Break the Cycle
Fianna Fail and Fine Gael have run this country for decades. One in three of their TDs are landlords and they have created Ireland ‘s worst housing crisis. They have slashed taxes on corporations – so we get high PAYE taxes. A worker on the average wage of €35,300 pays 40% tax rate – in France, you don’t reach that tax rate until €73,779. And we get little in return because we live in RIP OFF Ireland.
We give you one guarantee: a vote for People Before Profit will NEVER be used to prop up a Fine Gael or Fianna Fail government.
This is What Their Policies Bring:
- The second highest costs for childcare in the EU.
- The largest primary school classes in Europe.
- The highest level of university fees in Europe.
- Dublin is the second most congested city for traffic in Europe.
- Hospital waiting lists are among the worst in Europe.
- Workers have the lowest number of statutory holidays.
People Before Profit wants a 32-county socialist republic, which puts needs of people and the planet before the profits of the few.
End Rip Off Ireland!!
Our Planet Before Profit Manifesto
For Radical Climate Action
Our planet is in danger from major climate damage that has already begun. If we do not act immediately, we will face extreme weather, flooding and intolerable heat in the very near future.
Carbon-fuelled capitalism is now the biggest threat facing humanity. The planet’s natural resources have been steadily depleted as corporations cut down rain forests, undermine bio-diversity and overheat the planet by releasing dangerous greenhouse gases into the atmosphere.
According to the International Panel on Climate Change, we have just over a decade to cut CO² emissions by 45% or face a dangerous tipping point that could make large sections of the earth uninhabitable. We are all vulnerable if these targets are not met, but we are not all equally responsible.
Our twin objectives are to reduce emissions and create a Just Transition for farmers, workers and ordinary families.
