  1. Protest: 18th June Assemble at Wolfe Tone Monument, Stephens Green @ 1pm March to American Chamber of Commerce, 6 Wilton Place, Dublin 2
  2. Time: 12:00 venue: Garden of Remembrance INTERNATIONAL PROTEST 1st JUNE JOIN AND SHARE! Europe is under a violent attack by the financial capital, represented by the troika (IMF, ECB, EC) and by the successive governments that apply concerted policies with these entities, despising and destroying the people. We know that this offensive is set on breaking the peoples, rendering them slaves of debt and austerity. This offensive crosses Europe and it must be defeated by an international struggle. Each one of us, in each country, in each city, in each house, with our own specificities, feels directly the measures that annihilate the rights conquered throughout the decades, measures which aggravate unemployment, privatize everything that can make a profit and repel the countries' sovereignties under the propaganda of "external help". It is urgent that we join forces to fight-off this attack. The appeal we launched for a decentralized international protest has circulated through dozens of movements in Spain, France, Italy, Greece, Cyprus, Ireland, England, Scotland, Germany and Slovenia. Several international activists, from different European countries, were present In a meeting on the 26th of April, in Lisbon, where this international proposal was discussed. In the end, we reached a consensus to launch an international protest for the next 1st of June, under the motto "Peoples United Against the Troika!". This is the beginning of a decentralized, inclusive and participatory process. We wish to build it collectively, joining all forces available. Henceforth, the date of the 1st of June will be spread on a European scale, and we urge everyone to join this international protest against the troika and against austerity... for the peoples to take control of their lives. We urge all citizens, with or without party, with or without a job, with or without hope, to join us. We urge all political organizations, social movements, unions, parties, collectives, informal groups, to join us. We wish to continue to broaden our contacts, both nationally and internationally, for we are aware that only the sum of our voices can stop the new waves of austerity that are being prepared. The peoples of Europe have demonstrated in several moments that they're not available for more sacrifices, in the name of a future that will never come. The time has come for a massive demonstration of the capacity of these peoples to coordinate the struggle against these policies. From the North to the South of Europe, let us take the streets against austerity!

  5. In the spring of 2012, a massive student strike in opposition to a tuition hike, rocked the streets of the Montréal for over six months. Protests and militant street actions became part of the daily and nightly reality of this Canadian metropolis. Several times during this tumultuous spring, the numbers in the streets would reach over one hundred thousand. Police routinely clubbed students and their allies, and arrested them by the hundreds. Some were even banned from entering the city. But every time the cops struck, the student movement got bigger and angrier. This is a story about how the arrogance of a government, underestimated a dedicated group of students, who through long term organizing laid the foundation for some of the largest mass demonstrations in Canada’s history. But it is also a story of how a crews of determined anarchists, educated a new generation of students, in the importance of owning the streets. In Street Politics 101, subMedia.tv features some of the best footage from what some called “the maple spring.” It also features interviews with students, teachers and anarchists involved in one of the most militant rebellions in Quebec.

    Weird Creatures!

    Fungie / Fungi the Dingle Dolphin In 1984, a young bottle-nosed dolphin started to appear at the mouth of Dingle Harbour. The now world-famous dolphin has remained in Dingle since, and has become both a friend to the locals and a great "attraction" for visitors. Christened "Fungie" by the local fishermen, the male dolphin lives and plays within a small area at the mouth of Dingle Harbour, overlooked by the lighthouse. A small cave under the cliffs at Burnham is thought to be his home, and from dawn till late night, Fungie is always around to welcome boats, trawlers and yachts to the Town. He is a curious and friendly animal, and has been photographed bringing gifts to divers of still living fish, clasped gently within his jaws. But to show his freedom, Fungie never accepts gifts from divers, or fish thrown from returning trawlers.

  16. Anarchism "assumes that the burden of proof for anyone in a position of power and authority lies on them," explains Chomsky. May 28, 2013 | The following is the adapted text of an interview that first appeared in Modern Success magazine. So many things have been written about, and discussed by, Professor Chomsky, it was a challenge to think of anything new to ask him: like the grandparent you can’t think of what to get for Christmas because they already have everything. So I chose to be a bit selfish and ask him what I’ve always wanted to ask him. As an out-spoken, actual, live-and-breathing anarchist, I wanted to know how he could align himself with such a controversial and marginal position. Michael S. Wilson: You are, among many other things, a self-described anarchist — an anarcho-syndicalist, specifically. Most people think of anarchists as disenfranchised punks throwing rocks at store windows, or masked men tossing ball-shaped bombs at fat industrialists. Is this an accurate view? What is anarchy to you? Continue Reading >>> http://www.alternet.org/civil-liberties/noam-chomsky-kind-anarchism-i-believe-and-whats-wrong-libertarians
  17. But how is replacing one form of repression with that of another, any different? Unless the bulk of global production is brought under disciplined Communist control globally and in one swoop, social inequalities will continue to exist as long as the State is still used as a means to protect private property rights while maintaining an unjust, wage system. What I find abhorrent about it all is that some of that repression will be either directly or indirectly, forced upon the working class, and against those living in poverty who are forced to act against the interests of the State, in order to survive.

    Its kinda like old'skool drum & bass. This is a great track by Goldie:
  21. How can State-Capitalism be anything other than repressive when without abolishing the wage system that is central plank to Socialism, the division of labour remains and the expropriation of the worker persists, further more, prolonging the suffering through despotism of the working masses by the ruling class.?
