    So many [insert hate speech label] people in the one place eh? Imagine that.

    No doubt Richard Boyd Barrett and Paul Murphy (and their handlers) were having a pro snitch/ lockdown counter demonstration elsewhere- in someone’s back garden I expect.

      Vaccine passports have been on the go for hundreds of years. Following widespread small pox outbreaks vaccine passports were introduced in the US in 1800’s. You needed them to travel or get a job. You can’t travel to West Africa and numerous other places without various vaccine proofs. Please tell me what’s new here?

        You have never ever had to use a vaccine passport to go to cafes, restaurants, cinemas, bars, hotels, etc. never in history has this happened.

        These covid vaccines do not stop transmission so any benefit is only for the person taking it but covid is not a danger to most of us – it’s only a risk to a small minority of people. It’s very different to small pox and so are these vaccines.

        on top of that these covid vaccines have not completed their clinical trials and do not until 2023 so they are still experimental and we have zero long term safety data on them.

        Can you see now what’s very new here?

    That’s so depressing. March of the cretins. Though am rather impressed that so many of them managed to leave their basements.

    Great to see so many out supporting freedom, ethics, truth and science.

    Hopefully many more will see through the propaganda and have the courage to resist this ongoing tyranny.

      It is sad to see the brainwashed and gullible, anti-vaxxers, “freedumbz”, knuckle dragging fools on O’Connell St. metaphorically urinating on the heads of the selfless Health Care workers.

      Still it is excellent, despite the best efforts of the anti-medical science conspiracy theory aggregator BS, including the weak minded gullible anti-vaxxer crew on BS, completely failing to have any influence on the vast majority of their fellow citizens.

      I expect the usual pathetic little crew of BS anti-vaxxer posters, will again go uselessly ballistic tapping their keyboards over the next few weeks depending on how the B.1.1.529 variant pans out. At least their posts will give the National Surveillance Unit something to laugh at during coffee break.

        You have just shown how ignorant you are. You actually think we are all anti-vaxxers because the media and government has told you so. This couldn’t be further from the truth. They are lying to you. This is classic divide and conquer and you are just as much of a victim as I am.

        I’m not even a tiny bit anti-vaccine as are the majority of the people who attended the protest. It was not an anti-vax protest – it’s a protest against the digital passport system, against mandatory vaccines, against coercion, against lies, against propaganda.

        All you have is ignorant slurs, ad hominem or strawman arguments backed up with zero data. You should really read up on the scientific studies, the raw data, and our points of view because you haven’t a clue.

        And BTW there’s plenty of health care works, doctors, and scientists at the protest who agree with what we stand for.

        It is a lot easier to con people than it is to convince them that they’ve been conned. Yours is a case in point John.

    Great to see such a good turnout. There’s been a definite shift in public opinion the past couple of weeks. Wedge points to focus on are boosters (still for Wuhan variant) and vaxx and masks for kids. Turn Irish parents against this agenda as they come for the kids. Turn young Irish off boosters. The more young males we can bring into the fold, the better placed we’ll be when things get “rough”.

      I hope it’s not a case of too little too late because it is worrying now, but as the Greeks say: Hope dies last.

    Morons on the March.

    Polls continually show the vast majority of people don’t support these far right extremists.

    1. Ronnie

      It’s wrong to label all these people “Far Right Extremists”. While I might not totally agree with them, they have every right to protest and they come from all walks of life in our society. Ironically your comment makes you seem more far right here.

    2. Cui Bono?

      They’re not far right.

      You only think this because the government media have labelled them as this. That’s how propaganda works.
