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

The government has made it clear that it is determined to press ahead with its attempts to impose not one but two new taxes on us.  Minister for the Environment Phil Hogan is preparing to bring plans to government for a household tax, probably starting at €100 per year, from 1st January.  This tax will be added to by a water tax, expected to be introduced within the next couple of years. ... 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. You’ve probably also heard about Tesco’s ‘Sport For Schools and Clubs’ and SuperValu’s ‘Kids in Action’ schemes.

textLucien van der Walt – 2017 Statement on Michael Schmidt Affair 00:52 Wed 12 Apr by Lucien van der Walt 1 comments

On 11 February 2016, I issued an initial personal statement on the Michael Schmidt affair.[1] I completely rejected the irredeemable racist and right-wing statements attributed to Schmidt, which were mainly posted under false names online. They represent positions I have consistently opposed, for decades, to the best of my abilities. I noted problems with his explanation, centred on the claim that his posts and false personas were solely means for infiltrating the radical right for undercover research. I raised serious ethical problems with his actions, including his admitted role in repeatedly frustrating earlier investigations into his actions by myself and others. I also laid out my emotional turmoil over the affair, the gulf between the Schmidt I knew and trusted, a man active in left and black working class circles, and another Schmidt, increasingly exposed.

imageCajamarca: environmental and territorial dispute in “post-conflict” Colombia Apr 23 by José Antonio Gutiérrez D. 0 comments

On March 26th there was a popular referendum in the heart of Colombia, in the town of Cajamarca, in the department of Tolima, to decide whether the citizens agreed with gold mining in their territory or not. In this municipality the transnational corporation AngloGold Ashanti has been for years pushing for the exploitation of a gold mine they call La Colosa (Colossus), which is reputedly the largest gold mine in the Western Hemisphere. 98% of voters rejected mining in Cajamarca, mostly because of the fact that gold has no use other than producing profits and it is a most destructive activity against the environment.

Στις παρακάτω γραμμές θα προσπαθήσουμε να βάλουμε κάποιους προβληματισμούς που αφορούν κυρίως στο πώς έχει αντιδράσει μέχρι στιγμής ο πολιτικά οργανωμένος κόσμος και λιγότερο το ποιές είναι ακριβώς οι παράμετροι της σχεδιαζόμενης αναδιάρθρωσης στα ΜΜΜ.

Το βιβλίο του Πιοτρ Κροπότκιν «Νόμος και Εξουσία» εκδόθηκε από τη «Διεθνή Βιβλιοθήκη» το Φεβρουάριο του 1977 και εκτός από το ομώνυμο δοκίμιο, το οποίο μεταφράστηκε από τον Γιώργο Νταλιάνη, περιέχει και άλλα 6 δοκίμια του Κροπότκιν. Η μετατροπή της πρωτότυπης μετάφρασης στο μονοτονικό σύστημα καθώς και η προσαρμογή της γλώσσας και της ορθογραφίας στα σημερινά πρότυπα έγινα από εμάς, χωρίς αλλαγές στη σύνταξη και χωρίς να υπεισέλθουμε σε έλεγχο της νοηματικής απόδοσης.

É lugar comum ouvir em análises e expressões vindas de todas as camadas da esquerda e da centro-esquerda, algo como “quando este povo vai se levantar indignado”? Além do sentimento de revolta e frustração – totalmente compartilhado por este que escreve – a afirmação também traz elementos de certa condescendência com o governo deposto e algo da perigosa inocência politica. Neste breve texto, tento demonstrar como a categoria ideologia foi desprezada e, por óbvia consequência, a relação com o oligopólio da mídia – em especial com a empresa líder – foi reificada.
