Since 2006, MAOR have been actively engaged in a surprising range of activities that push the boundaries of political discussion and bring the issues to the streets, the airwaves and back to communities. This week MAOR Street Theatre Group took to the streets of Derry in an exciting street theatre event, highlighting the human rights abuses perpetrated by Multinational giants that the Irish government is happy to do business with. Earlier this week Royal Dutch Shell went on trial for complicity in the torture and killing of Nigerian protestors in 1995. read full story / add a comment

There was the whiff of something in the Derry air. The constantly rising civilian death toll in Gaza had already produced the same outpourings of rage on the streets of Derry as it had around the world. Thousands of signatures had been gathered calling on Raytheon to be given the boot, while ever larger crowds had gathered for vigils at the cenotaph, marches through the city, rallies at the Guildhall and at a nonviolent blockade of Raytheon itself. Now more and more of us were becoming determined that we do not have to resign to feelings of helplessness in the face of Israel’s war atrocities. Our burning rage was igniting something positive. read full story / add a comment

This is part of a global solidarity event taking place across the Middle East, Europe, the US and Canada, marking the 40th day commemoration of the death of the first child in Gaza.

Synchronised events are taking place around the world in:
Amman, Beirut, Ballybofey, Derry, Dubai, Edmonton-Alberta, Helsinki, Manchester, Nablus and Palo Alto-CA and other places.

Through the simple act of reading aloud the names of the children killed we aim to counteract the dehumanisation of the casualties as cold statistics.

derry / rights, freedoms and repression / press release Tuesday January 27, 2009 14:47 by Shane OCURRY   text 11 comments (last - monday february 02, 2009 20:11)
Before Christmas we were told of yet another delay to the publication of the findings of the Saville Inquiry. It is now unlikely to report until late autumn 09, more than 37 years after the events it inquires into. Certainly for family members of the murdered, many who have since died, and those of the wounded who are no longer with us justice delayed has been justice denied. However this delay in justice resonates beyond the case itself which is why Martin Luther King could say 'Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere'. 37 year's ago Lord Widgery's Inquiry took the side of injustice. His report retrospectively legitimised the military repression of the civil rights movement. To him justice wasn't a human ideal he had a duty to strive towards but merely a political consideration of the vested interests he represented. So the ideal was hollowed out to become another tool of oppression. read full story / add a comment
