Vote NO to the Austerity Treaty
For Community and Country, Vote NO!
If the latest European treaty is passed on May 31st, it will create a new law which will place permanent restrictions on government fiscal policy. This means that there will be legal limits on how much this government and all future governments can borrow and spend.
For example if a government needs to borrow money to invest in job creation, housing, healthcare or education they won’t be able to because of these new limits. The so-called Stability Treaty is nothing more than a financial strait-jacket designed to undermine the power of governments and people across Europe. If the treaty is passed it will lead to years more austerity as the government tries to reduce spending to within the new limits.
Blueshirts and Bankers Vote Yes
If you aren’t sure about what way to vote just look at the rogues gallery that are calling on you to vote yes. Fianna Fáil, a party of gombeen men and cute hoors; Fine Gael, a party of Blueshirts that only ever cared about the rich; Labour, a party that has told more lies than Pinocchio; and IBEC, who represent big business, the banks and the bosses. Think about it. What have any of them ever done for you? And why do they want you to vote yes?
A New Republic
You, your family and your community deserve better than crumbs from the tables of the rich and powerful. You deserve, and have a right, to live in a new all-Ireland republic; a Republic which puts the interests of the majority ahead of the ruling minority; a Republic which ensures that wealth and power are spread evenly across all of society; a Republic which guarantees all of its citizen’s access to jobs, housing, healthcare and education. A new Irish Socialist Republic.
Don’t be intimidated by the threats of the government, the right-wing media and the Troika. We are a proud people who have fought long and hard for freedom from the British Empire. Don’t now surrender that freedom to a European Empire. The future of Ireland is your hands. Vote NO!

Má ritear leis an gconradh Eorpach ar an 31ú Bealtaine cuirfear dlí nua ar bun a chuirfidh buanshrianta i bhfeidhm ar bheartais fhioscacha rialtais. Is éard atá i gceist leis an gConradh Cobhsaíochta ná sriantacht airgeadais a chur i bhfeidhm a bhainfidh an bonn de chumhacht rialtas agus dhaoine ar fud na hEorpa. Má ritear leis an gconradh beidh tuilleadh déine i gceist agus an rialtas ag iarraidh caitheamh airgid a choinneáil taobh istigh de theorainneacha nua.
Tá sé de cheart agat agus ag do theaghlach cónaí i bpoblacht nua uile-Éireann a chinntíonn fáil ar phostanna, tithíocht, cúram sláinte agus oideachas. Poblacht Shóisialach nua Éireannach a chinntíonn go roinnfear saibhreas agus cumhacht go cothrom ar fud na sochaí.
Ná bíodh imeagla ort i ngeall ar bhagairtí an rialtais, mheáin chumarsáide na heite deise agus na triúrachta. Tá todhchaí na hÉireann i do lámha. Vótáil NÍL!
