Part of my walk to the university along the canal, where it meets the Poor Clares, Western or Convent River, so named because of the Franciscan order on the far side of the hedge (the area being called ‘Nun’s Island’), with the cathedral beyond. The waterways of Galway city are fascinating, if a bit difficult to decipher (every time I look at this map I get confused about another spot):

There’s another river running from an old distillery, now the university grounds - it’s the narrow green line in the top right - that appears to actually go under the canal - the leftmost curve - in a deep (but otherwise open) culvert. It then runs through trees to the east of the cathedral, before pouring out into the main river (in the map above, the turqoise is the elevated level of the canal and adjacent small rivers, separated from the Corrib by lock gates and the salmon weir). The various diversions and canalisation of the water flow were made to assist with the number of mills operating at the time (shown by the black dots on the map, 17 in all). Currently only one seems to still exist, a large grim building on Nun’s Island owned (and at least for a time) operated by the NUIG Civil Engineering department as a hydroelectric power plant.

The Violent Xenophobic Racism in Ireland

At 9pm last Tuesday, 44-year-old Chinese doctor, Wu Youzhong, went to investigate the sound of breaking glass outside his home in Coleraine, County Londonderry, in Ireland. When he arrived at his front door, he saw that the window had been smashed. An intruder then attacked him so violently that he had to be admitted to hospital for several days, and required consultation from an eye specialist. Dr Wu’s wife, Luo Ruoyin, said, “I heard he was just screaming in pain and I was scared. He was just holding his head and covering his eyes and blood was just running down everywhere.” The police are treating the attack as racially motivated; the couple, who have a two-year-old daughter, are reported to be intending to move away from the area.

The Chinese community in Ireland has long been a target of racial discrimination. Anna Lo, an Alliance Party politician born in Hong Kong who was elected to the Ireland Assembly in 2007, was the first politician from an ethnic minority at national level in Ireland, as well as the first East Asian to be elected anywhere in Britain. Her campaign was dogged by violent racism – including death threats – to the extent that she had to carry a panic alarm as a precaution. One far-Right website published pornographic images of Chinese women, alongside derogatory references to Anna Lo. “People from ethnic minorities are very frightened,” she said. “I have never seen ethnic minorities so fearful in Ireland.”

i think a big reason why everyone thinks radfems vilify them is because we see our movement and goal for liberation as collective and focus on class analysis, while queer and trans theory and mainstream/liberal feminism is so highly individualised that they feel we’re personally attacking them rather than their politics and theories/concepts

Reblogged from fuckyeah-radicalfeminism :

"The choice which radical feminists defend is substantive. We ask what is the actual content or meaning of a choice which grows out of a context of powerlessness. Do such choices as surrogacy foster the empowerment of women as a class and create a better world for women? What kind of choices do women have when subordination, poverty, and degrading work are the options available ‘to most’? The point is not to deny that women are capable of choosing within contexts of powerlessness, but to question how much real power these "choices" have. To paraphrase Marx and apply his words here, women make their own choices, but they often do not make them just as they please. They do not make them under conditions they create but under conditions and constraints that they are often powerless to change. When Marx uttered these thoughts, he was acclaimed for his political insight. When radical feminists say the same, they are blamed for being condescending to women."

Janice G. Raymond - “Sexual and Reproductive Liberalism”

Marxists, please re-discover radical feminism; radfems, please re-discover Historical Materialism.
