if the Arabs cannot act the Christians must..


It has become clear that Arab countries are either afraid / are controlled by / bought by the Israeli - American cabal....

since the Arabs do not have the courage to act to help the Palestinians then the Christians must act in their stead..

“Irish Artists’ Pledge to Boycott Israel”

If you are an Irish artist or an artist based in Ireland and would like to add your signature, please contact culturalboycott[at]

The Palestinian Campaign for the Academic and Cultural Boycott of Israel (PACBI) strongly welcomes the Irish artists’ ‘pledge’ to boycott Israeli cultural institutions until Israel complies with international law. This pledge not only represents a significant victory for the ethical responsibilities of international cultural figures; a key factor in the cultural boycott of Israel, but is a ground breaking strategy in supporting Palestinian struggle for freedom and justice.

At the Bottom of the Night..suicide beckons

Every life lost in the modernisation of China is so sad, so needless, so futile - one such life lost is that of the young poet;-  Xu Lizhi (1990-2014). 

I would like to extend my sincere condolences to his family and friends and also to thank the friends of the Nao project for the translations of poems by Xu Lizhi (许立志)

Here below his death poem together with commentary, background and links to the full article and more of his work.

“On My Deathbed”

I want to take another look at the ocean, 

behold the vastness of tears from half a lifetime
I want to climb another mountain, 
try to call back the soul that I’ve lost
I want to touch the sky, 
feel that blueness so light
But I can’t do any of this, 
so I'm leaving this world
Everyone who’s heard of me
Shouldn't be surprised at my leaving
Even less should you sigh or grieve
I was fine when I came...
and fine when I left.

-- Xu Lizhi, 30 September 2014




-- Xu Lizhi, 30 September 2014


For those 'employed / indentured slaves', in emerging economies there may seem to be little alternative. Is a return to the poverty / humility / simplicity of a rural backwater so bad?

Tens of thousands of the young in China are sold the illusion of a better future, glamour enhanced by photoshop in magazines, actors in roles all painted up on television and in film... much of it fantasy, lies and illusion.. sleight of mind. 

Aided and abetted by their American counterparts the Chinese company executives consuming all in their path. The wealthy international corporations engaging in abject dishonesty, studiously avoiding the images and news of the deaths of workers - workers who are treated like dogs at the end of an ornate supply chain.

The reality is that the capitalist system is built on dishonesty, greed and ever increasing consumption, for the majority of workers it is impossible to defeat the system;-

  • you will be paid a fraction of what is ever fair
  • you will work extra hours without pay
  • you will be removed / abused if you complain
  • increasing taxation will dilute your earnings
  • you can easily waste the best years of your life

This is not unique to emerging economies, all over the world people give their lives in an attempt to gain more money to gain more things.. to gain more money to gain more things.

We do not need more consumers consuming and perpetuating the nightmare of rampant consumption; we need more artists and philosophers and writers and poets...  happy to live simply without consumerist trappings. Only then will we get a reset of a system being destroyed by its own greed.


Xu Lizhi (许立志) was a Foxconn worker who committed suicide on 30 September 2014, at the age of 24, in Shenzhen, China. The full article also includes an obituary and explanatory notes.

 The poetry and brief life of a Foxconn worker: Xu Lizhi (1990-2014)

Xu's departing poem 

by Li Fei and Zhang Xiaoqi
10 October, 2014


“On My Deathbed”


I want to take another look at the ocean, behold the vastness of tears from half a lifetime
I want to climb another mountain, try to call back the soul that I’ve lost
I want to touch the sky, feel that blueness so light
But I can’t do any of this, so I’m leaving this world
Everyone who’s heard of me
Shouldn’t be surprised at my leaving
Even less should you sigh or grieve
I was fine when I came, and fine when I left.

-- Xu Lizhi, 30 September 2014

Shy, quiet, introverted, solitary

In 2010, Xu Lizhi went [from his home in rural Jieyang, Guangdong] to work at [a] Foxconn [electronics factory in Shenzhen], beginning life on the assembly line. From 2012 until February of this year [2014], over 30 of his writings were published in Foxconn’s internal newspaper Foxconn People (富士康人), including poems, essays, film reviews, and news commentaries {…} Xu posted the titles of these writings on his blog in a post called “The Maturation Given to Me by a Newspaper,” indicating his gratitude for this platform for his literary aspirations. The first time his friend Zheng (pseudonym) read Xu’s poetry, he was astonished to discover that this young man could be so talented. Henceforth, Zheng always looked for Xu’s writings in the newspaper.
Zheng’s impression was that Xu was a shy boy, “of few words, but not silent.” “Xu asserted his convictions, but he seemed quite solitary – very much the air of a poet.” When Zheng heard of Xu’s suicide, his entire [week-long] break for [China’s] National Day was shrouded in grief. He could not go outside for days.

Turning feelings into poems; fearing they'd be read by family

Most of Xu’s early poems were descriptions of life on the assembly line. In “Workshop, My Youth Was Stranded Here,” he described his conditions at the time: “Beside the assembly line, tens of thousands of workers [dagongzhe]1 line up like words on a page/ 'Faster, hurry up!'/ Standing among them, I hear the supervisor bark.” He felt that “Once you’ve entered the workshop/ The only choice is submission,” and that his youth was coldly slipping away, so he could only “Watch it being ground away day and night/ Pressed, polished, molded/ Into a few measly bills, so-called wages.”

At first Xu Lizhi found it difficult to adapt to the constant switching between dayshifts and nightshifts. In another poem, he described himself by the assembly line “standing straight like iron, hands like flight,” “How many days, how many nights/ Did I – just like that – standing, fall asleep?” He described his working life as exhausting, “Flowing through my veins, finally reaching the tip of my pen/ Taking root in the paper/ These words can be read only by the hearts of migrant workers."

Xu once said that he never showed his poetry to his parents or other relatives, "because it's something painful; I don't want them to see that."

All the Way to the Heart..

Now when reviewing the images and content from Palestine and Gaza for the last weeks this image goes all the way through to my heart... :-(

again I must ask my friends, readers and supporters world-wide to drop what they are doing and do something, something for the Palestinians and Gaza.. 

It is simply not acceptable to see the might of an aggressive nation like Israel turn all of that military muscle against a civilian population. 

To my American friends I must say your Government funds Israel, supplies the weapons that kill children, you have consistently voted against UN Resolutions censuring Israel - this must change or you will become an international pariah such as Israel is.

You will not be welcome in Ireland or anywhere else.

A relative of one of the children killed in an Israeli strike on a playground in al-Shati refugee camp mourn at a Gaza City cemetery on 28 July, the first day of the Eid al-Fitr holiday marking the end of Ramadan. Ten people, mostly children, were killed and forty injured in the attack. (Anne Paq / ActiveStills)

Boycott israeli goods

We invented boycott in Ireland - it is one alternative to violence

A boycott is an act of voluntarily abstaining from using, buying, or dealing with a person, organization, or country as an expression of protest, usually for social or political reasons. Sometimes, it can be a form of consumer activism. Source: Wikipedia

Charles Stewart Parnell 

Speaking at Ennis on 19 September 1880, prominent Irish leader Charles Stewart Parnell said;-

“When a man takes a farm from which another had been evicted you must shun him on the roadside when you meet him, you must shun him in the streets of the town, you must shun him in the shop, you must shun him in the fairgreen and in the marketplace, and even in the place of worship, by leaving him alone, by putting him in a moral Coventry, by isolating him from the rest of his country as if he were the leper of old, you must show your detestation of the crime he has committed”. 

This type of “moral Coventry” was used in the case of Captain Boycott, a County Mayo land agent, who was isolated by the local people until his nerve broke. This led to a new word entering in to the English language, boycotting.

There is a long standing boycott campaign against israeli goods and it is past time that it was universally adopted.  Identifying anything with a 729 barcode is obviously very easy but to be effective the boycott must extend far beyond that. CRH must be brought to heel, but that is for another day...

Additional articles on boycott to follow shortly. Please see the Ireland Palestine Solidarity Campaign on current campaigns;-

From Rafeef Ziadah -, Monday 28 July 2014 09.36 BST

"The attack on Gaza is not a war between two equal sides. It is an onslaught by a powerful military state, armed and supported by the west, against an impoverished, besieged and displaced people. The talk of governments is cheap. As long as talk is all there is, the life of our children remains even cheaper. We must step up our boycott, divestment and sanctions, campaigning internationally to end Israel’s impunity."

Please Support Gaza

Please support Gaza and the Palestinians. 

Ireland has a long history of supporting the underdog even though for much of our own history we have been on the receiving end of the imperialist jackboot.

This is not about politics, or the relative merits or demerits of Hamas or the PA;-

  • it is about 1.8 million people squeezed into an outdoor concentration camp.
  • it is about children murdered in their beds
  • it is about an illegal blockade
  • it is about illegal settlements
  • it is about a total disregard for UN resolutions
  • it is about one law for israelis and another for Palestinians
  • it is about child arrests and torture
  • it is about justice for the Palestinians

Carnage in Gaza

Please do not sit there in your complacency and think it is only the headcases and the disaffected and the weirdos with nothing better to do that are protesting about Gaza... 

Pierre Krähenbühl, the commissioner-general of the UNRWA, says that initial evidence indicates that the UN school was hit by Israeli artillery shells.

"I condemn in the strongest possible terms this serious violation of international law by Israeli forces," 

"This is the sixth time that one of our schools has been struck. Our staff, the very people leading the humanitarian response are being killed. Our shelters are overflowing. Tens of thousands may soon be stranded in the streets of Gaza, without food, water and shelter if attacks on these areas continue.
We have moved beyond the realm of humanitarian action alone. We are in the realm of accountability. 

I call on the international community to take deliberate international political action to put an immediate end to the continuing carnage."
