Disarm the Markets

category dublin | miscellaneous | event notice author Thursday March 13, 2014 16:06author by Cat Shumway Report this post to the editors

Launch of Attac Ireland with a public talk by Esther Jeffers (University of Paris VIII and European Attac Network)

Where: Room 4-027, Dublin Institute of Technology, Aungier Street, Dublin 2

Attac is an international movement working towards social, environmental and democratic alternatives to neoliberal globalisation. Founded in France in 1998, it fights for the regulation of financial markets, the closure of tax havens, the introduction of global taxes to finance global public goods, the cancellation of debt, fair trade, and the implementation of limits to free trade and capital flows (see www.attac.org).

5th April marks the launch of the Irish chapter of Attac. Attac Ireland is delighted to welcome Esther Jeffers who will speak at the event. Esther is a lecturer at the University of Paris VIII and a specialist on shadow banking and finance in the Euro area.
Esther’s talk will be followed by an open meeting for anyone interested in becoming involved with Attac Ireland. This meeting will provide an opportunity for people to learn more about Attac, and to discuss how Attac Ireland could be developed to challenge financial power and injustice through education and activism.

Hope it was a successful launch.

There are questions to be asked of MEP's, looking to be re-elected, on the trans atlantic free trade agreement ( TAFTA).

I see here in France there is beginning to be some movement:

And the debate from last November is worth listening to ( for those who understand French)
