    Countdown to the protestors being marginalised in the comments for their accents, education or social status in 5… 4… 3…

    400-500 protesters, according to Gardai, which probably means the real number was a factor of that. Organisers had expected a couple of hundred to attend.

    There have been nightly protests outside Garda stations against political policing across the State since last Monday; none reported by national media.

      people hanging about and shouting outside garda stations is not news . hence, it is not reported. there is no conspiracy here, move along.

    thank God we live in a democracy where you can gather in large numbers and protest.

    thank God we live in a democracy where we have laws and a police force that protect the larger population from those who wish to abuse the freedom they are given

        jump in front of a moving politicians car and become outraged when you are moved out of the way.
        that’s the problem with these folk , don’t understand consequence

          A woman is wrestled to the ground on the public highway by some costumed goons in order to protect the vanity of a Bankster puppet, even though she is completely within her rights on the same public highway (motor vehicles, under the law, have no rights on the public highway and only travel under license).

          These are the so-called Guardians of the Peace who can’t even arrest a child unless there’s 9 others as back up.

            can I just go sit in the road right now and expect the world to move around me?

            sounds reasonable :-)

            As long as you’re not interfering with anybody else’s right to travel the public highway and you’re not invading anybody’s dwelling then a temporary rest stop should be fine. Animals have more right to the public highway than motor vehicles, even the vehicles containing gormless politicians.

            Re animals – no, they don’t.

            Dogs must be kept on a leash or under control in public places at all times.

            Cats less so, admittedly but tend not to use the roads as much.

            Cows and domestic farm animals must not be allowed on the road unsupervised by two people at any time. That’s the actual law Mr Sock Puppets Name (who waffles on about other alleged ‘puppets’ constantly).
