WUAG due to protest.

265

South Tipperary Independant grouping, the Workers' and Unemployed Action Group is to hold a protest outside Clonmel Town Hall as the Labour Party marks its 100th anniversary.

The event, which will take place on May 27th will mark 100 years since James Connolly and Jim Larkin proposed successfully to the Irish TUC Anual general meeting that a 32 county All Ireland Labour Party be set up.

However, the WUAG, which is an affiliate of the United Left Alliance is claiming that the austerity measures in place in Ireland is the direct opposite of the policies advocated by Connolly and Larkin.

As a result WUAG of which Independent TD Seamus Healy is a member is to hold a protest outside Clonmel Town Hall as the Mayor of Clonmel Cllr Darren Ryan unveils a plaque commemorating the  100th year anniversary.

It will take place at 11am on Sunday next and will be addressed by Deputy Healy and other invited speakers.
