    i have been on the water marches – i believe strongly in this.
    I dispair that the right2change has taken a hold of it too – its’ diluting the aim of the protests.

    why do the left always do this? they can’t be happy with an agenda and always mess things up bringing their own extra stuff in and splitting the crowd.
    one previous march had a group protesting about racism also – it was a day for water protests.


    Although i will be there and hope to get a photo with yanis.
    I’ll give him a big hug too

      Its what they always do.
      Take a genuine problem and regular citizens protesting.
      Infiltrate, trying to be the vanguard, try to take over the popular discontent and lead the people to the glorious revolution.

      Socialist Party always at this. Hence the name changes like AAA, PBP to make them more palatable.
      Problem is, most are so ideologically “pure” that they are incapable of really working with people, hence all the splits, in-fighting, actual fighting which just alienate good people like yourself. As a result, popular protests fade.
      SF have cottoned on to the technique and are organizing under the banner of Right2Change. Throw in a few unions and independents to make it seem like its not SF. They don’t care about your protest, just about using it for their own purpose.

        i fear you might be right
        shower of b@stards will ruin what has been a huge mobilisation of people .

        I always suspected paul murphy and coppinger cared more for Marxism that the issues they bleated about

      well done you.
      but that’s not the world I want.

      I want a world where a working person can work 40 hours and have some semblance of a decent life.
      Where tax cash is not spent on bank debt and is spend on something meaningful that is of benefit to the people.

      But hey don’t let my dream derail yours.

    You can just imagine the collection of half wits that will be attending this event. Christ, how utterly depressing…

    How much did Yanis cost the Greek people?
    He fecked off leaving people in dire condition. He can go back to academia in Australia / US.

    He never actually suffered as a result of his own pomposity, unlike Greeks who have seen pensions cut 12 times, no welfare system to speak off, health system without necessary drugs and an unemployment rate that is utterly catastrophic.

      “How much did Yanis cost the Greek people?”

      Significantly less than right wing economic policies that were forced on them by the EU.

      1. DubLoony

        He didn’t actually help the situation is what I’m saying.
        How’s the Greek tax collection system going?

        1. MoyestWithExcitement

          Of course he didn’t. He led the country to rejecting a new EU bailout by referendum that they were forced into taking anyway. Nobody could have done anything in those conditions.

    Don’t tell me this moronic narcissist is back? Maybe some good will come of it, like reminding the electorate here who his admirers are.

    I think it’s gone beyond the water issue. And the Irish Water issue is part of the broader corrupt business culture that needs urgent sorting out. Though this is more of a global issue these days. Looking forward to seeing what Yanis has to say at it.
