13) Looking at the landscape of #SocialProblems in #Ireland, lack of affordable housing may be one of the triggering items for the #DublinRiots.

Let me be clear, not everyone struggling with the #IrishHousingCrisis riots, but it is likely one of the fault lines used by #FarRight agitators to trigger violence especially when tied to #migration pressures

12) There is no unitary explanation for last week’s #DublinRiots. Those who participated in violence had a reasons peculiar to their own experience. Much as we may wish for singular explanations, solutions to the street rage will likely be manifold, if there is enough courage to look at the event without bias and simplistic prejudice.

Let’s stipulate that the rioters did not participate motivated out of satisfaction with their current life situation.

Different conversations being had, or attempted, at the same time in this Inside Politics podcast.

I think Una Mullally is dead right, the important conversation we need to have is less about how to “solve” the immigration “problem” and more importantly asking and looking at actually why people are so angry and upset and how and by whom it is being directed and used to further these disgusting political goals.

I've been staying around Dublin 1 near where the riots happened recently.

Walking around the streets, you can feel the tension and see the lack of investment in the community and public space.

Hearing Irish politicians refuse to acknowledge the systemic failures, and instead dismiss working people as "scumbags" and "thugs", I wanted to write and share some thoughts:

#IrelandForAll #Ireland #Irish #farright #irelandriots #IrishMastodon #IrelandIsNotFull #Dublin #DublinRiots #inequality

Solidarity with all people here intimated and scared by the recent riots. Ireland is not full; the Irish Government is full of incompetent eijits who fail to provide good quality housing, healthcare, transport, and education for everyone.

The tiny far-right can only manipulate 'left behind' working class people into xenophobia and riots because the Irish Government has failed to provide opportunity and stability in underinvested communities.

If someone has a good quality of life and are happy, they can't be convinced to become angry and anti-immigrant.

If they are already justifiably angry because Government has failed to provide enough quality public services in a cost of living crisis, and because many in society look down on them because of their accent or working class background, then it is easy for the lying far-right to redirect their valid anger from the people who actually have power and control all these things (politicians and the wealthy) to the vulnerable and less powerful who are also harmed by lack of access to basic essentials (such as immigrants and other minorities).

@historyofpunkrock Here's an interview I did with Shane MacGowan in 1994 for the *Irish Post*.

I first met Shane at a *wild* Cramps gig in London in 1980 (Bryan Gregory on guitar), way before he started the Pogues. He really was an incredibly intelligent and gifted person, very well read, quite sensitive and not at all like the image the music business machinery forced upon him.

And over the years he helped and inspired me in many, many ways.

I am sad at his passing but glad that he is at his rest now. Ar dheis Dé go raibh a anam.

#France said that the European Union should consider imposing sanctions on Israeli settlers who attacked Palestinians in the West Bank. One of the options raised in the past in consultations between EU member states in Brussels are to declare a black list of extremist settlers who will be denied entry to Europe.

[...] U.N. figures show that daily settler attacks have more than doubled since Hamas' surprise attack on Israel on Oct. 7 and the ensuing assault on the Palestinian enclave of Gaza. More than 200 Palestinians have been killed in the violence this year, including in attacks by settlers.

This is the first time that #France is raising the possibility of imposing sanctions against violent settlers. Previously it was countries like #Ireland, #Luxembourg and #Spain who expressed their concern.
