Thoughts with Anna: NI Fracking Hypocrisy

Why is talking about fracking in Northern Ireland overdue? It's already banned in Scotland and Ireland, and halted with a moratorium in England and Wales. But not here. Here, its being considered in 2 sites. Photo by François Dvorak The hypocrisy of Stormont is staggering. In February 2020 they voted to declare a climate emergency … Continue reading Thoughts with Anna: NI Fracking Hypocrisy

Poem 07

Metallic yellow tattooed across the skyline, Concealing old conflict from tourist's prying eyes. Tales of giants and leprechauns, Tales of kneecapping and pipe bombs. Pretty art made for Instagrammers to post, Reminders of hardship and loss for most.

Thoughts With Anna: Vote This CAP Down

Tomorrow will be the final vote on the CAP. We, the youth, are watching every move the European Parliament make as our environmental destruction will impact the rest of the world.
