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!
