Sarah Doherty tweetz:
“Last night, five XR [Extinction Rebellion] Ireland activists locked themselves to the gates of the Dail, resulting in their arrests. Twenty TDs were stuck inside until the early hours of the morning.
These activists had three demands:
– that the government enact the Climate Emergency Measures bill
– that the Shannon LNG project is ended
– that the government enact the recommendations of the Citizens Assembly on Climate Change
These people ranged from students to pensioners, and came from all over the country.
They were surrounded by friends, music, and love throughout 💚”
