February 2016

The coalition which organised today’s rally against PEGIDA, has hailed it as a great  success. Over 2,000 people from all four corners of Ireland braved the cold and rain to create a warm and festive atmosphere at the GPO. People came out to counter the intended launch by far right elements of a self-styled “PEGIDA Ireland”. This did not happen.

Robin Hood

A coalition of trade unions, NGOs and rights groups has called on the Government to back a Robin Hood tax on bankers and stockbrokers which could raise up to 360 million euro (£273m) a year.
