People's Movement Protest

Dear Colleagues,

We are about to suffer the most draconian budget in the history of the Irish state; a budget largely dictated from Brussels, the objective of which is supported by the three main political parties in the state, the only difference being the possible nature of the cuts.

The People’s Movement pre - budget protest will be on December 6th – the day before the budget. Opposition to the current developments is growing by the day and now influential commentators are beginning to write about the responsibility of the EU/Euro for the Irish crisis. Our demonstration – which will be proceeded by a press conference, will seek to highlight this role and the fact that we have completely lost our independence to a troika of EU/ECB/IMF accountants.

The punitive interest rate of 5.8 per cent will inflict enormous hardship on the Irish people but particularly on the old, the sick and the vulnerable. There is only one solution and that is to default on this enormous debt which is not of our making. The outcome is a clear indication that the Irish political elite put up little if any resistance to the demands imposed by our so called “partners” in the European Union.

Our protest will commence at the EU Commission Offices in Molesworth St at 1:00 on Monday December 6th and proceed to the Dail. It is hoped that those participating will wear black for the occasion. The plan is for Merkel and Sarkozy accompanied by their minions to carry the ‘Irish Budget’ from the EU Commission Offices to the Dail.

We are now asking you to make every effort to be there at lunchtime on the 6th. Drop a line to if you are sure that you can make it. If you have any ideas that might add more interest to the protest, please include them – nothing incendiary!!!!

The demonstration will last around 40 minutes. Please alert anybody you think might be interested in joining us.
