People’s Movement Referendum Campaign

category national | eu | press release author Monday May 07, 2012 11:50author by O.O'C. - People's Movementauthor email post at people dot ieauthor address 5 Cavendish Row, directly opposite the Gate Theatreauthor phone 087 2308330 Report this post to the editors

The People’s Movement has opened an office in central Dublin for the duration of the referendum campaign on the Permanent Austerity Treaty. The office is at 5 Cavendish Row, directly opposite the Gate Theatre.
Warning: Permanent Austerity Ahead!
Warning: Permanent Austerity Ahead!

Get involved!

The result of this important referendum will have a major influence on this country and the welfare of its people.

So why not become involved? You don’t have to be a treaty expert to deliver leaflets or put up posters—just a willing worker, and there are many more tasks in a campaign. It is a relatively easy way to participate in a process whose result will profoundly shape your future.

There are now only three weeks to go to polling day, and every effort, no matter how small, to boost the No vote counts.

So why not give us a call or send a text to 087-2308330, or drop a line to post@people.ie.


This is an urgent appeal for financial support to help us to wage a successful campaign against the Austerity Treaty. The treaty has been roundly rejected by such bodies as the European Trade Union Confederation and large swathes of opinion throughout Europe.

In Ireland we have a chance to decisively reject the treaty in a referendum. Our campaign is swinging into operation, but, as always, it is an uneven struggle with regard to resources. In the last Lisbon referendums the Yes side spent some €2.3 million, while the combined No side spent €1.2 million. In the second referendum the contrast was even greater: €10.206 million for the Yes side against €780,000 for the No side. All the indications are that vast resources will again be expended to engineer a Yes vote on 31 May.

We urgently need your help!

Opinion polls on voters’ attitudes show 30 per cent in favour, 23 per cent against, and 39 per cent still undecided.

Already non-partisan commentators have found the Yes campaign to be faltering, as four major trade unions decide to urge a No vote and the Irish Congress of Trade Unions declares that it will not be supporting the treaty.

Thomas Pringle TD, a patron of the People’s Movement, is challenging the constitutionality of the European Stability Mechanism (ESM) Treaty.

This treaty is closely linked to the Austerity Treaty, and he is asking the High Court to determine, among other matters, whether the Constitution of Ireland requires a referendum on that treaty also.

It will be a victory for democracy if he is successful; but it will also put a further enormous strain on our resources, as it will necessitate yet another referendum.

We earnestly ask you to respond favourably to this request.

It is great to see the Peoples movement active again. I remmember reading some information published by the Peoples movement which had an extensive analysis of why the Euro as a currency had failed. This document was advocating that Ireland should leave the Euro and it was very convincing in its arguaments. Unfortunately I dont have a copy of this document but I think that it would be a great contribution to the debate if you could put it up online or even provide a link to it.

I am unemployed and if I like your leaflet I have time to distribute them. Could you upload your leaflet on this site so we can have a look at it please. Is it calling for a default or saying anything different to the other very bland and boring NO leaflets out there?
