By : London - Wednesday June 11, 2008
London - Irish Republican party Sinn Fein urged voters on Wednesday to vote against the European Union’s controversial treaty, in a crunch referendum being watched anxiously by Ireland’s EU partners.

Irish "No" camp: EU treaty bad for democracy
By : DUBLIN - Wednesday June 11, 2008
Critics of the European Union reform treaty in Ireland, which will vote on the document on June 12, are a diverse group united by the idea it would undermine democracy. Opponents include pacifists, anti-abortionists, nationalists and a handful of business people who share the view that Ireland and its people will be left with a weaker voice. A new opinion poll on Friday indicated their campaign may succeed. Rejection from Ireland, the only EU country to hold a referendum on the pact, (...)

By : STEPHEN COLLINS - Friday June 6, 2008
by STEPHEN COLLINS, Political Editor THE LISBON Treaty could face a shock rejection with the No side now in the lead, according to the findings of the latest Irish Times /TNS mrbi poll. It will take an unprecedented swing in the last week of the campaign for the treaty to be carried.

On 13 December 2007, the heads of EU States and governments signed the "Lisbon Treaty" which they expect to take effect on 1 January 2009. This Treaty will govern the future workings of the European Union and, like the European Constitution refused by French and Dutch voters in 2005, it will set the course of a neo-liberal, free-market Europe in exactly the same way. The social needs of European citizens are not taken into account. Instead of respecting the wishes of Europeans for a (...)

10 reasons why the Lisbon Treaty is a bad deal for Ireland
By : Sinn Féin - Wednesday February 13, 2008
1. It puts at risk our automatic right to a referendum on future changes to existing treaties. 2. It gives the EU too much power and reduces our ability to stop decisions that are not in Ireland’s interests. 3. It gives 105 additional powers to the EU on issues such as international relations, security, trade and economic policy – and in more than 60 of these areas we will lose our right to stop laws not in our national interest. 4. It creates an EU Foreign (...)

Sinn Féin launches Lisbon Treaty alternative
By : Sinn Féin - Wednesday February 13, 2008
LAUNCHING Sinn Féin’s alternative guide to the Lisbon Treaty, Dublin MEP Mary Lou McDonald said this week that the referendum campaign will be very different to previous EU referenda. “People know that Ireland’s place in the EU is secure and that it is possible to support the EU and be against the Lisbon Treaty,” she said. “People will be deciding how to vote on the basis of how this treaty will impact on Ireland. This will inform the debate for the coming (...)

By Vincent Browne Last Wednesday afternoon, I visited the offices of the European Commission in Molesworth Street, Dublin. I wanted a copy of the Lisbon Reform Treaty, on which we will vote in a few months. One of the three gentlemen at reception gave me a photocopy of the document, the only form in which this treaty is available. I noted that on page 10 (I think it was on page 10, for even the page numbers are confusing) Article 1 stated: ‘‘The Treaty on the European Union (...)

Why Ireland Must Reject the Lisbon Treaty
By : Declan Ganley - Saturday February 9, 2008
10 comments
Declan Ganley writes in The Irish Daily Mail’s Saturday Essay on why Ireland must reject The Lisbon Treaty. On this past Thursday morning at 11 am Irish time, a group of 27 European political leaders signed their names to the Treaty of Lisbon. As they wielded their pens, further empowering an unaccountable Brussels elite, one has to wonder if any of them felt the weight of betrayal of the citizens they were supposed to be representing. When was it that the 27 lost their belief in (...)

66% undecided on Lisbon Treaty
By : Ireland - Saturday February 9, 2008
An opinion poll published today indicates that nearly two thirds of voters have yet to decide how to vote in the planned referendum on the Lisbon Treaty. Only 12% of people believe they have a satisfactory knowledge of what is in the treaty. However, the poll which appears in today’s Irish Times suggests that of those voters who have made up their minds, supporters of the agreement are leading the way. Ireland is the only EU country holding a referendum on the Lisbon Treaty, and (...)

Neo-Nazis and far-right protesters in Ukraine 3 live-stream

The far-right in Ukraine are acting as the vanguard of a protest movement that is being reported as pro-democracy. The situation on the ground is not as simple as pro-EU and trade versus pro-Putin and Russian hegemony in the region. When US Senator John McCain dined with Ukraine’s opposition leaders in December, he shared a table and later a stage with the leader of the extreme far-right Svoboda party Oleh Tyahnybok. This is Oleh Tyahnybok, he has claimed a "Moscow-Jewish mafia" (...)

I’VE DECIDED TO "WASTE" MY VOTE
Sunday 28 October
by : David R. Hoffman, Legal Editor of Pravda.Ru
In a 2004 episode of Comedy Central’s animated series South Park, an election was held to determine whether the new mascot for the town’s elementary school would be a “giant douche” or a “turd sandwich.” Confronted with these two equally unpalatable choices, one child, Stan Marsh, refused to vote at all, which resulted in his ostracization and subsequent banishment from the town. Although this satirical vulgarity was intended as a commentary on the two (...)

HIGHER EDUCATION IN AMERICA: DREAM OR NIGHTMARE? PART IV

by : David R. Hoffman, Legal Editor of Pravda.Ru
PART I PART II PART III If there is one major inconsistency in life, it is that young people who know little more than family, friends and school are suddenly, at the age of eighteen, supposed to decide what they want to do for the rest of their lives. Unfortunately, because of their limited life experiences, the illusions they have about certain occupations do not always comport to the realities. I discovered this the first time I went to college. About a year into my studies, I (...)

Even as colleges and universities raise their tuition costs, they are relying more and more on adjunct instructors. Adjuncts are (...)

If there is one universal question that haunts all human beings at some point in their lives, it is, “Why do we die?” Death, after all, is the great illogic. It ultimately claims all, the rich and the poor, the mighty and the small, the good and the evil. Death also has the capability to make most human pursuits—such as the quest for wealth, fame and power—vacuous and fleeting. Given this reality, I have often wondered why so many people are still willing to (...)

How much corruption can a “democracy” endure before it ceases to be a democracy? If five venal, mendacious, duplicitous, amoral, biased and (dare I say it) satanic Supreme Court “justices”—John Roberts, Samuel Alito, Antonin Scalia, Clarence Thomas and Anthony Kennedy—have their way, America will soon find out. In several previous articles for Pravda.Ru, I have consistently warned how the Supreme Court’s 2010 Citizens United decision is one of the (...)

At first glance, it is almost unfathomable that anyone with a modicum of intelligence would have voted to retain Scott Walker as Wisconsin’s governor.

A question I’ve frequently been asked since I began writing for Pravda.Ru in 2003 is, “Why did you become disillusioned with the practice of law?” This question is understandable, particularly since, in most people’s minds, being an attorney is synonymous with wealth and political power. I’ve always been reluctant to answer this question for fear it will discourage conscientious and ethical people from pursuing careers in the legal profession—a (...)
