An elderly artist and anti-war activist, who was released early from prison yesterday, after serving part of a second prison sentence over her opposition to the US military use of Shannon Airport, has described conditions inside Limerick Prison as “inhumane”.
On Monday 14 July a group of women went out to our local high street in Kentish Town, NW London, during a sunny and windy lunch hour to gather signatures for the Living Wage for Mothers and other Carers Petition. We were from the All African Women’s Group, Global Women’s Strike and Single Mothers’ Self-Defence.
Excellent article on Carolyn Hill’s struggle with the Philadelphia Department of Human Services (DHS) to adopt her nieces as well as on DHS biases, privatization and poverty. It quotes Selma James, coordinator of the Global Women’s Strike and author of Sex, Race and Class – The Perspective of Winning and Dorothy Roberts, Univ of Pennsylvania law professor and author of Shattered Bonds – The Color of Child Welfare.
Shamefully Margaretta has been locked up again - for protesting war crimes and Ireland's collusion in them. In a visit with John Lannon and Edward Horgan today, Margaretta expressed her horror at what is being done to the people of Gaza.
