#OccupyEyreSquare: Public Awareness Day, today 1pm

Come along to hear some key speakers on issues relating to the economic MESS we are all facing! This will be a day of solidarity with Occupy protests taking place in over 1600 cities worldwide. Come and show your support and have YOUR voice heard. Live music, refreshments and fun to be had as well!

Occupy Galway is part of the international movement against austerity measures imposed on ordinary people around the world. We are all part of the 99% who, so far, have been subject to economic inequality and social injustice from the 1% who control the world's resources. We, the 99% demand:

1 - The removal of the IMF and ECB from all Irish financial affairs;
2 - That the national debt imposed on Irish people from the bank bailouts be lifted;
3 - The return of Irish resources (gas, oil, forestry) to the people of Ireland;
4 - Real particpatory democracy.

THIS IS NOT A RECESSION, IT'S A ROBBERY!!!

See you there! read full story / add a comment

The Palestinians are poised to make their case to the UN . Statehood or observational status.the Palestinians are being provoked to retaliate against the continued expansion of Israel into their territories, The illegal Separation Wall wall runs through farms , bisecting Palestinian farms - sure he can travel a couple of miles to get to the other side of his farm .
The Israelis are in continuous violation of UN mandates every day . Yet the Israelis have a vote at the General Assembly of the UN .
They are now trying to block the Palestinians from any form of alliance with the UN . The General assembly will ratify Palestine as as an observer country . And now at last Palestine will have it within her grasp to demand the return of illegal land grasp taken during the 1967 war. read full story / add a comment

The AFAR group has been contacted by various people expressing their disgust at the prospect of an animal abusing event in Galway. Are Donkey derbys not a relic of bygone days?
This is the front page of the CURRENT Galway Independent. As part of a forthcoming "comedy" festival, radio presenter (Hector OhEochagáin) is publicising a Donkey Derby.
AFAR is totally opposed to cruel spectacles especially in light of the increasing number of horse and equine cases that have come to light.animal violations are increasing at an alarming rate as any one will confirm who is involved in animal protection.
This farce of bygone days shows lact of iniative and forethought and blatent disregard for sentient gentle animals.

It's calamity enough for Ireland to lose its sovereignty to the IMF and EU through economic treason without salt being rubbed into our debt slavery wounds with further abasement, but that's in store for us in May or at least for those who spinelessly acquiesce and exult in the visits of two totems of imperial power, one an out and out war criminal. read full story / add a comment
