There are 161 people in this country looking for a new political organisation. Sadly agressive little mobs
have an ability to re-structure and re-group at enormous rates of rapidity. They will not be doing so in time
for the next set of elections:


Before she left she destroyed the healthcare system , aided and abetted by centre-right party, The Greens.


The Sunday papers will busily eulogise on her contribution to Women's Politics, whilst it is evident
that she has dealt women's health issues a cancerous body blow. She copper-fastened the most
brutal econmic inequality and two-tier approach to women's health since the foundation of the state.

Let's be frank about it, Mary Harney's Genital Warts story is a shame crying out for a tongue wagging.

As the most cultured amongst us know this year's Nobel Prize for Medicine and Physiology was shared by scientists in that trade who have made inroads in the virus research lark. One laureate managed to link up the HPV group of viruses with cervical cancer & before you could say "love me warts and all" most European states decided to vaccinate young wans against only 3 of the near 100 strains of HPV or "genital warts" a virus which indeed doesn't always produce warts...........it being a sly killer and all. read full story / add a comment

Marie Stopes International (MSI) has become the first reproductive
health agency to offer Irish women abortion consultation and
counselling services by telephone. The charity has also reduced its
fees by the average cost of a discount air fare from Ireland to
England, to alleviate the financial hardship faced by many Irish women
who have to travel overseas to obtain abortion services.

When the Irish constitution was unveiled in 1937 it set out a special place for women within the home. In Ireland as elsewhere ‘women’s life within the home’ has to a large extent been characterized by long hours of thankless drudgery. While the struggles of Irish women for greater liberties during the last century have improved our lives in many ways, the drudgery of housework remains thankless and the workplace has not brought the liberation that certain feminists promised. As anarchists see it, this is because as long as we live in a capitalist society women (or men) can never be meaningfully liberated. read full story / add a comment

Here is an extract of An interview with Mariam of RAWA. The Revolutionary Association of the Women of Afghanistan (RAWA) is a women's organization that runs underground schools and other projects, educates Afghan girls, runs a periodic journal, and agitates politically for women's rights, human rights, secularism, and social justice in Afghanistan. Full text at link.

From the beginning, RAWA announced that the US and the West have their own reasons for being here and it is not for the freedom of the Afghan people. We said that what the US/NATO is doing under the name of democracy is in fact a mockery of democracy. It is clear for us. Today NATO bombings are increasing, more civilians are being killed, and other violations are being done by the US and NATO. And now even they are trying to share power with the Taliban and terrorist party of Gulbuddin Hekmatyar. read full story / add a comment

Kobra Najjar, an Iranian woman sentenced to death by stoning for adultery has lost her final appeal for amnesty. Iranian women’s rights activists working on her case saythat Kobra has exhausted all domestic legal remedies and that her execution by stoning could happen any time. Kobra is a victim of domestic violence who was forced into prostitution by her abusive husband in order to support his heroin addiction. He was murdered by one of Kobra’s “clients” who sympathized with her plight. Kobra has already served 8 years in prison as an accessory to her husband’s murder. The man who murdered her husband also served 8 years in prison and was free after paying blood money and undergoing 100 lashes, while Kobra faces imminent stoning to death for adultery - the prostitution her husband forced upon her. Yet another example of Iranian justice. read full story / add a comment

“Where pride once mobilised, it now marshals that consensus as our anger and frustration into a range of diversionary shopping opportunities. The battle is no longer about(if it ever has been) equality and acceptance, but liberation and simply survival as human beings against a system galloping towards the abyss.” read full story / add a comment
