Public meeting, Carlow
Public meeting against paying Anglo debt
STOP THE ANGLO PAYMENTS - PUBLIC MEETING
THURSDAY 1 MARCH, 7PM – 9.30PM
SEVEN OAKS HOTEL, ATHY ROAD, CARLOW
BY 2031 IRISH CITIZENS WILL HAVE REPAID €47 BILLION ON A DEBT FOR WHICH THEY HAVE NO RESPONSIBILITY.
WITH INTEREST ON BORROWINGS TO PAY THIS DEBT, THIS FIGURE WILL RISE TO OVER €1 BILLION FROM THE PEOPLE OF CARLOW ALONE.
This public meeting aims to help citizens gain a better understanding of the nature of the debt repayments to former Anglo Irish Bank / Irish Nationwide Building Society (INBS). How did we as a society end up paying these debts? What will the impact of these ongoing payments be on our communities and society at large? And most crucially, how can we, the citizens of Carlow and surrounding region, work together and with others to undo this injustice? This informal information-sharing meeting is being organised with the support of Debt Justice Action, a new civil society network which is spearheading a national campaign, ‘Anglo: Not Our Debt’, calling on the government to immediately suspend payments on Anglo/INBS debt. Dr Marie Moran of Debt Justice Action and UCD School of Social Justice will speak at the meeting. This will be followed by an open discussion.
