International solidarity week with the Basque Country (February18-24)

04-02-2008 13:34

These are hard times for the Basque Country. We know that we will resist as we owe this to our children. We are ready. 50 years of modern struggle. We resisted Franco as well as all Spanish governments from left to right. They all got bog down with the Basque Country and it will continue until the French and Spanish authorities recognise the reality and the rights of our country.
We are calling on international solidarity to mobilise (International Solidarity Week with the Basque Country, February 18-24), to denounce the denial of political and social rights, so that our country can build democratically a sovereign, proud and socialist society.

Who Owns Ireland's Paedo-Files/ The Pope or the People?

04-02-2008 12:14

Accessing the Diocese of Dublin's secret files on paedophelia is a question with ramifications that go back to the initial colonising of the island by the Papacy. The theft of Ireland by the Papacy from the native pagans and given to the English (Henry 11) recalls the initial plantation of Ireland by the Norman/French/English Christians. While they now call themselves 'The Irish', the question as to who owns the files relating to criminal matter ('criminous clerks' and paedophiles) has raised the question as to who owns iRELAND, the Pope or the People.
