It’s time to seize the opportunity for change - Adams
Speaking in advance of a national demonstration organised by the Right2Change movement this afternoon, Sinn Féin President Gerry Adams has said the "in the last weekend of the campaign Enda Kenny and the government parties are ratcheting up their scare tactics. Their policy positions have no credibility because for the vast majority of families there is no recovery.
“Micheál Martin and Fianna Fáil have no credibility because their policies caused the crises in the first place.
“Enda Kenny wants to be returned to power to continue his austerity policies and his chaotic management of the health service.
“There is a better way to govern our society. To build a fair recovery and a better Ireland."
The Sinn Féin leader said:
"Right2change is a real progressive alternative".
“It has endorsed over 100 candidates for the general election who have signed up to the Right2Change principles of a right to water, a right to housing and a right to decent jobs.
“The three amigos, Enda Kenny, Joan Burton and Micheál Martin havent delivered proper public services and a sustainable economy up to now and they’re not going to. They’ve had their chance.
“Sinn Féin can deliver a fair recovery and sustainable recovery.
“Next Friday citizens have a choice between more of the same or in this centenary year a new Government that will ensure working families are given a break by scrapping water charges and the property tax and taking 277,000 workers out of the USC net.
“Ordinary working families will be far better off under Sinn Féin while the top 6% will have to contribute a little extra.
“Public services will be improved as we will put more money into building homes and into supporting the gardaí while transforming the two tier health system into a universal health service.”
