Date:

Thousands of people paraded through the streets of Dublin Saturday June 27th for LQBTQ Pride 2015.

Pride followed shortly after the overwhelming victory in the Marriage Equality referendum and some of the blocs and banners referenced that including a controveral 'Fuck Marriage; We want revenge" one.

One thing that was particularly noticeable this year was the participation of corporates who use Ireland as a tax avoidance shelter. Can they really be said to fit into an equality agenda when their tax avoidance serves to make millionaire share holders richer while starving health, education & welfare provision in Ireland and those countries they are avoiding paying tax in?
