“What the Government won’t tell you about the Fiscal Compact Treaty.”

Speaker: Prof Terry McDonough. NUIG Dept. of Economics
EU Treaty Referendum public event

Sunday 29th April 7pm Richardson’s, Eyre Sq, Galway:

McDonough hit the national headlines yesterday when he told RTE’s Morning Ireland that a No vote in the forthcoming referendum would not result in Ireland being denied funding, as is cla...imed by the FG/Labour coalition.
Terry will give a short talk – in layman’s terms – on the treaty and why it will not solve the economic crisis that Ireland & the EU are presently in, the implications of passing this treaty, why we must not be BLACKMAILED into voting yes, and the alternatives.
Only 1 speaker plus questions.
*The No Campaign will begin canvassing in Galway City Monday, 30th April.
Meeting arranged by People's Movement (no obligation/pressure on attendees).

There is a ULA debate with Philip Lane coming up some time this week.

I can't find details of it on either Face Book (is there a ULA page) or on the ULA website.

I am all for Connolly commemorations, but does this have any direct link with the Fiscal treaty?

Maybe combining them is an environmental measure, to save petrol?
