SPANISH police fired rubber bullets and swung truncheons to disperse anti-crisis protesters in a Barcelona square today after cleaning crews cleared their tent camp.

Catalan police in anti-riot gear moved in after about 50 protesters sat down on the street to block cleaning trucks leaving Plaza de Cataluna square to remove remnants of the encampment.

Police, some with plastic shields, were shown on television dragging protesters along the street and swiping with truncheons at activists, who had been chanting: "They shall not pass."

An AFP reporter at the scene saw rubber bullets fired.

The protest blockade broke up within minutes and cleaning crews carried on the work under police surveillance.

Ten cleaning lorries parked in the square as city workers dismantled the last tents.

About 100 protesters had regrouped in the centre of the square.

Egypt: Hossam el-Hamalawy & Reem Maged called before military judges Tuesday 31 May

Mena solidarity has just issued this statement. * To immediately add your name please email: menasolidarity@gmail.com

We condemn the decision to refer journalists Hossam el-Hamalawy and Reem Maged for questioning by military judges on Tuesday 31 May in relation to their discussion of violations of human rights by the Egyptian military police and the ruling Supreme Military Council on Reem’s political talk show which aired on ONTV on 26 May 2011.
We will not stand by and see courageous journalists silenced, and we stand in solidarity with all Egyptians who are fighting to defend their rights to protest, strike and express themselves freely. These are precious gains of the revolution of 25 January, during which nearly 1000 Egyptians sacrificed their lives.

Saturday 4th June 3pm. ‘The Man with No Secrets’ reading with music.
Studio Theatre in Town Hall Theatre, Galway.

Felicity Heathcote’s short allegorical play captures the emotions, voices and inhumanity surrounding injustice and abuse by the State.
The play is based on the experience of Mordechai Vanunu, a humanitarian to opponents of nuclear weaponry worldwide, but a traitor in the eyes of his homeland state of Israel.

The programme also includes short videos, on Mordechai Vanunu and on Bradley Manning, the young US soldier incarcerated in a military jail accused of leaking to
Wikileaks the video ‘Collateral Damage.’

Man’s inhumanity to Man when truth terrifies the State.

Shannonwatch Vigil Sunday 12 June
14:00 - 15:00 Shannon - in front of airport entrance

In the last week there have been new wikileaks revelations about how worried Irish government ministers were about renditions through Shannon. Their concerns were not about the cruel and inhuman treatment of prisoners illegally captured. Nor did they seem to care about breaches of international - and national - law. No, they were worried about the damage that the truth would cause to their political careers.
Their concern for international law should have gone even further than the rendition flights we all know went through Shannon. It should have included laws covering war crimes committed by occupying U.S. forces in Iraq and Afghanistan - the same forces that were passing through Shannon. It should also have concerned laws of neutrality that were being broken at Shannon every day of the week.
 
The current Fine Gael/Labour government needs to be reminded that they should immediately end these breaches of international law. Shannon has played its part in too much suffering and death already.
