The announcement from the Irish government that households are to face a charge of €100 per annum from January 1st with separate water and property taxes to follow by 2014 has met with fierce opposition across the country.  Radio and television shows have been inundated with texts and phonecalls from irate people who see this latest tax as a step too far and who have been pledging to resist the charge.  In a TV3 IrelandAM poll this morning, Wednesday, 87% of people answered ‘Yes’ to the question “Would you consider boycotting the household charge?” ... 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

Radio, television and newspaper reports of the recent devastating floods in Pakistan are at last beginning to refer to the sheer scale of the problems faced by the victims. Figures for the number of people affected vary widely. According to the Irish Minister of State for Overseas Development Peter Power, reported in today’s (Tuesday) Irish Times, “the United Nations estimated that 40 million people had been left homeless; that eight million of those were in urgent need of immediate food and shelter; and that the combination of rising water and humidity had made a cholera epidemic a real danger”. RTE’s website says “Aid agencies are saying that the world does not fully understand the scale of the flooding disaster ….. One fifth of the country has been hit by severe flooding, with more than 20m people affected…..The UN believes up to 3.5m children are now at risk of contracting water-borne diseases….”. ... read full story / add a comment

The nurses’ work-to-rule and their threat to escalate the action next week has been met with an outraged onslaught by Mary Harney and Bertie Ahern. The sight of a group of workers standing up and demanding their rights has become so unusual that it seems as if the government cannot believe the temerity of the nurses in doing just that.
Nurses – through the Irish Nurses Organisation and the Psychiatric Nurses Association – have put forward two key demands
· A 10% pay increase to bring their pay back in line with other health workers
· The introduction of a 35-hour working week, again bringing their working hours in line with other health workers ... read full story / add a comment

Anyone who has had a child in primary school over the past couple of years has no doubt heard of the ‘Tesco Computers for Schools’ scheme whereby in return for vouchers collected when you do your shopping, Tesco give ‘free’ computer equipment to schools.
