dublin / animal rights / press release Monday March 07, 2011 21:18 by Bernie Wright   image 1 image
On February 1st 2011 in Dail Eireann, whilst speaking to John Gormley , the Meath TD Shane Mc Entee said ‘The Deputy did not get to ban the Ward Union after all his talk.’ And ‘Its members are still hunting’.

As Shane Mc Entee is confirming that the Ward Union Staghunt are now breaking the law, should he not, as an elected representative in Dail Eireann condemn the blatant disregard of Irish Legislation by the Ward Union.

As part of a group who monitor the Ward Union we can confirm that they continue to hunt twice weekly as they have in the past and as they intended to do by issuing a meet card at the start of this season. When legislation means nothing to officially elected TDs why should they be allowed to represent the people in Dail Eireann.

This is the second step in our campaign to reclaim a space to fight for education as a right and to take back the university. The text of the letter follows. read full story / add a comment

éirígí Dublin City Councillor Louise Minihan was handed a two month suspended sentence and a €1,500 fine on Friday last [February 25] following her convictions on charges of assault and of causing criminal damage. The convictions arose from a high-profile protest against the under-funding of the health service which took place on November 1, 2010. As part of that protest Louise poured diluted red paint over the clothing of the then Twenty-Six County Minister for Health Mary Harney at Cherry Orchard Hospital in Dublin.

CESCR General comment 4. (General Comments)

Habitability. Adequate housing must be habitable, in terms of providing the inhabitants with adequate space and protecting them from cold, damp, heat, rain, wind or other threats to health, structural hazards, and disease vectors. The physical safety of occupants must be guaranteed as well. The Committee encourages States parties to comprehensively apply the Health Principles of Housing 5/ prepared by W.H.O which view housing as the environmental factor most frequently associated with conditions for disease in epidemiological analyses; i.e. inadequate and deficient housing and living conditions are invariably associated with higher mortality and morbidity rates.” read full story / add a comment

Beyond the political and financial classes, Irish people’s response to the crisis has surprised many on the Left, especially in the UK. Looking to riots in Greece last year, and more tangentially, the revolts spreading like wildfire across the Middle East, why, they ask, has Ireland not been more restive? Why, with joblessness running at over 13% and 1,000 people emigrating every week, did it take two years, and the intervention of the IMF, for mass street protests to take place? Where is the anger, why has Yeats’s ‘passionate intensity’ been monopolized by Fine Gael, a party of the rural and middle classes? read full story / add a comment

SIPTU members at the Davenport Hotel in Dublin mounted pickets this morning after being taken off the roster for refusing to sign new contracts reducing their national minimum wage rate by almost €1 an hour. When the legislation was being passed, the Minister for Finance, Brian Lenihan, gave assurances that existing employees of companies on €8.65 an hour could not have it reduced without their consent. However, the workers concerned, all women from Eastern Europe, have been brought into three meetings over the past three weeks and repeatedly told they must sign the new contracts or face being taken off the roster. They were not given a copy of the new contract, either in English or in their own languages.

Today members and supporters of Dublin Shell to Sea gathered the top of Grafton Street to distribute €540 billion ‘commemorative bank notes’ to members of the public, symbolising the cost to the exchequer of the extraordinary giveaway of Ireland’s oil and gas reserves. This was part of a national Shell to Sea day that saw leafletting in 8 other towns and cities around Ireland as well as Dublin. read full story / add a comment
