Let’s Get Fiscal: Women’s perspectives on the Austerity Treaty

Thursday, April 26, 7pm until 9pm Central Hotel, Exchequer St, Dublin

Mary Lou McDonald, TD, Sinn Fein’s deputy leader, will discuss the politics behind the treaty and why institutionalising austerity is bad for citizens, communities and women.

Dr Niamh Gaynor, DCU, will explain what austerity policies involve in general with a specific focus on their impact on women in African countries. Niamh will also draw parallels with women in Ireland.

Sinead Pentony, head of policy, TASC, will deconstruct the treaty itself, explain how it differs from Nice, Lisbon and other EU treaties and analyse its effects on the most marginalised in our society.

Clare Daly, TD, ULA, will examine the outcome of four years of austerity and explain why she is calling for a No vote in the forthcoming referendum.

  1. ‘No’ to this treaty means self-governance, economically and socially. The compact would create constraints on budgeting ireland that would not have averted the present crises, but that would prevent usual budgeting policies, and destroy Ireland’s viabilty as a corporate choice, with the EU ‘harmonising’ corporate tax rates. The people of Europe would respect, net reject the Irish for this brave decision; election of Hollande shows the Peoples’ leaning. We should vote ‘no,’ and retain leverage in our future as a sovereign nation.
