The Peoples Movement on the Crisis in Ukraine

In advance of the Protest at the European People’s Party shindig in Dublin on the 7th March a statement on the developing crisis in Ukraine was sent to the media from the Peoples Movement:
"It is important to counter the big lie that Irish people relish EU austerity and are indifferent to EU militarisation. Ireland should not support Germany's geo-political ambitions, which are now being blatantly advanced under the EU flag.

Showing folly well beyond the normal, the EU has allowed itself to be used to bring Europe to the brink of war by supporting the overthrow of the legitimate government in Ukraine, with the German and Polish Foreign Ministers and EU "High Representative" Baroness Ashton turning up personally in Kiev to encourage the 'peaceful demonstrators' there. The deaths in Kiev included half a dozen police officers. This awkward fact went unreported in most media coverage of the Ukraine crisis last week.

'Neutral' Ireland has no business supporting EU interference in Ukraine or contributing to the stirring up of antagonism against Russia
