Mick Murphy is the Socialist Party/United Left Alliance candidate for Dublin South West in the general election. Mick has been active fighting for working people for more than 20 years. He was a leading figure in the successful Anti Water Charges Campaign.

 

Mick was a key organiser in fighting the Bin Tax in 2003 and spent 3 weeks in Mountjoy Prison for his opposition to the double tax. Mick warned that, if implemented, the charge would increase and result in the privatisation of the service.

Along with Joe Higgins MEP, Mick played a key role in exposing the GAMA construction scandal where Turkish workers were paid €2 an hour on publicly funded projects. As a Councillor he stood alone in opposing the Tallaght Town Centre Development, warning that the inevitable crash of the property bubble would result in the dereliction in those apartment complexes. Mick is active in the Tallaght Hostpital Action Group.

The ‘butterfly effect’ is used to explain a complicated theory touching on mathematics and meteorology. It posits that the flap of the slender wings of a butterfly could create minuscule changes in the atmosphere that might ultimately be sufficiently enhanced to accelerate or delay a faraway tornado or alter its path. The idea might help explain recent dramatic events in the Sahel region of north Africa, notably the French military intervention in Mali and the murderous events at the In Amenas energy plant in south east Algeria.
