Isn't it a bit odd that we're halfway through a General Election and yet the political parties have not sought to discuss their or their opponent's record during the pandemic, asks Brian Monteith.

In the UK, interest in news has halved since 2015 amidst a worldwide plummet in engagement with current affairs. The BBC reports on a global survey showing a sharp loss of trust in news providers and a hiding from reality.

Pre-Election Water Charges National Demonstration - Another Ireland Is Possible! -Sat 20th Feb

category national | bin tax / household tax / water tax | event notice author Tuesday February 16, 2016 23:45author by right2water - Right2Waterauthor email Right2WaterIRL at gmail dot com Report this post to the editors

Garden of Remembrance, Parnell Square, Dublin 1 @ 2pm Sat 20th Feb

Right2Water/Right2Change are hosting a national protest against water charges and a festival for change ahead of the 2016 election.

'Another Ireland is Possible', but we have to fight for it. We have a Right2Water, a Right2Health, a Right2Education, a Right2Housing and we deserve a country that's not based on cronyism, corruption or greed, but instead one based on equality, democracy and social justice.

Here are 18 reasons to get out and join this historic demonstration:

1. Ireland is one of the most unequal countries in the European Union.

2. More than ten percent of people suffer from food poverty.

3. 1,500 children are living in emergency accommodation.

4. Lone parents – who are the most deprived group in the State with 63% already experiencing material deprivation – had their supports cut.

5. 36 percent of children experience multiple deprivation.

6. 73 families are becoming homeless every month.

7. 300,000 have emigrated since the current government took power.

8. Despite the enormous emigration figures, 200,000 are still in search of a job.

9. We have the second highest prevalence of low pay in the entire OECD.

10. There are 130,000 people on the social housing waiting lists

11. The Phoenix charity expects 50,000 families to lose their homes in the next few years.

12. We have the second highest prevalence of under-employment in the EU15 (ie 147,000 workers who want more hours but their employer will not give them those hours).

13. We have record numbers of people (600) waiting on trolleys in our underfunded public hospitals.

14. 470,000 people have nothing left to spend after all bills are paid and 1.7 million say they have less than €100 to spend after all essential bills have been paid.

15. The number of millionaires in Ireland has increased from 16,000 in 2008 to 91,000 in 2014.

16. Water charges will be continued unless we achieve real change in Dáil Éireann.

17. 37,000 families are in mortgage arrears of two years or more.

18. 11,000 patients have been waiting 18 months or more for an outpatient appointment.

This is not a "recovery" for the vast majority of people in this country and it is certainly not the vision of the heroes of 1916. So on Saturday, 20th February 2016, we will be assembling at the Garden of Remembrance in memory of those who died for a fair Ireland, one that put people first instead of financiers, speculators and corporations.

See you all there: be part of the change that this country needs and deserves!
