'Can You Hear Us?' Panel Debate and Public Launch of The People's Purse Campaign

category dublin | crime and justice | event notice author Wednesday June 11, 2014 22:54author by Debt Ireland - Debt and Development Coalition Ireland Report this post to the editors

An Event on the Politics of Engagement with Government

Ireland and the wider world have gone through severe social and financial crisis over the last number of years, and many of us feel exasperated by attempts to communicate with our elected officials.

We send emails to TDs and sign our names to petitions, and yet we are left feeling that our messages go nowhere, just fall on deaf ears. We don’t feel heard, we don’t feel represented, and we don’t feel like we’re being given answers.

This compels us to wonder how do we use our voice? How do we communicate? Does dialogue even work anyway?

'Can You Hear Us?' Panel Debate and Public Launch of The People's Purse Campaign, Wednesday 25th June

An Event on the Politics of Engagement with Government,
and launch of
‘The People’s Purse - A Campaign for Global Debt and Tax Justice’


When: Wednesday 25th June, 7pm

Venue: Connolly Books, Temple Bar

Panel: TBC

Ireland and the wider world have gone through severe social and financial crisis over the last number of years, and many of us feel exasperated by attempts to communicate with our elected officials.

We send emails to TDs and sign our names to petitions, and yet we are left feeling that our messages go nowhere, just fall on deaf ears. We don’t feel heard, we don’t feel represented, and we don’t feel like we’re being given answers.

This compels us to wonder how do we use our voice? How do we communicate? Does dialogue even work anyway?

This provocative event is an invitation to enter the debate. Our panel will discuss how we communicate with our elected officials, how we articulate our concerns to be heard, how we influence government, make an impact, demand accountability and put public pressure on them.

We will discuss what works and what doesn’t work, the power of the hand-written letter, when to pick up the phone and make a call, and when dialogue simply isn’t enough…

The event is to mark the launch of DDCI’s new campaign – ‘The People’s Purse – A Campaign for Global Debt and Tax Justice’. The evening will include a political letter writing activity as part of DDCI’s ‘People’s Purse’ campaign launch. You write the letters and we’ll post them!
