No welcome for Bush

There are a number of events now taking place to build for the Bush visit.- see below

The rally at the City Hall at 12.30pm on the day is expected to be big.  NIPSA passed an emergency motion at their annual conference backing the rally.  More importantly they have sent a flyer to every single union branch telling members to support and attend the rally. People can just stick them up on notice boards in their workplaces. 

As ICTU (NI) is backing the rally and they represent all the Unions, everyone who is in a workplace can stick the leaflet up on their Union Notice board.

Leafletting has taken place at a number of workplaces with a really great response from people.There are hundreds of posters and leaflets for people to distribute

We will be assembling at the Daniel O'Connell statue on O'Connell Street at the quays in Dublin and hope to form a single line of people all the way up to the Parnell monument and beyond. 

As far as possible, people should wear orange clothing as we only have a limited number of the jumpsuits. We will provide signs. Bring your friends, family, co-workers, neighbours etc. We need as many bodies as possible to make the strongest statement possible to the Irish, British, American and other governments. Torture must end. 

Millions of volunteers needed but we will settle for thousands :) 

Please sign up to join the demonstration. Email Sandra – sscotthayward@amnesty.ie
