• Free Car-Parking for Healthcare Workers
    The public transport system remains unreliable for staff who have no other means to get to work. For those of us who drive we are working extended hours to juggle ongoing childcare issues which have not been rectified by the recent reopening of some childcare facilities. We are and have been under enough pressure for the last 4 months. Free parking is a small mercy to grant us for our tireless efforts. Please reconsider this decision Dublin City Council.

  • Regulate dog and cat breeders in Ireland
    Too many rogue breeders who care nothing for the welfare of the animals. Many of them breed with stolen animals, traumatising the animals and leaving families devastated by losing a family member. Adults dogs and puppies are being kept in horrific conditions of disease, overcrowding, and tiny kennels and no veterinary care.

  • STOP UNSOLICITED PREMIUM TEXT SERVICES SCAM
    Because innocent, hardworking and law-abiding Irish citizens are being ripped off all day every day by these unscrupulous companies and nobody is taking action. Plus our privacy is being trangressed and compromised as our telephone numbers are being accessed.

  • Stop the Racial Discrimination in Clubs and Pubs
    It is so important because i experienced this back in 1998 when i first came to Ireland. I was even pushed out of a pub in Temple Bar for no reason. I reported to the police but nothing was done. I was shocked when my brother that came into the country recently experienced the same discrimination at the point of entry into clubs and pubs.

  • PROPER QUARANTINING: HOLD WHAT WHAT WE HAVE DEARLY WON
    On foot of huge sacrifices made these last 3 months by persons of all ages and circumstances, it would be criminally irresponsible to allow the thirst for tourism income and personal holiday travel to issue in a second wave.

  • Abolish Direct Provision
    The system has raised major human rights concerns and the toll that it takes on its residents has been well documented by NGOs, legal practitioners, experts and international bodies with the Ombudsman and the special rapporteur on child protection both calling on Ireland to abolish Direct Provision. Fine Gael, Fianna Fail and the Green Party are currently negotiating a program for government.(PFG) The abolition of the dehumanising Direct provision system has become a key sticking point in the negotiations with Fine Gael and Fianna Fail not wishing to make a firm commitment to its abolition in the PFG. In order to ratify the PFG, each party will require a vote by its members and so every member of those parties has a voice on the issue. In addition to signing this petition; Please contact your local Fine Gael, Fianna Fail and Green Party TD and Councillors and ask them to commit to only supporting a PFG which contains a firm and time limited commitment to the end of Direct Provision. Sample e-mail text: “Dear [Deputy/Councillor], I am writing to you as my elected representative. Your party is currently negotiating a program for government and, if agreed, you will soon be asked to vote to ratify this. I am asking that you contact your negotiating team in your party and let them know that you can only support a program for government that contains a firm and time limited commitment to the end of the dehumanising Direct Provision. Yours sincerely, You can find details of your elected representatives here https://www.whoismytd.com/ You can find more information on Direct Provision here: https://www.irishrefugeecouncil.ie/listing/category/direct-provision https://doras.org/direct-provision/ https://www.newyorker.com/news/dispatch/irelands-strange-cruel-system-for-asylum-seekers

  • Stop the Horrible Smell/Protect Environment in Carrigtwohill area
    Like many other people being confined to your house during the Covid-19 crises has been very difficult. But imagine how much worse would that have felt if you couldn't go for walk in your community or to your own garden and even worse on some days, to not even be able to open your windows. This is an ongoing issue, but the last 10 weeks have been especially difficult. The strong, persistence chemical odours that come from Merck Millipore have an impact on our quality of life and potentially on our health and environment. It effects approx. 6000 people. We as a community have to stand together to ensure that our voices are heard and Merck Millipore is compliant with their licences. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), local TD, HSE and Garda Siochana have been informed about the situation throughout multiple complaints form people from the community and other areas. However, their efforts have brought no real effect as we are still experiencing the same strong odours. Let's take the next step and express our concerns by signing this petition. We would like to put more pressure on Merck management, EPA and local TD to resolve this issue. Merck Millipore have continued to operate with the serious defect in their waste treatment plant and needs to be stopped.

  • Close The meat plants for covid 19
    Covid19 clusters in the meat industry is risking human lives. No amount of food is worth that. We must protect workers and allow the industry time to adapt while workers recover with pay. Imagine the fear the workers are living under and their familes at the taught of contamination with covid 19 no one should have to work under that stress. Meat plant workers are vitally important in our economic factors it is time we showed them that we care enough to not risk thier lives

  • No reduction to Covid19 €350 payment
    The Pandemic Universal Payment of €350 per week for all those who lost their income as a result of the Covid19 crisis was a welcome move by the caretaker government and an admission that the current social welfare rates and their previously proposed €203 payment were wholly inadequate. Currently the payment is set to run until 19 June. The payment needs to stay in place until the end of the current health emergency and until the full recovery of employment lost as a result of the pandemic. Any attempt to "taper off" the payment, as recently suggested by Minister Paschal Donohoe, may result in people being pushed back into a workplace before it is safe and financially punish them for a loss of income that was completely out of their control. The current payment does not cover all those who lost income as a result of the crisis. Many of those who work in the gig economy or in precarious employment were deemed ineligible because they were not working on or after 6 March. Both Over 66s and Under 18s who were working prior to the crisis were also deemed ineligible. The payment should be expanded to include these workers. The rate of €350 is an unofficial admission by the caretaker government that the current social welfare rates are wholly inadequate and rates for all social welfare payments including those on state pensions, disability and job seeker payments should now be increased to €350 per week. These measures should be taken as a first step towards creating a Universal Basic Minimum Payment to eradicate poverty in Irish society.

  • Minimum wage should be a living wage.
    It raises quality of life for everyone; with more adequate living standards for the many people that are now barely surviving on a very unjust minimum wage that puts 'gross' profit before human individuals, families and communities whose welfare is the very cornerstone of our society in the first place.
