People and Republic

My name is Oliver Moran. I’m a 39 year old software engineer and activist. I believe we need a radical re-discovery of politics, society and economics:

  • Government that is “open by default” and more participatory
  • Empowered communities based on respect and solidarity
  • An economy that has learned the difference between price and value

In the 2016 general election, I will be the Green Party candidate for Cork North Central.

“Since 2010, I’ve been one of Ireland’s leading activists for political reform.”

Who we are

Why the Green Party?

I joined the Green Party in 2009 because I believe in green politics. My values are the green values of honesty, social justice, civil liberties, internationalism, and long-term thinking.

I believe that Ireland still needs a Green Party. The crisis has left a hole in the centre left. Other parties have coalesced around a right-wing orthodoxy – or lurched to a popular left reactionism. It’s time again to rediscover a green centre left.

What we need

We have to imagine Ireland differently, built on fairness and participation

A fair economy

With the needs of society first, the rewards of our economy will be shared more fairly.

A citizen republic

A genuine republic, where the affairs of state are public, not the preserve of a few.

Community services

Empower local people to deliver services more effectively and watch communities bloom.

Vision for Europe

We need a balance between an overly-powerful Brussels and the Euro-skepticism it provokes.

How to do it

A radical vision for Ireland

  • Guaranteed basic income

    A radical reform of our welfare system that encourages work and guarantees income.

  • Universal healthcare

    A single-tier health system funded entirely through general taxation.

  • Repeal the eighth

    Legislate for the dignified treatment of women, families and the unborn.

  • Citizen-initiated referendums

    Empower citizens to challenge poor legislation and bring forward new ideas.

  • The right to housing

    Rebalance the constitution so that the rights of tenants don’t take second place to profit.

  • Vacant property tax

    Tax property owners who keep houses empty and speculators who hoard land.
