Black & Tans were "no angels" - major concession by Ken Loach critic

BY CHRISTOPHER BARRETT An Phoblacht July 6 2006

Before it went on release, 'critics' who had not seen it, denounced Ken Loach's The Wind that Shakes the Barley. The London Times critic compared it to Nazi propaganda - ironic considering the role of ex-Black & Tans in reactionary and fascist politics in Britain. In the Daily Mail Ruth Dudley Edwards asked: "Why does Ken Loach loath his country so much?" - a question better addressed by Ruth to a mirror. Ruth also, in the manner of death penalty advocates discussing 'humane' methods of killing, informed us that the British Empire was "the most humane"...... ever, so there. read full story / add a comment

interview with Ciaron O'Reilly of the Catholic Worker and Pitstop Ploughshare action at Shannon Airport in February 2003.

audio
mp3 22mins 43 secs


This weekend, Ireland is the site of much parading and rhetoric about independence, sovereignty and freedom, as many commemorate the blood sacrifice of hundreds of men and women who participated in the "1916 Rising".

Currently, Ireland facilitates the passage of 900 US troops per day on their way to an imperial war in Iraq, and back again (sometimes in bodybags, often wounded). CIA flights through Shannon and Baldonnell airports have been documented by consciencious citizens.

The Irish police harrasse and intimidate such citizens, and leave all planes (through a civilian airport in the case of Shannon), untouched or actively guard them.

A majority of the people of Ireland oppose the Coalition occupation of Iraq, but the Irish government they elect, prefers to sign away Ireland's supposed sovereignty, to Empire.

Is there any government that cannot be bought? any principle that is not for sale?
