Cost of living protest to take place at the Dail
Senior Citizens, single parents, workers and students will stage a Dail protest today over the cost of living crisis.
The groups, which form part of the newly formed Cost of Living Coalition, will demand Government action on energy, food and housing costs.
They want people to join them and bring copies of their household bills.
The Senior Citizens Parliament says older people on pensions can no longer cope with spiralling prices.
CEO Sue Shaw says the voice of pensioners is not being heard by the government.
“The reality is for that many people across the life cycle, from younger people through to our members who are pensioners, they now believe that the government is not hearing them, that there hasn’t been enough effort made to support them with their fears, which are genuine every day fears that they feel.”
