The Cork-based Ballyhea protest group, which has staged a weekly protest against the banks bail-out since March 2011, is coming to Donegal where they will be joined by members of Donegal Action against Austerity.

Everyone is invited to come along to the Main Street Car Park (where the new Aldi store is under construction) in Donegal town at 4.45pm on Saturday, October 27.

A march will proceed from there to the Diamond where the group from Ballyhea will address the crowd. Diarmaid O’Flynn, Ballyhea protest organiser and journalist, said: “What the ECB and the EU are doing to us is oppressive. Under threat of what will happen if we don’t accept their terms, they are combining their financial and political muscle to blackmail and bully the Irish government into paying a debt that is not ours, a debt of tens of billions of euro.”

Joe Murphy of Donegal Action Against Austerity said: “We would ask all the people in Donegal to come out and support these good people. We look forward to welcoming them on to Donegal soil.
