Aontú release Westminster Election Manifesto

Aontú has today released its manifesto for the Westminster election to be held on 4th July.

Deputy Leader Gemma Brolly, who is standing in East Derry, said:

"At the core of this manifesto is our commitment for real accountability, a roadmap to address deficiencies from our public services to how we are misgoverned and to shine a light on areas of life that need urgent attention.  We will not shy away from difficult issues that others will not discuss in the public domain.

We are contesting ten seats across the North to give people the opportunity to vote Aontú and put our core values of life, unity and economic justice front and centre in this campaign."

You can read the manifesto here.

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 one point one 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.
