No To Bondholder Bailout protest coming to Co Tipperary

The Ballyhea Bank Bondholder Bailout Protesters have been marching every Sunday Since March 6th 2010, until the deal of the previous November is revisited and revised in favour of the Irish citizenry. Next week they are coming to Tipperary.

This Sunday, September 16th, week 81, timed to coincide with the reconvening of the Dáil, they begin a three-day Crusade to demand that Enda Kenny takes on the ECB. They are on a march up the country towards Dublin and will be stopping off in a few towns along the route. Nenagh and Roscrea are on the route and they are calling on supporters to join them on Monday 17th September at the following times:

10.45am: Nenagh, meet at the Courthouse, 15-minute march towards Dublin;
11.30am: Roscrea, meet in the square in front of AIB bank, 15-minute march out Dublin road (A full list of towns on the route is below).

The Ballyhea protesters were joined in their campaign by neighbouring Charleville and are now known as ‘The Ballyhea/Charleville Bank Bondholder Bailout Protest ‘.

On their website they state:

For 80 weeks we’ve been marching against that ECB-enforced extortion of tens of billions from the Irish people. On October 1st, for example, AIB (which we own 99.8%) pays an unguaranteed bond of €1bn. This year, 2012, the total will be just short of €20bn; next year it’s another €17bn. ”

Diarmuid O Flynn who runs the website also maintains another site Bondwatch Ireland highlighting the amounts and dates of bonds due to be paid out. The screenshot below show a table of upcoming bonds.
