UPDATE: Protestors clash with Gardai outside the National Convention Centre, Dublin this evening. Three arrests have been made.

 “I was standing at the barricades in front of the Convention c Centre, when around 15 Guards burst out from behind us and chased protesters down the street, targeting known activists…Many of my friends were injured and left in a state of shock by these actions. It was indefensible.”

Bridget, a member of Black Bloc [A collective seeking to combat austerity ‘through the re-appropriation of housing, goods and services’] this evening.
