• CETA Free Zone: Galway Says No To Corporate Courts
    Investor Court System (ICS) is a dispute settlement tribunal where foreign investors and corporations can take a case against Ireland for 'perceived' breaches in CETA’s investment protection standards. It allows investors to go straight to these special tribunals and sideline domestic courts and those of the European Union. Once CETA is ratified, investor court decisions cannot be challenged by either the State or the EU - this is the equivalent of handing corporations a blank cheque! Local communities and businesses across Ireland are fighting back. Together we are showing government parties and politicians that this form of corporate takeover is going to cost them dearly in the next election. And we need our local politicians to stand with us by supporting this.

If this service is removed from the community the youth of the town will suffer emmendlessly.... please help save the future!

  • Fast Track Citizenship Ireland
    Dear, As you are aware of the prevailing situation already through this hashtag #fastTrackCitizenship , tweets, and from recent articles published in IrishTimes and Medical independent but I’ll give you a quick review of the current situation. The campaign- I am leading- is for all the immigrant healthcare workers including porters, nurses, HCAs and doctors. The purpose of the aforementioned campaign is to request the DOJ to expedite the naturalisation process for these HCWs. As you’re already aware that more than 5000 people are currently waiting for naturalisation for more than 2 years, and nearly 2300 are waiting for more than 3 years, we are afraid that with covid restrictions, things will get even worse. There will be another 1000 people who’d be applying after this lockdown and just imagine the delay which will be going to happen. I can’t hopefully believe that this is all because of covid crisis. If you check the number of people who are currently waiting, you will see that this was happening even before the current crisis but yes, things have definitely become worse as of now. During this depressing time, people have been waiting for a very long time for a little happiness and I think this (#fastTrackCitizenship) will give them a great confidence-boost and resultantly will increase their morale. They’ll be motivated instead of being anxious of their future, and will be satisfyingly happy not to go for stamps/visa and paying fees every 6 months. I wish I could do something as good to make my Irish and other EU colleagues happy and I wish, in this pandemic, I can give them something to cheer about but except from giving them my moral support, I’m not being able to do anything substantive for them. Immigrants are already being warmly welcomed by Irish people, and now the government also needs to take the initiative to do the same for these hard working, committed doctors who work here to make this country prosperous and happy. Like other natural-born citizens, they belong here, and we all belong to Ireland. Many thanks Mohsin

  • Respect your workers and implement the Labour Court Recommendation
    After working for Estee Lauder in Dublin Airport for 8 years, my company decided to tear up my contract of employment and made me redundant, along with dozens of others. They also imposed pay cuts of up to €5,000 per year on staff that weren’t let go. We’ve been on strike now for 9 days and the Labour Court has ruled in our favour, but Estee Lauder management are refusing to abide by it. We have lost our jobs, lost thousands of euros in income, and yet our company is one of the largest multinationals in the world paying out massive dividends to its owners. All we are asking for is a bit of fairness and respect for the loyalty and efforts we’ve given over decades. The Labour Court said we should receive four weeks pay per year of service for our redundancy, and any loss of earnings should be compensated at 1.5 times the annual loss (for example, if you lost €3,000 per year you should receive €4,500 in compensation). This is going to be a very tough time for all of us, but particularly for workers who have lost their jobs and had pay cuts. It would help so many of us to pay our bills our rent and our mortgages if companies like Estee Lauder looked after their workers. Please Estee Lauder, do the right thing by your workers. Implement the Labour Court recommendation. Thank you for your support. Jackie Gibbons.
