An environmental group has published a commitment from the Irish Government to the European Commission to extend the clean-up of the East Tip at the site of the former ISPAT steelworks on Haulbowline Island in County Cork to an ‘all island’ clean up.

The State is completing the clean-up of a 9 hectare East Tip contaminated waste dump but the machinery is to be removed at the end of the summer, leaving the 11 hectare site of the original steel mill in a contaminated and unusable state. read full story / add a comment

After dozens were killed and hundreds injured in the Friday demonstrations in Gaza, it appears inevitable that there will be further such killings and mutilations tomorrow as the protests continue. The following letter to the Israeli Ambassador in Ireland expresses fears that Israel will continue their unjust use of violence. read full story / add a comment

national / elections / politics / press release Monday April 23, 2018 11:49 by Seamus nolan
It may seem absurd but this campaign calls for the nomination of William Delaney 1957 -1970 as a presidential candidate for the forth coming 2018 elections. A child who received a 6 year prison sentence to Letterfrack industrial school for stealing a loaf of bread, a sentence which cost him his life. Our state has failed to honour the victims of institutional abuse, to call to task the collaborators and perpetrators of abuse and violence again the most vulnerable, or to treat the victims with anything amounting to the measure of dignity which any living creature deserves.

While the Irish media focus only Macron bombing Syria and making speeches in praise of the EU French workers and students are in full scale revolt against the French President’s neo-liberal policies.

The past few weeks have seen an explosion of resistance to Macron’s proposed anti-worker Labour Laws, his plans to cut 120,000 jobs in the public sector and introduce individualised “payment by results” for workers, along with his attacks on free higher education. Rail workers led the way but many other sectors have followed suit in mass strikes across the country. read full story / add a comment

We are launching Rebel Reads on Sunday 29th of April, 6:30-9:30 pm, in the Kino on Washington Street, Cork City

Free entry and all are welcome to the launch! Please see further below for the full list of events, films and talks.
http://www.rebelreads.ie/about/ “The Issue

Ever since the closure of Solidarity Books in 2015, Cork has been without an autonomous space where people can meet, organise and hold events.

As the second biggest city in the Republic, Cork has a real need for a community hub where independent and progressive groups can meet, work together, share resources, organise fun events, have days of action or simply to socialise.

Our aim is to fill the current gap and set up a multifunctional and self-sustainable space, run by and for the people as an inclusive, progressive, non-hierarchical organisation.

We plan to use the space to socialise, learn, organise and celebrate.”

Posted belatedly
Today (17th April), on the International Day of Solidarity with Palestinian Political Prisoners, more than 150 European trade unions, political parties, human rights organizations and faith groups from over 16 European countries issued a call urging the EU to uphold its legal responsibilities and exclude Israeli military companies from EU Framework Programs.

This call – accompanied by an explainer video – comes at a time when at least 35 unarmed Palestinians have been shot dead by Israeli snipers during three weeks of protests at Gaza’s border with Israel. read full story / add a comment
