If this serves to highlight one thing, it is the need for Irish citizens now more than ever to make their voices heard.

Join the protests on Saturday February 9th taking place throughout the country. Take to the streets in Dublin, Cork, Galway, Limerick, Waterford and Sligo. Make the government feel the pressure of its citizens. The time is here to unite and oppose.
