Occupy Galway Launches Voter Registration Campaign

category national | anti-capitalism | press release author Wednesday May 02, 2012 19:38author by Occupy Galway Report this post to the editors

Occupy Galway is launching a voter registration initiative ahead of the Fiscal Compact Treaty referendum on the 31st of May. Registration and Change of Address forms along with information on the treaty will be available at the camp in Eyre Square in the run up to the vote.


Occupy is launching a voter registration initiative ahead of the Fiscal Compact Treaty referendum on the 31st of May. Registration and Change of Address forms along with information on the treaty will be available at the camp in Eyre Square in the run up to the vote.

A list of those registered is available in the library and Post Office for citizens to check if or where they are registered. Deadline for registration is on the 14th of May. Forms can be filled in at the camp or alternatively at the County Council Offices on Bother Mór.

Canvassing for the referendum has begun around the city. Details of locations and timetable will be available at the camp and on the Occupy Galway website for anyone that would like to get involved with door to door leafleting . A stall will be operating on Shop Street every Saturday from 12 till 2 in the run up to the referendum. Other informative events will be organised in the coming weeks.

Occupy Galway is open every day from 10am to 10pm and holds public assemblies every evening at 7pm. We invite people to come along and partake in this grass-roots participatory democracy. For more information call by the camp or check out http://www.VoteNo.ie/ or http://www.occupygalway.org/

This vote is pivotal in Ireland’s future as the treaties will be of "binding force and permanent character". Every citizen should use their power to express their opinion on the matter.

The EU wants to set up an institution that "will enjoy immunity from every form of judicial process". The fact that the EU bureaucrats would even conceive of giving the entire control of the money supply to an institution that is above all law is reason enough to demand that the treaty be re-drafted.

We all have an obligation to be well informed and make the best decision for our fellow European citizens whom do not get to vote on this sizeable change to EU law. As such it is important that we get information from as many sources as possible.

Mayer Amschel Bauer Rothschild of the Rothschild banking empire said in 1812 if you "Give me control of a nations money supply and I care not who makes their laws". This statement is as true now as it was then. This treaty will grant the ECB and the IMF the power to decide when a nation deserves to be financially punished and take actions that cannot be legally challenged.

A lot of the brothers and sisters from Occupy dame st will take great pleasure in voting no I can tell you that. It is fabulous to see Occupy still unbowed in Galway. Lets teach the 1% a lesson and vote no to their treaty and Vote no to their Euro, which they refuse to redistribute fairly. Vote no and burn the bondholders and for a default on the unjust debt, and most of all vote no to their EU

We don't really have a Government of the Republic of Ireland anymore.

What we've now got is a Group of Lobbyists (with Executive, Legislative, and Judicial branches) who -- for years -- have been very vigorously lobbying the voters of the Republic of Ireland on behalf of the kleptocrats and despots operating out of the City of London and Wall Street: while PRETENDING to be acting on behalf of the People of the Republic of Ireland.

Plus, by way of some exquisite "window-dressing" for this fraudulent and treasonous ESM "game" -- and for the sole purpose of fooling the public, and NOT for informing them -- we can also now no doubt look forward to "referendum debate/s" very soon between the "Party Leaders": all meticulously and carefully stage managed by RTE and suchlike; and, which will be important not for the issues which are debated, but for all the crucially important ones which are slyly KEPT OUT of the debate/s: such as, for example, "derivatives gambling" by the bankers, and the "fractional-reserve lending" which continues to fraudulently add to the hundreds of trillions of Euros created "out of thin-air" to feed the ongoing "bankers gambling habit": the massive associated debts of which the 99% get saddled with.

Anyway, this seems to me to be a great and very badly needed initiative by Occupy Galway.

Hopefully, your efforts will help significantly to put a "spanner in the works" for all the tin-gods, and their arrogant lust for trying to "play God": not to mention the "Hell on Earth" results they are producing for everybody else outside their cliques.

“It’s not God that’s subjecting the people of the world to ‘Hell on Earth’; it’s the tin-gods who are trying to ‘play God’: and, making complete fools of themselves and the rest of humanity in the process.” (From: http://www.humanrightsireland.com/InjuriesBoardIreland/...l.htm)

The excerpt just below was included in an e-mail sent yesterday to some senior officials at the United Nations:

"The government should create, issue, and circulate all the currency and credit needed to satisfy the spending power of the government and the buying power of consumers. -- The privilege of creating and issuing money is not only the supreme prerogative of government, but it is the government's greatest creative opportunity. -- By the adoption of these principles... the taxpayers will be saved immense sums of interest. Money will cease to be master and become the servant of humanity." (By: Former Republic of the United States of America President Abraham Lincoln.)

Titled "An American/German inspired Irish 'Greenback' might be the answer?", the full text of yesterday's e-mail to the UN, which was copied to (among others) an international selection of senior politicians and lawyers, can be viewed at the following location:
