Say No to the Austerity Treaty

In a statement on May 5, 2012, Republican Sinn Féin Galway County Councillor Tomás Ó Curraoin has called for a No vote in the forthcoming referendum on the Austerity Treaty:

Republican Councillor calls for No vote
'Say No to the Austerity Treaty!'

In a statement on May 5, 2012, Republican Sinn Féin Galway County Councillor Tomás Ó Curraoin has called for a No vote in the forthcoming referendum on the Austerity Treaty:

“Republican Sinn Féin are calling for a rejection of the Austerity Treaty on May 31 as we believe it represents yet another attempt to enslave the Irish people in order to prop up a failed and undemocratic EU. Since the 26-County state first joined the then EEC, Republican Sinn Féin have consistently pointed out that the true purpose of the project was the creation of an undemocratic superstate at the expense of the Irish people. In the years since these warnings have been borne out. We have seen our fishing industry decimated, thousands of families forced off the land and the end of our sugar beet industry as just part of the price to be paid.

“The referendum on the Austerity Treaty is an important part of the fight back. Already we have seen Irish people organising themselves in both rural and urban Ireland on issues such as the septic tank charge, the household charge and the right of communities to cut their own turf in defiance of an attempted EU ban.

“This referendum will give people an opportunity to send out a clear message that they still believe in the words of the 1916 Proclamation: ‘The right of the people of Ireland to the ownership of Ireland.’"
