Aontú Supports the “GaelVóta” Irish Language Campaign

The political party Aontú has today announced its support for the Irish Language campaign “GaelVóta”. Spokesperson for the party, East Derry candidate, Gemma Brolly, said:

 

“Is mór an onóir d’Aontú seasamh le pobal na Gaeilge agus GaelVóta a thacú. Creidimid go bhfuil ceartas agus comhionannas tuillte ag Gaeilgeoirí mar atá ag pobail eile. Bhí reachtaíocht Ghaeilge pleanáilte agus briste arís is arís agus níos mó ná 20 bliain níos moille, táimid go fóill ag fanacht. Bhuail Aontú le Conradh na Gaeilge ar na mallaibh chun reachtaíocht Ghaeilge agus GaelVóta a phlé. Bhí plé iontach ag Peadar Tóibín, Pádraig Ó Tiarnaigh, Cuisle Nic Liam agus Gemma Uí Bhrollaigh faoin obair atá déanta agus an dul chun cinn atá de dhíth. D’ardaigh Peadar reachtaíocht Ghaeilge ó thuaidh sa Dáil agus glacfaidh  sé  gach deis an easpa gníómhaíochta i leith an cheist sin a choinneáil i mbéal an phobail. Creideann Aontú go bhfuil níos mó ná béal ghrá de dhíth dár dteanga dhúchais. Déanaimid ár ndícheall leis an Ghaeilge a úsáid chomh minic agus féidir agus leanfaimid leis seo. D’aontaíomar leis na 5 éileamh agus táimid ag dúil leis an teanga a chur chun cinn ag obair ar na héilimh sin”.

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.
