THE CREATOR OF THE IRISH WORKER AND PEOPLE’S ADVOCATE NEWSPAPER, JAMES LARKIN

James Larkin was born in Liverpool, England. His parents were Irish. His childhood of deprivation made him acquire his commitment to revolutionary socialism and the disruption and capitalism.

James became known because of the dock strike that took place in the year 1905. In 1906, he became the organizer of the National Union of Dock Labourers.

In the year 1908, James Larkin founded the Irish Transport and General Workers Union after he left the National Union of Dock Laborers because of misunderstandings that they had.

Within three years, the union was the biggest and most militant union in Ireland. James became the object of worker’s adulation. James Larkin’s efforts were to improve the working conditions of workers and give them their self-respect.

James Larkin was a big supporter of policies that enhanced social equality, justice and encouraged social and cultural achievement.

In 1912, he acquired the Liberty hall where he made it the union’s headquarters. He created a newspaper The Irish Worker and People’s Advocate which got a circulation of 20000, and it became the most effective propaganda sheet in Ireland.

The Irish Transport General Workers’ Union was successful in bringing together the skilled and unskilled workers. The union advocated for adult suffrage, the rights of Irish workers, demanding the nationalization of transportation, compulsory arbitration of courts and pensions for workers at 60 years.

James Larkin worked on building the union by making the headquarters a social center. The Irish Transportation General Workers’ Union made a lot of success under the guidance of James Larkin.

The vast success the union had was when it led to the establishment of the Labor Party in the Irish Trades Union Congress. James Larkin, later on, moved to the United States where he joined the Socialist Party of America, but later on, he left.

Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin: Helping Migrants from the South

Latin American countries are facing a lot of troubles. Countries especially those that are in Central America and the northern parts of South America are facing poverty, drug war, and unstable government. The people living in these areas would usually migrate north, in order to escape the problems that they are facing every day.

These people would face danger, as they traverse the drug infested territories of Mexico which borders the United States. They can be killed along the way, and if they are lucky enough to cross the border, the immigration police in the United States could send them back to where they came from.

Because of the treatment that these people are receiving, some kind hearted Americans have opened their homes and started helping people who are in need. Two of those who have been helping the migrants from the south are Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin.

Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin have been opening their house in Arizona for those who have escaped their home countries in search of a better life in the United States. Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin have established a private fund called the Frontera Fund, which has $3.75 million worth of finances.

The two have been using this private fund in order to help the migrants who do not have anything to begin with. They are using their connections in order to help migrants find a good place to stay, and they are also assisting them in looking for a new job.

Those who have earlier received help from Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin now have stable lives in the United States, and they keep on meeting up with the two just to thank them for their kind heartedness. Some are also doing the same thing that Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin do. They are opening their homes accepting migrants, and helping them with all possible means.

Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin’s private fund is the result of a lawsuit that they have filed. Back in college, the two established a publication named the Phoenix New Times, and it became one of the most well-known newspapers around the state.

Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin decided to keep the company after graduating, becoming the editors in chief. One issue that they found interesting was the case of the Maricopa County Sheriff, who has been accused of corruption by having shady private deals with property developers and receiving cash in the process.

The county attorney suggested that a case be filed against the Maricopa County Sheriff, and so Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin picked up the story and wrote it on their website. Days later, the two were arrested, being accused of posting the jury’s decision online, along with the address of the Maricopa County Sheriff. The two denied the accusations, but they are still invited to attend their hearing.

Media practitioners throughout Arizona have voiced their outcry for the arrest of the two, and the judge soon dropped the case because they cannot find any basis or evidences. Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin filed a counter lawsuit against the Maricopa County, and won $3.75 million.

At a highway checkpoint, Mr. Raúl H. Castro was stopped by the agents of the Border Patrol. He was interrogated in scorching heat despite him being elderly, and the reason for the extensive interrogation was his pacemaker which Mr. Raúl H. Castro needed to live. The device had probably set off one of the sensors.

Mr. Raúl H. Castro had the right to file a complaint against the agents for having neglected to deal correctly with the elderly, but he chose not to. Instead, what Mr. Raúl H. Castro was to make a suggestion. Mr. Raúl H. Castro proposed the instituting of new policies in terms of how to deal with the frail and the elderly.

The whole ordeal became an inspiration for the Raul Castro Institute of the Phoenix College to pursue a more fair treatment in policies.

The Raul Castro Institute also has a project that is called Arizona Latina Trailblazers. It honors Latina heroines that have become an inspiration for people. In fact, the event has become a signature of the Institute, and it became famous for it, according to Dr. Trino Sandoval. The project has served to inspire young Latina women in the state of Arizona.

The Raul Castro Institute is supported by the organization of Frontera Fund. The foundation was created by journalists and lifelong colleagues Michael and Jim.

They were victims of injustice, and their rights had been completely stomped over. The two journalists, however, did not give up and won a trial against a whole county. The trial resulted in settlement of a few million dollars.

The significant amount of money served as a stat to the Lacey & Larkin Frontera Fund. The purpose of the organization of Frontera Fund is to do what Lacey and Larkin had strived to do throughout their whole career – protect and defend the rights of people.
