Our Kangaroo campaigners launch the 'No to the 30th Amendment' referendum mobile Billboards outside Leinster House on 24 October 2011. Billboards will be covering more than 1200 miles in the coming days in Dublin, Galway, Limerick and Cork.

Mary O'Rourke with campaign supporters at the launch on 21 October 2011 of the ICCL's 'No to the 30th Amendment' campaign.

Next Thursday, 27 October 2011, the people will be asked to vote on the 30th Amendment to the Constitution, which will grant more power to Oireachtas Committees.

The Irish Council for Civil Liberties Association believes that these proposals are rushed and ill-considered, and do not strike the right balance between the public interest and individual rights.

Tomorrow, 21 October 2011, together with a number of high profile academics and political figures the ICCL Association will launch the 'NO' campaign against the 30th amendment to the Constitution.

Date: Friday, 21st October 2011
Time: 12.30pm -2.30pm

Grafton Suite 1, The Westbury Hotel, Grafton Street, Dublin 2


Speakers will include:
•    Mark Kelly, Director of the Irish Council for Civil Liberties
•    Catherine Murphy TD
•    Senator Ronán Mullen
•    Mary O’Rourke, former TD, Senator and Oireachtas Committee Chair
•    Professor Gerry Whyte, Trinity College Dublin, Constitutional Law expert
•    Oisín Quinn SC
•    Donncha O’Connell, National University of Ireland Galway

Human Rights - Page 1

The ICCL plays a watchdog role by tracking the Government’s compliance with its obligations under human rights law and by ensuring that Ireland is held to account before international human rights bodies. We regularly prepare legal analyses of proposed legislation or conduct original research on pressing issues to educate the public and decision-makers on gaps in human rights protection.
