The following interview with Ian Ó Dálaigh of Ireland was conducted by Zach Gevelinger. Ó Dálaigh is the Galway-area representative for Éirígí. He is also involved with the Galway Palestine Solidarity Campaign and the Galway Housing Action Group. Éirígí is a socialist republican party. In Ireland, “republicanism” historically means a political ideology that seeks a cultural, political and economic divorce from England and the United Kingdom. Irish republicanism was founded on the basis of a secular nonsectarian approach to religion, as well as liberty and equality for the people of no property. Gevelinger: Could you briefly explain the origins of your party, meaning and platform?Ó Dálaigh: Éirígí was founded in April 2006 as a campaigns group by socialist republicans based in Dublin. We then went on to constitute as a political party at our first Ard Fheis [annual party conference] in 2007. The root cause of our formation was the simple fact that Ireland remained partitioned and the working class remained exploited.Éirígí is an Irish Gaelic word, translated as “arise” or “rise up,” in reference to the famous quote from one of James Larkin’s speeches: “The great only appear great because we are on our knees: Let us rise.”As for our platform, we place ourselves firmly in the long socialist republican tradition that exists in Ireland. Our platform is premised on the fact that, as I’ve already said, Ireland is partitioned and its working class is exploited. This has been the case for a long, long time — and it may take a long time to change it. Right now, the need to popularize a genuine socialist republican alternative to capitalism and imperialism is of paramount importance.Gevelinger: How does Éirígí differ from other republican and/or socialist groups?Ó Dálaigh: The decision to form Éirígí was not one that was taken lightly. It was felt that there was space for a new socialist republican organization. The growth of the party since then, from seven Dublin-based members to having bases across Ireland, confirms that this analysis was the correct one. While we are constituted as a political party, we differ from most other parties in that we do not see electoralism as a means towards creating a socialist republic. While we do feel that tactical engagement in elections can be of use in certain circumstances, what we are about is mobilizing people against capitalism and imperialism. We also believe the building of a new progressive social movement to be an essential step on the road to transforming Ireland’s socioeconomic system. Such a movement will need to encompass trade unions, political parties, community groups, campaign groups, residents associations and nonaligned individuals.Gevelinger: What current political work is Éirígí engaged in?Ó Dálaigh: We began 2016 by taking part in the Save Moore Street campaign, which involved the occupation of buildings that were the last headquarters of the rebel leaders during the 1916 Rising. The campaign ended in victory, as a court ruled that the buildings and streets surrounding 16 Moore Street are of huge historical significance and should be protected.Our activists were heavily involved in the anti-water tax campaign, which has recently come to a halt, and ended with success — for now at least, as the issue has been put on the long finger [i.e., postponed] by the free state government.More recently, November saw the launch of our Public Housing for All campaign. This is currently our main campaign, and will likely remain so for the foreseeable future, as the housing crisis across Ireland is deepening. Some of our members were involved in the recent occupation of Apollo House in Dublin, a direct action which brought huge focus on the housing crisis and ensured that 76 people previously sleeping on our streets have been transitioned into stable beds. So you could say that we began 2016 fighting for heritage, and ended it by fighting for our future.Our Ciorcal [branch] in County Wicklow recently rolled out the first of what we hope will be many community programs: providing low-cost fuel to their community through the formation of a local co-op. These are the kinds of actions that we feel simultaneously highlight the failings of capitalism, the importance of people power, and the need for community empowerment in striving towards a better world.Gevelinger: How is the Easter Rising still relevant 100 years on?Ó Dálaigh: Simply put, it is still relevant because its aims and objectives have not yet been achieved. An Ireland that “cherishes all of the children of the nation” remains an aspiration, not a concrete reality. The challenges facing republicans today may be different, but the objective remains the same. When you look at the main driving forces behind the Rising — the militant trade unionism of the Irish Citizen Army, the desire for national liberation of the IRB [Irish Republican Brotherhood] and Irish Volunteers — it is clear that the root causes of conflict in Ireland have still not been fully addressed. We believe, as James Connolly did, that the class question and national question are intrinsically linked and any attempt to separate them will lead us down a blind alley instead of advancing the aims of socialist republicanism. The failings of capitalism in Ireland are there for all to see — the housing crisis, the deep inequality, our reliance on foreign direct investment — are just a few examples. In addition, imperialism is still rife in Ireland — the British occupation of the six counties, U.S. military involvement in Shannon airport, and European Union membership attest to this. So, if we accept the premise that the Easter Rising was born out of a desire to overthrow an imperialist power and establish a republic that would put the needs of the many over the greed of the few, then any observer of modern Ireland will see that the Rising is still very much relevant.Gevelinger: Would you like to add anything else?Ó Dálaigh: I’d like to thank you for giving Éirígí the opportunity to explain its ideas to people in the U.S. Communication and solidarity between peoples involved in struggle is essential in the fight for a better world, and long may it continue.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this
A view from the courtyard of the Julia Morgan-designed Pasadena YWCA building, circa 1930, during a time when the facility offered housing to young women.Finalists’ proposals for the City’s dilapidated YWCA building will have to include an affordable housing element to their proposals.On Monday, City Manager Steve Mermell reported that the Council gave him that direction during a closed session meeting on the YWCA on Thursday.“Last week staff received direction from the City Council regarding the price and terms of payment as to proposals for the redevelopment of the YWCA building and the Civic Center,” Mermell said at Monday’s City Council meeting. “Specifically, the council made it clear that it wishes to see some form of affordable housing as part of any development in the Civic Center and to return with an analysis of the impact that may have on the price.”According to Mermell the project could come back to the City Council in February and then there will be an opportunity for community engagement on the proposals.Mermell said, “Staff is working as directed.”The city is in the middle of an affordable housing crisis.As of last Wednesday, there five proposals were being reviewed for the YWCA property.The proposals included a 125-150 full-service Four Seasons hotel at the YWCA site along with 25 luxury residences at the former Water and Power site by Carpenter and Company of Boston.Continental Assets Management in Arcadia proposed a four-star 167 hotel room, either a five-story 120 room market-rate unit building or a six-story 139 affordable housing unit is proposed at the Water and Power site.A proposal by Edgewood Realty Partners from nearby South Pasadena would see a 164-room boutique hotel operated by Palisociety and a 70,000 square foot, five-story office building is proposed for the Water and Power site.New Orleans-based HRI Properties LLC would create a 179-room hotel, of which 165 rooms would be in a new 83,000-square-foot building adjacent to the YWCA. Their proposal didn’t specify what the Water & Power site would be used for.The Ratkovich Company with the National Community Renaissance in Los Angeles is proposing two alternatives.The first would call for rehabbing the building for office space. The second option calls for the rehabilitation of the building with construction of a new 59,000 square foot office building, or rehabbing the building and building a 142-room hotel.On the PWP property, permanent supportive housing or permanent supportive housing and 15,000 square feet of leasable office space is proposed by Ratkovich.

Facebook Pinterest Muri: Certification means more opportunity EducationECISDLocal News WhatsApp Twitter By Digital AIM Web Support – December 17, 2020 Previous articleOAT122320 Christmas Salad2.jpgNext articleDAILY OIL PRICE: December 17 Digital AIM Web Support TAGS Twitter WhatsApp Pinterest Facebook The chance for teachers to participate in National Board for Professional Teaching Standards certification, COVID-19 testing and two early release days were the topics tackled by Ector County ISD Superintendent Scott Muri during his media call Wednesday. “Today, the Permian Strategic Partnership made a multi-million dollar investment into the teachers of ECISD in partnership with the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards. This partnership will allow right at 300 teachers in ECISD to undergo the process to become a National Board certified teacher,” Muri said. “These funds will allow us to provide coaching and mentoring and all the supports that our teachers need to go through that process. The National Board for Professional Teaching Standards has been around now for many years in the United States. They were developed in the late ‘80s and began certifying teachers in the early ‘90s,” Muri said. He said ECISD has no National Board certified teachers. Muri was certified in the ‘90s. In Texas, there are about 950 National Board certified teachers and about 150,000 nationwide. “It is by far the best professional learning experience that I’ve ever had in my career,” Muri said. “It made me a much better teacher and today a much better leader.” The certification process, he said will allow some 300 teachers to improve their skills and hone the “good work” that they are already doing to do even better work for students. Along with classroom teachers, counselors and media specialists can also go for certification. In the spring, Muri said the district will develop a support system for teachers who want to go through the process and identify the teachers who want to take the challenge. “This will also give us an opportunity to attract people to our area. ECISD is the only district in the state of Texas to receive this grant from the Permian Strategic Partnership and we’re excited about that,” Muri said. “We have a chance to create a really unique model of supporting the National Board process right here in the city of Odessa and in Ector County with our teachers and in partnership with the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards, so we’ll certainly be able to recruit some of the best teachers around the country to our area.” “… Our hope is that we can begin to draw those teachers here to the city of Odessa and we can see them as early as August of 2021,” he added. Because of House Bill 3 passed by the Texas Legislature in 2019, ECISD teachers who become certified will receive additional compensation of between $3,000 to $9,000 “from the state of Texas.” “We’re excited about adding that additional compensation to our teachers that so deserve that additional compensation, especially today with all that they are doing in and amongst the pandemic,” Muri said. He noted that research shows the No. 1 factor that increases student achievement is the teacher. “Today’s investment in the teachers of ECISD will ensure that the students of ECISD win academically; they win socially; and they win emotionally,” Muri said. On COVID testing, ECISD was one of the districts that decided to take advantage of the COVID testing provided by the state. The district has started to test its 4,200 employees. If an adult comes to school feeling well but at some point in the day begins to display some of the symptoms of COVID-19, the rapid tests are available and they would know within 15 minutes if they are negative or positive. “… Then we can take appropriate measures as a school system to ensure the safety of our students and ensure the safety of our staff members,” Muri said. “Already this week we’ve had both positive and negative tests each day. When we return from the holiday break, we will continue to provide that opportunity for not only our staff members but we will then begin offering it to students. So any student prek through 12th grade that begins to display COVID-19 symptoms during the school day, we will be able to provide that test to our students along with parent permission. Moms and dads you have to give permission in order for us to provide that test for your children. It’s a pretty (non-invasive) test. It is a nasal swab, so (it’s) pretty easy to administer, and again, we have those results within 15 minutes. We’ve had great success with it this week and we look forward to offering again to students as well as staff members after the holiday break.” Muri also mentioned that the school board has approved early release days for Feb. 2 and March 2. Teachers will use the rest of those days for professional development.
