Revolution Ireland 2010








The national liberation struggle for justice by the Irish people of no property, is part of the struggle against imperialism, as a corrupt system brought to Ireland originally by the British colonialists. Eight centuries of Irish struggle with  intense oppression and exploitation of its children, women and men, has created the necessity, inevitability of a revolution, leading all-the-way to physical, mental, emotional and spiritual liberation, as part of a worldwide revolutionary process.







Justice and Peace Shall Kiss


I am slowly waking to a dirt floor
damp air world. I am waking up
to my younger sisters’ aged faces,
failing teeth, quiet determination.
I am waking up to women worrying
for children gone in hope and missed
in sorrow. I am waking up.

At this dawn we greet, hug, hold—
a cariñoso kiss—among sisters
from different worlds but with hearts
in a common place—a morning
greeting for a day of challenge.
I am waking up.

Se Besarán la Justicia y La Paz

Despacio despierto en un mundo
con pisos de tierra, aire húmedo,
a las caras envejecidas de mis hermanas
menores, dientes quebrados, con tranquila resolución.
Despierto a mujeres preocupadas por niños que salieron
en esperanza y echaban de menos.
Duelo constante. Despierto.

En el amanecer nos saludamos, nos abrazamos, nos agarramos----
Un beso cariñoso---entre hermanas
De mundos distintos pero
corazones semejantes ---un saludo matutino
para un día de retos
Despierto.

Demands for McGuinness and Adams to Resign In Child Sex Scandal







The controversy surrounding child abuse by Catholic clergy in Ireland
has taken a new twist when it was revealed recently that not only did
the Vatican ignore requests by the Irish commission for abuse
investigations but also that Irish police and politicians continue to
play a leading role in the systematic cover up of evidence. A closer
look now shows that the church has interests that run parallel to
those local politicians and police officials exploiting defenceless
poor innocents in an orgy of unbridled greed and decades of vicious
lust.

While the inquiry originally charged Catholic church leaders with
concealing decades of abuse, it is now becoming clearer that the
PSNI/RUC and elected officials are also colluding in a cover-up, in
the occupied part of Ireland. The papal nuncio consistently ignores
requests for information. Vatican officials informed the Irish Foreign
Affairs department, that requests had failed to follow diplomatic
protocol during negotiations between Ireland and the Vatican.

The commission, argued that it was independent of the government and
was exempt from following diplomatic procedures in their request for
information. The commission failed to receive a proper reply after
sending the papal nuncio extracts from its draft report, which
referred to him and his office, as it was required to do, while the
Vatican replied that it was a matter for the local church involved.
Bearing in mind these facts, Cardinal Brady's apology for the decades
of brutal child abuse, as well as its concealment, doesn't appear very
sincere, to many of the victims.

Perhaps even more sinister than the Pope's "blind eye" to child abuse,
are allegations that Irish police officials, along with the British
paramilitary police in the occupied part of Ireland, participated in
hiding child abuse by local priests and politicians, while helping to
push the Roman Catholic agenda, within the republican movement, as
opposed to the traditional, non-sectarian principles of its founding
Protestant forefathers. Traditional republicans are demanding on this
basis alone, that the extremely Roman Catholic, McGuinness and Adams
resign immediately, because of their collusion in the scandal.

Liam Adams, brother of Westminster MP Gerry Adams worked with children
in a number of roles for almost 20 years, after his daughter and her
mother reported him to the British police and social services in
1987.A spokesperson for the Beechmount Community Project, for which
Liam Adams worked said, "We feel that serious lapses by both the
Social Services and the police have inexcusably put children and young
people within our project, at risk."

Neither would the British police comment on reports, Adams was given
police clearance to work at youth centres in west Belfast, after his
daughter and her mother reported him to the police in 1987. Gerry
Adams MP said he believed the allegations which he heard in 1987 and
that if he knew the whereabouts of his brother, he would have informed
the PSNI/RUC, so that Liam Adams could face the charges. It has since
been proven with photographic evidence and reliable witnesses, that Mr
Adams knew exactly where his brother was and therefore colluded in the
cover up, just like the bishops who have been forced to resign.


It is also believed that Margaret Thatcher on numerous visits to Rome
after the hunger strike, leaned heavily on the Pope to push this
agenda with their people, within the Irish republican movement. The
report also found that senior police officers colluded in both parts
of Ireland with the cover-up. As has always been the case in Ireland,
the local police force, politicians and Catholic clergy normally side
with the most powerful and wealthy, to attack the innocent,
vulnerable, people of no property, for their own selfish agendas.

Recent revelations have shocked ordinary people in the occupied part
of Ireland, the British paramiltary police PSNI/RUC and elected
political officials, are playing a significant role alongside the
church in continuing the abuse of children and the oppression of other
minorities. In the absence of any real democracy, calls have been made
for the dissident churches, dissenters, protestants to stand up for
the rights of children, an un-recognised minority, who are defenceless
against this rampant collusion of dark secretive religious state
forces.

As apparent Irish adults north and south of the border, loyal British
commoners and Irish citizens claim, that they care about children but
apparently in reality, many cannot remember that they themselves were
all once children. They seem to forget their responsibility to ensure,
that each child has the right to a childhood full of innocence and
loving stability, without lying elected officials or insensitive brute
police aiding and a betting these horrific crimes by parents or
supposed professional carers. Whether or not this is what a given
religion believes, it is what a proper police force should be doing,
enforcing the safety of children rather than colluding with a rotten
political system of abuse with barbarian exploitation and state
brutality of society's most vulnerable to feed their insatiable greed,
ego, control issues and sickness.

A clear majority of traditional Irish republicans now demand the
resignation of both McGuinness and Adams immediately on the basis of
bringing their non-sectarian principles of liberty, equality and
fraternity into disrepute.

The Declaration of the Rights of Man and of the Citizen of 1789
defined Liberty as follows;

"Liberty consists of being able to do anything that does not harm
others: thus, the exercise of the natural rights of every man or woman
has no bounds other than those that guarantee other members of society
the enjoyment of these same rights."

Equality as defined by the 1789 Declaration as:

The law "must be the same for all, whether it protects or punishes.
All citizens, being equal in its eyes, shall be equally eligible to
all high offices, public positions and employments, according to their
ability, and without other distinction than that of their virtues and
talents."

Fraternity, "Man of all countries are brothers, him who oppress one
nation declares itself enemy of all."

As requested, here are the lyrics in English and in Irish. I only sang two of the Irish verses:

O MY Dark Rosaleen,
Do not sigh, do not weep!
The priests are on the ocean green,
They march along the deep.
There 's wine from the royal Pope,
Upon the ocean green;
And Spanish ale shall give you hope,
My Dark Rosaleen!
My own Rosaleen!
Shall glad your heart, shall give you hope,
Shall give you health, and help, and hope,
My Dark Rosaleen!

Over hills, and thro' dales,
Have I roam'd for your sake;
All yesterday I sail'd with sails
On river and on lake.
The Erne, at its highest flood,
I dash'd across unseen,
For there was lightning in my blood,
My Dark Rosaleen!
My own Rosaleen!
O, there was lightning in my blood,
Red lightning lighten'd thro' my blood.
My Dark Rosaleen!

All day long, in unrest,
To and fro, do I move.
The very soul within my breast
Is wasted for you, love!
The heart in my bosom faints
To think of you, my Queen,
My life of life, my saint of saints,
My Dark Rosaleen!
My own Rosaleen!
To hear your sweet and sad complaints,
My life, my love, my saint of saints,
My Dark Rosaleen!

Woe and pain, pain and woe,
Are my lot, night and noon,
To see your bright face clouded so,
Like to the mournful moon.
But yet will I rear your throne
Again in golden sheen;
'Tis you shall reign, shall reign alone,
My Dark Rosaleen!

My own Rosaleen!
'Tis you shall have the golden throne,
'Tis you shall reign, and reign alone,
My Dark Rosaleen!
Over dews, over sands,
Will I fly, for your weal:
Your holy delicate white hands
Shall girdle me with steel.
At home, in your emerald bowers,
From morning's dawn till e'en,
You'll pray for me, my flower of flowers,
My Dark Rosaleen!
------------------
A Róisín, ná bíodh brón ort ná chás anois
tá do phárdún ó'n Róimh agus ó'n bPápa agat
tá na bráithre ag teacht thar
sáile agus ag tríall thar muir
'S ni ceilfear fíon Spáinneach ar mo Róisín Dubh

Tá grá agam i mo lár dhuit le blíain anois
grá cráite, grá cásmhar, grá ciapaithe
grá a d'fhág mé gan sláinte, gan rían, gan ruith
is go bráth, bráth, gan aon fháil a
leagadh ar mo Róisín Dubh

So...this song is quite different from anything of uploaded here! Many of you may not like this style as it is, one, in a different language, and two, acapella, but here goes anyway...
In honor of St. Patricks Day, only a month away, and in honor of my Irish roots and family, I've decided to put it up.
Here's a brief history lesson about Irealnd children ;)

Roisin Dubh (pronounced; row sheen dove) means Little Dark Rose or Dark Rosaleen in Gaelic. It's a traiditional Irish song that dates back to somewhere around the 16th-19th century and is one of Irelands most famous political songs. In a time where the Irish were not allowed to sing proud songs about their country, many songs arose that seemed to be about women or other subject matters, but were really a pseudonym for Ireland herself :)


My Dark Rosaleen is Ireland.

I hope you enjoy this bit of celtic flavor and if not, try not to be too harsh :) It is sung acapella as many Irish songs are traditionally sung. Enjoy!

Child Abuse Ireland, Does Anyone Really Care ?















In 1999 in Ireland, there was an attempt to prosecute a newspaper for a cartoon mocking the church, but the judge said that he could not prosecute, because there was no definition of what legally constituted blasphemy.
 Well now there is. The Irish Government has just passed one that protects the Catholic Church and the high and mighty, from blogs like this.  The law concerns itself with what might or might not cause "outrage among a substantial number of the adherents of [a] religion" (note, not just Catholics, Sinn Fein, Nuns, priests, everyone except atheists it seems. This blog would probably be deemed illegal in a court of irish law. Sinn Fein's deputy  first minister for the Queen in Ireland also wants dissident journalists gagged. There has been several journalists already assasinated recently in Ireland.
As Michael Nugent of Atheist Ireland pointed out:
"The proposed law does not protect religious belief; it incentivises outrage and it criminalises free speech. Under this proposed law, if a person expresses one belief about gods, and other people think that this insults a different belief about gods, then these people can become outraged, and this outrage can make it illegal for the first person to express his or her beliefs."
So Irish law has now enshrined that the taking of offence is more important than free speech or expression. If something might cause a motivated group of say paedophile Catholics to be "outraged",  then it is illegal, with a fine of up to €25,000 payable immediately or a long prison sentence.
A prosecution can be brought with ease and the punitive nature of the fine  is not legislation, that is simply served  to tie up a few loose ends. Again like the decades of torture and child abuse that happened in Ireland without complaint from either mothers or fathers hardly anybody cares in a culture of cruelty. People like Sinead o'Connor will  be  persecuted and prosecuted under the new Fianna Fail , Green party legislation.
Recently I blogged a petition about decades of violence, incarceration of my mother, electro-shock, etc of the 30 people with humanity and nature left in them, who signed just a couple of them are Irish from hundred who read these blogs.






After the demise of the Celtic church the Roman Catholic church asked the British to govern Ireland in return for huge property deals. The Roman Catholic church and the British raped, plundered and pillaged Ireland. They have now left a culture of mostly slave minded gombeens who generally have no compassion for  their neighbours and children.






As always it falls to a very few heroic people to sacrifice their lives to challenge these outrageous crimes. Just a few hundred families are now  left to preserve the soul of a once famed compassionate people.

Suzie's Golden Shower Liberated on the Pope's Face


Holy! Holy! Holy! Holy! Holy! Holy! Holy! Holy! Holy! Holy! Holy! Holy! Holy! Holy! Holy!
    The world is holy! The soul is holy! The skin is holy! The nose is holy! The tongue and cock and hand and asshole holy!
     Everything is holy! Everybody's holy! Everywhere is holy! Everyday is in eternity! Everyman's an angel!
    The bum's as holy as the seraphim! The madman is holy as you my soul are holy!

Suzie's Golden Shower on the Pope's Face






A rush, a sudden wheel, and hovering still
The bird descends, and her frail thighs are pressed
By the webbed toes, and that all-powerful bill
Has laid her helpless face upon his breast.
How can those terrified vague fingers push
The feathered glory from her loosening thighs!
All the stretched body's laid on the white rush
And feels the strange heart beating where it lies.

Human Right 15

Link to Human Right 15

It doesn't help the cause of Irish Republicanism, to expend too much energy personally attacking leadership, which will not progress the cause any further. I have already called on McGuinness and Gerry Adams to resign for the sake of unity in the Republican movement.In his last Bodenstown address, Martin McGuinness made much of the notion of "Thinking Republicans". It is as insulting, bizarre and divisive, as his more recent statements, to attempt to divide a movement between "thinking republicans" and active republicans. He can think all he likes but every intelligent dog on the Irish street knows, that he will not think or talk himself out of a monarchy of privilige, into a Republic for the benefit of all ordinary working and dispossessed people.


However it is sobering, to realize that much of the thinking
leadership has been assassinated selectively, particularly the genuine
socialist republican leadership. Bernadette (Devlin) McAliskey was
also shot in her home but fortunately survived. She also survived an
earlier attempt on Bloody Sunday, when several witnesses described
seeing bullets fired by the British Army, hitting the wall behind her,
as she stood on a platform and addressed a crowd assembled at Free
Derry Corner in the city's Bogside district.

Seamus Costello, Miriam Daly, Ronnie Bunting, Noel Little are just
some of the "Thinking Leadership" eliminated by British death squads.
Leadership that articulated the plight of those dispossessed and the
people of no property with values that transcend selfishness, greed
and corruption that is endemic in all of Ireland today. The British
death squads eliminated a leadership that taught solidarity,
co-operation, comradeship, and defence of community and class, basic
values necessary to rise above the anti-human values of today's
politically prostituted, corrupt union enabled Corporate Banking
Ireland.

Cannon Fodder


British Cannonfodder


American Cannonfodder










There is no one more qualified than Reg Keys, whose son Tom was killed in Iraq, to comment on Tony Blair's admission that, if he hadn't used the non-existent weapons of mass destruction to justify a war crime, he would have found another "argument" that is, another lie.

As an Irish person on the receiving end of British injustice in Ireland, executed by their military, I would like to extend my deepest sympathy to Mr. Keys. Your pain is something that people like Blair, Bush or Obama, who have not experienced it, cannot understand. I trust your son rests in peace.

Please understand that anything I publish, is intended to hasten the day, where sons or daughters will no longer be used as cannonfodder. Unfortunately there will be many more mother's and father's sons lost before that happens.

One of my leading inspirational persons in life, is a former British soldier, this is the wikipedia

BBC BRUTISH BULLSCUTTER COPERATION

Don't even give them a chance to launch their Bullscutter !

Oh, no. Brutish Bullscutter Coperation. Don't come fucking near me today. Dear Jaysus, you Kerry fucking recruits and gobshites all over the Irish media are their by-product. There are so many things I could say to express my deep mistrust and yes, anger of these new media Irish opinion makers. Their world service can be a titillating export but their rampant censorship of the restless native's replies stinks to high heaven, of arrogance, cultural imperialism and age old repression.

I don't vote right wing as far as I know, so maybe that also explains my antagonism to them. I don't believe the Brutish Bullscutter Coperation, which henceforth will be simply called the BBC, offer anything approximating legitimate alternatives for this country, indeed any country but thats their business. I disagree with their monarchy, class system of commoners, lords, inherited privilige and intolerance of diversity or alternatives.

Lest you think nationalism is blinding me, do not confuse my rants against Brutish Bullscutter with the many Scottish, English and Welsh friends I have known down through the years, most of whom are the salt of the Earth in my opinion and great people.

It goes against every fibre of my being and tradition to be rude to people but you have got to stand up for your identity these days or become a smiling zombie product of their pundits and seductive manipulating bullscutter.

Brutes are people too but we must take this tour d'arse with all of its insanity, as a relief from the bland sanitized, couldn't give a fuck mercenary BULLSCUTTER ! of our age.
