• Enact the Occupied Territories Bill
    At this stage in the genocide it is unbelievable that Ireland has a powerful bill, that could help the people of Palestine, waiting in the wings to be enacted since 2018. It took immense effort from many political, academic and legal minds to get it passed through our legislature. There is no legal excuse for stalling it any longer. To quote Sen. Frances Black “... it’s not a legal issue, it’s a question of political will. The weight of legal advice makes it clear that we can pursue this if we’re willing to be brave about it – we need to stand up and show leadership”. (Irish times, 13 Jun 2020.) Something has to begin the process of turning the tide on the genocide in Palestine, especially Gaza. The OTB has been identified by multiple organisations nationally and internationally as the single most important and effective action that Ireland as a nation can take, at this time in April 2024, . Enacting the OTB can without doubt have a ripple effect throughout the world. Let's throw the pebble in the ocean of support for Palestine and see it do the work it was always intended to achieve.

  • Name The Phibsborough/Glasnevin Metro Stop After The Brian Boru Pub
    The Brian Boru Pub has been situated on the banks of the Royal Canal and has traded as a public house for over a decade. Such is its place in the collective consciousness of Dubliners, it has featured in the prominent works of James Joyce (Ulysses) and James Plunkett (Strumpet City). The pub is to be replaced with a station on Metro North and we believe that the calls, heretofore, for the new Metro Station to be named in accordance with the pub are entirely apt. Please sign so that we can afford our built heritage the respect it duly deserves.

  • Rename Docklands to 'Dublin Markievicz'
    Whilst many stations around the country are named after leaders of the revolutionary period, none are named after female revolutionaries. This is a sad reflection on the historical lack of importance attached the gender equality in the public realm. Constance Markievicz was a trailblazer in many ways: she was the first women to be elected to Westminster, the first female cabinet minister in Europe in the first Dáil, a suffragette, socialist and feminist. It is time we began to recognise the contribution of such women to our nation, and this would be a fine way to recognise her.

  • Stop the greedy gambling corporations
    Gambling addiction has the highest suicide rate of any addiction and problem gambling is on a sharp rise in Ireland. With gambling corporations constantly advertising their products and hiring data scientists and psychology experts to make their apps more addictive, we are in desperate need of proper regulation. Currently, the gambling industry in Ireland self-regulates. The Programme for Government in 2020 promised to establish an official gambling regulator but it still hasn't happened.

  • Baileys, don't sponsor a Eurovision that includes Israel
    We cannot allow a country that is deliberately killing aid workers and journalists, slaughtering tens of thousands of civilians, destroying hospitals, starving people, to sing alongside us. Allowing Israel to take part in the Eurovision would send an implicit message to the world that breaking international humanitarian law over and over again is acceptable.

  • UK Government: Fund Casement Park Now
    Last year, Chris-Heaton Harris promised that “we'll sit down round a table and the money will get sorted out." Reports say that the GAA have a written guarantee from Heaton-Harris that the stadium will be ready in time for Euro 2028 - the first time a major international tournament has been held in NI. Everyone else has been sitting around the table and working together to provide funding for Casement. The Irish government, GAA and NI executive have recommitted to funding the rebuild over the past few weeks. Stop backtracking on your promises and fund Casement Park now!

  • The removal of Joe Biden mural in Ballina
    Having a large mural of US president Joe Biden in Ballina reflects very badly on the people of Ballina, Mayo and Ireland who hold very different views to Joe regarding the ongoing genocide in Gaza.

  • UK Government: Stop Censoring Kneecap and Irish Art
    On February 8th 2024, the UK government blocked a British Phonographic Industry (BIP) funding award that would help Belfast rap trio Kneecap to expand their music in global markets. Their application was approved and signed off by an independent selection board, but he UK government overruled this decision. A spokesperson for Kemi Badenoch cited that the UK government "didn't want to hand out UK tax money to people that oppose the United Kingdom itself." The British government blocking arts funding for a group because they aren't pro-union goes against the very essence of the Good Friday Agreement, artistic freedom and free speech. No government should be removing funding due to an artist’s position on constitutional the future of the north.

  • TV stations must add live captioning & subtitles. Deaf & hard of hearing people need TV too.
    Both my parents are hard of hearing, they had three children with full hearing. We grew up with sign language, with subtitles on the telly and with an appreciation for how hard things are for deaf people. There's 103,000 deaf or hard of hearing people in Ireland. They deserve a decent subtitling service, regardless of the T.V station, show or type of programme. Unfortunately subtitling is patchy, sometimes out of sync or sometimes not provided at all. Please support this by adding your name.

  • Irish Artists demand the exclusion of Israel from Eurovision 2024
    The exclusion of Russia from Eurovision in 2022 following its invasion of Ukraine was hugely significant and demonstrated Eurovision's capacity to take an ethical stance on human rights. Martin Österdahl, Eurovision’s executive supervisor, previously spoke about this decision regarding Russia, stating, "When we say we are not political, what we always should stand up for are the basic and ultimate values of democracy."

  • Don't rename Pairc Uí Chaoimh in Cork
    This stadium belongs to the fans. It holds great memories for us all. The County Board are not the owners of the stadium, just the custodians of it. To open the door to corporate renaming for the highest bidder will strip away an intangible element of what makes the GAA so special here in the Rebel County. Once that deal is made, there is no going back. We don't want our stadium named after Supervalu, McDonald's, Shell or whoever else has deep pockets. Do not rename Pairc Uí Chaoimh as Supervalu Park.
