According to the Press Trust of India (PTI) on August 11, a national home ministry spokesperson stated: “21 children died due to shortage of supply of liquid oxygen in BRD Medical College, in the last 36 hours". The WSWS says:

At least 70 children, some newborn, died at the state-run Baba Raghav Das Medical College Hospital (BRD) in the Indian state of Uttar Pradesh within 10 days, from August 5 to 15. A major contributing factor was the lack of oxygen supplies on August 10–11 after a private supplier withdrew its equipment over outstanding hospital payments.
At least 21 children die in an Indian hospital as oxygen supplies run out

If this is an accurate description of events should the Irish government not make representation to the Indian government that the Irish people, on hearing of this, are appalled and insist that such needless disregard of their own poorest is unacceptable and cause for international shaming if not sanction?

Only a matter of time before Europe starts to feel the wrath of poverty on the scale of India.

Neoliberals are the enemy within. Next time the bitch goes off on one. Don't back off, Confront them.
