James Larkin is the labor leader and trade union organizer that brought changes to Dublin. He was a socialist, family man and one with a history of struggles and hardships. However, his dream of a better life for workers was achieved before he lay in eternal rest. Read more: Jim Larkin | Wikipedia and James Larkin | Ireland Calling
He was born and raised in England. He went to school, and like the other kids that were in his social class, he had to work on every afternoon to support his family. His spirit of helping out his mother and siblings went on even after the demise of his father.
He looked for simple and difficult jobs, all with the aim of raising something for the family. His post to the docks as a foreman was really something, and this came some years after his marriage to Elizabeth Brown. He became a full time union organizer, after a strike at the docks that won him a position at the National Union of Dock Labourers, NUDL.
James Larkin led a campaign against the Chinese immigration, which according to him, would undermine Irish workers and also reduce the job opportunities. He also led several strikes all over Ireland, following his posting by NUDL.
In 1907, he and James Sexton disagreed over the direction that NUDL was taking, and its management. He was released from the union when his aspirations went against what the union stood for. He formed his organization which he called ITGWU, the Irish Transport and General Workers’ Union. ITGWU strived to unite Irish workers, irrespective of their skills or level of experience.
After five years, he joined James Connolly, and the two friends formed another organization which they called the Irish Labour Party. This party led strikes in Dublin, which had become James Larkin’s station after leaving NUDL.
Two years later, he decided to travel to the USA. This was followed by several events, the first being the Easter Rising in which James Connolly died. James Larkin was then arrested two years after the death of his friend. He was pardoned in 1922 and put on a plane back to Ireland. Back in his homeland is where he died.

Today, evil seems to be winning the war. There’s more hate and anger in the world, according to what’s on TV. In reality, the world isn’t so hateful; it just seems like. There’s far more good being done than there is evil. Evil’s just figured out a new way to shock and awe the world, and http://www.businessinsider.com/how-did-george-soros-become-the-favorite-boogeyman-of-the-right-2017-5.
The latest tool in the evil carry-bag is demonizing philanthropy. It doesn’t sound like that’s possible, but JPost recently posted an article talking about how certain people are demonizing the philanthropy of George Soros. George Soros is a billionaire hedge fund manager who’s spent the last 30-plus years donating billions to his Open Society Foundations.
That kind of kindhearted generosity can’t be allowed to rule over evil. Evil decided to combat George Soros by making him look like a mad genius. He’s been accused of single-handedly causing the Charlottesville incident by bankrolling both sides of the dispute.
Honestly, there’s no reason for all the hate they throw at George Soros. What pissed them off the most was when he spoke out against George W. Bush’s reelection campaign. Mr. Soros comically said he’d give away his entire fortune if it meant stopping W. Bush from being president again.
It’s difficult to say if he was joking, but he did donate $27 million to Bush’s opposition. Regardless of his political stance, there’s no excuse for the endless attacks. No matter how many times they attack him or what they try to do, he’ll never quit philanthropy. He’s been a philanthropist for over 30 years, and what George Soros knows.
When he first found success on Wall Street, he started giving back. He’s been giving hundreds of millions of dollars to his own organization, Open Society. In fact, NY Times reports that he’d donated a total $18 billion to his foundation.
Unlike other foundations that receive such large amounts of funds, Open Society actually puts its money to good use. Open Society operates in over 120 countries, spreading that wealth as far as they can each time. Every year, Soros donates another $800 or $900 million and plans on continuing to do so.
Lately, he and his organization have been focused on the United States. Since Trump’s victory, America’s been in an era of hate and violence. Soros has donated millions to programs just to stop all the violence, and read full article.

Imagine a free clinic in a major city that not only provides medical care for the poor, but does so at a level of quality that is superior to that of most mainstream clinics and private practice medical facilities.
That’s what PACH (Phoenix Alliance for Community Health) has been able to accomplish since it was established to offer free medical care to immigrants, the working poor, or anyone who can’t afford to pay for medical help.
PACH is a nonprofit organization operated by an all-volunteer staff including doctors, nurses, physician’s assistants, nurse practitioners, lab technicians, physical therapists and more – all of whom donate their time and skills to bring medical aid and comfort to people with no means of paying.
PACH has proven to be lifesaving haven for immigrants in Phoenix working at low-paying jobs and facing the daily uncertainty of nonlegal residence status. But one does not have to be an undocumented worker to be treated by PACH professionals. The group accepts any person who has no financial options for medical care. Learn more about Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin: http://www.laceyandlarkinfronterafund.org/5-smart-ways-people-and-places-are-resisting-trumps-immigration-policies/ and http://www.laceyandlarkinfronterafund.org/about-lacey-larkin-frontera-fund/michael-lacey/
PACH staff serve about 30 to 40 patients per week and currently list more than 400 permanent clients. These are people who need ongoing care for such chronic conditions as diabetes and kidney disease, to high blood pressure and thyroid dysfunction.
The amazing work of PACH has attracted the attention and support of the Larkin and Lacey Frontera Fund. This is a program founded by two Arizona journalists, Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin. The Frontera Fund provides financial support mostly to groups that serve the Latino and immigrant community, including the thousands of undocumented workers eking out an existence in Arizona.
The Larkin and Lacey Frontera Fund was established with $3.7 million – money which came from a lawsuit Jim Larkin and Michael Lacey successfully brought against Arizona’s Maricopa County.
In 2007, then Sheriff Joe Arpaio illegally arrested Larkin and Lacey simply because he did not like stories the journalists were publishing – articles that exposed the brutal and unconstitutional police tactics of Arpaio and his department.
A U.S. Court of Appeals quickly agreed that Arpaio had egregiously violated the 1st Amendment of the U.S. Constitution which guarantees freedom of the press.
There is some irony that money gained from a corrupt, anti-immigrant police official is now helping poor immigrants and undocumented workers live better lives in the United States.
Jim Larkin is known for coining the phrase, “A fair day’s work for a fair day’s pay.” His words still have great meaning in today’s times. And to this day, he is known as a prominent figure in Dublin’s history. Read more: Jim Larkin | Wikipedia and James Larkin | Biography
James Larkin was born on January 21, 1876, in Liverpool, England. He was the son of immigrants from Ireland. With little education, he entered the workforce when he still a child. As he grew older, he was known around town for the work that he did at the docks of Liverpool.
And while working there, he came to realize the importance of rights for workers. He was known as a socialist and even joined the National Union of Dock Labourers and they soon noticed him for his militant strike methods.
Due to this, he was moved to Dublin in 1907.
Larkin went on to form a few groups that shaped the lives of countless workers around him. These included the Irish Transport and General Workers’ Union, the Workers’ Union of Ireland, and the Irish Labour Party. He was known as “Big Jim” to those who loved and respected him.
Even though the press was against him, Jim Larkin had a large number of followers and friends that supported his heroic movement.
And in 1914, he came to the United States of America for several years to form a socialist club in New York. Unfortunately, he was soon convicted of criminal and communist activities, which had him deported back to England.
