Cork March against Austerity: A Parade in Defiance.
In the face of the looming budget of December 6th, we are calling on all people who feel that this situation is unjust and who are seeking positive change to stand together – and march in definance of the cuts on December 3rd in Cork.
Our plan is to meet at Emmet Place, outside the Opera House at 2pm, to head along the quay, up St. Patrick St., down Grand Parade, past the Occupy Cork camp on South Mall and right down South Mall and around along the quay back to Emmet Place again.
We will end the march with a space for music, theatre and performance; and above all, a voice for all - whoever wishes to speak will be heard. Let’s assemble in Cork City, organise and express ourselves.
Similar actions on this date will be co-ordinated with Occupy camps in Dublin, Waterford and Galway. A solidarity action from Occupy Belfast has also been proposed.
Cork Community Art Link have already offered to facilitate creative workshops in prop, puppet, placard and banner making and also in street theatre and performance in their space at 107 Shandon Street. They will be available from 10-6pm, Friday 25th and 12-6pm, Saturday 26th, for some initial sessions, while more times will be added throughout next week in the build-up to Saturday.
