Following Eamonn Keane’s NAMA show lunchtime 14/4/2010 there were a number of texts asking that a march be organized indeed some suggested we should march every day until change is brought about.
This will never happen because
• The Irish are too docile, too used to taking it up the **** from the establishment and from Dublin Castle/Leinster House.
• We are far more concerned with nebulous concepts such as freedom, republicanism, the Irish Language and on and on than with our wage packet and therefore our welfare and that of our families.
• The places where we might look for the leadership of a protest movement –the Trade Union movement, left leaning parties ,intellectuals and artists all have their snouts in the trough and are seduced by the feelings of power they receive from seeming to be important “players”
• The youth are disenfranchised and disinterested—the next flight to Australia will do them it seems.
So it seems we are due to spend many more generations being reamed by the wealthy and we cannot even raise the energy to protest –sad but true!
