This is an Interview with 82 yr young, Margaretta D`Arcy the well known Irish peace activist. On asking her about the 1916 Independence proclamation she said;

You want me to talk about 1916 and since then It`s been downhill all the way

In the podcast we discuss the early negotiations of of the Anglo Irish Treaty which was ratified in 1922. She mentions that the UK position on hanging on to some of Ireland’s land mass was prevalent in the countries seeking Independence throughout the crumbling Empire (Indian Independence movements worked closely with the Irish Independence movement around this time).

She went on to say that Northern Ireland is a member of NATO (unlike the republic of Ireland) and that NATO is a part of the military industrial complex.

Turning to the situation in Ireland she mentions that Ireland has an arms industry worth some 23 billion euros and that we sell arms and military technology to Saudi Arabia, Israel, UK, Russia, France, Pakistan, Afghanistan and the USA. She then ties in the EU and NATO agreements that show Irish neutrality is at risk. She also connects the refugee crisis to NATO operations and poverty around the world.

Under the Lisbon treaty, Ireland is used for testing weapons.

and went on to say that

we need to end the Lisbon Treaty.

Oddly enough she pointed out that the arms coming through Shannon Airport have been manufactured using Irish Technology.

US Apache helicopters, used in Isreal to kill Palestinians – Their key components are made in Ireland by a US corporation based in Cork

The universities of Cork, Limerick and Trinity College Dublin are all linked to military research and Irish academics have collaborated with European Union projects with Israel, she said and that 1916 was supposed to be an anti imperialist war?

What is shocking in this country is that very little information is getting out and it is one of the counties dirty little secrets

she said.

In Part 1 of the show we discuss the news around Europe and discuss the climate problems and effects facing the world today with Kevin Hester.

In the secod part of the show we have Chris Busby discussing the contamination of Hiroshima and Nagasaki and the flawed radiation health measurement called “Dose” and a new study called MELODI in Europe that hopes to finally study the effects of radioactive particulates in the environment and how specific isotopes such as Uranium are actually effecting all our health. We also discuss other related issues such as the Breast cancer study around nuclear plants and some good news on the UK Nuclear Test Veterans case that Chris is involved with.

“Justice and Law for Activists, A Global Perspective” – on this weeks European News Weekly show – 12th July 2015

Justice and Law for Activists, A Global Perspective

This weeks European News Weekly is brought to you by Shaun McGee, Jimmy Hagan and Kevin Hester – 12th July 2015 – Justice and Law for activists!

scales-of-justice

This weeks 3 podcasts are full of interviews with activists recounting their recent experiences with the justice system. We have Emma and Amanda Kelly whose brother, John Kelly, died under suspicious circumstances in Dublin Ireland and their fight to bring closure to their brothers harrowing case. A most moving testimony in the third part of the show.

We also interview Chris Busby who (as is well documented) has been targeted by the establishment and just recently has been “punished” with punitive fines for taking the Ministry of Defence in the UK to court.

We also discuss with Chris, the methods employed to harass activists in the UK and the lengths that the UK is going to hide crucial evidence against the ICRP Dose model employed by the nuclear industry.

The Extinction report is delivered once again by Kevin Hester covering climate change anomalies being reported from around the world.

Then we have Jack Cohen Joppa on the show who publishes a newspaper for activist prisoners (The Nuclear Resister). He has some stunning tales of incarceration and we ask the question, Does the corporations and government agencies now employ different tactics against activists than imprisoning them? He gives us some good news regarding Mordechi Vannunu the Isreali nuclear bomb whistleblower. Altogether a great interview!

And lastly, we talk to Stephen Manning about mail tampering and other related issues in Ireland.

NOTE-

Exclusive interview with Emma and Amanda Kelly, sisters of the murdered young man, John Kelly discussing their hope of a resolution to the questions that have arisen from their investigation of their brothers death.

They explain the pain and anguish of family and friends to the tragedy and lack of support from media and authorities. This is an emotional story of a fight against injustice and a cry for transparency.

Amanda and Emma also call on other victims to step forward and take a stand against injustice in Ireland. A stunning and insightful interview!

In the last 20 minutes of this hour we talk to Stephen Manning from Integrity Ireland about the 320 cases that are awaiting judicial review or have recieved dissapointing conclusions and he updates us on a case of mail tampering in Ireland.
