From The Socialist newspaper, 14 September 2016

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.
