ICSA protest over beef prices at Mayo’s Dawn Meats in Ballyhaunis

By WGMedia

‘Unless prices improve further disruption cannot be ruled out.’

Sligo News File.

The ICSA have taken their protest over beef prices to the door of Dawn Meats in Ballyhaunis just weeks after similar demonstration outside ABP in Clones.

Edmund Graham, chairman, ICSA Beef Committee

Commenting on the move, chairman of the Association’s national beef committee Edmund Graham said beef sector producers “have been crucified by beef price cuts” in a year when substantial extra costs were incurred owing to extreme weather conditions.

He said farmers had faced “an orchestrated effort to drive down beef prices over several weeks,” but the price cutting had now stopped since the ICSA took action against the practice on the 5th of October.

Explaining the reason for the ongoing protest, he said the association “now want to drive price back up and no farmer should dream of selling steers this week at less than €3.85.

“Current prices are totally inadequate when costs of production are at least €4.40/kg for cattle from the dairy herd, he said. The suckler herd is not profitable unless the price is closer to €5/kg.

President of the Association, Patrick Kent said the ICSA was sending a very clear message to retailers that beef farmers were being exploited.

“There will be no hiding place for retailers now who claim they are supporting farmers. Retailers cannot boast about sustainable beef and then profiteer when farmers are not even getting the cost of production.

“Retailers and processors need to wake up to the fact that there will be no sustainable beef if they continue to squeeze the primary producer.

“ICSA is calling for a halt to the exploitation of family farms.”

He also hit out at the failure of new international markets to deliver strong prices for farmers.

“Compared to five years ago we have seen the opening of markets in the USA, China, South East Asia and this week Kuwait. Yet there has been no benefit to farmers and prices today are weaker than five years ago.”

“ICSA is sending out a strong message that farmers cannot stand idly by as their livelihoods are being decimated. This is the second day of action and unless prices improve further disruption cannot be ruled out,” he warned.

Unite the union community members to erect ‘suicide awareness’ signs at Cave hill country park

By Unite the union NI

img_0227Grassroots initiative taken as number of deaths from suicide in Northern Ireland in 20 years since peace agreement exceeds those from the 30 year Troubles

Twelve permanent Unite in the community ‘suicide awareness’ signs to go up on all pathways into Cave Hill

October 15th: Albert Hewitt, Regional Community Coordinator explained that Unite in the community members would be erecting the signs in Cave Hill park with the aim of discouraging people from taking their lives at the site.

“Sadly today, Northern Ireland is suffering from a suicide epidemic. As a society coming out of conflict, there are a lot of factors at play in that and we recognise that suicide affects all types of people, rich and poor, but those coming from the deprived working-class communities on either side of the peace walls are most likely to end their own lives.

“This initiative has been taken by members of our union who live in those deprived communities. Even when there was a functioning Executive, nowhere near enough was done about the rising number of suicides. The brutal reality is that in the twenty years since the signing of the 1998 Belfast Agreement, more lives have been lost through suicide than were lost in the entire conflict in the thirty years that preceded it.

“Unite the union is proud to back our community members in this initiative. Twelve permanent, metal signs will be erected on approach roads and pathways into Cave Hill country park. They provide contact details for Childline, Extern, Lifeline, Lighthouse and the Samaritans, encourage people contemplating suicide to ‘talk about it’ and remind them that ‘suicide doesn’t end the pain, it just passes it on to someone else’.

“With the concentration of suicides in North Belfast, Cave Hill is fast becoming a focus. If by these signs we can manage to discourage one person from taking their own life that will make the initiative worthwhile”, Mr Hewitt said.

Calls for OPW to reverse planned sell-off of residential land

By Eilis Ryan

A Workers’ Party councillor has called on the OPW to reverse its decision to sell two residential sites which it owns in Dublin city. The sites are due to be auctioned by Lambert Smith Hampton on November 6th.

Cllr. Éilis Ryan said:
“It is extraordinary that at the height of the housing crisis, we wake up to yet another story of the state selling off the family silver – when land for housing is so desperately needed.

“The two sites being sold on November 6th are small, but if kept in public hands, could be used for infill step-down accommodation for older people, freeing up public housing units, something which all agree is badly needed. Why has this option not been considered?”

The councillor continued:
“Just last June, Dublin City Council passed a motion calling on the Minister to direct the OPW to hand residential land over to Dublin City Council for development. I would like to know, did the council management deal with this motion with urgency? And why, if so, did the Minister choose to ignore it, and allow yet another land sale instead?

“In tackling the housing crisis, the key asset which the state has to work with is the land it owns. Once this is gone, any possible solution will be doubly difficult to achieve.”

Cllr. Ryan concluded by saying:
“I am calling on the Minister to intervene and ensure the OPW halts this proposed auction – and any further sale of public land in the Dublin area. Neither Glasnevin nor Ballsbridge are in need of yet another luxury penthouse development. Public housing is what’s needed, and only the state can deliver that.”
