Ógra Shinn Féin occupy IBEC Offices ahead of Irish Ferries march

8 December, 2005

Ógra Shinn Féin activists have occupied part of the IBEC offices on Baggot St. in solidarity with Irish Ferries workers still in control of vessels docked at Holyhead. Brian Keane of Ógra Shinn Féin called on young people to take to the streets tomorrow.

Mr Keane said: "We are doing this to show solidarity with Irish Ferries workers ahead of the march tomorrow but we are also doing it to focus on the dangers for young working class people that exist in the race to the bottom and the displacement of Irish jobs.

"We are calling for young people to get out of their workplaces, schools and colleges tomorrow and take to the streets in Dublin, Cork, Limerick, Galway, Sligo, Athlone, Waterford, Rosslare and Tralee to fight for their future and for their jobs. It was the young people of Ireland who led the campaign against the war on Iraq and it is they who must seize the day to take a stand against the exploitation of Irish and foreign workers and demand equal treatment for all workers.

"Ógra Shinn Féin will be taking part in the march on Friday alongside our comrades in Sinn Féin and the labour movement and we call on all young people to stand up for yourselves and your class." CRÍOCH
