national demonstration on nov 27

Better Fairer WayA national demonstration, organised by the Irish Congress of Trade Unions (ICTU), as part of its A Better, Fairer Way campaign, is taking place from 12:00 – 15:00 on Saturday, the 27th November in Dublin.

The ICTU invites everyone to join in making the people’s voice heard before Budget day in Ireland.

Assemble at 12 noon, on November 27th at Wood Quay in Dublin. A route-map for the demonstration is available on the ICTU’s web site.

I’m unable to attend because I’ll be in Wexford as part of the WexWorlds Science Fiction and Fantasy Fiction Festival. This is a prior commitment I made in a professional capacity, and as much as I would like to attend the demonstration, I can’t.

I hope many of you, especially those of you living in Dublin, will march in solidarity with the ICTU to ask for ‘A Better, Fairer Way’ for the people of our country.

Make your voices heard – loud but peacefully – on the streets of Dublin!
