One win. One Fight. One Favour.

One win ...
Last week we asked you to contact your TDs to ask them to support the Bill to divest state funds from fossil fuels. Yesterday the Dáil voted 90 votes to 53 to progress the Fossil Fuel Divestment Bill to the next stage. This is a real victory for people power given the Government steadfastly opposed the Bill and Fianna Fáil were on the fence right up to decision time.
Read our press release reacting to the historic vote: "This is first real sign of leadership from Ireland on climate action".
One fight ...
Before Christmas the Dáil sent a Bill to ban fracking to Committee Stage. But now supporters of fracking are trying to bog it down in endless discussion. In just 3 days our petition to pass the Bill without delay has reached 1,500. Help us get it over 2,000.
If you haven't signed the petition yet, it'll take less than a minute .
Please share the petition on Facebook. Every signature counts.

One favour ...
Our campaigning work depends on you. Your support makes it possible. Your participation makes in powerful.
Anything you donate will really help us keep at it until the fracking ban and divestment are the law of the land.
The tide of history is with us, even though at times politicians, officials and vested interests are swimming against it.
Together we will win.
Oisín Coghlan, Director
P.S. The public consultation on the Bill to ban fracking closes in less than a week. We can't let it be delayed by faint-hearted TDs. Give them the courage to lead. Let's make the petition the largest we've ever had. Please do sign it and share it now.
