Another image borrowed from the Occupy movement with another Irish spin. More of the original images are available from libcom.org and occupypocatello.org. The 42% of course refers to the percentage of Irish people who described themselves as speaking fluent or partial Irish in the 2006 Census of Ireland. We are still awaiting the results from the most recent 2011 census.

    A few recent publications to explain Québec’s orientations to the world community:
    “Jacques Parizeau’s bestseller “AN INDEPENDENT QUEBEC”

    It has been nearly 15 years since Jacques Parizeau helped lead the Yes side to near victory in a referendum on Quebec Sovereignty. And he’s back, undeterred, with a new blueprint for an independent Quebec.
    No stones are left unturned: Why become independent? What is the role of the state and how should it be administered in a global economy? What new challenges face Quebec sovereigntists; their English Canadian counterparts; and their neighbours in the United States?
