30 Aug - 5 Sept

This year NATO will have their next summit at Celtic Manor Resort, in Newport, south Wales. In early September 2014, “world leaders” – all directly responsible for untold death, illegal torture flights, and wars fought purely to protect Western business interests and resource supply routes – will gather on the edge of this historic Welsh city. Many people from Newport, Cardiff, Bristol and beyond, will oppose the summit and use a diversity of tactics against it. We, an anti-capitalist, anti-militarist network in South Wales, plan to facilitate mobilisations and provide space for workshops, skill-shares and social events. We are organising without leaders as we do not agree with bosses or bombs. ... read full story / add a comment

At the time of writing, around 36 people have been killed in bloody airstrikes in Gaza, including at least 9 children. Israeli occupation forces have launched hundreds of attacks on the people of Gaza, and injured scores. Attacks have also been taking place in the West Bank for the past month, where at least 9 people were killed.

Clean Coasts Week is running this week from May 9th - 18th and it is an initiative for people to make a difference by
getting out and lending a hand cleaning up all the trash from our beaches. There are over a hundred separate beach cleanups
taking place around Ireland this week. See the official list of events at: http://www.cleancoastsweek.ie/events.php

Our beaches are a great treasure and place to visit and relax now that the warmer weather is here. At one time our pristine
seas and coastlines made these places natural wonders full of birdlife and marine life but with massive overfishing, pollution
and huge levels of plastic and general trash entering the seas and dumped on our coastlines, it has caused a lot of harm
and destruction to wildlife and to their recreational value. However, we can reverse this process somewhat and the beginning
of this long effort to restore our environment starts with events like Clean Coasts Week and with you. ... read full story / add a comment

Dun Laoghaire Rathdown (DLR) is facing a housing crisis. As international financial vulture funds descend on Dublin and are forcing up the property prices again as they seek to get a return on their billions because bank interest rates are so low, this has resulted in rents rising where they are now highest in the country. The result has been that now thousands of families are unable to afford the rents as they are being forced up by landlords. In DLR there are over 4,000 families on the housing waiting list. The national figure is 90,000.

An emergency protest for housing is taking place outside outside the Town Hall while the council have a housing meeting. ... read full story / add a comment
