Dear politician,

Economically speaking we are being sold out by our elected representatives via the nationalisation of bank debt, while anything of value – such as our oil and gas resources - are given away via privatization.

Socially we are losing a generation to emigration, most of whom will never return, nor will have any economic reason to do so without a reversal of how this nation is managed.

Now in a state of desperation for employment, any environmental sacrifices dictated by private infrastructural projects will be justified by the offer of temporary construction jobs – crumbs off the plate while the corporations feast on our rich natural resources. read full story / add a comment

The Peoples movement calls for its supperters to vote for and to help 4 independent councillors to be elected in Dublin, Sligo, Donygal and Galway. This is vital in order to ensure that a number of politicans are elected with principled policies on the EU and leaving the Euro currency and on taking the Icelandic approach to solving our banking debt. read full story / add a comment

Gerry Adams made a big contribution to politics with his statement on the EU and IMF and has shown the way out of the mess that the political establishment and their EU and IMF overlords have saddled the Irish People with for the next 20 to 50 years. As well as defaulting we need to free ourselves from the IMF shackles and to leave the EU as soon as we can. read full story / add a comment

For traditional Irish republican socialists there are certain realities and difficult choices facing us in the very near future. With the reality of the EU being with us for the foreseeable future and an impending general election in the southern scum state, there are some very difficult choices to be made by committed activists. We can continue with our old policy of boycotting elections, which frankly if we are honest with ourselves, has not been progressive. One of the options that will have to be considered, with a major shift in the re-alignment of political forces, probable after the next election, is tactical voting or voting for the lesser of the evils, who are genuine contenders to be part of Government after the next election. Obviously the two right wing parties of failed Fianna Fail and fascist blue shirt Fine Gael are not an option for any socialist republican, which leaves lackey Labour and provisional Sinn Fein. read full story / add a comment
