Why have students turned their backs on free speech? According to an excellent piece in UnHerd by Matthew Goodwin, it's a combination of generational change, victimhood culture and the marketisation of universities.

GORMLEY MUST GO! Demonstration at Custom House

category dublin | history and heritage | event notice author Sunday June 21, 2009 15:26author by TaraWatchauthor email info at tarawatch dot org Report this post to the editors

Join a demonstration against the Minister for the Environment, on Tuesday 23 June, at the Custom House, at 12.00 noon.

The demonstrations will mark the day when Minister Gormley was supposed to submit Tara as a World Heritage Site to UNESCO, as well as the week that the European Court of Justice is hearing a case by the European Commission against Ireland over the M3 at Tara.

‘Demonstration Against Minister Gormley’s Waste of Taxpayers’ Money at Tara’

The demonstration is designed to highlight Minister Gormley’s waste of taxpayers’ money, because they Minister:

- Hired 15 consultants in December to form an Expert Advisory Panel to hold a public consultation to develop a new list of UNESCO sites, including the Hill of Tara, which was supposed to be presented at the annual UNESCO meeting in Seville on Tuesday, 23 June. They have failed to develop the list, and Tara and other sites will not now be presented.

- Is paying enormous legal fees to outside legal counsel to defend a legal action taken by the European Commission in the European Court of Justice, over the demolition of the Lismullin national monument on the M3 motorway at Tara.

- Is exposing the Irish taxpayer to enormous fines and the possibility that the M3 will still have to be re-routed, by refusing to stop works on the M3 at Tara, once the EU case was filed.

Minister Gormley will have cost this country hundreds of millions of euros if the Commission wins the case against Ireland, because the M3 will have to be re-routed.

The Minister has been throwing a bucket-full taxpayers’ money at lawyers to defend the indefensible in the European Court, while allowing M3 works to proceed at Tara.

Minister Gormley wasted more money on consultants to nominate it as a UNESCO site, even after, which has not happened.

Gormley has done the exact opposite of what a Minister for the Environment is supposed to do, by refusing to let the EU or UNESCO protect Tara.

GORMLEY MUST GO!

Hi,

I'm back!

This is pure nonsense. Ok he hasn't done it when he said he would do it. Haven't we all!!
But that doesn't mean he won't or isnt trying to.

We must wait to see what "List" he does submit....and that we will see very very soon. Like within this two weeks.

If Tara isn't on "the List" then thats' the time to campaign to have him and this inept, corrupt government removed. Lets not go off "half cocked".

We have to accept at this point that the issue of the M3 is lost. It's a done deal - built - end of story - we have lost - savetara.com are absolutely right on this point - the damage has been done - it's not repairable - there is no way all that work is going to be undone. We all need to face reality.

They will not simply undo all the construction and return the Tara Valley to what it was. It can't and will not happen.

Our best position is that he - John Gormley - succeeds - given the damage etc. - in persuading UNESCO to declare Tara and the Tara "landscap" a World Heritage site despite this damage.

How is what's left undamaged of Tara served if we campaign to have Tara NOT declared a World Heritage site? The developers will love to hear that.....talk about shooting yourself in the foot!

Like it or not we must support John Gormley's - and others - efforts to have Tara properly protected by being declared a World Heritage site. At this pont there is nothing left for us to do.
We all fought a galant campaign - and lost - with some dignity - but we lost. We can now save this area from future gererations folly by supporting the effort to make Tara a World Heritage site.

If we don't then we have failed Tara completely and we alone must live with that.
