March for International Day Against Nuclear Tests – A Disaster
Sligo council members declared the commemoration of the United Nations International Day Against Nuclear Tests “a f**king disaster”. The day was marked by a march late last month on August 29th.
Details are only coming out now but it’s understood that no members of the public turned out for the protest from the docks to the courthouse. Two lone council members walked the route and carried a banner between them declaring their support for the United Nations day.
“It was a poor showing both from the other elected members and from the public at large,” declared an irate representative. “The so-called media didn’t show up, it’s nothing but a f**king disaster,” he added. “The UN secretary general called for an end to this dangerous impasse and we’ve basically ignored the call. Today I’m ashamed to be a Sligo man.”
Referring to other county councils the councillor continued, “them lot over there in Roscommon declared that county would always be nuclear free and that was decades ago and here we’ve done nothing”. In the 1980s Sligo’s near neighbour declared itself to be a nuclear free zone to a collective sigh of relief from various world powers.
Scientists at the Institute of Technology have tried, but so far failed, to predict the level of fallout those Rossie boys would encounter if Sligo ever goes off. Especially if there was a strong westerly wind and equally after a large meaty meal the night before and a big fry in the morning.
