Wipe out Fianna Fail

Socialist Party councillor Mick Barry this morning (Thursday 4 June) called on voters to double the Socialist Party representation in Cork City Council and to “wipe out” Fianna Fail in tomorrow’s elections.
Cllr Barry is standing for re-election in Cork North Central and his party colleague Dave Keating is seeking election in the Cork North East ward.
Cllr Barry said:  “I am calling for a massive turnout tomorrow to wipe out Fianna Fail.  But it is very important that genuine fighters for working class people are well represented on the Council and a doubling of Socialist Party representation would be an important step forward.”
The Socialist Party may be set to make important breakthroughs in this election with Joe Higgins very much in the race to win a European seat in the Dublin constituency.
Cllr Barry, who has led and organised a “people power” campaign to save the number 12 bus service in the midst of his re-election campaign, said:  “Unlike others, Socialist Party candidates will not criticise Fianna Fail in the middle of an election then go down to City Hall to join hands with them and vote for cuts in jobs and services.  Socialist Party councillors will not soften their coughs and will staunchly defend the interests of working class people on the Council.  Our message is: get out and vote for real fighters tomorrow.”

Review: Dancing Shoes: The George Best Story

In an obituary of George Best, comrade Peter Hadden wrote “George Best composed poetry with his feet”. What a wonderful complement to a football genius from the working class streets of Belfast. And now Marie Jones and Martin Lynch have gone one further. They have “Besty” using those poetic feet dancing. And that soft Northern Irish accent singing in their unforgettable play “Dancing Shoes - The George Best Story”.

The other 9/11 – The Pinochet Coup in Chile 1973

The capitalist media and commentators have given great emphasis to discussing the consequences and lessons of the 9/11 attacks on the Twin Towers in New York a decade ago. Yet this was not the first ‘9/11’. Following the first 9/11, thousands were slaughtered and thousands more tortured and suffered the horrific consequences which followed. This slaughter took place not in the US but in Chile on September 11th 1973. It was planned and executed not from the tribal territories of Afghanistan or Pakistan but in the head-quarters of the CIA and the White House, in collusion with the ruling elite in Chile and its armed forces. This 9/11 should be commemorated, and its lessons studied, by socialists and workers everywhere.
