The concept of this tour is a simple yet effective one: to make real the abstract nature of globalised finance by undertaking a journey through the streets where it conducts its business. It is also, at the same time, a walk through Irish history, from the War of Independence to today’s world of transnational capital. This walking tour will take you along locations from Liberty Hall into the North and South Docklands. The tour is facilitated by Financial Justice Ireland (formerly Debt and Development Coalition Ireland) a global financial justice organisation working for a fair and just society for everyone, in collaboration with CATU (Community Action Tenants Union), AFRI Action From Ireland, former SIPTU Tutor & labour historian Mags O’Brien & researcher Conor McCabe.
The 5pm meeting point for this tour is the James Connolly Statue, Beresford Place, Dublin 1.
