'As feminists and pro-Europeans from the community, politics, trade unions, academia, the media, and entertainment we reject the Europe proposed by the Lisbon Treaty and call on women to Vote No Again. '
Today women with a long track record in campaigning for communities and women's rights launched 'Women Say No to Lisbon- Again'.
Topics covered include the following from a press statment and more can be read at the web address below
' We refuse to be bullied into voting Yes because “Europe has been good for us” – we’re not voting on a track record. Nor are we voting to stay in the EU. We are voting on a treaty that firmly places the interests of business, not people, at the heart of the European project. Why else would the employers’ lobby, IBEC, welcome Lisbon’s Article 14 which, it says, provides “the legal basis for the increased liberalisation of services of general economic interest”, specifically health, education, transport, energy, environmental, and audio-visual services? Why else would massive anti-union corporations such as Intel and Ryanair spend hundreds of thousands of euros promoting a Yes?'
