The Repudiate The Debt Campaign brought their ongoing protest to the steps of the Dáil where, after nearly two months of well paid holidays, the tanned faces of a motley crew made their way back to “work”. They were met by a wall of noise from people who were determined to ensure that our message of Repudiate The Debt was heard. Minister Joan Burton may have tried to sneak past us but by-standers were interested in listening to what we had to say and most agreed with our core message. Even RTE Radio One’s Drivetime were engaged with us and broadcasted our message on the airwaves this afternoon.
The debt is an odious debt, it is not the people’s debt and we ask everyone to stand up and write to your local politician to tell them so.

DEMAND A REFERENDUM
We are being forced to pay a debt that is not of our making. The banks’ debt is not sovereign debt. It was not borrowed by the Government to build schools or hospitals, or to develop our natural resources: this is private and corporate debt, and we should refuse to pay it.
We call for the democratic right to vote on the socialisation of debt by a Government that had no mandate from the people.
HOW MUCH DO WE OWE?
Adrian Dunbar, Cllr. Ciaran Perry, Robert Ballagh, Patrick Bergin (Actor), Cllr. Declan Bree, Kathleen Lynch – Professor of Equality Studies, UCD, Technical Electrical and Engineering Union (TEEU).
