Ep.443 – Thomas Pringle on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights

Our guest in the tortoise shack is Independent TD for Donegal, Thomas Pringle. Thomas tells us about his Bill to implement the UN International Convenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights, which he is bringing to the floor of the Dáil tomorrow. That Ireland hasn’t implemented this already is wrong. That several TD’s who supported it last year when in opposition look set to oppose it tomorrow is a stain on our democracy.

We discuss the need for the Bill, how it would help to begin leveling the playing field for many communities and the reasons the State are dragging their feet. We think this is an important listen.

There is also a petition for the Bill that we’d ask you to sign and share HERE.
