Open Letter to AnTaoiseach Enda Kenny T.D., Alan Shatter T.D. And all concerned parties in the Raphoe Report: After many delays of the Raphoe report, which is being investigated by The National Board for Safeguarding Children in the Catholic Church (NBSCCC), we are requesting that the abuse survivors do not have to wait any longer for their findings. This report when it is finally completed will be forwarded to the Bishop of Raphoe who will decide when to make it public. read full story / add a comment

What baffles me about the current controversies over undercover policing in Britain is that what would be considered a serious breach of policing ethics over there would be considered mild in terms of British policing over here. Two stories came together this week to illustrate the point: allegations that an undercover cop in Reclaim the Streets organisations lied in court to protect his identity coincided with far more serious allegations regarding collusion on Monday's BBC Spotlight. All the while, politicians who ignore what the RUC did in the North are still asking Gerry Adams to condemn (again) the killing of Garda Gerry McCabe; they seem to think there were only a handful of victims in the conflict and they were all killed by the IRA. read full story / add a comment

In a report from the WSWS site, they describe how the broadcasting media have been forced by the UK govt. to hand over 100s of hours of unbroadcast footage of the riots to the police.

This is yet another serious erosion of checks and balances in the system and reflects both the paranoia and vindictivness of the system.

Whilst the mainstream media are generally to be trusted anyhow especially when it comes to social justice and matters relating to maintaining the system, they rightly see that this is a threat to themselves. read full story / add a comment

international / crime and justice / press release Monday September 19, 2011 15:58 by Support Network, Buenos Aires
We never forget our imprisoned comrades. We don’t mystify our respect for them but neither are we indifferent to their everyday experience. Solidarity is not, as has been demonstrated on several occasions, just a beautiful word or a slogan, but a practice inseparable from our struggle. This can be expressed in many diverse ways, and there are moments when an idea takes shape with forcefulness and continuity. Given the delicate situation (in court and in prison) that faces our comrades Juan Aliste Vega, Marcelo Villarroel Sepúlveda, and Freddy Fuentevilla Saa, who are currently held captive in prisons of the Chilean state, several individuals from Buenos Aires have decided to form a new support network in order to provide updates and disseminate information about their situation, as well as hopefully assisting in their return to the streets. read full story / add a comment

In 1981, the wishes of hunger strikers, including IRA prisoner Bobby Sands MP, were respected and doctors supervised political death-fasts in Occupied Ireland by political prisoners demanding their international rights as Irish POWs refused by Margaret Thatcher. However Marian Price and her sister Dolours Price were on hunger strike for 200 days while their comrades Michael Gaughan and Frank Stagg died, which Marian described as follows: read full story / add a comment

He called aggressive war "the greatest menace of our times." International law defines crimes against peace as "planning, preparation, initiation, or waging of wars of aggression, or a war in violation of international treaties, agreements or assurances, or participation in a common plan or conspiracy for the accomplishment of any of the foregoing." All US post-WW II wars fall under this definition. ........

Forget so-called conspiracy theories. Instead look at reality. Dare ask yourselves who actually seems to have benefited from the 9-11 calamity. In light of the debt ceiling debates and continuous politics as usual of Washington D.C., it is time for the American people and individual states of this federation to look at a troubling set of facts. There seems to have been “several” beneficiaries of 9-11 that don’t exactly fit the story line we were constantly fed by the propaganda machine and mainstream media as to how to connect the dots (which we were rhetorically asked to do). read full story / add a comment
mayo / crime and justice / news report Thursday July 21, 2011 12:59 by Bob
Early Thursday morning at 3am Mayo County Council illegally removed a caravan from private property in Aughoose, opposite Shell's temporary compound. People from the Rossport Solidarity Camp were woken by the noise and ran down to the road in pyjamas to find their caravan being loaded onto a flatbed trailer. The gardaí present said to "take it up with the County Council" if there was a problem. When questioned as to why they were doing it at 3am if the removal of the caravan was lawful, there was no response. read full story / add a comment

Thirty one prosecutions of an innocent man, followed by perjury, cover up, scandalous conduct by judges, barristers, solicitors, Courts Service and DPP's office, assaults by Gardaí etc - there was a long story to tell about the shameless judicial system in Ireland outside our Houses of Parliament two days ago.

This story is one that could also come under the Rights and Freedom heading as well as under "Crime and Justice". Kevin Tracey has been the victim of criminal behaviour but he has also been deprived of his human rights and of freedom to live a normal life with his family in peace. read full story / add a comment
