The Little People speak out on behalf of the little people.
We Leprechauns, friends of the Irish People,
hereby give notice
of our latest collective decision,
and address ourselves to that social grouping
commonly known as the Irish political class.
Down through the ages we have strained every nerve
on your behalf:
we have always aided you
when you were sorely prest.
The marauding Danes,
robbers of the chalice,
landed long ago;
when Brian Boru and his fighters overcame them,
we guarded the gold they left behind:
in pots, in bags, under rocks, beneath crags,
we kept it safe. read full story / add a comment
This oil find also explodes the myth, carefully scripted, that we have no resources, that we are poor and therefore have to rely upon the begging-bowl from the EU and others.

The Anonymous collective have launched a WikiLeaks-like site called Par:AnoIA (Potentially Alarming Research: Anonymous Intelligence Agency). They won't gather the data themselves but will take submissions.
The project was created as a response to a year of Anonymous releases where the announcement of document dumps generated plenty of media, but the documents’ content got little coverage.
“The reason no one cares about these leaks, as a general rule of thumb, is that they can’t do anything with [them],” said a Paranoia anon volunteering on document processing for the project in an online chat with Wired. “Basically, [we're] making it accessible to anyone that wants to do something with it, in a proper usable format.” read full story / add a comment

I'm putting up the full article as it requires registration to access it. Many activists are put off by this so please leave it up. It tells an important story about how land in the developing world is stolen, even by god fearing folk who made their money in private prisons. Another great article by Fred Pearce.
MIGHTY MOM was angry. She was doing her washing a few miles from Lake Victoria in east Africa, soaping her clothes in the shadow of a tall chain-link fence, behind which there was a large farm. The farm was owned by an evangelical American who had made his fortune running private prisons for state governments in the US before coming to Kenya and taking a leasehold to drain the Yala swamp and grow rice in place of papyrus. read full story / add a comment

For those of us who like a drink, but don't see ourselves as the type to march around with signs when banksters and politicians rob us and lose us our jobs, but still feel a tear when the anthem is played after the footy, here's a way we can get some relief and at the same time show our disdain for the crooks that helped get us into this bind. Lager louts and those with distended bladders who feel like "you're a nation" still, Here's an effective protest you can believe in! Go with the flow people ;-) read full story / add a comment

Aboriginal elders from Wiluna in central Western Australia have slammed the approval of a nearby future uranium mine by the state’s Environmental Protection Authority (EPA). It now appears only a matter of time for the state government to endorse the EPA decision.
The go-ahead is for the Toro Energy company's proposal to develop the first uranium mine in Western Australia 30 kilometres from Wiluna. Wiluna local and senior law man, Glen Cooke, criticised the consultation process that led to the EPA approval. Mr Cooke wants a meeting with state and federal ministers to fight for the safety and rights of his people.
