A Call to Contact Your TDs on the Istanbul Convention

As pressure from feminist groups with connections to the government builds, as they attempt to get the hardline ideological document known as the Istanbul Convention signed and ratified in Ireland, we call upon our readers to contact their TDs and register their protest, send one letter, two, or more by post rather than by email and express your concerns over the following points in the Istanbul Convention, the full text of which can be found here. Many but far from all of the objectionable measures required by the Convention are covered below, and readers are encouraged to express their concerns in their own language.

It is apparent by even a brief reading of the Convention that it makes ideological misandrists society's judges, juries and executioners without ever having been elected to any kind of office. Therefore we implore those reading this in the strongest possible terms to contact your TD today and express your dissatisfaction with any efforts to sign or ratify this Convention, with reference to those parts that you object to most.

A list of TDs can be found here, with links to their contact details. Contacting them in a polite and respectful manner on facebook and twitter is also encouraged.
