Vilma’s example today is more necessary than ever. She devoted her entire life to the struggle for women’s rights when in Cuba most women were discriminated against as human beings, the same as in the rest of the world, with only the honorable revolutionary exceptions...

Gordon Brown should ignore the FT and scrap the Crossrail hole plot...

20-06-2007 10:18

The London FT is this week leading the lobby for globalizing conglomerates who are set to push Gordon Brown into a corner so they can extract the loot of £20 Billion which they can pocket under the guise of the Crossrail hole plot in London. But Gordon Brown must not collude with them and should in fact put a halt to Crossrail now. It has already wasted more than £500million of public money in consultants fees and promotions.

A time for change in Ireland

19-06-2007 18:10

Who do we blame?

Is youth the key to the spiralling increase in anti-social behaviour or has the youth of today just taken example from their peers and enhanced the problem to a modern 21st century process in destabilising society. Does the problem go back further than what we are prepared to accept and have we now come to a stage where we need to re-evaluate the way we cherish freedom and human rights.
We see AIDS as being a threat to human existence. We now see ASB as a threat to the stability of our society and subsequently human existence in itself.

For numerous reasons this strategy will also fail.
