7 Day History
We were shocked to see Amnesty Ireland post about the plight of women in Saudi this morning, after they called for the disenfranchisement of women and same sex attracted people in Ireland, for the crime of holding a dissenting opinion.
They are weaponising the suffering of Saudi women against fminists and lgb groups in Ireland, to shame us into silence, to imply we lack a sense of proportion. It is a move unbecoming of Amnesty, an organisation with a proud history. #WeWillBeHeard #ireadtheletter
This is what I am saying ... when an organisation with the influence and reach of @amnesty signs a letter advocating the denial of legitimate representation to people whose views are based on conscience it has a chilling affect on society.
Iseult is speaking sense here in a sea of wilful ignorance. You cannot refuse political representation to one group, monster and vilify them, while claiming to be civil rights orgs and upholding democracy. And @amnesty of all orgs putting their name to this!
Nassima al-Sadah campaigns for the political participation of women... the very thing you are campaigning against in Ireland. @Amnesty You can't have it both ways. #WeWillBeHeard @TCDFFT @Ire_LGBAlliance
