Make sure you have your say!

Do you feel disconnected and alienated from policy-making at a national level?
Then come along and have your say.
When? Monday October 11th @ 7.30pm
Where? Longford Women’s Link, Ardnacassa Avenue, Longford.
“We are organizing this local meeting to highlight our concern at Government policies that are increasing poverty, damaging our public services and continuing to degrade our natural environment. This meeting in Longford will give people the opportunity to state the kind of Longford they would like to see in the future and also to create a more equal, inclusive and sustainable Ireland. We will bring the ideas we identify to the national ‘Claiming our Future’ event in late October so we can join forces and work with like minded groups across the country” said Tess Murphy, CEO of Long ford Women’s Link.
‘Claiming our Future’ is an initiative to build an alliance of civil society groups such as community groups, trade unions and environmental organisations for equality, inclusion,
sustainability and human dignity.
‘Claiming our Future’ was developed by Is Feidir Linn, the Irish Congress of Trade Unions, the Environmental Pillar of Social Partnership, the Community Platform, Social Justice Ireland and TASC. It now involves a wide range of groups including community groups, migrant worker organisations, women’s groups, environmental organisations, trade unions, disability groups, youth groups, older people’s organisations, cultural groups, social media, student groups and global justice groups.
On the 30th October 2010 ‘Claiming our Future’ is organizing a national event to bring all these sectors together to deliberate on the policies and the strategies needed to create a more equal, inclusive and sustainable Ireland. The event will be in the RDS in Dublin.
If you cannot attend the Longford event you can still register for the RDS on
