Labour equality event September 12, 2011Posted by Tomboktu in Inequality, Labour Party, Other Stuff, Skepticism.
Here’s an interesting little challenge. I received an email via the UCD Equal-L list about a Labour Equality event at the weekend. It’s for an panel discussion with Michael D on Friday in Dublin.
The challenge is that given how Labour has performed, I don’t particularly want to promote one of their events. However, some of the speakers on the panel are perfectly capable of laying into the party for its failures in government — in fact, one of them did lay into the government last week in the Irish Independent (here), and another has been a regular critic on her blog (here).
Oh heck. I’ll put it under the fold, so that you have to want to read it in order to see it .
And I’ll use a “skepticism” tag.
That should ease my conscience.
Labour Equality invites you to an exciting evening with some of Ireland’s leading voices in equality. Our panel will be discussing the values that the Labour Party Presidential candidate Michael D Higgins has put forward:
Inclusive Citizenship, The Creative Society, A Real Republic and Ireland in the World.
What do these values mean to the panelists?
How can these values enhance equality?
How can Ireland use these values to re-build itself?
‘VISION, MISSION, VALUES – A CONVERSATION ON EQUALITY’
Michael D Higgins with :
Suzy Byrne, Niall Crowley, Robin Hanan, Alice Leahy, Eric Yao, Katherine Zappone
