Stop The Poolbeg Incinerator -Protest March To Dail - Weds 22nd Oct

category dublin | environment | event notice author Thursday October 02, 2014 23:13author by pk Report this post to the editors

Meeting at Ringsend church at 5pm and marching to the Dail. Meet us at the Dail from 6-8pm

Pressure is to be put on politicians - if this incinerator is not stopped they will lose votes (next year or early 2016 is a general election)
We need to highlight and get people of Dublin involved - this is a Dublin incinerator that will affect whole of Dublin and Ireland.

The Minister for Environment Alan Kelly can stop this incinerator if he gives the power back to Dublin City Councillors to make decisions about waste management.

We are asking people to join in our protest on Wednesday 22nd October - meeting at Ringsend church at 5pm and marching to the Dail. Stop the Poolbeg/Dublin Incinerator! (Meet us at the Dail from 6-8pm)
Location of massive incinerator. Well placed for poisoning the people of Dublin

A message from CRAI- Combined Residents Against Incineration, who have fought this project for the last 17 years, and won a few times, before it has been slipped under again in recent weeks:

Well over 60 people attended the meeting with local residents from Ringsend, Irishtown and Sandymount joined with residents from Fairview and Marino and local politicians.

The meeting was very clear the local community is determined to use people power to stop the incinerator going ahead A legal challenge is being mounted to try and stop the incinerator - this includes finding discrepancies between what the planning permission was granted by An Bord Pleanala and the EPA includes and what the contract is for now e.g. changing from 25 to 45 years and now including waste from all over Ireland and not just Dublin.

Pressure is to be put on politicians - if this incinerator is not stopped they will lose votes (next year or early 2016 is a general election)

We need to highlight and get people of Dublin involved - this is a Dublin incinerator that will affect whole of Dublin and Ireland.

The Minister for Environment Alan Kelly can stop this incinerator if he gives the power back to Dublin City Councillors to make decisions about waste management.

Stop the build of a 600,000 ton Toxic Waste Incinerator in Dublin Bays Poolbeg. Due to start in two weeks time. Your health depends on it!


Update: There is a petition which you can sign and it is here: http://www.change.org/p/minister-kelly-change-the-waste-management-act-2001-to-allow-the-elected-councillors-of-dublin-city-council-to-stop-the-poolbeg-dublin-toxic-incinerator It is titled: Change the Waste Management Act 2001 to allow the elected councillors of Dublin City Council to stop the Poolbeg/Dublin toxic incinerator

The opening text is:

The unelected Dublin City Council executive management have announced that they have given the private multinational Covanta the permission to start construction on the 600,000 tonne Poolbeg/Dublin Incinerator which will be located at the heart of the beautiful Dublin Bay in Dublin's South Inner City.

The Council signed a 45 year contract which will see Covanta make hundreds of millions in profit while the health of Dublin people is destroyed.

The local community has campaigned for almost 10 years against this toxic incinerator.

If the incinerator (which will be the largest in Europe) goes ahead it will destroy their health (and those of all Dublin), clog the roads with traffic, damage the climate, reverse recycling rates, and result in toxic ash being transported around Dublin and Ireland.

The elected representatives of the Dublin people - the Dublin city councillors - recently voted 50 to 2 against the decision of City Council Manager to go ahead with the contract with Covanta.

This incinerator is anti-health, anti-climate and anti-democratic.

Construction is only weeks away from starting on site.

We need people power from across Dublin, Ireland and international to stop this incinerator gong ahead.

If the councillors are given back the powers over waste management by the Minister for Environment then they can vote to stop the Poolbeg/Dublin Incinerator.

Please sign the petition calling on the Minister for Environment, Alan Kelly to transfer responsibility for decision making waste management away from the unelected City council executive and back to democratically elected councillors in Dublin City Council so they can stop the Poolbeg/Dublin toxic incinerator.
