This document from the Anti-Austerity Alliance from 2015 is the first to be added to the Archive from AAA.
As noted, the AAA:
…was formed, as the Anti-Austerity Alliance, in 2014 to combat increasing cuts to services after the economic crisis in Ireland. Its membership includes the Socialist Party (SP) and all Socialist Party candidates run under the AAA banner, though it also has non-SP local councillors and members.
In the 2016 General Election, the party formed an electoral alliance with People Before Profit (PBP), with the joint entity (Anti-Austerity Alliance – People Before Profit (AAA-PBP)) winning six seats, of which three are Solidarity (and also SP) members.
It adopted the new name of Solidarity in 2017.
As an electoral vehicle AAA was notably successful.
This poster dates from the Marriage Equality Referendum period in 2015 and makes a direction connection between voting for Marriage Equality and voting against austerity at the then forthcoming election in 2016.
