This documentary is getting released in cinemas across the country from this weekend and is well worth a watch. Its an eye-opener and shows how the Government has sold off our resources. It will make you angry to watch and its really important that it gets to as many viewers as possible.
See here for a full list of Atlantic screenings
the attempts to privarise our water supply by the blushirts is just another chapter to this nations failure to protect it’s resources
Scary and depressing. I saw a tweet yesterday – somebody posted a picture of a book about the social and political impact of the potato along with a comment about how academics can write about anything. Sometimes people have a hard time seeing the things that are really important. The collapse of cod stocks crashed economies and changed history. The oceans are warming and the corals are bleaching and supertrawlers are turning swathes of ocean into deserts. If you think this won’t affect you, you’re a fool. if you don’t care you’re an even bigger fool, just not a lonely one.
No people, don’t worry about this, have a read about drugs girl, Dublin gangster nicknames and Conor McFighterman …..these are the important issues….
edgy, and yet so wise…
Thank you….quick everyone look!!!!! …………. Conor McFighterman is going to fight again …
Beautifully shot. Well edited. Will see it but seems a little dubious like that one sided tissue of lies “The Pipe”.
Where are those oil wells that our Government “gave away”?
Why did it take three decades to get a relatively small gas field that will barely supply Ireland up and running?
Why are all those bad oil/gas companies handing back their “giveaway” licences?
Just because you’re against “the man” doesn’t mean you aren’t a massive troll. I say this as someone who votes Green and takes a serious interest in the environment. I await the shrill protests of those who just filled up at the local Shell, are sitting in a gas heated home and using a computer using Coal powered electricity.
The Lenehans seem to figure in the give aways past and present and “honest”
Jack gave away Kinsale Gas too……what was it 500 Dollars.
