Event Details

Open Meeting to develop a 
'Declaration for a New Republic’. 
Friday, June 13th, 2.30-4.30pm, venue tbc

There are unique moments, inspired by history which offer possibilities and hope for radical transformation in the present and future. 2016 could be  one such opportunity. It will be 100 years since the Easter Rising and the proclamation of the Irish Republic. It is also likely to be the year of the next General Election. We face major challenges and questions about what type of future Ireland is going to have? What values should shape Irish society in the coming decades?

Will it remain a deeply unequal society? Austerity has resulted in poverty and deprivation, emigration and unemployment. The economy serves neither society nor the environment. Politics has reflected no appetite for transformative change and remains unresponsive to those who experience poverty and inequality. Now more than ever, we need alternatives.

Claiming Our Future is a national broad based non-party political network made up of individuals and organisations across civil society. At our inaugural conference in the RDS in 2010 over 1000 participants identified the values of equality, environmental sustainability, participation, accountability and solidarity that should be at the heart of a new Ireland.

What is the Declaration?

Building on the commitment to these core values, Claiming Our Future is planning to develop a ‘Declaration for a New Republic’. The development of this will take place between now and 2016 and will involve as many people as possible. This process will include public meetings, on-line interaction, a large national assembly in late 2014, and participative action, amongst other aspects.

We are inviting organisations, campaigns, communities and individuals to an open meeting on June 13th in Galway to explore what this might look like and how best to develop and promote such a Declaration. We invite you to participate to discuss, develop and shape the idea.
