Unseemly

Peter Nolan at the 'Freedom Institute' writes today in the course of a piece:

"The regulars at the Institute for Autonomy, where most of the Indymedia UK inner circle hang out, are almost certainly unharmed, as they were engaging in recreational public disorder hundreds of miles away in Scotland and successfully diverting police resources from the capital. Well done compadres!"

A lot of commentary is devoted over at the FI (as well as at their Indymedia Watch Ireland offshoot) about how dreadful Indymedia posters are, some of it unfortunately true.

But our US Republican Party-influenced friends at the Freedom Institute could do with taking a long, hard look in the mirror before casting stones at others.

About me

  • An early-thirties male Irish technologist living and working in Dublin, I'm a former (recovering) member of both Fianna Fáil and the Roman Catholic Church.

    I'm not a member of any political party these days, but my opinions can be broadly categorised as 'lefty' and republican. I am also a former member of the Irish Defence Forces.

    Please feel free to check out the FI Fie Foe Fum group blog, where I was once a regular contributor, and the Cedar Lounge Revolution, where I can usually be found in the comments.
