Socialist Party TD Joe Higgins will visit Kilkenny this week, where he will speak at a public meeting on Thursday, January 23, in the Clubhouse Hotel.
The Kilkenny Anti Austerity Alliance is hosting the meeting at 8pm, which will be chaired by AAA candidate for Kilkenny City West Conor MacLiam. Higgins, a veteran anti-water taxes campaigner, will address the theme ‘Where’s our recovery? – End austerity now!’
He will also discuss Irish Water and water charges, Eirgrid and pylons, the lack of affordable housing and the squeeze on rent allowance, real jobs and the JobBridge programme, and the Central Remedial Clinic scandal. The Anti Austerity Alliance is inviting all those with an interest to come and join the discussion.
The meeting will also be addressed by Bernadette Rynne, a nurse and AAA candidate in Dublin.
