“There is a huge political choice facing every one of us…The wealth division in Ireland is obscene. It must be brought to an end.” – Gregor Kerr, WSM spokesperson

Anarchist organisation Workers Solidarity Movement (WSM) will participate in the 1% Network Walking Tour taking place on Saturday (9th October), leaving St. Stephens Green at 1p.m.

“There is a huge political choice facing every one of us…The wealth division in Ireland is obscene. It must be brought to an end.” – Gregor Kerr, WSM spokesperson

Anarchist organisation Workers Solidarity Movement (WSM) will participate in the 1% Network Walking Tour taking place on Saturday (9th October), leaving St. Stephens Green at 1p.m.

“The purpose of the tour is to highlight the huge wealth divide which exists in Ireland and to prompt a debate about how that wealth divide can be ended,” said Gregor Kerr, WSM spokesperson. “There is a huge political choice facing every one of us. If we continue to meekly accept current government policy our incomes and our public services face even greater devastation. Unless a new approach is taken, even greater disaster will be visited on the lives of ordinary people. The wealth division in Ireland is obscene. It must be brought to an end.”

“The fact that 1% of the population owns 34% of the wealth is the inevitable result of the way in which our society has been run and the political choices that have been made. Now is the time to begin the debate on how a new approach can be taken. We hope that this walking tour will be the catalyst for just such a debate,” Kerr continued.

The 1% Network is a coalition of groups which has come together to oppose the cutback agenda of the government and to promote a socialist alternative to the current socio-economic system. The name of the coalition was chosen to highlight the fact that just 1% of the population control in excess of 34% of the wealth of the state.
