I’m sure all parties would agree that Limerick City and County Council should act now and announce they will do the same.” Twittercenter_img NewsPoliticsGeneral Election 2020 to be held on Saturday, February 8By Cian Reinhardt – January 14, 2020 274 This will be the first time a General Election vote will be held on a Saturday, and candidates are now facing into a four-week campaign.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up “In holding the General Election on a Saturday for the first time, I do so knowing the inconvenience to families of a polling day on a weekday during school term – time off work, lost income, increased childcare costs. I also want to make it easier for students and those working away from home to cast their votes,” Mr Varadkar said.With progress made on Brexit in the United Kingdom, the Fine Gael leader believes now is the “best time for the country” to hold a General Election.Addressing the short run-in to the polling day, he said, “Brexit is not done yet. In fact, it’s only half-time.“The next step is to negotiate a free trade agreement between the EU including Ireland and the United Kingdom that protects our jobs, our businesses, our rural communities and our economy.“The capacity to do everything else that needs to be done – health, housing, climate action, tax reform – depends on achieving this outcome. And, it has to be done by the end of the year.“There exists now a window of opportunity to hold a General Election and to have a new Government in place before the next European Council meeting in March with a strong mandate to focus on these negotiations into the summer and autumn.”The short campaign was met with some concern from opposition parties and candidates over the fact that some citizens eligible to vote may not have enough time to register.Claire Keating, the Green Party candidate for Limerick County, has called on Limerick Council to confirm that everyone who has registered to vote in the last year will be able to vote in the upcoming General Election.“After yesterday’s revelation that people who registered to vote since the last register was published might not be able to vote if the election is in early February, it’s important that Limerick Council moves quickly to end any uncertainty. Excluding new registrations would be undemocratic, and would be a total waste of Garda time if people need to go back and get new set of forms signed.” Previous articleWins for Thomond, Richmond and Abbeyfeale over the weekendNext articleLimerick Post Show | Metis Music for Mental Health Cian Reinhardthttp://www.limerickpost.ieJournalist & Digital Media Coordinator.

Provocative signs spark discussions on campus

first_img“Fag.” “Yeah, but she’s a slut anyway.” “Mexicans are lazy, though.” “Don’t Jew me.”Mollie Berg | Daily TrojanThese are just a few of the phrases that the Women’s Student Assembly, an advocacy group that falls under Program Board, included on fliers leading up to an Wednesday event intended to explore discussions of race, class and gender. The posters, which sparked conversation among some and offended others, were meant to depict insensitive language that some students face regularly.“We wanted to start a discussion around the way some people experience discrimination every day and bring awareness to that, because a lot of people hardly ever experience language that targets or offends their entire community,” said Kaya Masler, a director of WSA.The advertisements were posted around campus, though many were taken down by Monday. Neither WSA nor Program Board was responsible for removing them, Masler said, though she speculated that it was possible that individuals had removed the signs.The Division of Student Affairs oversees advertising at USC. According to the division’s regulations, as outlined in SCampus, content of printed material cannot contain “fighting words,” speech that, “considered objectively, is abusive and insulting rather than a communication of ideas.”Several students said they felt the signs encouraged discussion and a dialogue about slurs. Jennifer Joseph, a senior majoring in human performance, said that though she never saw the signs, she heard about them from a group of friends who saw them.“It gets people to talk for sure,” Joseph said. “We were all curious about what they were there for.”The event, “PLUG IN: An Interactive Workshop on Race, Class and Gender,” will run Wednesday from 7 to 9 p.m. at Ground Zero Performance Cafe. Due to scheduling, the event falls on the 12th anniversary of the attacks on 9/11, which Masler said was not intentional but a fact not lost on the event’s planners.“We’re going to do a moment of silence for the victims of 9/11 at the event, and it’s kind of about working past isolationist fears as a community and as a nation,” Masler said.Masler recognizes that not all students took kindly to the insensitive language on the flyers.“I think some people were [offended],” Masler said. “They should be. But, once again, this campaign is not intended at all to condone this language but rather to encourage people to get angry about it and respond to it.”Emily He, a sophomore majoring in biology, was one of the students who said she was turned off by the language on the signs.“It’s just uncomfortable,” He said. “I found some of the flyers a little bit offensive, so it didn’t make me interested in reading any further at what the fliers had to say.”Even some supporters of the event worry that the inclusion of sensitive language could lead to misinterpretation.“It was edgy, but I’m afraid it could be interpreted [in] the wrong way,” said Josh Fasky, a senior majoring in neuroscience. “Impact versus intent is a very fine line to navigate and should be approached carefully.”The Political Student Assembly, the Black Student Assembly, the Latino/a Student Assembly, the Queer People of Color Club and Lambda Upsilon Lambda are all co-sponsoring the event.The fliers for the Ground Zero event are not the only campaign that has attempted to draw attention to insensitive language. The LGBT Resource Center created fliers for resident advisors that list derogatory slurs and how they might hurt students. Some of these phrases include “b-tch,” “ghetto,” “whore” and “that’s so gay.”“[It’s] to put it out there that people should rethink the language they use and how certain words can affect an individual negatively and how we should think before we speak,” said Vincent Vigil, director of the LGBT Resource Center.Vigil said the fliers are part of a campaign called “Words that Hurt and Why,” which is part of the center’s Ally Project.Masler ultimately hopes that, through group workshops at the event, students will gain tools and approaches to deal with discrimination based on race, class or gender.“I don’t think the event is about political correctness as much as it is about being aware of what one another goes through and being better allies of one another’s experiences and struggles,” Masler said. “It’s not so much about policing each other as it is about helping each other be more culturally and racially sensitive.” Follow Daniel on Twitter @danielrothberglast_img read more
