Last Thursday the Garda Síochána Ombudsman Commission released an interim report on the Garda rape-threat tape recordings that were revealed last April. GSOC is the official state body to investigate complaints against the police force of southern Ireland (Garda). The GSOC report contains a major error that suggests GSOC are the source of repeated attempts to spin the story in the media as somehow being the fault of the women the Garda were recorded discussing threatening to rape. The timing of the release of the report was also suspect, coming in the week Shell resumed construction and the day before a national day of action in Erris durig which four Shell to Sea campaigners were injured by Garda and/or private security violence. Such was the level of spin applied that some media made the mistake of leading with the news that the Garda had been cleared of something no-one had ever accused them of - directly threatening the two women with rape. read full story / add a comment

Quand le drapeau rouge flottait dans la province de Munster... Grèves d'ouvriers agricoles, occupations de laiteries, des drapeaux rouges qui flottent et des constitutions de « soviets ». Pas le genre de choses habituellement associées aux années 1919-1923, les années de la Guerre d'Indépendance et de la Guerre Civile. Ce furent des années parmi les plus inquiétantes pour l'establishment, à tel point que même encore maintenant ils préfèrent que ces évènements demeurent oubliés. Les anarchistes, à l'opposé, sont désireux/ses de voir cette histoire redécouverte parce que cela nous rappelle l'esprit et le pouvoir potentiel qui vit dans la classe ouvrière. read full story / add a comment

The announcement from the Irish government that households are to face a charge of €100 per annum from January 1st with separate water and property taxes to follow by 2014 has met with fierce opposition across the country.  Radio and television shows have been inundated with texts and phonecalls from irate people who see this latest tax as a step too far and who have been pledging to resist the charge.  In a TV3 IrelandAM poll this morning, Wednesday, 87% of people answered ‘Yes’ to the question “Would you consider boycotting the household charge?” read full story / add a comment

Around 30 Republican prisoners continue to engage in a ‘dirty protest’ in Maghaberry prison over the failure of the Northern Ireland Administration and the Prison Officers Association to implement a facilitated agreement reached between all parties last August. This is part of a wider criminalisation policy to punish, brutalize and isolate prisoners which includes regular beatings and strip-searching - which remains the outstanding issue to be resolved. Similarly to the 1980/81 prison struggles, the prisoners are simply asking for their rights and dignity to be respected. read full story / add a comment

Rioting erupted in ‘nationalist areas’ across the North on Tuesday after the annual Orange Order parades. The worst of the trouble was in Ardoyne in North Belfast which left 16 police officers injured and with over 60 lethal plastic bullets fired leaving many people injured. WSM member 'John Creagh' reports from the Ardoyne on the disturbances and what they tell us.

ireland / britain / miscellaneous / news report Tuesday July 12, 2011 09:57 by Jack White
It is this time of year again when the spectre of sectarianism and division comes to the fore in the north of Ireland. It is a time when communities, kerbstones and poles are marked and carved into territory. There are those who will be living in fear and silenced from speaking out while the rest of us are told to turn the other check in the interests of peace and stability. It is unfortunate, if perhaps somewhat inevitable, that the now annual battles around the ‘marching season’ fall along religious lines. The Orange parades are being used to test the supposed 'neutrality' of the northern regime and the PSNI in particular. The losing side in this dangerous game however is likely to be the working class, as the confrontations and the sectarian attacks that occur around the Orange marches drive people further into ‘their own’ communities.

Dopo l'iperbole della campagna elettorale, abbiamo cominciato a capire che le voci di un nuovo giorno nella politica irlandese sono state grandemente esagerate. Ora che la cosa si è un po' sgonfiata, si affonda nuovamente dentro la stessa vecchia crisi. Mentre l'inchiesta Moriarty ci fa conoscere - con parsimonia - come funziona la politica per i ricchi, noi siamo in grado di sapere come funzionano esattamente le cose per tutti noi.

"Sovrebbero gli scioperi arrecare gravi danni al nostro tessuto economico e sociale e dovrebbe crescere in noi la spinta ad agir?." Così Vince Cable ha detto alla conferenza annuale della GMB che lancia il guanto di sfida alla sinistra ed al movimento operaio con la minaccia velata di dure leggi antisindacali. Ora più che mai, la questione "come possiamo sconfiggere i tagli?" ha disperatamente bisogno di una risposta. [English] read full story / add a comment

“Should strikes impose serious damage to our economic and social fabric, the pressure on us to act would ratchet up. ” said Vince Cable at the GMB's annual conference, laying down the gauntlet to the left and the labour movement with the thinly-veiled threat of tougher anti-union laws. Now more than ever the question of “how can we fight back?” needs desperately answered. The left has responded to this question in different ways, from the civil disobedience of UK Uncut to the March 26th mass demonstration in London called by the TUC. Much of the focus was on the June 30th strikes, arguing for even greater, more militant action. But after June 30th, what next? Clearly a single day of action, no matter how militant, has not and can not change government policy, what should our longer-term strategy be against the cuts?

After the hyperbole of the election campaign, we have started to realise that rumours of a new day in Irish politics were greatly exaggerated. Somewhat deflated, we now sink back into the same old crisis. While the limited exposures of the Moriarty tribunal [ed: a public inquiry into political corruption in Ireland] have shown us how politics works for the rich, we are about to learn exactly how it works for the rest of us.

WSM and other pro-choice activists took place in a counter demonstration to the “Rally for Life” which took place in Dublin on Sunday 3 July 2011. The anti-abortion rally was organised by Youth Defence (including “The Life Institute”(previously Mother & Campaign – an outgrowth of Youth Defense) and Belfast Based "Precious Life". Approximately 2,000 people seem to have attended. The pro-choice counter demonstration, organised at short notice was still attended by around 300 people. Many attending the anti-abortion rally came from all over Ireland and even included a small group of migrants from the Philippines. There were some tense exchanges between pro-choice campaigners and anti-abortion marchers. read full story / add a comment

The government has made it clear that it is determined to press ahead with its attempts to impose not one but two new taxes on us.  Minister for the Environment Phil Hogan is preparing to bring plans to government for a household tax, probably starting at €100 per year, from 1st January.  This tax will be added to by a water tax, expected to be introduced within the next couple of years. read full story / add a comment

The reality behind the new beginning to policing was once again revealed on the streets of the North yesterday whenever children returning from a bus trip to Dublin where terrorised by heavily armed PSNI members for up two hours. The bus trip organised by the Republican Network for Unity contained 13 children and 6 adults were returning from a trip to Kilmainham Gaol was stopped and searched allegedly for explosives just outside Banbridge by up to 60-70 PSNI officers with a forensic lab and helicopters.

The cracks beneath the surface in the peace process were once again exposed on the streets of East Belfast last night in the second night of serious sectarian rioting. A UVF led mob numbering in the 100's has been engaged in attacks on catholic homes at the edge of the Short Strand. This is the reality of a peace dividend which has failed to deliver to working-class communities and stands in stark contrast to suburbia only 5 miles away which produced golf champion Rory McElroy.

As the economic crisis deepens in Ireland, brutal conditions worsen in it's already overcrowded prisons. Of course the incarcerated are almost exclusively from the poorest sections of society, and the real criminals who have brought economic blight upon the country will never see the inside of a cell or have to endure slopping out. read full story / add a comment

Although the global crash and the end of the property bubble has brought severe recession to Ireland with drastic cuts to services, public and private sector wages and rising unemployment, for the capitalist class, the good times still roll. read full story / add a comment

Circa 250 persone hanno preso parte mercoledì sera alla marcia organizzata da Éirígí (Partito repubblicano socialista irlandese, ndt) durante il banchetto in onore della regina d'Inghilterra, presso il castello di Dublino. I membri del WSM (Workers Solidarity Movement) si sono uniti alla manifestazione ma la Garda (la polizia irlandese, ndt) ha intercettato la persona che trasportava le nostre bandiere e i nostri striscioni rendendoci invisibili. Questa è stata solo una parte della strategia di soppressione della protesta visibile che è stata adottata dalla Garda durante tutta la visita della regina d'Inghilterra, nonostante avesse precedentemente affermato che avrebbe "agevolato la protesta".

Artículo sobre el significado de la costosa y extravagante visita de la reina Isabel II a Irlanda; sobre los esfuerzos de la clase dominante irlandesa por "cerrar un capítulo negro" con gestos simbólicos inútiles y no pidiendo el retiro de las 5.000 tropas británicas en el Norte ni justicia para las víctimas del terrorismo de Estado británico -ilusión invocada en momentos en que el andamiaje de los acuerdos de paz de Viernes Santo comienzan a tambalear-; y sobre la crisis del movimiento republicano en Irlanda y la necesidad de avanzar más allá del romanticismo nacionalista para conseguir la liberación y el socialismo. read full story / add a comment

About 250 people took part in the éirígí organised march on the banquet for the British Queen staged in Dublin castle Wedensday night. WSM members joined the demonstration but Garda had intercepted the person transporting our flags and banner to the protest leaving us somewhat invisible. This was part of a pattern of suppression of visible protest that occurred throughout the visit of the British Queen despite Garda claims that they would "facilitate protest" in advance of the visit [Italiano] read full story / add a comment
