No Licences to Mine in Ireland

No Licences to Mine in Ireland

Cease from advertising, offering and considering granting mining licences.

I register my objection on the grounds of threats to the health and well being of the natural environment and that of the local community. Mining is a process that is hugely destructive to land, water and air and to all who require these for their continued healthy existence.
In this era of Climate Emergency and rapid species loss the granting of licenses to prospect is very much a step in the wrong direction. It is at odds with the responsibilities of this government at this crucial time for the planet and all that live in it.

Why is this important?
