To The People of Ireland
We, the people of Ireland, have grown a Republic which continues to grow and develop through democracy. We say no to violence as a way of solving problems, and carefully keep safe the right of every adult citizen to vote, and to have their say in how our country moves forward.
We declare the right of the people of Ireland to the ownership of Ireland, and the responsibility of our government to make sure that every Irish citizen is treated equally and fairly, and given the same chance for happiness, health and prosperity. We promise every citizen these same rights, no matter what their wealth, gender, religion, or culture. It is the duty or our Government to make sure that these rights are put before all else.
In order to make sure our citizens can be happy and well, they must be promised the following basic rights:
People should have the right to housing. Rents should be fair and reasonable, and all houses should be safe and fit to live in.
People should have the right to have access to basic living resources.
People should have the right to live in a clean country. The government should make sure that the environment is clean and healthy.
People should have the right to go to school in their area, no matter what their religion.
People should have the right to see a doctor or go to hospital if they are sick, no matter how much money they have. People come before money.
People should have the right to feel strong and safe, with enough Gardaí to keep our towns, cities and countryside protected.
With these rights come responsibilities. We declare it the responsibility of every Irish citizen to treat our country and each other with honour and dignity. May we all uphold what is right, campaign democratically against what is wrong, and remember the responsibility of every citizen to use the vote that so many of our ancestore fought to give us.
