"The Life and Politics of an Irish Revolutionary"

jj | "In a very real sense, Ruairí Ó Bradáigh can . . . be said to be the last, or one of the last Irish Republicans. Studies of the Provisional movement to date have invariably focused more on the Northerners and the role of people like Gerry Adams and Martin McGuinness. But an understanding of them is not possible without appreciating where they came from and from what tradition they have broken. Ruairí Ó Bradáigh is that tradition and that is why this account of his life and politics is so important."

Unions and the Growth Mania

Elmar Altvater | The more productivity advances, the less labor is needed to realize a certain growth rate.. When investments are made, they usually serve rationalization and lead to the loss of jobs given the competitive pressure on the international markets..

A strategy beyond growth should be developed that concentrates on renewable sources of energy. more...  0 Comments

Upper Eastside Greenmarkets Very, Very Close

Peakguy | Regular readers know that I've been agitating to bring more locally grown food to my neighborhood for quite some time. This is because locally grown food consumes a lot less (about 75% less) fossil fuels than factory farm, industrial agriculture from long distances. This will be important as energy prices increase in preserving local farmland and decreasing the lines of supply for our food.
Well, that dream just got one step closer to becoming a reality tonight: The Streetfair committee of Community Board 8 voted in favor of both locations - PS 6 (82nd bet Madison & Park) AND St. Stephen's church (82nd bet 1st & York).

It was like a scene from Woody Allen movie about local democracy on the UES: Angry co-op boards, Park Avenue socialites, PTA moms, local food celebrity, politicians...if only I wrote screenplays!
