Keir Starmer says he will never withdraw from the ECHR because there is "no need" and Rishi Sunak did not disagree, despite it being the reason he failed to stop the boats. Nigel Farage says it's time to ask the people.

A Swiss girl has been been taken into care because her parents stopped her taking puberty blockers, breaching a ban on conversion therapy. Is this what Labour means by a "full, trans-inclusive ban on conversion practices"?

The West's headlong rush to jettison fossil fuels and hit 'Net Zero' CO2 emissions is impoverishing us while enriching China, which is ramping up its coal-fired industry to sell us all the 'green' technology.

'Populists' like Donald Trump and Nigel Farage are a "threat to democracy", chant the mainstream media. In fact, they are just reminding our politicians what they are supposed to be doing, says Prof James Alexander.

Douglas Street Community Celebrates International Women's Day... In Style!

A community rouses itself to honour women and their struggles for a better world

Celebrating in Style!

A 'miracle' of grassroots community organising happened yesterday – the community of Douglas Street, Cork came together and hosted an incredible diverse and immensely satisfying celebration of International Women's Day!

This was a remarkable day of events dedicated to the celebration and recognition of the achievements of women and to the celebration of the contribution of women down the centuries to the struggles for human rights, workplace rights, social justice and democracy worldwide. A programme of over forty events organised on a shoestring (a shoestring gladly supplied jointly by the Independent Workers' Union and the Cork branch of the Workers' Solidarity Movement) went ahead with almost no hitches, with a truly diverse range of talks, workshops, activities, performances and more that brought hundreds to Douglas St. From ten in the morning to very late at night.

Many thanks are due to the group of women (and a few men) who put in a magnificent organising effort, especially Deirdre who must have visited every house in the neighbourhood while putting the programme together for this magical day of celebration.

One could write for hours describing the variety of activities on the day, so perhaps it is simpler and better to illustrate the day's events with photographs from the nearly-a-dozen venues involved. Hope you enjoy them.
