• Trinity College Dublin: Boycott Israeli Apartheid!
    We call on TCD to boycott and divest from all companies which operate in historic Palestine or which are complicit in Israeli apartheid. This includes companies which manufacture arms or security technologies used by the state of Israel to carry out ethnic cleansing and implement apartheid against the Palestinian people, such as Raytheon Technologies and BAE Systems. TCD currently has investments worth €2.5 million in such arms companies, thereby making every member of the college community complicit in Israel’s crimes and oppression of Palestine. We will not stand for this and demand that the college divest from these companies and commit to boycotting all potential collaborations with such companies in the future. We call on TCD to cease all collaboration with Israeli universities in accordance with the guidelines laid down by PACBI, the Palestinian Academic and Cultural Boycott of Israel. These guidelines call for a boycott of Israeli academic institutions, rather than individual academics, as these institutions have played a key role in the ongoing colonisation of Palestine. We especially urge the boycott of Israeli universities wholly or partially in the Occupied Territories such as Ariel University and the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. We also demand the immediate cessation of research cooperation with Israeli universities that is in any way connected with the security and military industries.

  • Recognising the Irish Security Sector
    While thousands in the public sector continue to rightfully stage protests and demand fair treatment, compensation for their collective efforts and hard work throughout the pandemic, and much deserved recognition, thousands in the private Security (Static Security Officers, Patrol Drivers, Camera Operators, Retail Officers, Door Guards) remain vastly under- appreciated and unrecognised. At the height of the pandemic employers were quick to send out official letters explaining how all of their security officers and employees were in fact essential front line staff. Yet aside from making sure workers reported for duty unimpeded by government sanctioned lock downs, security officers have not been allotted the respect and treatment befitting of a front line worker, despite having continued to work uninterrupted through the Covid pandemic. Those of us in the security sector have not had a raise in nearly three years. We continue to work erratic hours, long shifts, and for low wages. Dealing directly with the public, guarding businesses, protecting staff, enduring abuse and lawlessness, monitoring premises and patrolling properties, ceasingly since March (2020). Just as health care workers, Garda, and retail workers have diligently worked. The difference being, whereas other sectors have been lauded with praise and talks of bonuses, there is absolutely no mention of security staff. In the spirit of fairness, equality and gratitude, we would like to be officially recognised for our efforts and contributions in one of the most diverse and inclusive sectors in the country.

  • Leave Sonesta Green Alone.
    This is another attempt of forcing something that nobody asked for and is not required. There is currently a similar set up of equipment and resurfacing in Malahide Demesne, Robswall and Seabury. - The Village Green, New Street, and the attempts of the 'sky walk' and paving Bridgefield are examples of the previous rail-roading that has been attempted or achieved in the past. It is not a requirement to have every single green area laden with rubber mats and metal equipment. When there are so many projects being forced up on us without any discussion, it is time to point out how important a discussion is. Please help stop the attempt of this going ahead by asking for it to be halted until there is more discussion.

  • Make Marino more child friendly and safe for our children.
    We had a child run out the gate of the green after their dog straight into an oncoming car - luckily this time the driver was driving slowly within the 30km limit and was able to stop safely.

  • Stop data centres being built.
    Because this affects EVERYBODY in Ireland, it is not something that happens to other people - it will impact all facets of business, enterprise, services and the private lives of individuals. Apart from the imminent and real danger to sick people living at home who require a regular, uninterrupted electricity supply and indeed to hospitals and care homes, just reflect on the effects of a power outage on electrical appliances and internet access. It will be too late to protest when the centres have been allowed to be built, most of which are absorbing energy without allowing any facility to use renewable energy supplies. It isn't just electricity supplies that will be affected, an inordinate amount of water is also required to keep these centre running efficiently. It is also important to note that these centres DO NOT employ many people. Many countries in Europe have put a moratorium on the building of these energy grabbing entities because they realise the devastating effect they have on national energy supplies.
