Repudiate Press Statement

Repudiate the Debt Campaign

8th May 2011


At last someone has got the space in the national media to shout stop. By the end of 2014 this state will have, what the government and all the main political parties call, a "national debt" of €240 billion. As our campaign has stated from its inception, this debt is unpayable, unjust and odious. It has been imposed undemocratically by the European Union and supported by the Fianna Fáil, Fine Gael, Labour and the Greens.

This debt is not the responsibility of the Irish people yet families, communities, small businesses, family farmers are being crippled financially to try and pay this horrendous burden imposed upon them. This is, as we have stated on numerous occasions, being imposed on the Irish people, to save the Euro and to save German and French banks. We are the sacrificial lambs on the altar of Corporate Europe.

We should not pay and we cannot pay it. We want Irish people to come along to our planned "Peoples Manifestation" on Thursday 12th May at 5-30pm outside the Dail calling for the repudiation of this debt. We will have music- songs - poetry performed by Irish artists. There will be no party political speeches. This is a peoples display of Hope and Defiance.
