Anyone passing Roxboro in the last 8 weeks will have seen the workers from Curran Aluiminium standing outside on the Picket Line in the worst of weather conditions. Despite the long duration of this dispute, it has received little enough media coverage (a search on google news reveals only 4 stories in the last month). Thus it is good to see new station Dublin Community Television coming to Limerick and giving a fair platform to the striking workers in the clip above.
Another person who believed in a fair deal for workers was Peadar O Donnell. A new documentary on tg4 tonight explores his fight for socialist principles and civil rights in Ireland. The programme airs at 9.30 and is produced by Ciara Nic Chormaic ( a cheebah DJ in the past).
