I have set up a Facebook group titled 'No to Nama'. We really need to get the ball rolling, and I dont think the Property Pin reaches enough people. :!:

I have committed a modest EUR110 to place ads for the new group targeting Irish facebook users. :!:

This is the link http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=233861925262

Join the group and forward to all your Facebook friends. I need people to get involved and become admins for the Group. I dont have any experience in the political or protesting realm. But hopefully the new Facebook group will become a conduit for spreading the message rapidly to the general Irish public.

I literally just rejoined facebook 5 minutes ago after a long hiatus.

Your problem here is the anonymity that people desire on the 'pin.

I may or may not have joined :nin

The title of this post is misleading!

I thought it meant Facebook refused to host a Nama group!

How about "No to Nama" group on Facebook??

Yes....

This has being rolling around my head a while now.. i.e Nama with marked to mkt now, Government NAMA Vs Free mkt, that whole debate..

My stance has being I dont have a problem NAMA if the Assets are marked to market now..But I am a firm believer that their shoudl be no government intervention.. free mkt etc..

Good Idea Leonard..




However

If NAMA was paying market value then the banks could sell to the market instead. NAMA exists to overpay. Attack NAMA.

The first 48 hours of the Facebook group have been extremely successfully. We now have 184 members and we can already see the exponential growth occurring as new members invite their Facebook friends to join.

One more person has become an admin for the Group and one more person has funded a second Facebook advertising campaign. I have posted extracts of media coverage and article links on the group's discussion board to raise awareness among Facebook users of the potential negative consequences of NAMA, and raise awareness of the alternatives that exist to the current NAMA approach.

While the Facebook group is not directly organising the protest, we are confident that once the protest arrangements are finalised, we will be in a position to communicate the details to a listing of thousands of like-minded people instantly.

In this current period essential state services are being cut (e.g. cancer treatment service in Sligo, problems at the Crumlin hospital) putting lives in risk.
Cancer treatments are being cut in Sligo due to a rationalisation of the way cancer care is provided, on the back of a lot of expert clinical evidance, it has never been presented as an expenditure issue, rather as a method of gathering clinical expertise in viable clusters with the critical mass of patients required to facilitate the growth of real expertise (i.e. experience). Whether you agree with the strategy or not, lumping it in with name and expenditure cuts only confuses the issue and demonstates a lack of understanding of the issues in each case.

you should contact the group owner of Stop Nama http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=129184484427

seems a bit pointless having two groups with the same aim
