Children should be seen and heard - Vote Yes for children

Posted on October 23, 2012 at 02:30 PM

Today we launched our video for the Labour campaign calling for a Yes vote in the forthcoming Children's Referendum on Saturday on November 10th.

Speaking at the launch, Tánaiste Eamon Gilmore said: "This referendum gives us the opportunity to show children that we treat all children equally and that we cherish children and childhood".

The video starred six year old Ella Hendron Kilcommons, who said the referendum gives: "Big people the opportunity to vote for little people who do not have a voice".

The referendum will strengthen the protection of children in the Constitution, putting their safety and welfare at the centre of decision making.

Do take the time to check the video out.
