“A Spectacle of Defiance and Hope -Stop tearing the hearts out of our Communities” -Dec 10th City Hall December 4, 2010

A Leaflet for “A Spectacle of Defiance and Hope” to be held at City Hall on December 10th 2010.

“On December 10th, a broad range of communities, community and youth organisations, trade unions, cultural groups, students and campaigning organisations from Dublin and beyond are coming together to participate in a Radical Spectacle. The heart is literally being ripped out of our communities and this affects the country as a whole. The Spectacle will be an act of Creative Resistance to the redundant policies of a redundant regime.

This day is United Nations International Day of Human Rights around the world and is an appropriate moment to mobilise. The Spectacle’s participative, imaginative and heartfelt approach will demonstrate that there is another way to a more equal and a more just Ireland. The Spectacle says STOP this madness of punishing ordinary people for the mistakes of others.

  1. Can I propose we convert the electoral register to a web-based one to allow all voters to vote on all issues after submissions have been made by those with a knowledge of the issue (eg Gov Dept CEOs, academics etc.). This arrangement could run happily alongside the existing sham that passes for Parliamentary Democracy in Ireland. This would provide an immediate “persuader” to influence TDs and longer-term can be used to replace the current system altogether, ie introduce real democracy at last.
