Jan 27th Deadline for Submissions on Govt Bill to Prevent Citizens Objections to Bad Planning & Developments

The government is bringing in legislation that will more or less remove your right to object to various types of planning applications and will give free reign to developers and private companies to do as they please. The new rules would require objections only from established interest groups that are in existence at least 3 years and have more than 100 members for that time. Fees will also be far higher. This means if someone wants to put a motorway outside your door and dig a quarry in the field beside you, or build a windfarm outside your front window, a sewage works over the wall, then you have to have known about it somehow three years in advance, have formed an interest group and have 100 members, not 99 or 50 or 20 but 100 !

Friends of the Irish Environment are calling on citizens and citizens group to make their voices heard during the submission period to make our opposition clear to the State. The rights of citizens to access our courts goes back to the Magna Carta.

Submission can be made until January 27, 2020.

Mr Preston wants to know why the journalists and mainstream media are not asking
Minister Mc Dowell why he keeps referring to the attack on his daughter to the criminal case
which resulted from investigations at the Goose Pub and not to the conspiracy of silence
surrounding the removal and alteration of documents related to the civil case, in which he has
implicated Mr Joe Costello TD?

Mr Preston wants to know who provided the doorman service to the Goose Pub,
where two people implicated in the assault on his daughter were allowed
free access. Witnesses who made statements to the Gardai were minors
and served openly in the pub and allowed access to the facilities.

When Ms Preston was attacked, Mr Preston wants to know why the
security at the pub called the gardai and not an ambulance. The girl
was left standing outside the pub for fifteen minutes with a bleeding face.

Two people implicated in the case have faced serious criminal charges.
One is deceased, (shot).

Mr Preston asks again why Michael Mc Dowell TD refers the issue to the criminal case
and not the tampering with evidence in a civil case.

He wants indymedia readers to be aware that the political parties who
fight for rights of citizens do not stand in solidarity with him.

He is forty three days on hunger strike.

He has asked for Brian, who previously reported the story to make contact regarding
the situation at the Goose pub. read full story / add a comment

Peter wanted an excerpt from a letter about Palestine , published with
this article, it contains a quote by Terence Mac Swiney:

"It is not those who can inflict the most but those who can endure the
most who will conquer"

The heading and date of the letter, which was published in an Irish newspaper
recently was torn off, he retains some of the body of it, because of its pertinence
to his case. Someone brought it to him during the course of the week.

Day 41: He is experiencing little in the way of symptoms. He has sciatica in his back
and headaches, for which he is taking solpadeine. His movement is good and he
is walking alright. he is looking thinner and needs to sit a lot.
The anger is there he wants people to know that the people involved
in the cases around his daughter are murdering him and asserts again
his desire not to be removed from the Dail, by ambulance.

The Triple Arm of Good Governance: the Judiciary, the Gardai and the offices of Parliament.

Included herein: A Question tabled for written reply to Minister Micheal Mc Dowell TD.

A response to the written reply by Peter Preston.

To be added at Mr Preston's request:

"Before each Dail session, the Ceann Comhairle says a prayer that goes something like this,

Through your divine inspiration may all our actions, works and words come from thee.....

(Mr Preston insists that his hunger strike is nothing to do with the criminal case, but
to be answered by the TD who he accuses of returning to him transcripts altered by a named TD
within Dail Eireann). read full story / add a comment
