Skellig Michael: The Denial of History as State Policy

Hanshiro | On the South Peak of Skellig Michael, an altar, dating probably to the ninth century, has been destroyed by unsupervised workmen. In addition, there has been extensive rebuilding carried out on the main complex, which has led to considerable damage to the original structures. The work has proceeded without an Environmental Impact Assessment; while the Department of the Environment and OPW have argued that, because the Skelligs are a national monument (thus covered by the National Monuments Act 2004) and because the current work is part of an ongoing programme of conservation dating back to the 1980’s, neither an EIA nor planning permission is necessary. more...  0 Comments

Camera his weapon vs. injustice, Daily News Column

by Juan Gonzalez | Camera his weapon vs. injustice

When the bullets started to fly, New York photojournalist Bradley Will was clutching a camera, doing what he loved most - filming a group of downtrodden people fighting for respect in some forgotten corner of our world.
This was last Friday, on a narrow street on the outskirts of Oaxaca, Mexico, where Will, 36, a longtime member of New York's radical IndyMedia Center, had gone in early October to document an amazing story.

It is one our own national media somehow managed to ignore for five long months.

Top Ten Revolutionary Movies of All Time

Other Brother |

In honor of the recent release of the 25th anniversary edition of Reds on DVD and the recent passing of Italian revolutionary film maker Gillo Pontecorvo, I’ve been searching my archives for some of the top ten revolutionary movies of all time. In choosing this list I decided to focus on features rather than documentaries (Hence the absence of fine films such as Harlan County, USA, The Take and Fuck the Army). Enjoy. more...  8 Comments

Hausman Street vs. Exxon

Greenpoint Oil Spill Part III: The Law Suit
The Residents of Hausman Street Speak

Few of the young and hip members of the gentrifying generation have ever been to Hausman Street in northeast Greenpoint, ground zero for the 17-million-gallon underground oil spill that has Exxon battling three lawsuits in federal court and, soon, the state attorney general. The block is as genuinely Brooklyn as they come—working-class row houses, people chatting on their stoops, watching the street life, speaking English or Polish. There are block parties, whether impromptu or organized a month in advance. The people you meet on the street are not shy to tell you that they are as proud of their blue-collar station in life as they are of the homes they have owned for decades, which are now worth over half a million dollars...
