MARCH 4th 2012 - AN OPEN INVITATION
When we started marching on the first Sunday in March 2011, it was never our intention that Ballyhea would become the focal point for protest against the bank bondholder bailout – contagion was our big ambition, spread the protest from parish to parish til the whole country was marching.
Didn’t happen, so now a smaller ambition; Sunday March 4th is the first anniversary of our first march, and now we DO want to make Ballyhea a focal point for this protest. This is an open invitation to all of you in the media who feel we’re being wronged, to all of you in the arts, to all of you in the world of academia, to all of you amateur and professional in the world of sport (with so many young people leaving, what sporting organisation hasn’t been adversely affected by this?), to all of you in the world of politics, to anyone and to everyone, to join us in Ballyhea on that one day and make this a protest march to remember.
With our own Central Bank set to destroy €3.1bn of our money on March 31st we are reaching a crisis point, a pivotal moment in Irish history. On that one day join us, please, and share this invitation with anyone you think would like to do likewise.
