The Far Left both in Ireland and elsewhere completely abandoned all principles they ever had by supporting lockdowns and denying bodily integrity during the Covid crisis. In many cases they supported the Zero Covid policy which would have led to further destruction of lives through lockdowns. It is widely acknowledged the lockdowns were ineffective and counter productive and hit the disadvantaged and poor the most, the very people, the working class that the Left purports to give a voice too. Not only that Lockdowns were used to strip all of us of our rights and freedom, in other words our basic human rights which the Left apparently fought for over the years. Worse still the Left has always promoted itself on a platform of women's rights and yet during lockdowns it is widely acknowledged that domestic violence increased greatly. Despite all of this the Left supported them. Lastly during the decades the Left has spent campaigning for abortion their central platform has always being bodily integrity. Yet when people -the very ones they claim to speak for, were often coerced and intimidated into taking the deadly vaccine or else loose their job, they never spoke out against it. This was against a backdrop of the entire media establishment cheer leading for it -the very same media the Left has so rightly criticizied in the past. Yet this time they sided with them.
In short the Left during Covid sold out on everything they stood for and it was against this backdrop the some people attended the local community meeting with speakers from the Socialist Party and others to ask if they were so concerned about workers where why weren't they concerned when many had gone through economic hardship and lost their jobs during Covid. And importantly would they support more lockdowns and the plan of the government to sign the WHO pandemic treaty which will strip us of any sovereignty.
As you can see these questions were too uncomfortable and instead resorted to the media tactic of accusing them using the same old tired cliches used by the mainstream media. read full story / add a comment

RiseUp Éireann, It’s time now to take action, peacefully for this social gathering.
RiseUp Éireann invites Everyone to come to this social gathering ...Uniting together, to create solutions to end Lockdown, & to come together peacefully, to celebrate life, claim our Freedom, with artistic expression through Culture & CommUnity.
Please share this event far & wide, invite everyone, help spread the message of Truth...
RiseUp Éireann was created as a response to create Solutions, to navigate the current draconian restrictions, that are being experienced on a worldwide scale.
The Irish Government has brought legislation in that goes against a democratic society, against Irelands constitution and more importantly, for RiseUp Eireann against inalienable human rights. Of which no Government has the right to remove. It’s crimes against humanity, & Tyranny.
We intend to use peaceful methods to express our voices for the type of society we wish to live in.
We do not promote violence and are non political & non religious. Spirituality & connection to God is welcome.
All welcome to Unite with RiseUp Éireann, & our extensive network.
Everyone welcome to be themselves, & to stand in their own beliefs, based on Truth, Integrity, Authenticity & Love.
RiseUp Éireann acknowledges that the world Governments are using psychological and germ warfare, with fear being their main weapon of choice.
We choose Love.
Due to the reluctance and active censorship of alternative narratives to the one they are expounding within their own literature and that of RTE the Governments media propaganda machine, we will utilise whatever means are available to get our message out. RiseUp will peacefully demonstrate through the arts. read full story / add a comment

Councilors from Fianna Fail, Green Party, Labour and Social Democrats have agreed to give land at O Devaney Gardens to Bartra Capital.
O Devaney Gardens was a working class flat complex on the edge of the Phoenix Park. For decades, it was run down by Dublin City Council and requests by tenants for proper maintenance were ignored.
Dublin City Council officials typically neglect inner city housing complexes in the hope that they can eventually move out the residents and turn them into posh private apartments.
The Fianna Fail-Green-Labour–Social Democrat coalition that run Dublin City Council complied with this disgraceful strategy. read full story / add a comment
