On July 28th 2012 at 3.00pm, cycle naked (or as bare as you dare) in the streets of Cork with a hundred or more cyclists. This is a protest against car culture, and the dangers cyclists face on the roads. It is also a celebration of the human body and the importance of body acceptance regardless of shape or size, and something which we can see as beautiful in a non-sexualised context. Lastly we cycle to draw attention to the need for more serious support for this most sustainable transport option which leaves zero carbon footprint. read full story / add a comment

"The Green Wave is a touching documentary which shows the dramatic events of the Green Revolution in Iran in 2009. The film uses a collage of footage taken from mobile phones and cameras carried by people involved in the street protests along with face book and Twitter entries, Youtube clips, blog material and animation and is a memorial to all those who died during the extreme suppression carried out by government militias." read full story / add a comment

Resistance to the Israeli Occupation –nonviolent solidarity among Palestinians and Israelis.
What has been happening, why, what have activists been doing -analysis and update from Palestine and the Global March on Jerusalem.

Maxine Kaufmann-Lacousta: Canadian and Israeli, activist and writer, Maxine has been involved in activism for justice in Palestine and Israel, either part-time or fulltime most of her life. She has visited the area regularly for extended periods since the 60’s and lived in Jerusalem in the 80’s and 90’s, working with the Alternative Information Center. She saw the error of Zionism after her first visit to Israel as a teenager with a Zionist youth organization in 1960. She was instrumental in bringing about international support for the Jahalin Bedouin, fighting their cause in the courts and practically by staying with them, as protector and witness to threats from Israeli bulldozers.

Our current social control social order is making drugs and morality illegal.
We were born in world controlled by our separation from the garden of Eden.
The herbs of the world were given to us for our responsibility and the beasts,
were given for for stewardship not the other way around as we were not beasts. read full story / add a comment

Ballyphehane & South Parish Campaign Against the Household and Water Tax (CAHWT) Picket Ciaran Lynch's Clinic

Members of the Ballyphehane and South Parish, Campaign Against the Household and Water Tax (CAHWT) picketted Ciaran Lynch's Bandon Road clinic, on Friday the 23rd of March at 6pm.

The Ballyphehane and South Parish CAHWT local groups expressed their outrage at being berated in the media by the government TD for their democratic preference in boycotting this unjust and regressive form of taxation. This unfair taxation is being imposed on ordinary people by the government in order to pay for the bank bailouts and the costs of the developers, bankers and big business. read full story / add a comment
