IRISH SENIOR CITIZENS PARLIAMENT PROTEST

21 October 2013

The CIE pensioners association as an affiliate of the Irish Senior Citizens parliament are requesting TSSA members to support the protest rally. Many ex TSSA members will be hit hard as a result of the Budget attacks on senior citizens. Many TSSA members will have family and friends impacted by these cuts.

 

Since Budget Day it has become clear that the old, the sick, the poor and young people who are unemployed have been worse affected.

Older People have been affected by

  • the further reduction on the Over 70 Medical Card Limit
  • the increase to €2.50 on the prescription charge
  • the Ending of the Telephone Allowance
  • the Ending of the Bereavement Grant

Many of the measures will also hit current members close to retirement. It is important to make a stand to ensure senior citizens are treated with dignity.

We ask TSSA members to support the protest rally against
