Dáil Motion To Defend Neutrality And Tripple Lock

People Before Profit Dublin MEP candidate Bríd Smith TD to introduce motion calling for Government to back-off the triple lock, commit to a referendum on neutrality, and end use of Shannon airport by the US military.

On Wednesday morning, People Before Profit Dublin MEP candidate Bríd Smith TD will introduce a People Before Profit Motion re Neutrality and the Triple Lock in the Dáil.

The motion will call on the Government to;

  • withdraw plans for legislation to end the triple lock.
  • commit to a referendum on enshrining neutrality in the Constitution.
  • end the use of Shannon airport by the US military.
  •  

Since 2022 we have seen the Government accelerate efforts to undermine neutrality in a concerted campaign to engage the State even further in the EU militarisation project and move us ever closer to NATO.

They have no mandate for what they are doing, but that hasn’t stopped their fundamentally undemocratic campaign to push us closer to a military alliance and EU militarisation project. This project includes the very countries that are arming the genocide in Gaza. But despite the Government’s efforts, a large majority of the public continues to support neutrality.

There is a terrifying rush to war in progress. Europe increased military spending in 2023 to €552 billion, and NATO countries increased military spending to $1.34 trillion. NATO accounts for 55% of global military spending, far out-spending any other nation or bloc in the world. This military spending means vast numbers of badly needed homes, schools and hospitals are lost to fund warfare. We need homes, not bombs; and we need healthcare, not warfare.

The triple lock is the legal provision that prevents the Government from sending ordinary Irish soldiers to go, fight and die in a war for oil and profit in the Middle East or elsewhere on behalf of US and Western imperialism.

Prevented by the triple lock from participating in the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, Fianna Fáil instead allowed Shannon to become a forward operating base for the US military. As a result, more than 3 million troops have passed through Shannon over the past 21 years.

If the triple lock is removed, then we will inevitably see Ireland’s participation in EU-led missions without UN approval, and US or NATO-led missions such as the predatory wars in Iraq and Afghanistan”.

It is to stop this rush to militarisation, and the wars that militarisation inevitably brings, that I will introduce People Before Profit’s Private Members Business motion for debate in the Dáil from 10am to 12 noon on Wednesday. The motion will be voted on by TDs in the Dáil on Wednesday evening”.
