An open letter to the National Broadcaster of Ireland (RTÉ) regarding the Sydney Rose

This petition had 5,973 supporters


Last Monday during the Rose of Tralee, Ms. Brianna Parkins, the Sydney Rose, spoke about her personal belief that Ireland should hold a referendum on repealing the 8th Amendment to the Constitution of Ireland. RTÉ received a number of complaints in response to her comment. Too often, complaints and negative comments get more attention than positive comments, so I have created this open letter to counteract the complaints with messages of support.

 

To whom it may concern,

In response to the small number of formal complaints RTÉ has received in relation to the Sydney Rose's comments on Monday night's (August 22nd) Rose of Tralee, we the undersigned would like to offer our formal compliments  to Ms. Parkins and welcome her voicing the need to repeal the 8th Amendment in Ireland. Noting that RTÉ does not appear to have a mechanism for offering formal messages of support, we ask that these signatures be assessed in the same manner as any complaints received.

Yours,
The Undersigned
