Riot police at Anglo Irish Bank
Whats up people,
I'm one of the two people being brought to court over the clashes, i've been charged under section 6 of the public order act....
Can any one who's been in a similiar situation give me some advice
My case is on in the dublin district court on thur, nov 18th.
The Garda Síochána Ombudsman Commission has begun investigations into the Garda's policing of a student demonstration on Wednesday at which sections of protestors clashed violently with gardaí.
The ombudsman commission, which investigates complaints against gardaí, has received 10 complaints from members of the public about the Garda's tactics on the day.
Joe Higgins MEP of the Socialist Party today questioned the Garda's tactics.
"The use of Garda horses and dogs against student protestors in Dublin on Wednesday is an outrageous abuse of the right to protest. The intention was clearly to intimidate peaceful protestors and it is an utter scandal They should never again be used against protestors."
Hope your doing ok.
There were a few people charged up here in Mayo with Section 6.
Section 6 of the Public Order Act can be found here:
You can find how a public place is defined here if it's of any use to you.
If your looking for some more advice send an email to email@example.com or the WSM in Dublin might be able to help.
...because of their superior training and weapons.
TO those Guards reading, and those who were pleased by their actions, well done on this occasion. You can smile, and relax in the knowledge that those peaceful protestors haven't a hope against your power. You killed their stupid trust in democratic protections as they sat there with heads exposed to your shields and batons, and in doing so you probably did the future a favour. The era of peaceful protest in Ireland is drawing to a close.
In the meantime, enjoy your triumph.
And take care. Because you people just lost the war.
You have joined a special group of honorable decent Irish people that have the courage to stand up against criminals.
Fianna Fail have for decades developed insidious ways and means to line their own pockets at the expense of the Irish people.
They know that some of their crimes are being discovered so have used their power to turn a once respected police force into criminals.
To smash a steel baton down on the head of sitting students that are not able to protect themselves is a crime.
It takes a special type of coward who knows that he is sanctioned by the corrupt state to do this.
Many people in Rossport have been assaulted by these so called keepers of the peace, then charged in the courts by the same criminals who have no problems in commiting another crime of perjury.
To be charged in court by these people is no disgrace to you but it is to them.
In spite of the media campaign to demonise the students more people are discovering who the real troublemakers are.
I hope that you will be strong , proud and justified in the fact that you had the right to protest and it was the Gardai commited the crime not you.
I am afraid you may be right when you say the era of peaceful protest in Ireland is drawing to a close. It will take a while longer, but judging by the inability of the opposition(never mind the governors) to learn from their fuckups it looks like full steam ahead for a thirty-two county Ulster.
Everyone knows its broke, but no-one will face the fact its SYSTEMIC. Or if they do they are falling back on the nineteenth century ideological simplification of Marx and forgetting that while there is a bambino in that analysis, there is also a considerable tub of filthy bathwater.
We're strill trying to solve 21st century GLOBAL crises with nineteenth century NATIONAL reaction. The 1930s was the rehearsal(and after the collision of the WW ll contenders for imperial dominance an effort was made to establish global structures to avoid a recurrence).
That UN infrastructure has been sidelined by US unilateralism, and that the corporate state(central to fascist ultra-nationalist chauvenism)IS the New World Order is as plain as the irony-free Ireland Inc mantra long-swallowed and accepted by the indoctrinated and numerologically dazzled public.
Hard to be optimistic. Already the boneheads are (or is it more false-flag black ops?) chucking the geli round up above. Can't see beyond the green blinkers. Marry that to the hardware floating round the criminal opportunists and the blue-shirt agenda of Law&Order(their law, their order) is already sliding down the barrel.
Hope I'm rong. And I hope thats not a note of relish, Marcus, for belligerent confrontation. As yiou say, they do have the hatdware, training, and outside backup to ensure we dont stray to far from the axis Willy Brandt forecast in his 1980 North/South report. Prescient man.
The behavior of the Gardai was shocking, especially when that young woman was dropped on the
concrete footpath head first. This could have been a deadly assault, just like Ian Tomlinson in London
Why should a public servant be allowed to strike a member of the public with an iron bar.
Because there the mother f*#%ing police and they can
Jonny, I'm in a group called Students in Solidarity, we were the ones who occupied the department of finance. If you need help, I can put you in touch with people who would not a lot more about the public order act than I would. My email is firstname.lastname@example.org
