Difference between signing and ratifying a convention
by W. Finnerty Sunday, Jan 15 2006, 1:08pm 
  
The Amnesty International text below has been taken from their page at:
http://www.amnesty.org.uk/torture/cat.shtml 
  
=========================================
  
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN SIGNING AND RATIFYING A CONVENTION?
 
 
If a state (country) has signed a convention or treaty, it has declared that it agrees with the principles included in the convention or treaty and that it will not do anything to undermine it.
  
If a state (country) has ratified a convention or treaty, it has also agreed to be legally bound by that convention. From then on it is known as "a state party to that convention".
  
(Amnesty International)
  
=========================================
  
With the United Nations international Aarhus Convention Agreement in mind, which the Republic of Ireland SIGNED on 25 June 1998, but never ratified (see http://www.unece.org/env/pp/ctreaty.htm for details), where does all this leave the Republic of Ireland Government in regard to the National Toll Roads / Greenstar SuperDump at Kilconnell (in County Galway)? - and a whole string of other environmental issues including, for example, alterations (i.e. "Amendments") made to the Waste Management Act and the National Monuments Act since June 25th 1998 ?
  
Background information on the planning permission basics for the Kilconnell rubbish dump, which not only undermined the international Aarhus Convention Agreement, but made smithereens out of it as well, thanks to all the extremely tight cooperation between Local and Central Government, National Toll Roads, the Legal Profession, the so called "Opposition Parties", and the "Traditional Media", have been outlined at the following address:
http://www.annmariekelly.org/LegalAidApplication/3November2004.htm 
  
The basics of the international Aarhus Convention Agreement (part of "United Nations Agenda 21" or "21st Century Agenda") can be seen at:
http://www.finnachta.com/TheAarhusConvention.htm
  
It's small wonder that so many are doing so much for so long to keep the general public in the dark regarding Ireland's signing of the Aarhus Convention Agreement in 1998? - which, amazingly, has still to "be laid before Dail Eireann" - as required by Article 29.5.1 of Bunreacht na hEireann (the Constitution of Ireland). Almost 8 years on, and there is still no sign at all of any stir in that direction ???
  
Display absolute and total contempt for the undertakings involved in the signing of the United Nations Aarhus Convention Agreement (after billions of EU subsidy money has been secured/conned as a result of signing up for it), violate the Constitution of Ireland, alter the law in ways which are repugnant to the Constitution, betray the State, betray the citizens of the State, betray themselves: all "for a few dollars more" - and another very cosy term in office? - "serving the public" of course.
