Mary Lou McDonald: “the political Establishment in this State have trampled on the 1916 Proclamation”


From SinnFéin.iePolitical establishment have trampled on the 1916 proclamation:

That Proclamation asserted the right of the Irish people to the ownership of Ireland.

Never was it more necessary to assert that right than it is today because the political Establishment in this State have trampled on the 1916 Proclamation.

They have wrecked the Irish economy and sold what remains of our economic sovereignty to the International Monetary Fund and the European Central Bank.

They have bowed the knee to international bankers and capitalists, to the IMF, the ECB and the EU Commission.

The Golden Circle of politicians, bankers and developers have virtually destroyed the Irish economy – and they were bank-rolled by the same international bankers and capitalists and approved by the IMF, the ECB and the EU Commission.

They committed these crimes against our economy but they want us, the Irish people, to pay the price.

Well, our answer to them is ‘No!’  ‘No’ to the surrender of our sovereignty. ‘No’ to the IMF/EU deal. ‘No’ to the attacks on the pay of low to middle income workers. ‘No’ to savage cuts to health and education and social welfare.

The political Establishment wants to tear apart the very fabric of our society and our economy in order to pay back the international speculators and money-lenders who gambled on the property bubble in this State.
