Shamrock of Ireland NOT for Trump
We the people of Ireland view the SHAMROCK as a symbol of Irish Friendship. A symbol of a country that fought oppression. That upholds values of respect, dignity, friendship and equality for all people. We the people of Ireland and our many friends in other free and un-oppressed countries do not hold loyalty to the those who seek to oppress. We oppose President Trump's vicious oppression of women, minorities LGBT, Muslims, first peoples of America and seeks to remove safeguards in healthcare and supports to vulnerable people. We the people of Ireland (and our friends of other countries) ask Mr Enda Kenny, our Taoiseach, to refuse oppression. to refuse to hand over the symbol of friendship - our Shamrock, to an oppressor, on March 17th 2017 We the people of Ireland do NOT give our Taoiseach permission to debase our shamrock in presenting it to President Trump, thereby being seen to approve oppression. We call on Enda Kenny NOT to give the beautiful Shamrock to such an oppressor.
Emily Barut must have justice
Emily Barut, an 11year old disabled child living in Ireland has died. Her mother Bernadette Scully was found not guilty of manslaughter. Throughout the trial of her mother there was reference to too little HSE support, even refusal of additional support from the HSE Those of us who care about disabled people getting the support they need, support supposed to come from the HSE are asking Questions. Was Emily Barut sufficiently and appropriately cared for and supported by the HSE ? Did lack of, or insufficient HSE support for Emily Barut contribute to her death? In what way should the HSE have cared for and/or supported Emily Barut? We the signatories here, are concerned about HSE service provided to Emily Barut. We ask Ministers McGrath and Simon Harris to instigate an independent inquiry into the level of HSE support Emily Barut received, in her own right, from the HSE in Ireland.
HSE - Give 'direct payments' to Kennedy twins Co Wicklow , Ireland
Ann and Margaret Kennedy, disabled wheelchair users with a rare neuro- muscular disease, have been REFUSED 'direct payments' by the Irish health service executive HSE , to become leaders. Direct payments allow disabled people control and power over their own lives. With direct payments the health authority give US the budget to organise , employ and direct how we live our lives. We become 'leaders' in this arrangement. Leaders of our own lives. Our local health authority refused direct payments on the grounds it is not statutorily obligated to give us direct payments. Meanwhile we are trapped in a system of annihilating subservience to health providers. Which means a substandard life. A substandard existence...not living or leading at all. We want RIGHTS , our RIGHTS to manage, control and direct our own lives. We live in co Wicklow Ireland. Please write to Finian McGrath, minister for disabilities, Leinster house, Dublin, Ireland to respectfully demand universal rights to direct payments for us twins Margaret and Ann kennedy and all disabled people in Ireland.
