Dear Mr Holt,
 
Some days ago I was handed a copy of your recent article in The Irish Times Weekend Review (Saturday, January 7th 2006) on the now-opened "SuperDump" in Kilconnell (County Galway), which is located near my home.
 
Though I feel your article is in many respects extremely good, I am nonetheless very concerned by the fact that it contains no mention at all of the United Nations Aarhus Convention Agreement which the Republic of Ireland signed in 1998.
 
As you may not be aware of the extremely important link - the BROKEN link that is - between the Kilconnell superdump, and the United Nations Aarhus Convention Agreement, I would be very grateful if you could please take note of the contents of the January 15th 2006 Indymedia Newswire publication I have reproduced below - which attempts to briefly explain the important "broken link" in question, together with some of the extremely negative and worrying social consequences closely associated with it.
 
I also hope that your many other colleagues in the media who this e-mail is being copied to will note the contents of the Indymedia Newswire publication reproduced below as well.
 
You, and your other media colleagues, may wish to note too that as a direct result of this huge Greenstar / National Toll Roads rubbish dump project, I have so far spent a total of around 21 months living in forced exile (away from my home in County Galway), in order to avoid being corruptly criminalised in connection with my efforts to challenge the legality of the Kilconnell SuperDump; and, that in spite of the very best efforts of myself, Mr Gerard Madden (Senior Social Worker, Omagh, Northern Ireland), and my GP (Dr Michael McCavert), I remain unable to find a lawyer who is willing to help me prepare my legal defence in connection with the criminal offence I was charged with in 2002: which, as you may already know, is a very straightforward and blatant violation of Article 6 of The European Convention on Human Rights Act 2003 (Republic of Ireland).
 
In addition, the very severe and prolonged mental torture I am being subjected to as a consequence of being deliberately deprived of my legal rights under the European Convention of Human Rights - for no good reason whatsoever that I know of - means that The Criminal Justice (United Nations Convention Against Torture) Act, 2000 (Republic of Ireland) is also being blatantly violated in my case: all with the full knowledge (and approval apparently) of Minister for Justice Michael McDowell TD, and Northern Ireland Criminal Justice Minister David Hanson MP.  (Full details of the letters from Mr Madden and Dr McCavert sent to Minister McDowell TD and Minister Hanson MP can be found in the list provided at http://www.constitutionofireland.com/ .)
 
For future reference purposes, a copy of this e-mail will be placed at the following address later today:
http://www.constitutionofireland.com/EddieHoltIrishTimesJournalist17January2006/Email.htm 

Translations facilities will be made available at the above address.
 
Yours sincerely,

Difference between signing and ratifying a convention
by W. Finnerty Sunday, Jan 15 2006, 1:08pm 
   
The Amnesty International text below has been taken from their page at:
http://www.amnesty.org.uk/torture/cat.shtml 
   
=========================================
   
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN SIGNING AND RATIFYING A CONVENTION?
  
 
If a state (country) has signed a convention or treaty, it has declared that it agrees with the principles included in the convention or treaty and that it will not do anything to undermine it.
   
If a state (country) has ratified a convention or treaty, it has also agreed to be legally bound by that convention. From then on it is known as "a state party to that convention".
   
(Amnesty International)
   
=========================================
   
With the United Nations international Aarhus Convention Agreement in mind, which the Republic of Ireland SIGNED on 25 June 1998, but never ratified (see http://www.unece.org/env/pp/ctreaty.htm for details), where does all this leave the Republic of Ireland Government in regard to the National Toll Roads / Greenstar SuperDump at Kilconnell (in County Galway)? - and a whole string of other environmental issues including, for example, alterations (i.e. "Amendments") made to the Waste Management Act and the National Monuments Act since June 25th 1998 ?
   
Background information on the planning permission basics for the Kilconnell rubbish dump, which not only undermined the international Aarhus Convention Agreement, but made smithereens out of it as well, thanks to all the extremely tight cooperation between Local and Central Government, National Toll Roads, the Legal Profession, the so called "Opposition Parties", and the "Traditional Media", have been outlined at the following address:
http://www.annmariekelly.org/LegalAidApplication/3November2004.htm 
   
The basics of the international Aarhus Convention Agreement (part of "United Nations Agenda 21" or "21st Century Agenda") can be seen at:
http://www.finnachta.com/TheAarhusConvention.htm
   
It's small wonder that so many are doing so much for so long to keep the general public in the dark regarding Ireland's signing of the Aarhus Convention Agreement in 1998? - which, amazingly, has still to "be laid before Dail Eireann" - as required by Article 29.5.1 of Bunreacht na hEireann (the Constitution of Ireland). Almost 8 years on, and there is still no sign at all of any stir in that direction ???
   
Display absolute and total contempt for the undertakings involved in the signing of the United Nations Aarhus Convention Agreement (after billions of EU subsidy money has been secured/conned as a result of signing up for it), violate the Constitution of Ireland, alter the law in ways which are repugnant to the Constitution, betray the State, betray the citizens of the State, betray themselves: all "for a few dollars more" - and another very cosy term in office? - "serving the public" of course.

"The NDP is the largest and most ambitious investment plan ever drawn up for Ireland. It involves an investment of over  EUR 52 billion  of Public, Private and EU funds (in 1999 prices) over the period 2000-2006. The Plan involves significant investment in health services, social housing, education, roads, public transport, rural development, industry, water and waste services, childcare and local development."
