3 days ago a group from the SOCIAL AND CLIMATE JUSTICE CARAVAN visited the Canadian embassy in Brussels to seek protection for a man from Colombia who has received death treaths from Colombian Paramilitaries. The Canadian state is responsible for this due to upcoming free trade agreements as well as, along with the US, not signing the charter to protect indigenous around the world. Also Canadian mining business COSIGO RESOURCES are implicated in using these paramilitaries to obtain native lands. read full story / add a comment

Today will see the greatest budget attack on workers in Ireland in a couple of decades with services and pay being slashed. Many unions and other organisations have called protests outside the Dail from the early morning to the late evening. WSM members will be taking part in these protests throughout the day and providing live updates, photos and video from them via our twitter account. During the 24th Novemeber strike we provided 70 updates from the picket lines throughout the day using this method. read full story / add a comment

“The day the political landscape changed forever“, was how Fritjof Capra referred to events of N30, Tuesday 30th of November 1999, in his book The Hidden Connections. He was referring to the day when 1000´s of global justice activists came together and succeeded in shutting down the first WTO (World Trade Organisation) talks in the US using (mostly) non violent direct actions (NVDA) in the north western US city of Seattle. This was the event which brought the “globalisation” debate to the mainstream. It has been misleadingly described as anti-globalisation, what it should be accurately described as is anti corporate globalisation.

10 years on and again there is rubber bullets, tear gas and flames in the streets. This time in Geneva, as people from all over the world converge in the lead up to COP15, the climate change talks in Copenhagen... amongst others, the Social and Climate justice caravan. read full story / add a comment

On the 25th of November 2009 on the Ray D'Arcy Show on Today FM, Ray and his co-hosts said that 'people' should stop playing the "BLAME GAME" in Ireland and just move on. However by the next show the following day (26 Nov '09) a woman by the name of 'Majella' had emailed them with a responce to this topic. I was working at the time, I actually stopped what I was doing and I couldn't believe what I was hearing, it was unreal. I ask you to listen to this 'pod cast' and above all keep an open mind. The link is posted below....

p.s. What you don't get to hear is the "Collector Generals" explanation which isn't much good as a responce to this email... you also don't get to hear the tongue lashing he got from Ray D'Arcy nor will you hear about the Collector Generals update of progress of investigation into this case today. You'll understand all of this after you have listened to the attached link; this will only take 6 minutes of your time, so please listen to it the whole way through!!

Thanks. read full story / add a comment

RTÉ Primetime Investigates next Thursday is a special on the death of Michael Dwyer.

Dwyer worked for Shell as a security guard in Mayo last year, and while there, made contact with extremists from right-wing militia groups. He joined with a number of these men and spent time in Bolivia, where after an investigation he was killed when police stormed his hotel room. It will be interesting to see what spin RTE will place on the events in Bolivia and Ireland. read full story / add a comment

As conventional sources of oil become rarer the energy corporations have started the mass extraction of oil from the tar sands of Alberta. This is a filthy process that involves vast open cast mines, tailing ponds that can be seen from space and the use of huge quantities of water and energy making it a major cause of climate change. On Saturday Heather Milton Lightening of the Indigenous Environmental Network spoke to a national Shell to Sea meeting in Dublin about this struggle (last night she spoke in Inver, Erris). This is a 50 minute recording of that talk and the discussions that followed it. read full story / add a comment

When it comes to the public meeting, Arthur Scargill is one of the best performers around. He has it down to fine art. Perhaps this is down to his political up bringing as a member of the Young Communist League, where great stress was placed on the importance of making inspiring speeches. Or perhaps it has something to do with that fact that much maligned figure like Scargill needs the medium of the public meeting more than most to get across his points, and has thus has a particualr understanding of how to use public meetings to maximum effect. read full story / add a comment
