Monaghan - Event Notice

Rock Against The Treaty!

category monaghan | eu | event notice author Wednesday April 30, 2008 18:20author by No! 2 Lisbon - Ógra Shinn Féinauthor email osfnational at yahoo dot ie Report this post to the editors

Ógra Shinn Féin are organising a ‘Rock Against The Treaty’ in McKenna’s Bar, Monaghan Town on Saturday 31st May to build up popular opposition to the upcoming Lisbon Treaty.

The ‘Rock Against The Treaty’ will host music from 4 upcoming bands, and the bar will be decked out in banners and posters with a clear message No! 2 Lisbon.

Speaking on the upcoming event, Monaghan Ógra Shinn Féin activist Senan MacAoidh said,

“The Lisbon Treaty would have hugely damaging effects to our country, damaging our sovereignty, neutrality, environment, workers rights and public services. It is important that everyone, especially the youth mobilise and vote No! 2 Lisbon.”

“We gathered the idea of ‘Rock Against The Treaty’ from the hunger strike era when huge ‘Rock Against The Blocks’ where organised across Ireland. They where hugely successful and allowed young people to support the cause of the POW’s in a novel and exciting way. We want to create a similar atmosphere today, where young Irish people can play an exciting part in the No! 2 Lisbon campaign.”

“We need to be imaginative and relevant in the upcoming months to mobilise support behind a No! vote, and initiatives like targeting GAA matches, banner drops and ‘Rock Against The Treaty’ nights can play a hugely positive role in ensuring Ireland stands up for the rest of Europe!”

Why is it that all the advocates of the Lisbon Treaty host debates and discussions on the Treaty, while all the opponents of the Treaty simply seem to host one-sided events with no chance for discussion?

Alan:

Can you please provide the dates and venues for all the debates and discussions on the Lisbon Treaty that Brian Cowen will be hosting between now and the referendum? Perhaps post an event notice or notices listing them?

Indymedia lists five events about the Treaty for May, but none of them is hosted by Brian Cowen. Since such debates are likely to be of interest to grassroots activists, this would be an ideal place to list them.

Best,
Coilín.
