Gardai this morning arrested four men at different addresses in the Tallaght area and brought them to Tallaght and Rathfarnham garda stations for questioning.
Yesterday two men, a woman, and a 16-year-old boy were arrested and questioned and later released without charge with files being prepared for the Director of Public Prosecutions

Like clockwork the state repression of the anti water charges movement continues this morning with additional arrests being reported in Tallaght. In one case no less than eight police turned up in the early morning to arrest a 14 year old boy.
We are not sure yet on numbers (update: 4 arrested) but presumably there will have once more been four attempted arrests continuing the pattern set the previous two mornings. This is the calculated and deliberate intimidation of an entire community in punishment for a Labour Party minister spending two hours in a car on the one hand. And on the other it is designed to scare all those across the country who have opposed government policies into silence.
A protest has been called for 6.30 Thursday evening outside the Department of Justice on Stephen’s Green. Let’s make sure it is a massive one that tells the state Enough!
