La grande grève dublinoise de 1913

La grande grève dublinoise de 1913

D’ailleurs, le pain devient très vite le nerf de la guerre. Des comités d’aide aux grévistes, souvent animés par les femmes issues des mouvements nationalistes et féministes, comme l’actrice Maud Gonne ou Constance – « la Comtesse Rouge » – Markievicz, organisent des soupes populaires « rouges » ou de « charité ». Des chargements de nourriture sont envoyés par les syndicats anglais. Et c’est là que l’Église catholique réveille son vieux démon : cette charité internationaliste ressemble trop à un complot pour convertir ses ouailles aux diaboliques athéisme et pire, protestantisme. Avec le projet des syndicalistes d’envoyer en Angleterre les enfants affamés de Dublin pour les sauver, la coupe est pleine ! Walsh, l’évêque de Dublin, dira : « Elles ne méritent plus le nom de mères catholiques si elles oublient leur devoir au point d’envoyer leurs enfants dans un pays étranger… » L’Église reçoit le soutien de quelques grands noms de la cause nationaliste comme Arthur Griffith, fondateur du Sinn Féin.

Uncertain State: Photography & the crisis in Ireland

How is photography responding to the crisis? Uncertain State looks at how photographic artists are representing this period of austerity and uncertainty in Ireland. Their work addresses important issues at the heart of where we are now: contested and hidden histories, effects of the global financial crisis and the radically altered social and physical landscapes. The ten artists in Uncertain State go beyond surface readings to reflect the emerging concerns in post-Celtic Tiger Ireland: the treatment of asylum seekers; institutional abuse; sexual abuse; emigration; the legacy of the property crash; identity; disadvantage & marginalisation; and the legacy of conflict.

Ireland : Bankers joke about their €7 billion bailout scam - World Socialist Web Site

Ireland: Bankers joke about their €7 billion bailout scam
By Steve James
29 June 2013

Transcripts released this week by the Irish Independent record conversations in 2008 between leading Irish bank executives, joking about how they had scammed billions of euros to bail out the now-defunct Anglo-Irish Bank.

The conversations provide an insight into the reckless, sneering cynicism of the ruling elite as they proceeded to swindle the working people to the tune of trillions of euros.

Bankers Caught On Tape, Joking About Bailout, And How They'd Never Pay It Back - YouTube

Bankers Caught On Tape, Joking About Bailout, And How They'd Never Pay It Back - YouTube

The Irish Independent, a Dublin-based newspaper, has uncovered tapes of an internal phone conversation from September 2008 between two executives at Anglo Irish Bank during its bailout deal and they sound pretty scandalous. The Irish Independent points out that the recordings show they misled the Central Bank.

The executives from the recording have been identified as John Bowe (head of the bank's capital markets) and Peter Fitzgerald (director of retail banking).

However, Bowe “categorically denied” that he misled the Central Bank and Fitzgerald, who wasn't involved in discussions with regulators, said he was unaware of any intention to mislead, the report said.

Either way, the newly revealed recordings are still embarrassing.
