first_imgThousands of people are expected to turn out at protests across the county today to voice their opposition to the latest taxes, levies and austerity cuts.The protest will include campaigners from Can’t Pay Won’t Pay, Donegal Action for Cancer Care, Forum for Change, the JML Diesel protest, the Abolish VRT Campaign, and Joe Murphy who has organised protests around the county recently.The group are calling for the public to mobilise and show their disapproval of these new measures by attending any of the protests being held in their area. Protests are scheduled to take place at 3pm in Letterkenny, Buncrana, Raphoe, Convoy, Castlefin, Gleneely and Ramelton to name a few.The protests are taking place ahead of larger protests in the future, and the groups insist that the public have to make the most of this opportunity to make their voices heard collectively.“One thing that we as a people and a county cannot afford to do any longer is to sit idly by, while the government takes our hard-earned money to pay the debts of a reckless banking system.“There are other ways, and one of the key messages the group wants to get out is the disproportionality of these cuts. The rich keep getting richer, and the poor are getting poorer. “The government is relying on our apathy to get these budgetary measures in place. The message from our group is clear – enough is enough,” said Ryan Stewart, one of the organisers of the events.Joseph Murphy added, “We are taking action now ahead of further protests, and the support from the public so far has been tremendous, but we must keep the pressure on.“Our group is expanding all the time, and we would welcome any other interest groups, and indeed any members of the public who would like to participate more actively in what we are doing to make contact with us. In numbers, we have strength, and we want to keep building on this strength.”You can follow the group on facebook by clicking on this link: THOUSANDS EXPECTED FOR DAY OF PROTESTS ACROSS DONEGAL TODAY was last modified: January 8th, 2012 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:Abolish VRT CampaignausterityCan’t Pay Won’t Payprotestslast_img
