This is the initiative that grew out of the water-charge protests and aims to bring together many of the organisations and individuals involved in that campaign. It will be interesting to see if it can successfully pull it off.
To an extent the momentum of the water protests led the squabbling organisations to unite, rather than the other way round. One way or another, it is a brave attempt to counter the smug complacency of the establishment parties.- Ireland is experiencing the worst housing and homelessness crisis in its history.
- Healthcare waiting lists are at an all time high.
- We have among the highest prevalence of low pay and insecure work in the world.
- Our school class sizes are among the highest in the EU.
- And our political system is rife with corruption and scandals.
But it doesn't have to be this way.
The Right2Change Trade Unions (Communications Workers' Union, Mandate Trade Union, OPATSI and Unite the Union) are calling a conference of trade unionists, political activists and community activists to establish whether a coordinated fight-back through cooperation can be established.
We believe Another Ireland is Possible and we are encouraging everyone who shares a vision for a fairer, more equal Ireland to join us on Saturday, 4th November 2017 in the Mansion House, Dawson Street, Dublin 2, to discuss a pathway towards achieving a truly egalitarian Republic.
