Pól Ó Lorcáin
Paul Larkin

Chroniclers are privileged to enter where they list, to come and go through keyholes, to ride upon the wind, to overcome in their soarings up and down, all obstacles of distance, time and place.
Charles Dickens - Barnaby Rudge, Chapter The Ninth


After the horrendous attack, not just on our comrades in the Labour Youth movement in Oslo, but also on the very notion of democracy itself - the underlying philosophy of fascism being anti democratic - we should only have one response - ¡No pasarán!.

The leadership of the Norwegian Labour Party's youth wing (a much more radical group than our home grown variety) has stated that it will return to the island on which a fascist gunman slaughtered so many of their comrades as soon as possible. This is exactly the correct response to fascist and Nazi ideology.

There two other lessons to be learned from the Oslo attack:

While the world (led by Israel) obsesses about Muslims, the far right (the true enemy of all Jews) is once again growing all over Europe.
In my book, A Very British Jihad, I showed how the military intelligence services of the West (and its allies) have always been underpinned by anti democratic and fascist principles. In England, Greece, Italy, Argentina, Chile.

Right now in Ireland, there are agent provocateurs whose sole function is to undermine Irish republican/socialist principles, sow confusion and dissent and exact revenge for having effectively lost the war here. The function of these agents, in essence, is to assert a paranoid security agenda and to stop the spread of real democracy - the sharing of wealth. It is extremely important to the securocrats in England that no truly radical movement ever takes power in Ireland.

This is the real function of groups like the Force Research Unit and MI5 and they will stop at nothing (even the wholesale recruitment of sectarian loyalist killers, as we have seen) to pursue their aims.

Very soon I hope to start on a new book, which looks at these issues.

The fight for democracy and social justice is not going on in some far off land. It is here - in any place where citizens gather to debate and help each other - to speak their own language, create communities, share knowledge and the fruits of their labours.

Don't mourn - organise!

We are many. They are few.

I return optimist from Ireland albeit under the stark reality that, as you state, some are trying to upset real progress.
However, they will not succeed and I hear with all my heart your words knowing that such debate, organization and sharing of knowledge will one day create solid, just communities where we may live together, far from fear and greed.
Much love from France
