RISE OF THE RIGHT:

THE STRUGGLE AGAINST RACISM AND FASCISM IN THE 21ST CENTURY

Workers in Ireland are faced with a number of important struggles in 2019. Not least among these, the resurgence of far right politics, racism and fascism in Irish society is cause for significant alarm. What shape have these reactionary forces taken in today's world, and what can we do to combat them?

Joining us for a discussion on anti-racism, anti-fascism, and the challenges and opportunities facing migrants in political organising in Ireland today are the following speakers:

BULELANI MFACO

Direct Provision activist

RAFAELA FERRACUTI

Brazillian Left Front

MANOJ MANNATH

Kranth

Chaired by Spark Podcast

In addition to their stellar start to the season, Bohemian F.C. are renowned for their work off the pitch in battling racism and bigotry of all forms, as well as facilitating people housed in Direct Provision to attend their football games. Therefore, it is fitting that we ask you to join us in the Members’ Bar in Dalymount Park, the home of Bohs, from 7p.m. on Tuesday 7th May 2019 for what is sure to be a lively and informative event.

THE WORLD IS IN A STATE OF CHASSIS. WHY?

TIME: 7PM FREE

“The world is in a state of chassis”
This famous statement is from Seán O’Casey’s play “Juno and the Paycock.” But what does it mean?

The character (Joxer Daly) meant to say that it is in a state of chaos; and this is certainly true. The environment is in crisis, with global warming, pollution of the world’s oceans, and the increasing loss of bio-diversity. Wars, both large and small, rage around the world. Hundreds of thousands of people have become refugees, fleeing hunger, war, and genocide, many of them dying at sea in their effort to find refuge and security. Billions of people live in dire poverty and experience super-exploitation by global corporations.

What has brought us to this point in the history of our planet, and to this deepening crisis? What are the forces propelling us towards the environmental abyss? How do we change direction and build a more democratic and socially just society, both at home and internationally? How do we end the super-exploitation of working people?

This is the real challenge that we all need to face, so as to work towards a solution. With this in mind, James Connolly Festival 2019 is happy to host three excellent speakers in Hugo Rene Ramos Milanes, Cuban ambassador to Ireland, Dr Moataz Khalifa of the Sudanese Communist Party and Eugene McCartan, General Secretary of the Communist Party of Ireland.



Speakers

Hugo Rene Ramos Milanes (Cuban Ambassador to Ireland)
Dr Moataz Khalifa (Communist Party of Sudan)
Eugene McCartan (Communist Party of Ireland)

Chair: Laura Duggan (Communist Party of Ireland)

“The world is in a state of chassis”

Ráiteas cáiliúil é seo ó dhráma Sheáin Uí Chathasaigh, Juno and the Paycock. Ach céard is ciall leis?

Bhí an domhan ina chíorthuathail, dar le Joxer Daly sa dráma úd agus is cinnte gur fíor sin sa lá inniu. Tá géarchéim ann maidir leis an aeráid, ag cur san áireamh téamh domhanda, truailliú aigéin an domhain, agus cailliúint na bithéagsúlachta a bheith ag dul i méid. Tá cogaí móra agus beaga á bhfeardh ar fud na cruinne. Tá na céadta míle daoine ina ndídeanaithe, ag teitheadh ón ocras, ó chogaíocht agus ó chinedhíothú, an-chuid acu ag fáil bháis ar muir agus iad ag iarraidh dídean agus slándáil a bhaint amach. Tá billiúin daoine ag maireachtáil faoi dhúbhochtaineacht agus faoi shárfhulaingt ó chorparáidí domhanda..

Céard is cúis leis an staid seo i stair ár bplainéid, agus leis an ngéarchéim atá ag dul in olcas? Céard iad na fórsaí atá ár dtiomáint i dtreo dhuibheagán an chomhshaoil? Cén chaoi ar féidir linn athrú treo a ghlacadh agus sochaí níos daonlathaí ina mbeidh ceartas sóisialta, sa bhaile agus i gcéin? Cén chaoi ar féidir linn críoch a chur le sár-dhúshaothrú oibrithe?

Seo an fíordhúshlán ar gá dúinn aghaidh a thabhairt air le réiteach a bhaint amach. Agus é sin in intinn againn beidh áthas ar Fhéile Shéamais Uí Chonghaile 2019 triúr cainteoir den scoth a chur i láthair -- Hugo Rene Ramos Milanes, Ambasadóir Chúba in Éirinn, Dr Moataz Khalifa, Páirtí Cumannach na Súdáine, agus Eugene McCartan, Ard-Rúnaí Pháirtí Cumannach na hÉireann.
