    Made it into 48 seconds. A lot more work needed even for a trailer, you can start with cutting the first 10 seconds of darkness.

    Sorry, I hate to jump on someone being creative etc… but this is bollocks.. is it just a load of the soundbites we’ve seen replayed hundreds of times over the past 10 years?

    A perfect juxtaposition of the past and present.

    1916 – People take to the streets to demand equality and freedom from tyranny
    2015 – People take the street to demand free stuff

    It would be much more relevant to show the marriage equality demonstrations and posters rather than the Free Water for Wasters posters.

      You’ve been beating that same drum for months now and no-one is following in your pathetic dance.

      Eh, what tyranny?

      In 1916, there was a parliament (albeit a UK parliament) with elected representatives, there was local government, there were courts, there was a civil service and there was rule of law.

      If that’s tyranny, well blow my brains out now!

      Ireland in 1916 was not a tyranny. This is a classic case of the great Irish myth of ‘800 years of suppression’ which of course was nonsense. Sadly there are people (Sinn Fein) who still confuse propaganda with history.

        The Irony is, someone who claims to be a frenchman giving out about the campaign of a country to become a republic.

        What a load of bollox.

        The people of many oppressed nations are ruled by a parliament, even an elected parliament.

        You might want to learn your history, instead of trolling.

        I’ll see your union jack themed underwear and raise you a Famine and the Penal laws.

    5 minutes of my life I won’t get back.

    There are issues with the Gardai, every police force goes through scandal. But one thing I am certain of is that no member of An Garda Siochana would leave a child in their house on their own.

    I have made this point time and time again, but here goes: O’Connell street is 500m long by 50m wide. That’s 25,000 m/sq. For 50,000 people to fit on that street requires a density of 2 people per m/sq. 4 is a mosh pit so we can assume that 2 is an upper limit. 50,000 people, with 20,000-30,000 more likely is not the “beginning” of any kind of movement especially when 100,000+ have gone before it last November.

    We are now beginning to see the entrenchment of group-think in the water protest movement. At every march they are being deluded into thinking that their movement is advancing, that more people are joining it and that their chances of success are increasing. Nothing could be further from the truth.

    Have fun with it anyway.

    Is this a montage type documentary drawing comparisons between then and now…. if it is, there’s issues already, as pointed out above.

    Nice production though…. not sure what it is trying or will try to do…

    Of me twelve brothers only one survived, that was a record in our parish, where at Christmas, if we were lucky, we ate the discarded shoes of our betters, boiled in the dung of the village goat.
