The truth needs to be told how the Irish were robbed of the food that they had.

Lets not gloss over what was really happening in Ireland. This episode in Irish history needs to be known for what it really is and called for what it really was.

Just as the genocide of the Jews during WW2 is recognized, so should the genocide of the Irish people. And just as in ALL Jewish schools, the Holocaust is studied and the victims honoured and the perpetrators reviled, so should the Irish people who suffered, were expelled or forced to flee their homes and who died and the perpetrators be exposed and made to pay restitution.

Because the United States and the United Nations are about to try and do the same thing to whites across the globe!! They are trying to put all of us in one category!! And rob us all of our hairatighiratige!! Saying the Irish have white privilege !! The Irish have fought and died for everything they have in this world

An example of those in power rewriting history. In order for their to be a natural famine of such proportions, there would need to be NO vegetation growing in Ireland at all. We know that's not the case. A deliberate attempt of genocide against the Irish people who were always held in contempt by their English neighbours.

I think the reason is self explanatory.

I signed because my ancestors suffered, I have learnt so much researching my family tree and I have cried for what they went through.  The truth deserves to be known and acknowledged about what really happened to the Irish people.

The international financial cartel who re-entered Britain during the time of Cromwell are responsible for intentional mass starvations by famine all through history.

How could I not sign! I have felt that 'The Famine' sounded more like Genocide since I first read about it as a young girl.

I have to support this because both of my grandmothers were Irish-Americans. The truth of this history is my own history, that of my ancestry. I know that those who fled Eire did so with tears and anguish because of those they had lost and loves they left behind. I have to do what I can to honor those with my own Irish heart.

It was plain genocide rewritten by the murderers. Facts are the English Instituted highly racist and sectarian laws in Ireland for many year prior and during which fatally destituted the Gaelic Catholic population to the point where all their lives hung by was the survival of one cheap crop which was all they afford despite them toiling on their own stolen land to produce thousands of tons of the richest food which was subsequently exported under guard to fat Britain while those that toiled to produce it lay dying in their own country. Genocidal murderers

I signed this because the despicable behaviour and subsequent lying cover up of the British regarding this terrible crime, must be exposed, clarified and openly taught in the schools... The unnecessary deaths of millions of Irish people in this manner is an outrage... Murder by neglect. Murder by choice... Horrible.

 I couldn't agree more with you.  My heritage is Scottish and Irish and both countries suffered horribly from the brutal treatment they received from the English, about time it was brought to the attention of the world.  Even today, there are still English people who denegrate the Irish people and their descendants.
