Abolish Direct Provision

A person having no choice but to leave their country because of persecution is nothing I will ever know. These are the real stories we hear from people who have had no choice but to flee their countries, flee without their families and flee the lives they have made.

As someone who was born in Ireland and who lived in a very progressive household, will never know the trauma of being forced from a country because of persecution. The people who face this nightmare situation daily are those seeking asylum in Ireland, and as an ally, must do everything can to empower and support them. Asylum seekers and refugees are cursed to live in Direct Provision - a system that has no regard for the convention on human rights - a system that, after 20 years, continues to treat asylum seekers and refugees like animals.

About GCN

Welcome to our ninth annual Wedding Issue! In this issue, we look at the full spectrum of marriage, from proposals, to the ceremony and beyond. Four couples let us in on their wedding journey and all the planning and dreaming that goes into creating the perfect day, while long-term married pairings give the lowdown on how to keep a relationship strong. For those not into all this wedding malarkey, there’s a couple perfectly happy not to walk down the aisle. On the culture side, we have a pair of interviews with two wonderful musical acts - the iconic Indigo Girls and the thrilling Cub Sport. We discuss the cold facts that families of same-sex parents aren’t as equal as their straight counterparts, and that our family in the North still battle for the right to love. Our cover image is by the artist Joe Caslin. He speaks inside about art as activism and the power of solidarity, something that our whole community can very much agree with. The North Is Next.
