6 December, 2012 - by Mary Lou McDonald TD

Sinn Féin Deputy Leader Mary Lou McDonald TD has called for a mass mobilisation at the Dáil at 2pm on Friday 14 December when the legislation to introduce the family home tax is due to be discussed in the Dáil.

Speaking today Deputy McDonald said;

“The government is trying to rush this legislation through the Dáil before Christmas in an attempt to stop the campaign against the tax from building up a head of steam.

“But the campaign has already begun. Sinn Féin will be active across the state this Saturday and throughout the days and nights of next week.

“We are also calling for a major mobilisation at the Dáil at 2pm on Friday 14th December when the legislation is being debated.

“I would encourage as many people as possible to get out on the streets and show your opposition to this unfair tax before the government rushes it into law.”


Events are planned all over the state this Saturday, including in Tipperary, Clare, Cork, Limerick, Kerry and in Dublin at Inchicore, Walkinstown, Ballyfermot, Crumlin, Blanchardstown, Rathfarnham, Leopardstown and Tallaght.
