The next Great Natural Resources Robbery public meeting, Dublin, October 28

12088272_1067192153293201_6789390201332365049_nThe next ‘Great Natural Resources Robbery!’ public talk will take place at 8pm in the Mill Theatre, Dundrum, Dublin 16 on Wednesday, Oct 28th.

Main Speaker: Brian Leeson  (Cathaoirleach éirígí)

Through a detailed breakdown of the multi-billion euro industries that are based on Irish minerals, building materials, natural gas, fisheries, farming, forestry, renewable energies and other resources this presentation will expose the myth of Ireland being a country with very limited natural resources.

But this presentation doesn’t just doesn’t just list Ireland’s natural resources, it explores who actually benefits from the highly profitable industries that have been built upon them. In doing so it exposes the ongoing multi-billion euro plunder of Ireland’s resources by Irish and foreign private corporations, including their efforts to avoid paying tax on their vast profits.

Past experience of how Ireland’s natural resources have been exploited should give everyone grave concern for the future of our vast fresh water reserves. This experience, of course, sets the backdrop for the current attempts to introduce a domestic Water Tax.

The story of Ireland’s natural resources is a story of theft, political corruption, shortsightedness, privatisation and missed opportunity.

But it is also a story of hope for the future.

All welcome to this free event. Bígí linn.
