PLEASE SIGN OUR OUR ON LINE PETITION
This petition we set up 07/January/2014 seeks your support for a campaign to remove the word famine
* Persuade relevant authors, editors and website content providers to stop using the word ‘Famine’ for what took place in Ireland between 1845 and 1850, and start using terms such as, "The Great Hunger" or 'An tOcras Mór'
Every name added to this petition will make even stronger the case for using terms such as the Great Hunger – terms which admit, instead of denying, the truth of what took place. Only when the word ‘Famine’ has been abandoned will future generations describe what took place for what it truly was, failure of government and continued questioning as to the real motive for the neglect of millions. Was it genocide? many think it was. If so, stop describing it as famine.
This petition has been launched by a Facebook group, Irish Holocaust - Not Famine. The Push to educate in Facts. https://www.facebook.com/irishgenocide
