If you have experienced or witnessed a racist incident, there is something you can do about it.
Support Plan B.
Austerity policies are clearly not working and in fact are making the situation worse than it needs to be. Claiming Our Future has developed an alternative, called Plan B. Plan B offers people credible, sustainable ways of generating jobs and maintaining front line services. The plan protects the most vulnerable in society from further hardship and illustrates the urgent need to renegotiate the banking debt. To support Plan B sign the petition.
Sign the petition to have racist motivation in crime recognised in Irish courts.
There is currently no provision within Irish legislation to deal with racist crime. It is at the discretion of judges to consider racist motive as a factor when determining a sentence in a case; these cases are treated like any other case. Making racism a crime sends the message that racism is not acceptable in Irish society and secures justice for victims. So please join us in the petition and encourage others to sign up as well. When we get a significant number of signatories we’ll list them here too.
