We say no too!
This Saturday, 4th of July, we are gathering to express our Solidarity with the Greek people. The march will start at 12pm at the Central Bank.
Please join in the march!
Event on facebook: https://www.facebook.com/events/372093629667333/
We are also tweeting with the hashtags:
In recent weeks we have seen a concerted effort by the Troika to overturn the democratic decision of the Greek people in January's election to reject austerity.
This began with offering austerity ultimatums in negotiations, escalated to openly discussing replacing the elected government with its opponents, and has finally resulted in outright financial blackmail in removing ELA assistance to force Greek banks to close this week.
The Greek government has taken a democratic decision to go to the people with the proposed terms of a bailout - something the Irish government never did. This decision must be defended against attack by supporters around the world.
We join demonstrators in cities across Europe in standing with the Greek people as they say OXI / NO to the Troika - its antidemocratic practices, its austerity policies and its lack of mandate to decide our futures.
Join us from 12pm Saturday at the Central Bank!
