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.
Submission site: https://www.housing.gov.ie/housing/public-consultation-general-scheme-housing-and-planning-and-development-bill-2019

Presiding Judge: Joseph Mangan
Prosecution : Inspector Kennedy
Defendants: Conor Cregan, Owen Rice, Elaine O'Sullivan, Zelda Jeffers.

Today in Ennis Court House, the sitting of Shannon District Court (long story) was expected to be fairly routine, even for the four peace activists facing charges before judge Mangan. As it turned out, the Judge was in no humour for routine. read full story / add a comment

In the phony war on terror, thousands of people have been taken prisoner and tortured with no evidence, charges or trial.
The arrests make good PR for Bush, the admissions of error are 'less newsworthy'.
Even before we set up the peace camp at Shannon we suspected that the US Government would use Shannon airport to transport its captives to Guantanamo Bay.
After a lot of digging, and some luck, we now have a lot more than suspicion, and YOU have to help us to hold the Irish govt to account for this. a watered down version of this appeared on p6 of the Sunday Business Post today... I was expecting a bit more bite.. so here's a bit more of what's being hidden. read full story / add a comment

Delaying Bush's departure by a half-hour was a victory for the peace-lovers in the Mid-West. The Irish military's involvement, using APCs and Scorpion tanks, in attempting to put us off our stride was a shame and it failed to work for the securocrats. Short of shelling us (isn't that what they do) they were bound to fail. Victory for the Peaceniks!
