Claiming Our Future to Host National Discussion on Democracy

The Claiming Our Future movement  will be hosting  a national discussion on the nature and  future of Ireland's democracy at Croke Park on 26 May. Individuals and organisations with an interest in civil society are invited to attend  the event.

Claiming Our Future says distrust in our local democracy is evident in the refusal to pay the household charge. "The power of our national government is subservient to international financial institutions and markets. A democratic deficit is apparent in the negotiation and content of the new European fiscal compact treaty," it says in a statement.

The movement argues that we need a ‘high energy’ democracy if we are to emerge from the current crisis and flourish as a society.
