There was a reasonable turnout at Saturday's Water Charges protest in Dublin. There were two main assembly points, Christchurch and Connolly station and both groups met up on O'Connell street outside the GPO where the speeches were given and crowd generally entertained with music at the start and end.

Estimates for the numbers are hard to come back as it seems RTE, the government and media like to play down the numbers while the estimate from Right2Water seemed a bit high but it was probably somewhere between 10,000 and 20,00 in Dublin. read full story / add a comment
dublin / housing / other press Sunday January 24, 2016 02:09 by 1 of Indymedia   video 1 video file
Homeless has steadily risen in the last few years and is now at crisis level. However the state is not interested and likes to imply high rates means the economy is doing well. It actually means we're just being screwed even more. The eviction last week with the full support of the Garda shows where the State's loyalty is and that is with landlords. In this case we have a house abandoned for years, but once they realize there is a squat there no resources are spared to evict people out on the street even if they have to smash up the place to do so. Bottom line is that they would rather wreck a house than have people paying no rent. Notice also how the law doesn't apply to them. See the report below from the WSM.

Monday (Jan 18th) saw an eviction without court order in Dublin involving Garda and private security / builders at Villa Park, Dublin 7. The house had been left abandoned for at least two years according to neighbours before being brought back into use last October by people who needed a home. One of them told us that it was a “Beautiful house that was to be demolished in order to make a new route to warehouse / bakery behind it but neighbours objected and planning permission was refused. The person claiming ownership seemed to be very wealthy and is listed as a director of over 28 companies.” read full story / add a comment

A coalition of 40 Irish Civil organisations are launching the Robin Hood Tax Campaign Ireland, united in the belief that it is time to make Irish financial institutions pay their fair share in tax to help clean up the mess they have helped create, and to help avoid another financial crash happening by curbing speculative trading.

The Nevin Economic Research Institute is estimating a net gain in the range of 320 to 360 million Euro each year from the Financial Transaction Tax to the Irish exchequer. Ten other European countries are about to introduce the tax while the Irish Government is NOT taking this opportunity. The campaign aims to change this Government position and campaigns for Ireland to join the other European countries and introduce a Financial Transaction Tax.

The Annual Assembly of Claiming Our Future organisation takes place this Sat 23rd Jan in the Teachers Club in Parnell Square from 11am to 2pm.

The agendas that concern us are changing and proliferating in every direction. To name a few...

At a global level there are: Climate Change and COP 21; permanent war zones; refugee and migrant flows and the failure to respond to these; UN Sustainable Development Goals; the need to reclaim EU values and solidarity to agree on strategies for the refugees and threats of EU downsizing or breakup

At a national level there are: growing homelessness; inadequate health care; an uneven economy; privilege for the 1%;; the constant stop/go of the Good Friday Agreement; political corruption and political disaffection.

How does civil society respond? Do we work harder in our own areas or improve interconnection with other movements? Do we concentrate on lobbying the state, especially in election periods, or give up on t failing states and advocate community solutions? read full story / add a comment
dublin / worker & community struggles and protests / event notice Wednesday January 20, 2016 22:29 by lasc
In the northern highlands of Peru, in a region known as Cajamarca, indigenous-campesino communities are struggling to protect their land and their water supply from destruction. A multinational mining corporation, backed up by the World Bank, wants to turn the mountain lakes, the source of water for tens of thousands of subsistence farmers, into immense open pits. This would be the biggest extractive project that Latin America has ever seen.

Speaker: Lynda Sullivan

"Do not listen to those who say there is nothing you can do to the very real and large social and environmental issues of our time. A life of activism gives hope, which is a moral imperative in this work and in this world. You meet the nicest people, you help transform ideas and systems, and you commit yourself to leaving the earth in at least as whole a condition as you inherited it." -Maude Barlow, national chairperson of the Council of Canadians, addressing Trent University in June 2009 after being awarded an honorary doctorate of laws. Maude Barlow will be one of the speakers

This meeting is an opportunity for trade unionists and all those concerned with democracy to learn exactly how CETA will damage our society and how we can all work together to apply pressure on our representatives in the EU Parliament to vote No to CETA read full story / add a comment
