criminalise the street distribution of leaflets and the right to free assembly Galway City Council is trying to criminalise the street distribution of leaflets and the right to free assembly. The City Council will vote on a proposal to ban leaflet distribution from the streets of Galway under the guise of a litter byelaw, and to only allow public gatherings under permit. This is actually attacking our democratic rights to free speech and assembly.

Many groups and organisations use street leafleting as a vital organ to inform, educate and network with the people of Galway. The very nature of many of these groups means that it is not an option to pay for advertising in the media as a means of communication, and articles/letters submitted are subject to editorial boards deciding what is "suitable" reading material for their readers. The bye-law proposal only allows street distribution during the period of political elections- is democracy now to be confined purely to conventional politics with its ballot- box timing, say once every 4 years?

drinks_1.jpg EXTRACT: The effects of the Diageo ownership became clear in July, 2000, when Guinness announced plans to close the brewing and packaging plants in Dundalk, located just north of Dublin. The move came as a shock to workers and the community of Dundalk. This was the first Guinness plant closing ever to occur in Ireland. The closing eliminated over 300 jobs in a small community, as management justified the move as part of plan to remain globally competitive.

mayo / miscellaneous Sunday June 01, 2003 15:36 by IMC Editorial Group
In March 1849, several hundred starving people set out on a desperate walk from Louisburgh in County Mayo, Ireland. Their destination was a mansion where dinner was being served to the Board of Guardians who had the powers to release food or issue certificates of destitution to give entry to the workhouse. The Louisburg people were denied both. On the return journey as many as a hundred men, women and children died.

The Famine/Peace Walk Walk organised by Afri (Action from Ireland) took place from Doolough to Louisburg, Co Mayo on Saturday 31st May to commemorate this event and raise awareness around issues of world poverty and the arms trade. Walk leaders were Brendan Forde OFM who has worked for 30 years in Latin America, Kathy Kelly of Voices in the Wilderness, Nuria Mustafa, an Iraqi exile living in Ireland, and Pat O’Brien, priest, poet and anti-war activist.
