'F21': Big March Against Levy: 'Anyway, It's Time . . . . ' (but for what?)

category national | worker & community struggles and protests | feature author Sunday February 22, 2009 00:46author by Conor. M from the comments (+eds)author email liberalconormurphy at ymail dot com Report this post to the editors

From A Commenteer: 'France 24, BBC, RTE all say up to 100,000. Every single Garda I asked at the march said well over 100,000. The Irish Times has even said up to 120,000! 20,000 in the difference....

Anyway, it's time for the unemployed, the farmers, the workers (private & public), the students and every other sector of society to strike & demand a better deal or put this government out on its arse.

Sinn Fein President Gerry Adams has called on Labour and the Greens to join his party in "a new alliance for change" which would provide "an egalitarian alternative to the politics of greed, inefficiency, waste and corruption". He goes on to say "And I include parties like Labour, the Greens - if they can survive the fall-out from their participation in this government; other smaller parties ; the trade unions; the community organisations that are on the front line in the battle for equality; Gaelgeoirí; rural agencies and organisations, including farming bodies and fishing communities; women's groups; the students, youth organisations and especially those who speak for the disabled, the poor, the unemployed, the homeless and the marginalised in our society."

In this atmosphere, I think this coalition would be our best bet.... Better than Fine feckin Gael anyway'
