The political grouping Fine Gael sits with in the European Parliament in Strasbourg calls itself the “European People’s Party”
The EPP are holding a congress in Dublin early next month.
The venue is the Convention Centre in North Wall Quay
Among the delegates to Dublin will be German Chancellor Angela Merkel as well as the president of the European Commission José Manuel Barroso and the president of the European Council Herman van Rompuy
The EPP is driving the agenda of austerity and militarisation in the EU, and this is an opportunity to let them know how we feel about their policies.
The Peoples Movement will be holding two protests at the EPP get-together on the twin themes of EU austerity and EU militarisation. The political congress, which will be attended by Merkel, Barroso, van Rompuy etc. is to select a candidate for the position of President of the EU Commission. Over 2,000 delegates are expected to attend.
Friday 7th March The first protest will commence at 9:00 and end at 10:00. We will assemble at the Custom House at 8:45. During this period, delegates will be arriving for the plenary session that will select a candidate.
Friday 7th March The second protest will commence at 13:00 and end at 2:00. We will assemble at 12:45 at the Custom House. During this period, the result of the election will be announced; there will be a press conference etc.
It is important that the international media do not think that all Irish people relish EU austerity or that we are not aware of the rush to militarise the EU. So please try to support one or both of these protests.
