Minors arrested following a peaceful protest in Jobstown, near Dublin, against the then deputy prime minister, Labour's Joan Burton, in November 2014, are due in court on 19 September.

The young protesters were part of a large demo which delayed Burton's car journey but are now facing ludicrous charges of "false imprisonment".

While the state pursues its political vendetta against a working class revolt, government ministers won't pursue Apple for tax dodging.

Socialist Alternative (CWI Québec) spoke with Jacques Fontaine, one of the striking workers at the Old Port, Montréal. He explained that 280 workers at the Old Port of Montréal have been on strike since 27 May demanding a $15 an hour minimum wage.

This is one of the first strikes in Canada for a $15 an hour minimum wage, and support internationally can help to win this vital struggle.

Finance appeal

The coronavirus crisis has laid bare the class character of society in numerous ways. It is making clear to many that it is the working class that keeps society running, not the CEOs of major corporations.

The results of austerity have been graphically demonstrated as public services strain to cope with the crisis.

The government has now ripped up its 'austerity' mantra and turned to policies that not long ago were denounced as socialist. But after the corona crisis, it will try to make the working class pay for it, by trying to claw back what has been given.

Inevitably, during the crisis we have not been able to sell the Socialist and raise funds in the ways we normally would.

We therefore urgently appeal to all our viewers to click here to donate to our Fighting Fund.
