Ireland is Not For Sale- Protest at IMF/ECB Bailout
Ireland is Not For Sale - Protest at IMF/ECB Bailout
Sinn Féin Councillor Chris O’Leary has announced details of a vigil to be held at 6pm this evening at the National Monument on the Grand Parade to protest against the IMF/ECB bailout.
Councillor O’Leary said his party is mobilising today in protest in towns and villages across Ireland in opposition to a bailout that will further indebt the Irish people. He described yesterday as a dark today for Ireland, when the country’s sovereignty was put in pawn to bail out the banks and international bondholders. Describing last night’s hastily arranged press conference by Brian Cowen and Brian Lenihan as a farce that was without figures, without facts, without resignations and without shame, he called on the Taoiseach to do the decent thing and resign.
Cllr O’Leary concluded by encouraging as many people as possible to join a series of events which Sinn Féin is organising to protest against the bailout. As well as a candlelight vigil at the National Monument at 6pm, the party is to protest outside the GPO at 1pm today.
