first_imgFour Gardai were on standby last night as protesters surrounded Deputy Joe McHugh’s office in Buncrana last night.Protesters surrounded Deputy Joe McHugh’s office last nightMembers of the Donegal Action Against Austerity supported by Can’t Pay Won’t Pay made their voices known as they protested about austerity measures.The protest passed off without any major incident  but the groups will again protest at the Fine Gael Deputy’s office in Letterkenny today at 4pm. Spokesman Joe Murphy said Deputy McHugh must understand that if he does not stand up for the people of Donegal and stop being a career politician then “we will be there to hold him to task.”“This is going to be a harsh Austerity budget our message to this Government is austerity is not working. When we put that question to Joe mc Hugh he could not answer it.“The people are sick of this austerity and will not tolerate it anymore. The poor and the working poor have to bring Fine Gail/Labour to account. We have to react before it’s too late.“Protest, write letters or e-mail your local government representatives. We, the people of Ireland, have to confront the Fine Gael/Labour government representatives. “We have to get radical, we have to get vocal, we have to protest for our rights.“By paying the bondholders we are destroying the HSE, home help service and child benefit. As a result of paying the bondholders our rural schools are being closed down, our rural Garda stations are being closed down and our rural libraries are being closed down.“We do not need Germany and France to tell us we are a ‘special case’. This is patronizing and shallow rhetoric. We don’t need ‘improved terms and conditions’. This is odious debt which will be passed on to several future generations – annual reparations for a private war between private banks. We need a debt ‘write off’ and we need it now,” he said.The group will appear on RTE’s Frontline on Monday night, take part in the budget day protest on 5th Dec in Dublin and will also hold a public meeting in the Plaza, Buncrana on 13th Dec at 7 30pm.PROTESTERS SURROUND DEPUTY MCHUGH’S OFFICE was last modified: November 30th, 2012 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:deputy joe mchughDonegal Action Against Austerityprotestlast_img read more
