In the Dáil today, Bríd tackles the Minister over public sector pay restoration demands, but he dodges the issue. Seems to be what he’s best at.
Bríd shows the government’s budget, far from being ‘prudent’, simply favours the corporations and the rich and gives least to those whose needs are greatest.
Brid speaks about the way the rich get away with murder when it comes to taxation – predicting the budget for next week?
Bríd Smith TD raised issues regarding private operators during the strike by Dublin bus and also the role of private companies tracking employee sick-leave
A livley protest outside the Dail today by young nurse who’s just demands must be met immediately!
Following the biggest yet pro-Choice demonstration in Dublin of 40 to 50,000, People Before Profit Choice held a post-demo meeting in Toners Pub in Baggott St. Bríd addressed the meeting and said the demand for ‘a women’s right to choose’ is the demand for equality. She links the denial of full rights for women with the denial of other rights including workers’ rights to decent wages, and our communities’ rights to adequate public services – like housing and health, rights denied by the current government and the establishment parties. She said to win our rights, we have to ‘GET POLITICAL’, and invites all who agree to join People Before Profit.
