Communities Against Cuts Protest March September 30th at 1pm September 29, 2009

Posted by Garibaldy in Economy.

Just to remind people about this march tomorrow, assembling at Parnell Square at 1pm to march to Dáil Éireann.

“The implications for services and communities are real and devastating,” said David Connolly, chairperson of the ‘Communities against Cuts’ campaign.

“Projects that deliver vital childcare, youth support, drug rehabilitation, education, training, literacy programmes and community development will have to cut services and many will face closure as the result of the government cut-backs and the McCarthy proposals.

“These cuts are financially reckless and will end up costing the State more in the long run. For example, for every €1 that is spent on quality childcare the State saves €10; for every €1 spent on drug rehabilitation the State saves €3.”

“The quality of life for all communities in the country will be damaged if the Government is allowed to force through these drastic cuts in community services. We are calling on every community to support the protest and march to the Dáil on Wednesday,” he said.
