Harney, Harney, Harney no cuts no cuts

Mary Harney TD Minister for Health and Children ... came under attack by thousands of angry demonstrators on Saturday 11th Oct 2008. They were shouting Harney, Harney, Harney no cuts no cuts. There were speeches at the end by family members whose their loved ones died, according to them, due to back cuts on health. They say that Brian Lenihan TD, Minister of Finance guaranteed all the major banks, while he had no money to improve the health service in the country! Where people don't have beds in the hospital and have to wait more than 1 or 2 days in the hall way to get bed in the ward.

الوف المتظاهرين جابوا شوارع العاصمة الايرلنية دبلن يوم السبت الموافق 11 اكتوبر 2008 وكانوا قد تظاهروا ضد سياسة وزيرة الصحة ماري هارني, في قطعها بعض الاموال على المستشفيات وبعض المرافق الصحية, وضمان البنوك من قبل وزير المالية الايرلندي وعدم ضخ هده الاموال في اصلاح الصحة التي في حالة من التخبط . وابدى المتظاهرون اندهاشهم بقدرة الحكومة على تامين المال الللازم للمصارف التي آلة للخسارة والمحافظة عليها وبسرعة فائقة, في حين ان الصحة تحتاج الى تلك الاموال ولا يمكن تامينها للمستشفيات. وقد انتهت المظاهرة بالسماع لممثلي العائلات اللاتي قد مات احداهن بسبب قلة العناية الصحية كما يزعمون وبسبب قلة المال في القطاع الصحي.
