I've moved my target for signatures out to 5000 since the target of 1000 has been reached and passed! I found this link on the internet also which is great http://www.thejournal.ie/oireachtas-panel-findings-593539-Sep2012/.
well done Annemarie!!
Thanks Margaret - I'm going to keep this going and before Xmas go up to Dublin and hand them all these signatures and these comments...have to do something they can't keep getting away with treating us like dirt!
Signed to this a few days ago and like you will keep sharing and posting Annemarie.
Well done! Looks like you will have 5k by tomorrow.
they would be better off going after the people living abroad using an Irish address & not giving one cent of their money here..
ursela i totally agree!!!
Tanx Helen it's so annoying the amount of people using their parent's addresses that don't live here & the Non-Nationals that never gave one cent here entitled to it without any questions & us having to nearly beg for it ALL WRONG I think anyway
please god the government make the right decision for our children and not for their greed!!
OUR Children don't count Helen they are the one's that will suffer b4 this petition I've sent umpteen letters about the amount of Bogus people claiming child benefit & they didn't do a thing to rectify it but I assure you us REAL parent's in our own country will be the 1st people they hit with this fiasco..Time to look abroad first thats their answer
i agree with you too,hoe many people that dont live here but claim this money,find them and stop it
5% of Irish citizens have 135 billion euro in Irish banks and pay no tax what ever to the Irish state, because they have moved there business abroad and only live in Ireland part of the year to avoid paying taxes. These are the people that sit down with our government and advise them on how to run our country.Our politicians are sycophants to these 5% rich and powerful tax dodgers .
Dead right Jeremiah & the brains behind all this scam is allowing this elusive tax band like loads of authors & musicians here live SCOT FREE & yet all their money is located abroad..Time I either start writing crap like some of them or Sing like crap like the others I will be very very rich indeed..This country is full of artists..YUP SCAM ARTISTS
well with respect I'm well aware we are all born somewhere BUT ur missing the point it's about thousands of Bogus people using Irish addresses & DO NOT live here yet are claiming C.A. nothing to do with other countries or employment abroad thats not my point..I know people using their parents addresses to claim maybe US Irish are sick of being grateful to the un-grateful!!
IMHO the problem isn't people abroad claiming it. Its billionaire bondholders that wrecked the economy and their servants in the Dail. Their are of course a few billionaires who also don't actually live abroad but claim to and avoid tax. If we buy into that red herring put out by the government and the media (most of which is owned by those billionaires) then we only allow them to divide and rule when ordinary working people and the poor need to stand in solidarity no matter where they were born.
Enda Kenny just came out there and said, when asked about cutting the child benefit 'we don't have money to throw around' and said we shouldn't forget that this country is in financial dire straits.....what the hell does that have to do with the children of this country? and seriously 'throw around' think more along the lines of helping to feed/clothe/school our kids since your ensuring that while wages are stagnant everything else is going up! cloud cuckoo land he lives in I'm sure of it! ;(
Thanks Marie, just looking into how I'm going to get all these signatures up to that crowd up in dublin...if I could manage it all I'd like to hand it in personally...they need to know how angry and frightened people really are...they don't seem to have a clue!
he had 18.1 Billion to throw at Bond Holders this year alone
I know Paul its a disgrace, shameful.....picking on the vulnerable in Society seems to be this Governments main agenda.....keep sharing, inviting friends to sign as I will be presenting this petition to those that need to know the real truth!
do they even care how angry and frightened people are ???
they threw the money around,now expect us to suffer,its no better than an alcoholic father drinking the families money then beating them when theres no dinner!!!
Well we can either moan and groan and do nothing or do something, anything to show them how we feel.....I don't know if it will change anything but I'm not sitting back and doing nothing anymore...
Why not hand them in at the protest against the budget,
Gov Have Money For AIB And There Own Huge Wages . Top People Bleeding This Country Snow White,
they shit on us the people because they can get away with it

HI there, I'll be on local radio tomorrow discussing child benefit, lets try and get those few extra signatures to bring the total to 28,000, this petition will be presented to Joan's crew in Social protection if not to Joan herself (hopefully) so please keep sharing and getting people to join in and try and stop the Government from cutting child benefit and tearing families apart. Thank you, Annemarie.

please sign might do us any good but can do us any harm to try
can't do us any harm even
ya didnt help last yr but i signed
would be good idea to organise buses from each county to go to Dublin the same day...will spread the word...
have just posted details on my facebook page..awaiting response...
thankis for that Collette and make sure the click that they are coming to the event. More people will spur more people
yet again attacking the most vunerable in society...it's time we took action..i've had enough and am sure everyone that has signed this has too....
I emailed numerous Ministers about this petition and not one of them replied....I even sent Joan Burton a copy of the signatures....nothing...the only person who replied was David Norris and pledged his support...sickening it is....
goes to show Annemarie that they don't care what people of Ireland think but when they want a vote it is a different story!!
fair play to david norris...he has manners to reply...
We shud march outside the dail so we can b heard at least we can say we tried cz if we do nothing we cant complain. Im in if anyone else wants to just organise a day tat suits everyone. It worked when people marched outside for the snas :/
Yes Aoife a lot of people are suggesting that its definitely something I would like to do...we could bring the petition with us on the day...
Yes I wud definitely am always looking for a march to join. U need someone wit loads friends all over start spreading xxx
Only a few people have liked this status girls taught more wud but the budget will b here in no time and nothing will b done about it and everyone will still b giving out :/
i think they should cut the ones that are married
Kim no offence but being married dosn't necessarily mean that you are automatically better off...I'm married, but I was once a single Mother and I understand fully the plight of single Mothers but I can assure you now that I'm married it dosn't mean that I'm much better off especially in the current climate.....means test by all means there are married couples out there making huge sums a year that don't need the child benefit but I can assure you I'm not one of them and neither are the majority of people I know in a relationship or married!
No Kim I think it should be mean test.. So the people who don't need it or collect it every month and put it into saving.. Shouldn't have it.. And leave the people that need it alone... A.K.A.. me and you...
ok i hear what use are saying and i get ur point so i agree with what use r saying
