RESISTANCE comes to Limerick (a forum for young people)
Monday July 02, 2007 22:38 by Limerick Socialist Youth - SY & SP comradecianp at gmail dot com Limerick 086-8064801
Sick of environmental destruction, low pay and poverty? Then Come to RESISTANCE!
On Saturday the 21st of July Socialist Youth will host a forum for young people sick of war, poverty, environmental destruction, low pay, and injustice. There will be debate, discussion, a film showing, food and it is followed by a youth gig with several great local bands.
The ‘festival’ begins at 1pm with a debate between Socialist Youth and the Young PDs on ‘Global Warming, Health Crisis, Poverty: Is the Capitalist Market to blame?’. After this there will be a discussion at 3 on ‘Che Guevara and Struggle for Socialism in Latin America Today’. At 4:30 there the must-see environmental documentary ‘Who killed the electric car?’ will be shown.
All the days events, including the gig, take place upstairs in Riddlers bar on Sarsfield St. Throughout the day there will be a book stall with T-shirts, badges, CDs, DVDs, books, pamphlets and leaflets available.
Come to Resistance!
Sick of war, poverty & climate change?
then come to RESISTANCE!
The huge amount of CO2 put into the atmosphere by factories and power plants is threatening to destroy our environment. Climate Change has already doubled the number of hurricanes. Yet the grip of the oil companies over governments means that the vital investment in renewable energy is not taking place.
The power of the oil companies can also be seen in the invasion of Iraq. It is clear now that this was a war for profit & oil. Big business are exploiting other third world countries too especially in Africa. They suck out all the resources they want and leave the people to starve.
We will be debating about how to stop climate change & poverty in the debate with the young PDs. We will also be screening a must-see film about how car companies ‘killed’ the electric car to protect their profits.
Sick of low pay, health crisis & lack of facilities?
then come to RESISTANCE!
Here in Ireland huge profits are being made as workers wages are being cut. Migrant workers as well as young workers are being paid lower than normal wages, causing a general lowering of all wages. Extreme exploitation of workers on wages as low as €2.20 is now taking place more and more.
As well as low pay in work young people have nothing to do outside of work. Here in Limerick the council has repeatedly refused to build the skate park which has been demanded. The government has refused to properly fund youth facilities and instead punish us (with ASBOs etc) for hanging out on the streets.
We will be discussing the root cause of the ‘race to the bottom’ in the debate over the capitalist market. We will also have a perfect chance to challenge the PDs (ie the government), about the lack of youth facilities.
Interested in Latin America, Socialism?
then come to RESISTANCE!
The logic of running society ‘for profit’ means trampling on the rights of ordinary working people everywhere, in the interest of big business. This makes vital for young people to discuss the alternative and what can we do.
Socialist Youth believe that there is another way, where people come before profit. In Latin America, where big business has been most brutal, workers & young people are providing an alternative. A movement against the rule of profit has been actively built by workers & young people. This movement is challenging big business and capialism and is fighting for a democratic socialist society.
We will have a report & discussion on the struggles in Latin America and the legacy of Che Guevara 40 years after he was murdered.
