Standing Together Across Europe against Failed Austerity

May 17th, 2012 – Pádraig Mac Lochlainn TD

Sinn Fein’s Padraig MacLochlainn has said today that “No is the European answer to the Austerity Treaty.”

MacLochlainn was speaking at a press organized by the Campaign Against the Austerity Treaty alongside MEPs from Ireland, Denmark, Sweden, Germany and Portugal.

Speaking after the press conference Deputy MacLochlainn said:

“Today, we heard about how austerity is failing people across Europe and how Ireland will not be isolated if we reject the Austerity Treaty. I am convinced more than ever that No is the European answer to the Austerity Treaty. We know that anytime in the recent past when people across Europe have had a chance to vote they have rejected the pro-austerity parties.

“By voting No Ireland would be allying herself to the growing movement across Europe which wants Europe to focus on job creation and not on cutting domestic demand across our continent.”
