Republic of Ireland

Richard Boyd Barrett TD speaking in the Dail:

Elected Representatives

United Left Alliance

Who are the United Left Alliance (ULA)?

We are an alliance of left wing groups, including the People Before Profit Alliance and individuals who came together for the General Election 2011.

The Alliance is opposed to the governments’ bailouts and the slash and burn policies which are only making the crisis worse. In the general election we aim to provide a real alternative to the establishment parties as well as Labour and Sinn Fein, who also accept the capitalist market and refuse to rule out coalition with right wing parties. The approach of a Fine Gael / Labour government in power would not be fundamentally different than this government.

The ULA stood candidates including Cllr Richard Boyd Barrett (PBPA), Cllr Joan Collins (PBPA), MEP Joe Higgins (SP) & Cllr Seamus Healy (TWUG) throughout the country and all the above were elected.

Love Music Hate Racism

As long as there are elements of our society that continue to promote anger by the scapegoating and targeting immigrants including migrant workers, refugees, asylum seekers or even students, we need to work to expose these myths and challenge racist ideas.

 

Love Music Hate Racism Ireland wants to promote racial integration and education through musically orientated events, public meetings, workshops, and most importantly by working together with different communities to address the issues they find important. We will be putting on events across the country ranging from open mike and acoustic sessions, to gigs with full bands and DJs, targeting music of all tastes, cultures and genres. We will also incorporate art, sport and family events into this work.

We aim to have a network of support for each and every person involved in LMHR across the county and we encourage you to make suggestions and to put on your own events and start your own groups with help from this network.

Garth Brooks Concerts and Corporate Greed

Garth Brooks fans have been messed around but they should not blame the residents who live near Croke Park.
The real cause of the problem has been naked corporate greed. From the moment the first Garth Brooks concerts were announced you could almost see the dollar signs in the eyes of the concert promoters, Croke Park executives, profiteering hoteliers and greedy restauranteurs and publicans.

The Ghost of William Martin Murphy haunts Greyhound

The ghost of William Martin Murphy is haunting Greyhound, one of Dublin’s largest waste collection companies. In one of the most daring attacks on organised workers in recent years, the company’s owners are demanding that workers accept a pay cut of 35 percent.

Attacks on the poorest, is this what Labour believes is fair!

by Louise Bayliss, PBPA candidate in Mulhuddart, Dublin

Thursday 15th May was UN Day of the Family. Coincidentally, it was the day the lone parent organisations were invited into the Department of Social Protection to inform then about the impact of cuts to lone parents.

The rationale of the policy introduced by Minister Burton in Budget 2012 was to activate lone parents back into employment. She acknowledged that statistically lone parents, and their children, are the most disadvantaged and poorest in our society and that therefore some drastic changes were needed.
