PostSubject: Is there hope for Tara?   Sat Jun 07, 2008 10:19 am

The destruction of the environment at Tara is possibly the most iconic example of the atrocious ignorance that Fianna Fail are capable of. No matter how you look it this has got to be one of the most shameful points in the party's history - culturally speaking.

An article has been posted on Indymedia which announces that the fate of Tara is to be considered at the forthcoming World Archaeological Congress taking place at UCD this month. Is there any possibility that some more enlightened thinking will be brought to bear on this disgusting crime against our heritage?

A few things... Agenda 21 must invite/obliges (?) stakeholders incl. media outlets (my italics below) to participate ultimately in political decisions taken with regards to the environment?

The 6th World Archaeological Congress meeting (WAC-6) can have an input/influence the decision if enough interest is received through Indymedia or whatever media outlet or other stakeholder?

This is from the link you provided
Quote :
This news feature is designed to share that news, and serve as a public consultation, under the laws principles and principles of Agenda 21, and sustainable development, which all public bodies, NGOs and stakeholders in the envionmental arena (including media outlets) are required to follow. Everyone has a stake in this issue, and a right to have their opinions heard. National surveys have shown that 70% of people want the M3 re-routed and an Irish Times survey showed that 82% of people surveyed think Tara should be a UNESCO site. Minister Gormley has responded that he will declare Tara a World Heritage Site, but with the motorway through it. We are campaigning to have YNESCO dcline that offer, and insist that the M3 is re-routed first.

Quote :
The shortage of time in this matter is not our doing. We only received notice yesterday, that this issue would be raised and that we hold stakeholder status. Submissions need to be submitted in time for all the participants in the round table to have time to read and understand them - which is a week before the event, at a minimum. So, we are setting June 21, the Summer Solstice, as our date of submission. In order for us to process third party submissions, and integrate them into our own, we need to receive them at week before then, which brings us back to the 14th of June. So, we have a week to hear from as many people as possible.

No. But I'll send my submission anyway.
