Dublin Says No…We are the ordinary people of Ireland. We have taken it upon ourselves to march weekly in unity with many other communities across the country, in order to show the Government of Ireland that we ‘The People’ will resist.
We will resist the imposition of this water tax/charg…e (this will be a second charge for water as we already pay for it through taxes) and we will resist the installation of water meters.
We will resist Austerity.
We will resist Bank Bail-Outs.
We will resist Natural Resources sell-Offs.
We will resist Media Bias.
We will resist Government & Banking Corruption, Incompetence, Nepotism, Greed, Lies, Miss-Management, Political Elitism.
We want a better future for ourselves, our children, grandchildren…
We want a new political system – by the people, for the people.
We encourage anyone and everyone, no matter what your own political views are, to join us.
We each have our own political views and we each have our own visions of what the future Ireland should look like.
What we all do have in common is the fact that we want ‘change’, a change that will benefit all of us.
All we ask is that NO political banners/flags etc are carried – this is a ‘Peoples’ march.
We meet at The Central Bank, Dame St, Dublin at 12:00…each and every Sunday. Please join us.
