Neither public nor private debt is the problem. Instead public/private debt is a product of the problem of profitability. Because of the lack of profitability debt has ballooned thereby reinforcing the problem.

For capitalism to economically recover a very deep depression involving massive reductions in the value of labour power and social welfare spending is a necessity. The only other (authentic) option is global communist revolution.

Recent hysteria in the corporate media has exposed a growing fear in the capitalist establishment at the rise of socialist republicanism in Ireland,

The latest example follows a protest outside Leinster House in Dublin, called to demand the Jailing of Ireland's Bankers when a group of anti- austerity protestors confronted Labour minister for communications, Pat Rabbitte.

The question on the lips of many people who have attended the recent anti- austerity protests in Ireland is ‘where are the masses?’ Some who have taken to the streets have been disappointed by the numbers turning out, comparing Irish protests to those in Greece or Turkey and have begun to ask ‘why aren’t the Irish people fighting back?’ read full story / add a comment

In many countries fighting for national liberation, the revolutionary forces are coordinated by a 'broad front'. Throughout history, coalition's of anti- imperialist groups have come together to wage a revolutionary class war that seeks to end the exploitation of the working class and establish socialism.

People are getting fed up. We have had the Anglo Tapes released and the government decides to go after the whistle blower instead. Since 2008 unemployed has risen to 14% and it would be a lot higher only that 40,000 people are leaving the country every year. The government job initiative is welfare for business interests and as described here is a scam. It is time to high light this even though many have known it for months. It seems like everytime I view the FAS website more and more real jobs are disappearing from it and being replaced with free labour internships. When I search for specific sectors now all I seem to find are internships. This scheme is absolutely sickening me as it has potentially destroyed several thousand entry level jobs. I can't believe that Joan Burton and the Labour Party have completely ruined the youth labour market with a scheme which is:

-replacing real paid jobs with "internships"
-exploiting the jobless
-wasting tax-payer money to provide companies with free labour
-putting underqualified/inexperienced/unvetted people in jobs with far too much responsibility(working with kids etc...)
-distorting our unemployment figures
-putting existing paid jobs at risk
-being used to makeup for a shortfall of skills in the public service due to the recruitment embargo read full story / add a comment

Press statement

New book entitled 'Let us Rise!' on the 1913 Dublin Lockout including essay on role of women, the solidarity effort in Britain, the revolutionary aftershock and a response by Joe Higgins TD to Jack O'Connor's Larkin graveside speech

Official Launch Monday 15th July 6:30pm Gutter Bookshop, Cow Lane, Temple Bar

Commenting on the imminent launch of Let us Rise! which will be available from all good bookshops from next week Joe Higgins TD said:

“This book commemorates the immortal 1913 Dublin Lockout. This struggle, with brilliant leaders like Jim Larkin and James Connolly, heralded the emergence of the working class as the key social and political force. It ushered in a decade of struggle which could have changed the course of Irish history.

“This period is rich in lessons for working class people today. The struggle waged in 1913 is a beacon that can shine a bright light on the way forward, if its lessons are fully absorbed.” read full story / add a comment

Following a series of austerity Budgets which have shrunk the economy, reduced social protection benefits and cut workers' take home pay, the time has come to look Beyond Austerity - to examine the kind of Budget we need to stimulate the economy, put people back to work and give hope to households and local communities. In this pre-Budget seminar organised by Unite, a range of speakers will give their perspectives on Budget 2014. The event has been designed to maximise discussion and debate between the speakers and other participants.

In an interview with The Vast Minority, writer Paul Cudenec calls for anarchists to unite in "total opposition" to the global capitalist system. He says he is trying to unearth the primal force behind the philosophy and argues that anarchism has the potential to become a new "religion" for the current age. read full story / add a comment

Interesting and thought provoking post from the excellent zero hedge site making some interesting points about what being poor in the US entails and how the poor are hit disproportionately hard by the way our capitalist blood sucking institutions operate in today's society. Although the article is US centric, much of it also applies here in our society which has been largely colonised and diseased by american society and its "values" or lack therof read full story / add a comment
