Dublin City Council have new by laws to permit officials to interrogate members of the public as to how they are disposing of their rubbish. When the councils started charging for waste disposal years back numerous people refused to pay, the councils then withdrew their collections and ultimately the service was privatised. At the time of the introduction of a fee for rubbish collection some environmentalists argued it was a good thing that would lead to greater recycling and lower waste production. The councils began charging for recycling also of course. read full story / add a comment

With the announcement today by the TEEU and Unite that they are urging a No vote in the forthcoming Fiscal Compact Referendum allied to the fact that Mandate announced a similar position yesterday a clear division is emerging between the leading trade unions. SIPTU has basically offer its support for the treaty in return for a funded job creation plan, this is basically the union leadership buying time before it falls in line with Labour and calls for a yes vote. read full story / add a comment

De arbeiders bij Waterford Crystal die de fabriek bezetten zijn een voorbeeld voor ons allen. In plaats van de sluiting van het bedrijf, het verlies van alle banen en de vernietiging van de belangrijkste industrie van het gebied te accepteren, namen arbeiders de gebouwen over, zodat liquidatie voor de werkgever onmogelijk is. read full story / add a comment

TEEU, SIPTU, IMPACT, IWU, CWU. etc a few Starry Ploughs, Anarchist flags, Socialist party banner, Labour, Shinners.... The speakers on Connolly Hall played Luke Kelly. People shook hands met old friends made new ones. read full story / add a comment
