At the Citizens’ Assembly (held on December 8th 2010 at the Absolute Hotel), it was decided to organise two follow up events:
1. an event to mark the Dáil vote on the “bailout”
2. an large “assembly” type event where citizens would have a chance to inform themselves, debate issues, and decide on some collective actions
The Citizen’s March was held on December 15th. With the New Year well begun, and the election fast approaching, it is time to regroup.
Beyond the electoral process, what can citizens do to make their voices heard?
How can the burning issue of deep political reform be put firmly on the agenda?
WHAT IS CLAIMING OUR FUTURE
Claiming Our Future is an umbrella group attempting to do create change in Ireland.
Claiming Our Future wants to unite the strength of individuals, volunteers, community organisations, and charities. It wants to co-ordinate civic events and actions that force change and reform in Ireland.
Claiming our Future was kick started in 2010 through funds from private charitable foundations, and help from individual civil society and trade union members. It is not a political party.
WHAT DO WE WANT?
A Claiming Our Future event in Dublin on October 30th 2010, brought together over 1000 people, and agreed the following priorities:
• Radical reform of political institutions to make them accountable to the people
• A coherent strategy for a sustainable economy, jobs and harnessing of natural resources
• An ethical banking system that serves the needs of the local economy
• Greater income equality
• Universal access to quality public services
• Human rights and responsibilities as the core values of our legal and political systems, and the basis of our international relations
There’s always an alternative.
