Israeli attacks on #AlAqsaMosque & the civilians of #Gaza are the actions of a rogue, pariah state The Israeli Ambassador to Ireland should be expelled without hesitation Irish Govt must stand in solidarity with Palestine #FreePalestine #SavePalestine

Happening too often; question must now be asked: is Stormont’s environmental & built heritage watchdogs strong enough? We need urgent review of NIEA & HED to see if they’re fit for purpose & sufficiently supported to do their invaluable work We also need independent EPA now!!
Nothing to see here, just an ancient burial tomb yards from a huge development. 'Construction had already begun before archaeologists arrived'. What action did @CommunitiesNI take? What planning conditions were breached? @Neolithic_Eire #handsoffourheritage #saveknockiveagh

Tories will do anything to divert attention from looming winter of discontent; food, fuel, energy & worker shortages reveal catastrophe that is Brexit Britain Triggering A16 is for the grassroots and a bone to the desperate DUP; it will achieve nothing and will be short lived
NEW: The EU is likely to challenge on legal grounds any move by the UK to trigger Article 16 of the Northern Ireland Protocol, @rtenews understands.

Have asked @nmdcouncil to invest in modern visitor gateway to #Mournes in Donard Park #Newcastle Currently there is nothing - no signage, no facilities, no advice for stepping into Ireland’s most beautiful natural landscape Looking forward to seeing what can be done

1.3m foreign nationals left Britain & north of Ireland in 2020 alone - biggest population drop since WW2 Calamitous Brexit in tandem with cruel new immigration system has exacerbated the impact of Covid19 on logistics & haulage
BREAKING: BP says it has temporarily closed some UK sites due to supply issues with unleaded and diesel fuel resulting from a national shortage of HGV and tanker drivers. Get the latest updates: trib.al/C3bmZiX

The partition of our country is having a continued negative effect on everyday life & business The issue now needs to be addressed
The Protocol is clearly having a continued negative effect on everyday life & business in Northern Ireland. The outstanding issues now need to be dealt with urgently. I and my team are in contact with the EU daily, but we need a full response to our July Command Paper soon.

Many economies grappling with global supply chain disruption as a result of Covid19; these problems further exacerbated by Brexit Thankfully for us the Protocol has provided much needed protection for local businesses & consumers here in the north of Ireland

600,000 civilians - mostly women & children; were killed by Bomber Command led by war criminal “Sir” Arthur Harris Jim Allister thinks he’s a war hero; deserving of every post-conflict accolade & privilege Yet at home Jim wants to curtail the rights of ex-combatants for life 🤷🏻

📍Burren📍 Burren NEEDS a safe walking path to the Club & to the new community hub I met with senior Road Service officials on the Corrogs Road to discuss this. I believe this is the best location for a footpath that will link the school and village to the community hub

.@DeclanKearneySF participated in an event today setting out the Republican perspective on partition. The partition of Ireland was a catastrophe for the people of this island. It is time to look beyond the division of partition and to a new, inclusive and united Ireland.

There is a very senior British Royal that continues to snub an invitation to visit the USA Perhaps Jeffrey et al might harangue him now too given the recent hysteria

No doubt that British Govt’s calamitous handling of Brexit - especially decision to leave EU Single Market - has deterred migrants 1.3million people born abroad left Britain & north of Ireland in 2020 - largest fall in population since WW2
North’s pork industry labour shortage is direct result of Brexit – @DeclanKearneySF sinnfein.ie/contents/61796

Theres a military-industrial complex to feed; so priority goes to nukes, not nurses A new Cold War with China, like all imperialist misadventures, is based on lies, greed, and a heavy dose of racism Progressive-minded people must oppose such aggression bbc.co.uk/news/world-5856483…
