'The conclusions of this report (The Saville Report) are absolutely clear. There is no doubt, there is nothing equivocal, there are no ambiguities. What happened on Bloody Sunday was both unjustified and unjustifiable. It was wrong. On behalf of our country I am deeply sorry"

British prime minister David Cameron, Tuesday 15th June 2010 (38 years after the events of Bloody Sunday)

On the 30th of January 1972 in Derry, Ireland 26 civil rights demonstrators and bystanders were shot by the British Army Parachute Regiment without warning or provocation. 13 died on the spot and another was mortally wounded. All were unarmed and most were teenagers. No one has ever been brought to justice.

In this audio recording Aileen O'Carroll draw on the stories and diaries of those working in IT company’s to talk about the secrets and contradictions of working in a global industry. The myth is that IT workers happily work a 60 hour week but like workplaces of a previous era, there is a struggle over the nature of work and the length of working time within our lives. The left tends to focus on the formal visible struggles conducted through trade unions. What can this other level of often individualised struggle teach us in the fight for a new world? read full story / add a comment
