" A wealth of information..."

"1169 And Counting is a wealth of information on our Republican past and present , and demonstrates how the Irish political landscape , like that of any nation, will never be a black and white issue..."

PROTEST MARCH TO BE HELD IN CLONDALKIN BY CDP/JI/CE WORKERS ON MONDAY 7th DECEMBER 2009.
CDP/JI/CE 'savings' needed to pay for the financial bonus to the political 'elite'.

RSF members and supporters were involved in the last protest (Monday, November 30th last) in Clondalkin , Dublin, and will be present again on this protest, which will be held on Monday 7th December 2009 in Clondalkin Village at the constituency office of local Fianna Fail elected representative John Curran , beginning at 4pm.
The protest has been organised by Community Development Project groups and will be supported by , amongst others, CDP's, JI and CE workers from Clondalkin and other parts of Dublin. The groups are meeting up at 4pm outside Curran's office at 2a Main Street , Clondalkin (telephone: 01 459 2803 / 01 457 9913 / mobile :087 250 1980 / fax: 01 457 9805) .
It will be loud and colourful -
and serious ; serious, because hundreds of local people , and thousands State-wide, will be affected by the intended closure of the CDP/JI/CE etc programmes , not to mention the 'ripple effect' that losing those community workers will have for local organisations; at the time of writing, more than 50 JI employees are placed in more than 30 community organisations in the Clondalkin area alone. The types of projects supported range from football clubs, community centres, educational services, and caring organisations, all of which will be severely affected, to the point of closure in some cases, should they lose the JI /CE workers that are placed there.
THOSE TAKING PART WILL BE MEETING UP AT 4PM OUTSIDE THE CLONDALKIN OFFICE OF JOHN CURRAN ON MONDAY 7TH DECEMBER 2009 : SUPPORT YOUR COMMUNITY - JOIN US ON THE PICKET !
Thanks!
Sharon.
