In less than a week's time the Climate Bill will go through another crucial stage in the Dáil. This is make or break time! It could be the last chance we have to fix the Bill before becomes law. Tell Minister Alan Kelly TD you want to see the amendments he promised now.

The only thing that has kept the Climate Bill on track to become law at all is the continuous pressure from campaigners like you. We need one last push to make it a climate law we can be proud of. Please click through to sign the petition now and SHARE it with your friends.
The Government's draft climate law is too weak to deliver the low carbon future it promises. Ireland's emissions are among the highest in Europe and rising again. Last week, UN Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon urged Ireland to do more to tackle climate change when he said Ireland should "align its climate effort with its admirable engagement on hunger”.Minister Alan Kelly has told the Dáil he is considering possible amendments to the draft law.

Young Jemaa Sikar was fortunate. He and his family escaped the fighting by fleeing to Lebanon in 2012. Two years on and the situation for ordinary people still living in Syria continues to be bleak. Last year, the number of children in need of aid rose by 30% compared to 2013. 

We’re working with the #WithSyria coalition to urge world leaders to stop Syria sliding into darkness. We’re demanding they boost humanitarian funding, prevent attacks on civilians and find a political solution to the conflict. Sign the petition and get governments to turn the spotlight back on Syria. https://www.withsyria.com/

Our Taoiseach has been less than generous-by his recent statements-towards the plight of the Greek people; however, the Irish people-if not the state-have always been generous towards the needy. It would serve us well to reflect on our own history.
Very good article.

Three months on and the spirit of Vanuatu is continuing to do amazing things. Thanks to the generous support of people across the world, we were able to launch a solid response to Cyclone Pam.

This picture shows one of our warehouses in Saada, northern Yemen after a coalition airstrike hit on Saturday. The warehouse contained vital humanitarian supplies.

We strongly condemn this attack. Our Chief Executive Jim Clarken said: “This is an absolute outrage particularly when one considers that we have shared detailed information with the Coalition on the locations of our offices and storage facilities.

The contents of the warehouse had no military value. It only contained humanitarian supplies associated with our previous work in Saada, bringing clean water to thousands of households.

Thankfully, no one was killed in this particular airstrike although conservative estimates put the death toll in the country as a whole, since the conflict began, at around 760 - the majority of which are civilians.”
