Time to demand social justice

This country badly needs change. The only way it will happen is if the Irish people demand it. In the last 30 or 40 years, cronyism and corruption have become widespread and the people of this country have been failed.

After almost a hundred years of independence, nothing has changed. The 'peasants' still keep the fat cats in luxury. People need to demand change. Every parish across every county should hold a meeting and bring in their representatives from all parties and tell them the sort of country and society they want.

If these representatives don't deliver then don't vote them in again. This is about Irish people having a say in their country. It is not about begrudgery. It's about social justice.
