Stand Up For Democracy: Protest At The Dáil- Tuesday July 9th. 5.30pm

category dublin | environment | event notice author Tuesday July 09, 2019 11:38author by pbp Report this post to the editors

We are facing a huge crisis over our climate. But the Government is not allowing the Dail to vote on a People Before Profit sponsored Climate Emergency Bill that would keep fossil fuels in the ground.

The main mechanism they are using is a little known and obscure legal measure known as a ‘money message’. When any law imposes a financial cost on the state, the government can attach this ‘money message’ to stop debate.

However, this Fine Gael led government are totally missing this measure. How, for example could a bill to stop the issuing of future licences for oil and gas exploration impose a cost on the state?

Fine Gael have killed 55 opposition bills by using this way.

Stand Up For Democracy: Protest At The Dáil- Tuesday July 9th. 5.30pm

We are facing a huge crisis over our climate. But the Government is not allowing the Dail to vote on a People Before Profit sponsored Climate Emergency Bill that would keep fossil fuels in the ground.

The main mechanism they are using is a little known and obscure legal measure known as a ‘money message’. When any law imposes a financial cost on the state, the government can attach this ‘money message’ to stop debate.

However, this Fine Gael led government are totally missing this measure. How, for example could a bill to stop the issuing of future licences for oil and gas exploration impose a cost on the state?

Fine Gael have killed 55 opposition bills by using this way.

They are being supported in this devious strategy by the Fianna Fail Ceann Comhairle, Seán Ó Fearghaíl. It is another example of the partnership arrangement between the two right wing parties who dominate our political system.

The only way we can stop this game playing is to mobilise outside the Dail on Tuesday 9th July at 5.30.
