Up Rising

So there is the Arab spring which brought considerable change in places like libya, Egypt, Tunisia and is ongoing in Syria and other countries in the east.

This has been so because the people finally said ‘enough is enough’. They took to the streets when it was dangers to do so because they knew that this was more than just self sacrifice it was about much more than that.

The lesson people around the world should take from this is: the most powerful thing is millions of people not calling for change but taking action to make sure it happens.

Greece was once a strong nation with strong people who thought the world but now it seems they have been pushed to ground and are asking for a hand to help them rise. Well I say if Greece wants to rise from the cauldron of financial burden, foreign interference then they need to take to the streets again! To get what they want.

The same applies to All nations around the world for who’s society in stuck in reverse and people are suffering but yet this is unknown to those implementing austerity and are unaffected by it.

The Irish people were known to a rebellious bunch of people and usually we were the torn in someone’s side but give us some money and we’ll quickly turn into a bunch materialistic. Individual passive people.

Here you will find a list of days when Ireland rebelled against what it thought as not right for the Irish, 1534 1569–73, 1579–83, 1594–1603, 1641, 1642–52, 1798, 1799–1803, 1800, 1803, 1804, 1848, 1866–71, 1867, 1867-1885, 1882–83 and of course 1916

These dates are in the past but we cannot forget them because of all those people who fought and died in the name of Ireland and to allow there families to live in Ireland.

All of our political parties have come from these times with those values of people power and doing things in the interest of Irish people yet none of then represent our needs in today’s society or our needs in Europe. I have said it before and I’ll say it again.

James Connolly especially must be continuously turning in his grave to find Ireland’s labour party has become not a workers party but I right wing party which oppresses people and frowns upon protests and people power.

I just hope that people Ireland open their eyes and finally realise what they are living in is a mess where people are treated like working ants and have no say in this “democracy”.

“Stand up and shout as loud as you can, someone will listen”

Yes or Else!

We are now a country of scare mongrels where the truth doesn’t get the answer we want. The current government, more than once has tried to scare people into submission. It may have worked for Lisbon BUT NO MORE! We will not be scared into voting YES or NO. we will vote whatever we see fit for Ireland based on the facts provided.

I personally find it very undemocratic when my own government try to scare me into voting YES or face a tougher budget. This is a treaty for Europe.

It is not for the Irish people. And I don’t believe the government should be telling citizens that a yes vote will bring jobs and sustainability when clearly they haven’t been able to stick to their election promises so this will be no different.

Bailing out the people not the banks.

Should the Irish government have some how secured control of Irish mortgages that are in negative equity and/or arrears so they could restructure them for the people. As NAMA is said to incur massive losses surely an extra few hundred million or billions would have been worth it especially if it saves families from foreclosures, homelessness and despair.  

my calculations suggest the cost of buying 300,000 mortgages at an average of 200,00 would have been the same cost of bailing the banks out. 75 billion euros.

Capitalism is at a new beginning.
