The right to work Campaign (3)

Protesters at Anglo Irish Bank

 


It appears the four people on ledger were arrested as well as two or three people who had been outside. All this took place in the space of ten minutes. Inspector Gannon who led the assault on Shell to Sea campaigners at Polthomas pier in Rossport was spotted among the Gardai and witnesses reported they had the clear impression that the Gardai were acting under orders that no further protests against the bank bailouts were to be tolerated.

Up to 100 Gardai are now around Anglo Irish bank with a second protest having being called by eirigi for 14.00 today. It has been confirmed that this protest will still be going ahead as will Tuesdays protest at the Dail.

We would call on people to join the anti-capitalist block at 19.00 at the Wolfe Tone statue on Tuesday (opposite Shelbourne Hotel) where we will discuss how to best respond to the attacks on bank bailout protests before proceeding to the Dail.

Help get the FF & Green gangsters out of the Dail

I missed this demonstration because I was not aware that is was taking place but you can be sure I will be there for the next one on Tuesday the 18th of May .I am not sure of the time but I think it will be 17.00 hrs at Parnell square anyone that wants to get rid of this un-elected government and bring about a new elected government with a new mandate should support these protests

we need reform now!

The current Irish Government are responsible for the financial disaster the country is in,
With the establishment of NAMA the Government is trying to socialize the enormous losses that the Banks and their Developer buddies have encored.
Corruption is rife and now a new monster burocratic system is being created, where X politicians will have jobs for life and the same corrupt developers will be able to manipulate the housing market all over again
While the people are being robbed of their homes, savings, pensions, and education for their children, that same gangsters are running the country
This has to stop!
Join the CAB to-day and get things moving
Come on! Get active in your own area now!
We as a country need new faces and not the same old tired faces that have being around using the system to suite themselves.

Let the people have their say!

“Deep divisions” are opening up in Irish society and attempts are being made to drive a wedge between public sector and private sector workers, Eamon Gilmore told the annual conference of Labour Youth in the Mansion House Dublin last night.

He said Friday’s huge turnout of both public and private sector workers at the Irish Congress of Trade Union’s (Ictu) national day of protest showed “workers are not going to lie down and meekly accept being singled out by Fianna Fáil and the Greens”.

“The Government is saying that the €4billion that needs to be found in this budget must be achieved by targeting those on social welfare; those who work in the public service; and those who are dependent on public services.

Mr Gilmore, it surprises me to think that you did not anticipated this strategy from the Government and its media cronies, but what is more surprising is that you stated on TV last week to David Williams that if NAMA was passed you in a future Government would not change anything with NAMA

This has to be the shock of the year for me and thousands of others that thought you could be the obvious choice to replace Brian Cowen!

It is now not as clear to me if I should vote for Labour.

In light of this revelation, I call upon you now to demand an immediate General election.

You can stop NAMA from ever happening then,

(That is if you are really determent to stop it)

We the people have the right to vote on this ourselves don’t you think?
