• NI Executive: Provide More funding for SEN Provisioning in NI
    Education Minister Paul Givan has confirmed that without additional funding, his department will struggle to find additional school places for over 1,000 children with SEN. The Education Authority has reported that it is "extremely challenging" to find new places in schools and "urgent investment" is needed. No child with SEN should be left in limbo before the start of the new school term. The NI Executive needs to provide more capital investment to solve this crisis!

  • Increase the Standardisation of ESG Reporting
    Although standardisation of ESG reporting is difficult, we believe that it can provide greater transparency and reduce issuers' discretion of reporting which we believe may provide leeway for ignorance of important topics. This will lead to a fairer more transparent reporting of ESG topics and in turn, will enforce companies to reduce their unsustainable practices.

  • Stop Irish Shops Supporting Israel
    Israel is withholding food, water and medical aid from Gaza. Babies and children are starving and dehydrating to death. Aid is being seized or turned away by Israeli forces at the border. They are using starvation and deprivation of medical aid as a weapon and children are paying the price.

  • Extend the Development Contribution Waiver
    Self-builders are saving between €7k and €30k+ thanks to the development contribution waiver. It's been extended until the end of 2024, which is great news for those who are at the planning stage or looking for a builder to hire. With construction costs high and builders hard to get, we need the waiver permanently instated those building a new family home.

  • Stop the Battery Storage Facility in Ballyshannon.
    There is a planning application in for a Battery Energy Storage System on the belleek road. It's quite a large industrial operation that would potentially be the equvilant of up to 2 football pitches in size(not including the extra 2 proposed buildings one of which is upto 40ft high) It's proposed to house lithium ion batteries to store energy for the grid from the wind turbines. Seems like a great idea to some but with the potential to be a fire hazard and possibility of releasing toxic fumes/gases if an incident were to occur. In close proximity to houses and the town it is a cause to concern for others. There is quite alot of information on the planning application including proposed views of this "Energy Park" from different areas. We would be grateful if you could take a look if interested and sign your support in objection to this project. The deadline for personal submissions to the planning authority is 27th March. Plans and photos will be available to view at Kilbarron house on Saturday 16th March and Saturday 23rd March 4-7.30. Feel free to drop in and have a look share your views etc

  • Save NHS Dentistry in Northern Ireland
    Getting an appointment is going to get a whole lot worse. Recently, the EU has banned amalgam fillings from January next year, and because of post-Brexit arrangements, that means a ban in Northern Ireland too. Amalgam fillings are a huge part of the work dentists do on the NHS here, particularly those in the poorest areas. The costs of using other materials are eye-watering, and that means only one thing. NHS dentistry in Northern Ireland will be a thing of the past. People in Northern Ireland have the worst oral health inequality in the UK and the highest proportion of filled teeth. If these amalgam fillings can’t be provided on the NHS, it will mean people in agony, going without treatment - and it’ll be the poorest who suffer most. But there is a way to change this. The ‘Stormont Brake’ gives the Assembly the power to stop EU laws like this one, that would have a detrimental impact on people here. We demand that Minister Robin Swann starts the process to make sure that dentists can continue to provide NHS dental services throughout NI.

  • Reinstate Public Bus Service between Galway and Dublin
    In 2021, the Bus Éireann route 20/X20 was cancelled, impacting commuters in Galway City and towns such as Craughwell, Loughrea, Aughrim and Ballinasloe. The route was privatised and replaced with the 706/706X route ran by a private company. This route ignored Craughwell, Loughrea and Aughrim and left Ballinasloe with less frequent services. Now in 2024 the private route is being cancelled, with the company saying it is not profitable enough. Public transport is an essential public service and should be ran as such, not left to the whims of private companies.

  • 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.

  • Drop Citibank from Belfast Pride
    Citibank, who are facilitating the supply of billions of pounds of Israeli weapons and enabling the slaughter of tens of thousands of Palestinians, [1] are also one of the main sponsors of this year's Belfast Pride Festival - the biggest LGBTQIA+ event in the city. This is pinkwashing at its very worst - using Belfast Pride and our LGBTQIA+ community to distract from their brutal business practices. Not only are they supporting weapons deals, Citibank is also funding several fossil fuel companies to drill for gas off Gaza, [3] - as thousands of innocent people are being massacred, and famine looms [4] as a result of Israel’s brutal siege. Israel has no right to grant licenses to companies to drill for oil or gas in the Palestinian territory. Fossil fuels have always been tied up with war and to extract oil and gas from a region whose population are being starved to death and brutally murdered, is a war crime. We demand that Belfast Pride Festival drops Citibank as one of its main sponsors!
