first_imgDONEGAL Action Against Austerity are holding a protest outside council headquarters in Lifford today.Spokesman Joe Murphy said the purpose of today’s protest is to highlight the anger at the government’s “continued policy of attacking the living standards of ordinary people to satisfy the needs of bankers and bondholders.”Mr Murphy went on: “These policies have led to record levels of unemployment and emigration in Donegal while government ministers and TD and county councillors continue to carry out this policy they cannot expect business as usual. “With pilot water meters already being tested in some counties, and the “Property Tax” bills hitting people in a few weeks government ministers and TDs and county councillors can expect more of these protests.”Mr Murphy said May 1st is nominated as a National Day of Civil Disobedience against the Property Tax.As well as protests and blockades in many towns, villages and cities, they are calling on workers to come out of their workplace and support these protests, during working hours“Remember that Revenue have the power to deduct this rotten tax from our pay packets and welfare payments. This is a step too far for any government to take and for any trade union to tolerate,” added Mr Murphy.  DAAA HOLD PROTEST OUTSIDE COUNCIL HQ IN LIFFORD was last modified: February 25th, 2013 by BrendaShare 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:DAAA HOLD PROTEST OUTSIDE COUNCIL HQ IN LIFFORDlast_img
