RTÉ are reporting that the Afghan hunger strikers who have been occupying St Patrick's Cathedral since last weekend have been removed by Gardaí. The minors have been transferred to the custody of the HSE, while the remainder are in Garda custody.
RTÉ reports that the protestors did not leave voluntarily, but did not resist their removal.

More on RTÉ Online.

A great victory over the PC-brigade, the radical leftists, the commies, and the dogooders! Up the Gardai! :)

It was a victory over probably most Socialists except maybe of the Rabbitte variety though I dunno.

Now they know we are not to be trifled with! :)

Interesting to note that when it went to the wire this lot allowed themselves to be led out like lambs.

What happened to all these so called determined men who were going to jump with ropes around their necks? :oops:

Looks like the whole thing was one big spoof, backed on the outside by the RAR and it's fellow travellers.

Well done ye, Catalpa, FutureTaoiseach, etc. you've achieved a real victory today. We owe a great debt to people like ye who aren't afraid to get out and make a stand, to get out there and belittle and insult vulnerable people when no-one else is brave enough to do it. Molaim sibh :wink:

Well at least it ended peacefully. Now the whinging and the crowing begins. So will RAR and the other fringe elements continue to support them or will they find a new cause du jour? I just find the whole thing to be a remarkably cynical exploitation. Though once the Taliban stuff surfaced, it seemed to become rather difficult to sustain what little public sympathy that the protest had.

I've been in the Taliban since 1971, and I still enjoy full public sympathy.

What's "vunerable"?

I don't accept they were particularly vulnerable.

They were in a foreign (to them) country, on hunger-strike, in danger of being deported back to a violent war-torn Afghanistan, and probably not totally sure whether or not they were doing the right thing.
In my book, the concise Oxford dictionary of the English language, 3rd edition, Oxford 1966, thats pretty vulnerable.

So would you agree that they were exploited by both sides?

I don't think anyone has ever been deported to Afghanistan from this country. Also under the Dublin Convention you can be removed to a previous EU state you entered. There are no direct flights between our 2 countries and as such, even if deported they would not be in danger. They chose to bring themselves to a foreign country btw. They also chose to put themselves through the hunger-strike.

This has been a fantastic night - down with the PC-brigade. FT, it has been a great victory over the lefties, Rosanna Flynn and the do-gooders.

Now, what's the bets tougher Asylum regulations are on the way? I'd say changes are inevitable.

NorthCountyLeader, for an ultra lefty - you are taking your defeat in good humour - good to see. I bet you these guys have shafted their chances of winning their appeals - they shouldn't be rewarded for this kind of stunt! I'm delighted at the damage this has done to RAR - absolutely ecstatic - their image is ruined by their obvious role in this farce.
