Why is the vast majority of Irish media dominated with an undoubting and uncritical attitude towards a single theory of the 'crisis'? What role does it play in legitimising, rather than challenging, the structural causes of growing inequality? And what does this mean for radical interpretations of democracy, public space and the remaking of common sense? pls share.

"The Wake Up Call" is a short documentary on the politicized street art that has emerged in Athens during the course of the Greek economic crisis.
The documentary follows four Greek street artists (Paul, MaPet, Absent & Bleeps) in their attempt to leave an imprint on the urban landscape of Athens. Politics, satire and colours are merged together to create an outdoor manifestation of ideas, far from the dominant ideology.
By documenting the work of the four artivists, "The Wake Up Call" reveals an attempt to force a political awakening on crisis-stricken Greece through street art.

This week we come face to face with a particular reality that again causes us to pause and ask whether the Irish state is, by its very nature, racist.

We take this up the issue of state racism in our interviews with Shane O Curry and Ronit Lentin where we explore Ireland?s abysmal record in its interactions of migrants who are considered ?non-white?.

Our show Absent Voices is now online. We examine the changing nature of prostitution in Ireland, it's relationship with sex trafficking, and the extent to which it has become a migrant issue. Migrant's have historically been excluded from legislative processes that affect them. We ask whether the proposed legislation will help migrants working in the sex industry or whether it merely lets the State off the hook.

Migrants' voices and experiences in Ireland have historically been ignored and excluded from both public debate and the processes of legislative changes than affect them. In “Absent Voices” The Live Register takes a critical look at the proposed changes to prostitution laws in Ireland to see if this exclusion continues today.

This episode was made with the support of The Mary Raftery Journalism Fund.
