Everyone who believes in freedom of speech must and should fill out this form.

SURVEY LINK HERE




As part of reviewing the legislation on hate speech the Department of Justice and Equality is consulting the public and stakeholders about how Ireland’s law in this area can be improved.

This consultation forms part of the review of existing law in this area, the Prohibition of Incitement to Hatred Act 19189, and aims to ensure that Ireland’s legislation on hate speech is fit for purpose and is effective in meeting the real needs of communities and individuals who experience the impacts of hate speech.

Improvements in our hate-speech legislation are one element in a wider suite of measures across all areas of Government which are designed to address hatred and intolerance, including the development of hate crime legislation.

These measures will span across policies, operational areas, law enforcement and educational measures designed to support a safe, fair and inclusive Ireland, where expressions of hatred and prejudice are not tolerated, and can be dealt with swiftly and effectively where they occur.





This is what the form looks like, this is my submission.

What will happen here is that the government will pretend to be interested in what the population has to say, and then go ahead and enact hate speech laws regardless. I don't think they give a sh1te what the plebs think.
Maybe but if we raise enough awareness and anger and get people to take part in the survey we will hopefully have enough people interested that will scare the government to enact such a hated piece of legislation.


I wonder if they would need a referendum on this because of the freedom of expression allowed in the constitution?

I believe it is entirely necessary and praiseworthy to express extreme hatred for certain politicians.
Otherwise these odious pigs can literally get away with murder.

Therefore any hate speech law to be worthwhile and just must exempt all politicians from any hate speech offence.

THats the thing, its not just race hatred but all hatred they will claim to shut down.

Any abuse of TDs will be met with Hate Speech laws, any abuse of anything or anyone could see hate speech laws being used against them.

See can some one ramp it up on twitter and facebook as well folks, this need to be spread far and wide and at mass amounts for the bastards to even get a notice on it. same craic with the migration pact, they were hounded on it and only talked briefly while dismissing Kevin Sharkey for brining it up on Pratt Coopers show. I do not use any social media folks so I am no help there.

Here's a thing.
Veronica Guerin's dirty and sick brother was convicted of possession of child porn and gets a suspended sentence.
His name, deservedly so, gets splashed all over the media and internet.

Black African bus driver gets convicted of the same dirty and sick crime and gets his job back with Dublin Bus, his name wiped off any Google search and his case is ignored by the MSM.

What the fuck is going on in Ireland?
