#Facebook thinks the far-right, pseudo-militia group #BritainFirst's posts are OK, apparently. The group's page was removed from the social media site for hate speech on Friday – only to be restored again an hour later.

Justice for the buried babies

We, the undersigned, call for a full judicial investigation into the circumstances surrounding the deaths of 796 children in #Ireland, some of whose bodies may lie in a mass grave in #Tuam, Co #Galway, and for this to be part of an investigation covering all institutions of ‘care’ nationwide. 

We understand that the children died while they were in the custody of the Bon Secours Sisters between approximately 1925 and 1961. We are concerned that evidence suggests that the mortality rate for these children was significantly higher than the national rate of infant mortality at the time. And we are shocked at reliable, contemporaneous accounts that the children were malnourished and seemingly uncared-for, when the #Irish State was paying the Bon Secours to look after them. 

We request that the investigation begin at the earliest possible date and that the final report is made public, in full, when it is complete. We also request that any individual or organization which fails to co-operate fully, and in a timely fashion, with the investigation should be charged with the obstruction of justice.

Irish Minister for Justice and Equality Frances Fitzgerald can shed light onto the Tuam childrens' mass grave scandal -- let's urge her to act fast and call for a full investigation. Sign the petition and tell others about it!

In light of current revelations concerning the #Catholic #Church in #Ireland, I've been musing on the #Ulster unionist slogan "Home Rule means #Rome Rule"....
Were they necessarily completely wrong?

Did you realise that #Google was in the business of #outing people?

#Google+ policy re verifying IDs of "#nicknames" has effectively #outed people and #exposed them to risk on account of their #sexuality, #gender or #politics etc

Is it,time now,to jump,ship from Google?
