Thousands of protesters converged on Connolly and Heuston stations in Dublin yesterday as part of the 9th national demonstration against the water charges. The demonstration was called by Right2Water, the umbrella group of left wing political parties and trade unions, as part of an effort to pressurise the government to abandon their attempts to implement water charges.

PROSEGUE DA UN MESE LO SCIOPERO DELLA FAME DI PRIGIONIERI E PRIGIONIERE CURDE NELLA QUASI TOTALE INDIFFERENZA DELL'OPINIONE PUBBLICA OCCIDENTALE. INTANTO LA TURCHIA, MEMBRO DELLA NATO, BOMBARDA OGNI SIMBOLO DELLA RESISTENZA CURDA
Una práctica política ética que respete las diferencias políticas y procure siempre por el fortalecimiento de la clase trabajadora es lo que diferencia una propuesta liberadora de un proceso autoritario; una meta democrática de un método impositivo. Prácticas informales de articulación y grupos mal estructurados también perjudican el camino hacia el poder popular, porque pueden reproducir por otras vías el vanguardismo, creando “liderazgos ocultos” y desestimulando espacio de construcción colectiva.
Article 50 – or as some hope, Article 1950 or, for the most optimistic, Article 1850 – has finally been invoked. Few would have believed in April 2016 that a mere year later elements of the Tory party would be threatening war with Spain – or that a party whose incompetency on so many levels (not least, economic) would be doing so well in the polls. But then, under Cameron the Tories realised they can talk centre ground – even leftish – but track even further to the right.
ONE – Because Fine Gael are kicking back and won’t scrap the charges and metering. We’ll force them.
Ireland's Richest 300 Doubled Wealth in the Crisis (300 of Us on €30k Would Take 11,000 Years to Make the Same)
Welcome to the land of saints and hoarders. The richest 300 people in Ireland have doubled their wealth from €50Bn to €100Bn in the last 7 years. That means the number of people who’d fit in a large pub have enough money to have paid the original bank bailout of €64Bn outright (and still be so rich they wouldn’t have to work a day).
Policías asesinan a cuatro comuneros en Arantepacua, Michoacán; "se metieron a las casas y los mataron"
This Saturday at 2pm, Right2Water has called a national anti-water charges protest through Dublin city starting at Connolly and Heuston Station. Many are seeing this as the final shot of the long war against the water charges, they have been suspended for the last year because a mass boycott made them impossible to collect.
That boycott was part of a massive decentralised campaign that also saw hundreds of direct actions as communites around the country blocked water meter installations, leading to hundreds of arrests and dozens of ongoing prosecutions. And Saturday is just one of many huge mobilisations that have brought as many as 80,000 onto the streets on multiple occasions.
E’ necessaria la mobilitazione delle tante associazioni che operano nel campo dei diritti dei migranti, delle organizzazioni sindacali e di tutta l’opposizione sociale e politica a leggi discriminatorie e repressive come queste per arginare una pericolosa sottrazione di diritti insieme ad una repressione per via amministrativa finalizzata alla distruzione delle libertà e delle garanzie ancora vigenti.
