Właściciele domów trafili na siódmą podwyżkę kredytów hipotecznych od lipca ubiegłego roku

Setki tysięcy rodzin zostało w tym tygodniu dotkniętych siódmą podwyżką kredytów hipotecznych od lipca ubiegłego roku. Jednak przywódca Fianna Fáil ponownie odrzucił plan Sinn Féin dotyczący ograniczonej w czasie ulgi hipotecznej i wykluczył wsparcie rządowe dla tych rodzin. 

Welcome to The Weekly Digest from Sinn Féin where we bring you a flavour of the work and campaigns that we have been involved in during the course of the week.

Fáilte go hIris Choimriúcháin na Seachtaine ag Sinn Féin ina gcuirfear ar bhur súil blaiseadh den obair agus de na feachtais a bhfuilimid ag plé leo le linn na seachtaine.

Families, workers and businesses want an executive up and running

Conor Murphy MLA and John Finucane MP were in North Belfast this week listening to families, workers, and businesses.

They want an Executive up and running to support people with the rising cost of living, to fix our health service, and build a better future for all communities.

On Thursday 18th May, voters can send a clear message, by electing hardworking Sinn Féin councillors who will prioritise the issues that matter to you.

Health service is creaking at the seams

Speaking in the Dáil this week Mary Lou McDonald asked how bad the health service has to get before the government gets its act together.  She said the health service is creaking at the seams with overcrowded hospitals, hundreds of patients on trolleys, patient safety at risk and three quarters of nurses have considered leaving their job.

Homeowners hit with 7th Mortgage hike since last July

Hundreds of thousands of families were this week hit with their seventh mortgage hike since last July. However, the Fianna Fáil Leader again knocked back Sinn Féin’s plan for time limited mortgage relief and ruled out government support for these families. 

Speaking in the Dáil Pearse Doherty said we won’t let this go. We will keep fighting for homeowners under huge pressure from rip-off mortgage interest hikes.

Sign the petition to ban supertrawlers from fishing in Irish Waters

Padraig Mac Lochlainn has launched a petition to ban supertrawlers from fishing in Irish Waters.

In recent days, a number of the largest super trawlers in the world have been fishing again in the Irish Exclusive Economic Zone. These monster vessels are multiples of the average-sized fishing trawler.

They are capable of catching vast amounts of fish on each trip and there are profound concerns about their impact on the marine ecosystem.

Super trawlers of this size are banned from fishing in Australian waters.

We are calling on the Taoiseach and the Irish government to campaign for super trawlers to be banned from fishing in Irish waters and all European waters under the jurisdiction of the Common Fisheries Policy.
