Just curious if there was any news or opinions about the World Bank meets in Malahide in Dublin, 12/13 November yet?

I've no idea but i think if people do absolutely zero in an effort to avoid summit hopping stereotypes its a bit of an own goal; do summat, its a great platform for publicity smile

Nah, they've all moved to cork or brighton. smile

There should be some NGO march in the city centre that I'm sure there'll be some presence on. Nothing major afaik.

Was anyone on her at this? From looking at the indymedia coverage it looks like it's not even worth commenting on.

Jack White, quote function isn't working for me. When I said "From looking at the indymedia coverage it looks like it's not even worth commenting on."
I didn't mean it in the typical cynical bitchy libcom type way. I actually meant it in as non chalant neutral as possible sort of way. More of a shrug of the shoulders expressionless sort of thing. Honestly. It just looks like it was a complete non event.

Everything doesn't have to be a riot or big to be worthwhile you know.

For a Monday lunchtime protest it seems to have been quite good, 60 odd people and a chance to push opposition to capitalism to someone other than the online group of people who all agree with you anyway. Being stupid about it is only going to alienate you from people you might want to work with in the future.

the rumours are true. they would have stormed the hotel armed only with peer reviewed science and the overpowering stench of handmade soap products. but, alas, it was not to be.

Yeah I was imagining some sort of banksy image with instead of flowers - peer reviewed science and handmade soap. (is that nathan barley enough?) grin
Look, 60 ppl is a good turn out but I reserve my right to be indifferent. tongue I probably would have gone too, but it was monday at 12 ffs and I had an exam as well. I look at the report and my initial resonsense is nothing. It's "and?", it says nothing. This is not an attempt to be blasé and cool or that it wasn't "worthwhile", it's just ( ). It's how I felt upon seeing the report, I wouldn't even say it's informed by my political beliefs.
