Dochas Women’s Prison
(posted 25 Feb 2014)
I am overwhelmed with your support and amazed with your energy, it is hard work when the State incarcerates women who are doing the work that the Irish State should be doing. Protecting our neutrality, bringing justice, affirming its devotion to the ideal of peace and friendly co-operation amongst nations founded on International justice and morality. In other words your succinct slogan Caring not killing.
The Scottish Kinship Care Alliance is opposing a bill which will reduce government support for kinship carers. You don’t have to be in Scotland to sign their petition (see below).
The Bill is being debated again on 19 February so it is urgent to sign it now.
