    Default March on Sat 9th Feb Lift the Burden Jobs not Debt

    Lift the Burden - Jobs not Debt - Protest Sat Feb 9th Home Page

    I am appealing to all the posters on here who are so vociferous about the austerity programme to join in the march next Sat. I know that I will probably get a load of abuse on this thread, people will say they will not take part in anything organised by the unions etc etc. However I believe that people need to make a visible show against austerity so that the EU and the rest of the world get the message that the Irish people are not just sheep. It should not matter who organises the protest it is about what you believe in and making your opinion count. By joining in you are not saying you support the unions rather that you do not support austerity.

    What Austerity are you on about?

    Many families get much more on welfare that their skills would earn in the marketplace!

    The governments spending way more on public sector pay and oensions, social welfare and capital spending than it takes in taxes, with the debts to prove it. What austerity?

    If we borrowed €14 billion less and reduced welfare by 14/21 or 66% that would bring you a lot closer to austerity.

    Needless to say if borrowing was reduced by €14 billion tax revenue would fall substantially too.

    There fore the reduction in welfare required would be closer to 80% to balance the budget.

    What would be the objective of the march. Do the organizers believe that protest will change the minds of the people who make decisions in Ireland. I don't think so. Marching is useless. Just gives union leadership a chance to point to protest marches and say 'Look, we are doing our jobs'. Don't think so.
    Stand there in silence, look up to the sky and remember how brave they were.
