Demand for the Establishment of an Independent Environmental Protection Agency in Northern Ireland

We demand immediate action to address the alarming degradation of our natural environment in Northern Ireland. The poisoning of waterways, pollution of protected sites, destruction of sensitive habitats, and industrialisation of our Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONBs) cannot go unchecked any longer.

Why is this important?

Our communities are also being profoundly affected by this environmental destruction, and we refuse to stand idly by as our natural heritage is plundered. We urgently call for the establishment of an Independent Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) that is robust, well-resourced, and empowered to confront environmental injustices without hesitation.

This EPA must have the authority to prosecute offenders regardless of their influence or status, ensuring that environmental crimes are met with swift and just consequences. Northern Ireland's ecological heritage is at stake, and we cannot afford to delay any longer.

Join us in demanding the creation of an EPA that will safeguard our precious natural resources for generations to come. Sign now to protect our environment and secure a sustainable future for Northern Ireland.
