@OxfamIreland⁩ reveal obscene wealth generated by irelands billionaires' in pandemic as workers hammered by spiralling cost of living. Rightly they demand solidarity wealth & windfall tax on super profits of corps and energy companies. @pb4p agree! https://t.co/AdlWxRq8hh

Full solidary to the #medicalscientist out on strike earlier this week. If their demands are not met they may be out again next week, and we will support them. https://t.co/WjW3RyNbrr

Cost of student accomodation is THE BIGGEST BARRIER to education in this country. How will we get the healthcare workers we need, teachers we need, engineers we need, psychologists we need etc, if the housing crisis is preventing them accessing education? https://t.co/xHsUAeLkKi

Dáil has just voted to ensure public and secular NMH. The opposite to what the cabinet agreed yesterday. Gov must respect Dáil vote. #NMHSellOut #MakeNMHOurs. https://t.co/2Wfj4R1vPG

Outside St. Michael’s Hospital this afternoon with @MelisaHalpin and #MedicalScientists. These workers deserve pay parity that they were promised two decades ago. inaction by successive governments means 20% of their posts are not filled. Gov must give them #equalpayforequalwork https://t.co/nl6gzjike4

Outside St. Vincent's Hospital today with the striking #MedicalScientists. These hidden heroes have been been forced into striking as the HSE refuses to listen to them. "What we just want is equal pay. That's it." @MedLabAssoc https://t.co/FLfeGLdzPi

Shockingly, the government is proposing to literally subsidising private developers RATHER than helping end the housing crisis. These same sort of policies caused the crash in 2008. This really is beyond belief. https://t.co/gfGlJilcOD

Full solidarty with the medical scientists on strike today demanding pay equality that was recommended in 2001. Failure to give pay parity to this group of workers means that now 20% of posts are unfilled. The government must intervene as a matter of urgency #MedicalScientists https://t.co/a7oBI93JpP

The abhorrent actions of the Israeli Forces by killing and then attacking the funeral of Shireen Abu Aqleh must have consequences. https://t.co/sTuWU4oSjE

Honoured to sign the book of condolences for Shireen Abu Aqleh at the Mission of the State of Palestine. https://t.co/S8SwsOt7Zb

"Fine Gael, the Greens and Fianna Fáil, We Can't Afford to Live at All!" Brilliant turnout for the Cost Of Living protest outside the Dáil! All out on the 18th June.

Isreal is an apartheid state and it should be treated as such. The recent murder of Palestinian journalist Shireen Abu Akleh and the further brutality that followed at the hands of the IDF is a stark example of Israel's crimes against Palestine and the Palestinian people. https://t.co/7jh3OTAadA

Tonight the Dáil passed a motion saying the National Maternity Hospital should be on public land. Government abstained, but they plan to push on with their awful deal. The message to the Govt is clear. Respect the vote. Listen to the women of Ireland. End the #NMHSellOut

Very important statement from 2 members of HSE Board who dissented to decision on National Maternity Hospital. "boards also influence the culture, values and ethics of the entity they govern, and this gives rise to legitimate concerns end for us about... ethos." #MakeNMHOurs
