We are facing a huge crisis over our climate. But the Government is not allowing the Dail to vote on a People Before Profit sponsored Climate Emergency Bill that would keep fossil fuels in the ground.
The main mechanism they are using is a little known and obscure legal measure known as a ‘money message’. When any law imposes a financial cost on the state, the government can attach this ‘money message’ to stop debate.
However, this Fine Gael led government are totally missing this measure. How, for example could a bill to stop the issuing of future licences for oil and gas exploration impose a cost on the state?
Fine Gael have killed 55 opposition bills by using this way. read full story / add a comment

At the end of May, The Irish Times released a survey of young people between the ages of 16 and 21 conducted by Young Social Innovators. Sixty percent of those surveyed described their generation as stressed, anxious and depressed, while a mere 11% described it as motivated. With the housing crisis (which currently sees over 10,000 people in homelessness services), precarious work and the constant threat of climate change forever looming over them, it’s not surprising that the majority of young people are not exactly as hopeful about their future as they may once have been. read full story / add a comment

I know, you may think I am deluded. How could life in an Embassy with a cat and a skateboard ever amount to torture? That’s exactly what I thought, too, when Assange first appealed to my office for protection. Like most of the public, I had been subconsciously poisoned by the relentless smear campaign, which had been disseminated over the years. So it took a second knock on my door to get my reluctant attention. But once I looked into the facts of this case, what I found filled me with repulsion and disbelief. read full story / add a comment
