Dublin taxi demonstration 2
What do we want?
Caps on cab numbers.
The minister may not care,the regulator may not care, so brothers and sisters we must care for each other.
As many as 15 taxi drivers have taken their lives since this dispute started. We are all here together, talk to each other.
I have lived in Spain there is only one union there. We have 4 and not one of them are here today.
What qualifications does the regulator hold to justify her salary?
There is no point in coming to this office again she says she has now power.
There is no point in marching to the Dail on Monday either,they don't sit on Mondays
Minister you might not listen to us, but you will hear us next week.
Bring your partners and kids, deregulation is another word for anarchy, where no rules apply.
Deregulation is when builders build houses with no infrastructure, schools, shops or churches.Pushing the prices higher by the day.Putting homes beyond reach saddling our children with 40 year mortgages, because no one shouted stop.
When the same builders bubble burst the government baled out the wealthy bankers, while taxi drivers homes are being reposessed.
Hundreds of taxis are being rented out by the week, who knows who is driving them.
The public should ask am I safe?
This from dublintaxi.ie
The wonderful lady taxi driver(I use the word lady loosely)who gave the taxi drivers the fingers was given a ticket for smoking in a PSV and for incitement.
Kinda spoils her day.
John McDonough a New York taxi driver tells us what a scab is.
The fight continues
