Why Joyce’s Leopold Bloom still matters

‎’manufactured monsters for mutual murder, hideous hobgoblins produced by a horde of capitalistic lusts upon our prostituted labour. The poor man starves while they are grassing their royal mountain stags or shooting peasants and phartridges in their purblind pomp of pelf and power. But their reign is rover for rever and ever and ev . . .’ – Leopold Bloom, 16th June 1904

This Saturday is Bloomsday, and at 1:00PM at the Spire in Dublin, there will be a Greece Solidarity event.  The event coincides with the Greek people going to the polls on Sunday to elect a new government.  The event will also include an open assembly with the theme – ‘Cross-European Solidarity: the possibilities for combined struggle and the particular question of Greece’.

This event is being organised by members of Real Democracy Now Ireland and by Greek citizens living in Ireland. We welcome your participation and support in making it happen. Visit the Facebook Event page at http://www.facebook.com/events/237413049694776/
