Cllr Ryan said:
“Ten years ago, this month, 120,000 people marched against austerity in Dublin. Four parties have governed since, but little has improved for working people.
Through its consistent prioritisation of corporations and profit over workers, the environment or peace, the European Union played a driving role in producing the policies which have created the ongoing crisis in standard of living, housing and access to services that many working people are experiencing.
I am running for Europe this May because I believe the EU is creating a dangerous future. With the far right on the rise across Europe, and the gap between rich and poor ever widening, Dublin cannot simply afford to elect more of the same.”
