Okay, so we honestly thought we’d have this issue out over a month ago. It just shows how overwhelming it can be to pull together 56 pages of pure rabble madness.

After a busy day proofing it FINALLY went off to print at about midnight last night and we’re told it’ll be landing back in Dublin before the weekend.

 

As with every issue, there’s a whole team of cats that need herding into the bag. So, us rabblers get left sat here bleeding out of our eyeballs chasing content right til the very bitter end. At this stage, we’ve taken in enough blue light from our computer screens to send our cortisol levels to the moon for the rest of our lives.

But when it all comes together, it’s worth it. Isn’t it? Please say yes!

So, this issue is another 56-page bumper affair and here’s a first look under the hud at some of the content:

  • We make like a hatchet and give it to Leo in the neck with an epic portrait of his public failures and policy wonks to date…
  • Record numbers of people are being diagnosed with HIV. The government is doing SFA about it. We’ve a historical run through of campaigning on the issue and chat about the urgent need for Prep with Act Up Dublin
  • You’ve heard about the Dublin Bus tenders yeah? There’s sly plan to run the service down and pawn em off to the mega-corps going on…
  • There’s interviews-a-plenty with hip hop bad man Deviant, indie director Niall McCann, artist Jesse Jones, UK housing documentary maker Paul Sng and Nordy rave writer Ciaran McMenamin all joining in for some rabble babble…
  • A few bad apples eh? Just to jolt your memory we get tripped over by a Guard and end up falling down memory lane to re-run some of the mega-scandals to date…
  • The BDS movement is growing. Read about Irish based companies profiteering from the occupation and the secret troll armies who fight virtual battles for the Israeli state…
  • With the Repeal movement giddily high, it’s easy to forget that removing the damn amendment mightn’t be enough.  Campaigners across the island to talk about what battles might lie on the horizon after a referendum win…
  • The only good system is a sound system. Read our rundown of six genre-busting, speaker box lugging crews determined to send you into outer bass…
  • Who remembers Herbert Simms? He was a champion architect for the city and one whose work we can learn from today…
  • Living The Regime is a razor-sharp listicle highlighting some recent gaffes and fast ones being pulled by them up on high…
  • Back in late October, the campaign for public housing burst onto the scene promising a water charges style agitation for that most basic of human needs. We see if they tick any differently to the rest of the housing movement…
  • Richard Barbrook played a key role devising Corbyn’s radical digital democracy manifesto. So, we got his lowdown on how to hack a general election…
  • UK based Director Paul Syng tells us how working class communities are being treated like shit as developers and local councils connive after profit
  • George Hook is a long time Blueshirt supporter who made a good living from greasing the gears of the establishment and the fine craft of being a reactionary wind up merchant on prime time radio. We take a look at how the hookie monster eventually fell from grace
  • The Horrorscopes, Session Pixies, We Speak In Code and the usual array of mashbag comic strips return to brighten up your sojourns to the jacks…
  • There’s more hot and spicey illustrations in this thing than your average spice bag with shit hot art being turned in by Mice, Kerz, Holly Pereira, Tommy Rash and others…
  • And of course the question on everybody’s lips….who is #Gombeen14?
