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. ... read full story / add a comment

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. ... read full story / add a comment

Sabato a Dublino ha visto un altro disperato tentativo da parte della coalizione "anti-scelta" [ossia contro la scelta della donna di decidere - ndt.] di evitare che il Dáil (la Camera irlandese) introduca legislazione che permetterebbe l'aborto in casi in cui la vita della donna è in pericolo. Nonostante mesi di preparazione, comportando una spesa che deve essere stato vicino a un milione di euro, e nonostante che i parroci, durante la messa in ogni parocchia, abbiano reso obbligatorio la partecipazione a tutti i cattolici, meno di 15.000 si sono presentati alla manifestazione. Rispetto alle 150.000 donne che hanno dovuto viaggiare per ottenere aborti negli ultimi decenni, ciò equivale a quasi nulla, un pugno di fanatici trasportati in autobus da tutto il paese.

Saturday in Dublin saw another desperate attempt by the anti-choice coalition to prevent legislation coming to the Dail (Irish parliament) to allow abortion where a women's life is under threat. Despite months of preparation, a spend that must have ran close to a million euro, and the parish priest at every mass in the country telling catholics they should attend, less that 15,000 turned up. Compared to the 150,000 women who have had to travel to obtain abortions in the last ecades this amounts to almost nothing, a handful of bigots bussed in from all over the country.

This afternoon the government had finally confirmed that it is to legislate for abortion access under the conditions of the X-case. While we can welcome the failure of the anti-choice movement to stop this announcement, despite frantically spending a quarter of a million dollars euro in ten days, this is so little so late that it is almost meaningless. ... read full story / add a comment

As with previous budgets the new flat rate taxes, PRSI & excise hikes will mean workers & those on low income will be hit hard while the richest 1% will hardly notice any difference. ... read full story / add a comment

Last night saw hundreds of pro-choice activists blockade the gates of the Dáil after TD's once more refused to pass X-case legislation. Twenty years after the X-case and one month after the death of Savita Halappanavar women in Ireland were told once more that the politicians had not had enough time. The political parties, in particular the Labour Party, were once more engaged in a cynical game of playing politics - a game that leaves pregnant women at continued risk in Irish hospitals. ... read full story / add a comment

A huge secretive Garda security operation last night swung into operation in Dublin Port as Shell's Tunnel Boring Machine (TBM) left the port as part of a huge convoy of Garda vehicles. News of the operation had leaked at the last minute meaning that with only an hours notice a handful of Shell to Sea campaigners managed to get down to the port entrance despite the pouring rain. Most of us were pulled over and questioned by Garda at least once and the Garda helicopter stayed overhead as various Garda vehicles including a van load of riot cops with the door open drove past us repeatedly. ... read full story / add a comment

Saturday's National Rally against the Household Tax in the National Stadium was literally filled to overflowing. As well as nearly 3,000 people crammed into every possible space in the Stadium another 4 to 500 were in the car park at the side, unable to fit into the building. And the thousands who attended were angry, energized and expectant of victory. The National Stadium normally hosts boxing marches but the atmosphere on Saturday topped that of watching a home fighter coming out on top in a close fought bout. ... read full story / add a comment

Una consistente forza composta da polizia e operai comunali è stata impiegata alle 3.30 dell'8 marzo, Giornata Internazionale delle Donne, per sgomberare la tendopoli di Occupy Dame Street. La tendopoli è stata del tutto demolita nel corso dello sgombero, intimiditi i camperisti e sequestrati i loro beni personali. Uno spiegamento di forze del tutto sproporzionato rispetto ai numeri presenti nella tendopoli a quell'ora (circa 15 persone) e fortemente in contrasto con la addotta mancanza di risorse da impiegare per le indagini su cosa è successo alla Anglo-Irish Bank, il cui collasso ha lasciato un debito di €26.000 pro-capite per ogni irlandese.

A large force of Garda and council workers were deployed at 3.30am today, International Women's Day, to clear Occupy Dame Street (ODS) camp. The camp was completely demolished in the course of the eviction, campers intimidated and their personal property stolen. This was a level of force way out of proportion with the numbers in the camp (about 15 people) and stands in contrast with the lack of resources put into investigating what happened at Anglo, the collapse of which has left a debt of 26,000 Euro on every single person in the country.   [Italiano] ... read full story / add a comment

Dublin last weekend saw about 400 people take part in a demonstration against the intention of Seán Sherlock, the Labour Party Minister for Research and Innovation to bring into law a requirement for Irish internet service providers to block access to sites that allow the downloading of copy righted material. This is a similar law to the SOPA and ACTA laws that Hollywood & music industry lobbyists tried unsuccessfully to force through the US Congress. A second demonstration is to take place this Saturday. ... read full story / add a comment

Un agresivo cáncer te llevó muy temprano. Demasiado incorrecto para recibir un Premio Nacional. Demasiado rebelde para la cultura de los Fondart. No fuiste un escritor embobado por la extravagancia del mundo de las letras, fuiste un hombre pobre, homosexual y creador inigualable: “Hay tantos niños que van a nacer con una alita rota y yo quiero que vuelen compañero. Que su revolución les dé un pedazo de cielo rojo para que puedan volar”.

Today, the gangs that the states created for their interests are running away though the ruins they are leaving behind in Kobanê. While the victory of resistance is echoing in the free streets of Kobanê, the

conviction of freedom is rising above the same ruins in the streets. Like comrade Durutti says, "We are not in the least afraid of ruins". Today and tomorrow, in Kobanê and many other places, we know that a new life is being created among the ruins.

El “Colectivo social ¡Salvemos el río Renaico!” es una organización que funciona en base a autogestión y mantiene autonomía política, está conformada por jóvenes y adultos de la comuna de Renaico y surge por la crítica situación por la que atraviesa el río de dicha comuna a raíz de la intervención de la empresa “CMPC”, canales de regadío irregulares, la introducción de bosques de árboles exóticos y la actual instalación de una central hidroeléctrica de paso por parte de la empresa “Agua Viva S.A.”, pero además este colectivo ha adoptado nuevas problemáticas a sus actividades de agitación, como la construcción de la llamada “Ruta Nahuelbuta” que traerá consigo la instalación de un peaje en Coihue (entrada norte) y otro en Tijeral (entrada sur) afectando directamente al bolsillo de los renaiquinos.

La arrolladora victoria electoral de Syriza en los comicios de ayer domingo en Grecia, expresa ante todo el sentimiento mayoritario de rechazo del pueblo griego en contra del traspaso de las deudas de los ricos al pueblo. Pero también expresa un deseo de renovación de la política, en sintonía con esa “indignación” que recorre a la juventud en gran parte del mundo, cansada de la política elitista en beneficio exclusivo del 1% de los súper-ricos, pero que tampoco se siente representada en una izquierda anquilosada, cuyas prácticas, al final de cuentas, no difieren tanto de la politiquería tradicional.
