People Before Profit Alliance flash mob protest at Ulster Bank College Green today
Tina MacVeigh People Before Profit representative in Dublin South Central said, “It is scandalous that one of the biggest banks in the country has not processed payments on client accounts for the past 48 hours. People have not recieved wages and social welfare payments and are also reporting that other payments registered to their accounts before the ‘technical difficulties’ have now disappeared. This is putting people under huge stress at a time when ordinary people have faced savage cuts to wages, services and jobs.
When we voted on the EU Fiscal Treaty we were assured that a Yes Vote would bring stability. However, when banks are allowed to conduct their affairs in the interest of their wealthy shareholders and go unregulated by the state, there is a collapse of prudence and responsibility in the financial sector.
It is the ordinary people, yet again, who pay the price.”
