ireland where we need to hear how a sustained and militant student movement that can win is built.

Mais, on est arrivé à un tel point que même le plus docile des Irlandais s’est mis en colère. La privatisation de l’eau a été littéralement la goutte qui a fait déborder le vase. Bien qu’ils essaient de vendre cette mesure avec l’argument que c’est une nécessité imposée par la crise, la vérité, c’est que depuis peu, la UE essaye de privatiser ce dit service en Irlande : en fait, il y a eu des campagnes successives et réussies contre la conversion de ce droit en business à partir de la fin des années 90. Des centaines de milliers de personnes ont manifesté dans ce petit pays contre cette politique et le gouvernement fait face à une campagne de désobéissance civile sans précédents, dans laquelle une majorité de gens refuse de payer.

E' in corso da tempo in Irlanda una rivolta contro l'ennesima tassa da austerity, questa volta è la tassa sull'acqua. Nelle aree residenziali del paese ci sono conflitti che vedono da una parte i residenti e dall'altra la Garda (la polizia di stato, ndt) insieme ai sorveglianti privati che devono installare i contatori dell'acqua. Ci sono stati cortei di decine di migliaia di persone. Questa settimana, prendendo a pretesto un piccolo incidente di 3 mesi fa quando gli attivisti del movimento bloccarono con un sit-in di 2 ore l'auto del Tánaiste (termine che indica il vice-primo ministro irlandese, ndt), la polizia irlandese ha fatto delle perquisizioni nelle case di 21 attivisti del movimento. Quello che segue è il report sulla retata della scorsa settimana a cura del Workers Solidarity Movement. [English]

Pero se ha llegado a un punto que ha emberracado al más dócil de los irlandeses. La privatización del agua se ha convertido, literalmente, en la gota que derramó el vaso. Cientos de miles de personas en este pequeño país se han manifestado en contra de esta política y el gobierno enfrenta una campaña de desobediencia civil sin precedentes, en el que una mayoría de la población de niega a pagar. Horror de horrores, GMC Sierra, la compañía encargada de la instalación de medidores de procedencia alemana y norteamericana en las casas, se ha enfrentado a la enconada oposición de comunidades que no los dejan trabajar, que obstruyen, que bloquean. La clase dominante tiene miedo y se les nota. Temen la anarquía, que el populacho no obedezca ni reconozca la autoridad de quienes gobiernan. Responden torpemente, ordenando en una semana la detención de 17 personas que participaron en una manifestación en Noviembre del pasado año en el distrito de Jobstown. [English] [Français]
