(en) Ireland, Anarchist journal Workers Solidarty #92 - THAT's CAPITALISM

Date Tue, 27 Jun 2006 09:34:03 +0300


Slaving your life away just so you can make
ends meet; having no say in the major deci-
sions that affect your life; criminal politicians
and businessmen plundering the country.
Try to do something about it and they'll lock
you up. Yes, that's capitalism

NEUTRAL MY ARSE
From January to March of
this year 116,450 US troops
have passed through Shannon
Airport. In 2004 the figure
was 121,943, by the end of
2005 the numbers more than
doubled to 330,000. This year
we may see just under half
million troops go through the
airport. Yet the government
continues to proclaim
Ireland's `neutrality'!

WHOEVER PAYS THE PIPER...?
Trinity College Dublin is
getting !1,000,000 from
Coca-Cola to establish
two full time posts in
"international economics
and competition policy". The
same college's Computer
Science department also
received "research funding"
from the US Air Force.

LAND OF THE FREE (ENTERPRISE)
While the US government
proclaims its love for
democracy and freedom in
Iraq, at home the President
of Local 100 of the Transport
Workers Union in New York
was sentenced to 10 days
in jail for leading a strike
last December. Other union
officials were fined.

THE RICH GET RICHER
A rising tide may lift all boats,
but some get a lot more of a
rise than others. In the years
1995-2003 wages & pensions
in the 26 counties went up
126% but profits and self-
employed income grew by
189%. And that's without
knowing how much extra
profit is hidden in offshore
bank accounts.

THE LESS HE DOES, THE MORE HE GETS
Bank of Ireland finance
director Gary Kennedy got
a whopping 3.5 million in
salary, bonus and pension
top-up after he resigned (or
as they put it, "stepped down"
from his job). Maybe the Irish
Bank Officials Association
should lodge a claim for
similar money for the staff
who do actual work!
