    Default PROTEST on Friday outside Dail - Respite cut by 19%

    There will be a dignified protest outside the Dail on Friday the 7th at 12 noon to highlight the cuts in respite for those who care for the disabled, elderly and those suffering from terminal illness.


    Respite care grant cut by over

    ***Respite grant march tomorrow.***, Special Needs - Rollercoaster.ie

    "The Carers Association recognises your feelings around the 19% cut to the Respite Care Grant, and want to assure you that we feel the same. We propose to call for a reversal of this cut, by marching to the Dáil tomorrow Friday 7th at 12 noon."

    Please make a stand if you can.
    If you can't make it please ask someone to go on your behalf. Lets make a stand and be heard!


    Respite Care Grant

    Meet outside Buswells Hotel, across from Leinster House at 11.45am.

    For the love of,

    Folks - we need to spit protesting for only those things that affect us alone,

    If we all don't stand together and protest against the destruction of our country, nothing will change,

    You're all going after the symptoms,

    We need to cure the disease!

    I predict that this will be the U-turn that is offered up in order that the rest of the budget gets through.

    I've been told that they expect to save 3.2 million by making this cut.

    Agree 100%-same thing last year, related to disability issues again. This practice is disgusting. When I hear people say that Enda Kenny is a decent man, decent man my .... This ploy is disgusting and we the people should let it be known in a very strong fashion.

    About six times what Gilmore and his band of merry advisors costs the state.
    Abortion is an act of violence. Violence demeans humanity, particularly violence against women and children.

    even more disgusting is the stress and upset, if what you say is correct, that it is causing the disabled and those are seriously ill.

    Obvious it will and then people say "ah sure at least they listen to us" meanwhile we continue to pay banks billions.

    That's less than the cost of the governments "special" advisers.
