Aontú shall be hosting it’s 6 county party think in on the 2 nd of October in Derry where

elected representatives, members, guests, and party allies shall be engaging in policy debates

and formulation with the party’s expanding in the North and Stormont Elections upcoming.

 

An Teachta Tóibín: “Aontú – despite no state funding and the challenges that come with the

global pandemic – has grown significantly in just the last year. The party has consistently

grown in polls across the island of Ireland, and offers a grassroots alternative to the

establishment parties in Stormont. Our 6 county think in is a brilliant opportunity for our

party representatives and members to get together in person and show the true meaning of

people power in action. It will be an issues-based, substantive discussion which will

underscore the need for wholesale political change across the 6 counties, and ultimately 32

counties.”

 

Cllr Denise Mullen: “Aontú has shown itself to be the only genuine alternative to the

Stormont Establishment parties, and which has sought to break the partisan deadlock which

has hurt the people of the North the most. Our Derry Think In is a brilliant opportunity for us

to come together and discuss policy initiatives which will best deliver Irish unity, economic

justice and the protection of life at all stages.”

The Irish political system is radically broken



In Ireland the vast majority of elected representatives put a finger in the air to check which way the political wind is blowing. They have one eye on their leaders – seeking brownie points – and another eye keeping their seat safe. If elected reps shut up and do as they’re told, they are promoted; if they stand up for what they believe in, they are demoted. No wonder we have the political class we have. No wonder a half a billion euro is being buried in a hole under the National Children’s Hospital and that Stormont is in stalemate.



Throughout Ireland, many people are now afraid to say what they feel, many are afraid to respectfully engage on a range of different topics. Many feel there is a new censorship and a new political correctness in Ireland, that opposition to the establishment is being deleted.



Respectful opposition is not the enemy. Respectful opposition is a critical element of a functional democracy. Aontú will have the backbone to stand up, without fear, for you.
