Pre-Budget Demonstration - SOLIDARITY and RESISTANCE

Assembling at 1 pm on Saturday 12th October at the Garden of Remembrance, Parnell Square, Dublin, to march to the GPO.

The budget for 2014 is expected to take yet another €3 billion out of the economy, at a rate of two to one in favour of cuts over taxation. This will affect health, education, social protection and community services. It will not create one new job.

Alternative sources of revenue exist:

The budget for 2014 is expected to take yet another €3 billion out of the economy, at a rate of two to one in favour of cuts over taxation. This will affect health, education, social protection and community services. It will not create one new job.

Alternative sources of revenue exist:

Remove the tax loopholes and ensure the multinationals pay corporation tax in full
Impose a special tax rate on salaries over €100,000.
Identify and tax all off shore accounts.
Use the financial relief of the promissory note deal.

The government have promised large scale job creation schemes but little has been done. Thousands are burdened with insurmountable debts on their homes and the threat of eviction hovers over many. Against this background we are organising a pre-budget demonstration assembling at 1 pm on Saturday 12th October at the Garden of Remembrance, Parnell Square, Dublin, to march to the GPO.

We urge all trade union bodies and campaigning organisations to march with their banners and to inform and mobilise their members to take part in this event.

Such a show of solidarity will register the historic centenary footprint of 1913.
