social democracy today

  Happy new year. 2014 will be a busy time in Ireland. We will have the European and the local elections this year. 

The parties that we will choose for the European elections will influence European policy. Please check what are the main economic policies of the different parties. Europe isnt about local issues. It is about a bankers or a peoples Europe.

  Irish local democracy is poor. The new reforms will make the problems worse. Town councils will be gone. The number of councilors will be reduced. Non elected officials will have greater power. The absence of democracy reveals the importance of democracy to humanity. It is important to elect councilors who will defend the people, who will speak truth to power. We must unite to create genuine local government in Ireland. These reforms need to be scraped. Genuine local democracy has not arrived in Ireland yet.
