Main Speaker: Dr Conor McCabe, School of Equality Studies, UCD
Reply: Padraig Mannion, Research Officer, Workers’ Party
Thursday 21st March, 8pm Strand Hotel, Bray Esplanade
We have had five years of Austerity: – cutbacks; hardship; falling wages; attacks on social welfare; rising unemployment; rising taxes and charges.
Every day in our communities, we see the victims of Austerity
But – who wins from Austerity?
And why are the government, the EU and the Troika so in favour of Austerity?
These presentations will be followed by a full and open debate and discussion chaired by: Frank Hayes, Chairman, Wicklow WP
