Reinstate 48 Ireland

reinstate48

Reinstate 48’s sole objective is to restore to the people of Ireland the democratic rights given to them under Article 48 of the 1922 Constitution of the Irish Free State to make, mould, amend and repeal their own laws.

Article 48

Article 48 of the 1922 Constitution provided for the “Initiation by the people of proposals for laws or constitutional amendments”. Article 48 was removed from the Constitution of the Irish Free State in 1928 by the government of the day without the consent of the Irish people. (Watch the History of Article 48 video here)

The power of people to make their own laws is also known as “Direct Democracy”. It’s the democratic system that has been in place in Switzerland for over 150 years and it places the people as the supreme rulers of the state.
