Is this attack on an Aid ship Israel's taking advantage of an erstwhile preoccupied and unfortunate American President ? Or is it just more of Israel doing what Israel does best ..taking murderous and disproportionate action against civilians to further subjugate the Palestinian people - and doing all of this under the pre configured ideation imprinted on the Israeli mind that Europe 'owes' her because of the Holocaust - and therefore whatever would be deemed unacceptable by another country is Ok for Israel ? read full story / add a comment

According to the International Trade Union Confederation more than 2500 trade union activists have been killed in Colombia during the last fifteen years. Despite the fact that trade union activists in Colombia are seldom guilty of anything more than seeking to secure decent working conditions for themselves and their communities, they face severe ongoing repression including abduction, torture, intimidation and murder. There is a culture of impunity in Colombia, and those who commit these acts are seldom held accountable.
Following on from a well- attended introductory panel discussion that was held in Galway last October, Galway Trades Council and coalition of Trade Union and Human Rights campaigners are delighted to have the opportunity to host a public talk on Thursday 27th of May in the Western Hotel, Prospect Hill featuring a visiting Colombian Union Leader Jorge Gamboa. read full story / add a comment
