Who are the 1%?
We have all heard of the ‘golden circle’. We all know that there is one law for the rich and another law for the rest of us. But did you know that just 1% of the population are estimated to own at least 34% of the wealth of the country? Property developers, landlords, bankers, barristers, media tycoons, and politicians are amongst this 1% that own so much but contribute so little.

More Cutbacks? Make the 1% Pay!
In next December’s budget the government are going to further slash funding for health, education, housing and social welfare. Yet again the poor are to be made pay for the greed of the rich. It’s time for the 1% to start paying for the mess that they have created.

The Heartland of the Golden Circle
Like nowhere else in Ireland the districts of Dublin 2 and Dublin 4 are littered with the landmarks of the power and wealth of the 1%. Banks, private mansions and corporate headquarters sit side by side in the heartland of the ‘golden circle’.

A Political Tour – A Demand for Justice
On Saturday October 9th a political walking tour through Dublin 2 and Dublin 4 will take place. The tour aims to highlight the deep injustice at the heart of Irish society, an injustice which allows the 1% to remain relatively untouched while millions of ordinary people across Ireland face unemployment, poverty, debt, homelessness and despair.

Join the Tour – See How the 1% Lives
The tour is open to everybody. It starts at 2pm, will cover 3km and finish around 4pm. Come along and add your voice to the demand for a just solution to the current economic crises – a solution that will see the 1% paying their fair share.
