People Before Profit statement on last night's riots.
We send our full solidarity to the families and all those affected at Gaelscoil Choláiste Mhuire. And we stand resolutely against those seeking to exploit this tragedy to spread hate.
This evening members of PBP Galway held a couple BDS actions in Galway.
We first attempted to enter Re/Max on Eyre Square in Galway to hand them a letter demanding they cease their selling of property in illegal occupied Palestinian land to Israeli settlers. But unexpectedly they had closed early today. So we stood in front of their location in protest instead. We will be back.
A full room in Áras na nGael for People Before Profit Galway public meeting on Palestine. Palestinian human rights activist & legal researcher Ramez Hayek gave a great talk on the history of Palestine and the occupation from Israel over the last 75 years.
Repost from Adrian Curran on Twitter:
We had a packed People Before Profit Galway meeting last night.
Palestinian human rights activist & legal researcher Ramez Hayek gave an excellent presentation about the historic context of the horrors we're currently witnessing. Israel's ethnic cleansing & apartheid have been ongoing for 75 yrs.
We have a public meeting on tomorrow in Galway, with Palestinian human rights activist and legal researcher Ramez Hayek and Adrian Curran from People Before Profit in Galway
We'll be covering the historic context, the current situation, and what we can do locally as part of the global movement of solidarity for Palestine.

My letter in the Galway City Tribune: Uisce Éireann should deliver safe water, not profits.
The company recorded operating profits of €250 million in 2022, and then consistently fails to invest in adequate wastewater treatment in Galway.
This directly affects the building of homes in the midst of a housing crisis.
Conor Burke and I tried to get down to Galway City Library as soon as we heard far-right agitators were there to spread their hate. But they only stopped in for a photo op and left before we could confront them. Far-right fascists are not welcome in Galway.

Die neue Antritt-Ausgabe ist da. Gerolf ist zurück und wir sprechen mit Jens vom TOUR Magazin über den vermutlich größten Rückruf in der Fahrradgeschichte, die Millionen Rennradkurbeln von #Shimano. Außerdem berichtet Nicole von ihrem #parisbrestparis. Seit heute in eurer Lieblingspodcast-App und natürlich von @detektorfm.

Like Darragh Adelaide says, far right grifters want to direct your anger away from the super rich and their Government pals and onto minorities. Ná lig dóibh.

Ganz vergessen: am 23.09. war Saison Abschluss mit einem 200 Kilometer #brevet beim ARA Rheinland.
Sehr gut angekommen ist unser neuer Startort, die UNI Sportanlagen auf dem Venusberg in #bonn und die neue Strecke. https://www.komoot.de/tour/1301676889?ref=atd
Wir freuen uns schon auf viele schöne Kilometer in 2024!
Last week I, along with Richard Boyd Barrett TD and others, had the pleasure of joining Andrew Mannion for his local election campaign launch as a People Before Profit representative in Ballinasloe.
Andrew is a great example of the young trade union spirit we need today. He was instrumental in organising workers in Ballinasloe Corrib Oil this past year and will no doubt continue leading that struggle for workers in our county council.
Hey folks! We're running our first fundraiser for our local election campaign in 2024.
Let's get eco-socialists elected in City Council to stand up for ordinary working people, stands against landlordism, & properly fights for our climate that tackles our emissions. Let's elect People Before Profit.
Help get Socialists onto the Council!
€5 per person / €20 per table. Raffle and prizes on the night!

Heute vor 132 Jahren startete die Erstausgabe des Radrennens Paris-Brest-Paris über damals unvorstellbare 1196 km. Der französische Profi Charles Terront gewann mit einer Zeit von 71 Stunden, auf Schlaf verzichtete er. Das Rennen löste einen riesigen Fahrrad- und Radsportboom aus.

Noch einmal Drew Buck und PBP: 2011 nahm er auf einem Peugeot aus dem Jahr 1900 mit entsprechender Kleidung teil. Und kam auch noch rechtzeitig ins Ziel.
Hier ein Blog-Post von 2013: https://chasingmailboxes.com/2013/12/30/pbp-memories-drew-buck-and-his-1900-peugeot/
Bei PBP sind bereits mehrfach Teilnehmer:innen auf historischen Rädern gestartet. Der Engländer Drew Buck fuhr 2007 als bretonischer Zwiebelverkäufer (mit künstlichen Zwiebeln) auf einer RetroDirecte mit zwei Gängen. Für den kleinen Gang muss man rückwärts treten: "It's like a Michael Jackson moonwalk, you feel like you're going backwards while you're going forwards".

An American sets a new record for the #PBP. Of course, I can’t help but help but have a slightly cynical smile when I read about the French wondering who this American is and how is he riding so fast? 😜

We were out around Inishannagh Park, Cluainín, Greenview Heights and Cuar Na Lus last night talking with residents. We met a lot of people who are angry and frustrated with the housing and cost of living crisis.
People Before Profit Galway welcomes cancellation of plans for Tynagh gas plant
"Denman Rooke, candidate for Galway City East, said the science behind addressing future climate change shows us that we have to leave a majority of known fossil fuel reserves in the ground."
We were out front of the Mervue shops today with a petition to save our Mervue bus stop.
The BusConnects plan seems to want to remove this stop to make it more profitable for a private operator to take on.
This is outrageous. Our public services should serve the community not private company profit.
The Mervue community is outraged at this decision and we will keep on raising this to the planners and the council until it's changed.

The Paris-Brest-Paris ride is one I've thought about for years. I'm so out of riding shape and getting older every year that I doubt I will ever get a chance but, maybe, someday, who knows.
If you've never heard of it, see the link below. I think it's one of the most amazing events I've ever heard of.

On par for shipping from Asia to the US.
I think I'll go ahead and order one, and try to use my current one. I hope some tinning compound will make it work better. It was a real pain. Also, my solder is thick enough to flow into large components like the DC barrel jack easily, but way too globby for things like normal resistors and caps
I'll be joining other anti-war & pro-neutrality activists on Friday to protest the farce that is the govt's forum on security. This is a pro-NATO, pro-military stacked meeting with the sole purpose of dictating to the public that our long-standing neutrality must be removed.
Galway Bay fm had me on briefly to chat about cycling and active travel safety concerns around the new Dublin Road BusConnects plans.
People Before Profit Galway welcomes a further application to the Dublin Road BusConnects, with the caveat that pedestrians, wheelchair users, and cyclists are provided for first and foremost.
Today I joined protestors at UHG expressing their outrage over the overcrowding in our hospitals. Let's be clear, this is because of govt policy of underfunding and understaffing our public hospital system to make it attractive for the private system to come in to "save" it.
As someone who spent a good portion of their 20s in the States avoiding healthcare due to the fear of immense debt, trust me when I say a private healthcare system is a failed healthcare system.
#introduction Hello! I am a #sysadmin for #linux systems and interested in #privacy #federation and #horizontalism (in an organizational/political sense). With a sprinkle of #psychology and #philosophy thrown in.
My actual system is base OSRIC with some "secret sauce" OSR bits thrown in. Rounding out with a sprinkle of #Dragonsfoot Footprints articles and my own houserules wiki.
And boy, it's slow. Even dear pinafore.social struggles a little. :ac_laughter:

@adamd was just checking on a nightly build of plasma, the answer is still kinda none based on whats offered by the distro. hexchat works on landscape but no keyboard. srain does nothing. Konversation kinda works OK if you toggle between portrait to type and landscape to read.
hex is great on teh #pbp manjaro though so maybe one day
We know you have been waiting patiently, but the wait is finally over.
Manjaro ARM 21.04 has just been released, with a slew of new images for your devices!
Any #pbp users here running plain Arch (not Manjaro) that has working hardware accelerated video decoding/playing?
