You are right, they are not exactly comparable.
The Councillors claimed to be very intimidated by the protestors, that is undemocratic. If they want to protest they should be dignified and let democracy takes its course.
There is a certain irony in someone who expects to be heard in an assembly to which he wasn't elected, trying to prevent people from being heard in an assembly to which they HAVE been elected.Pocket borough inheritor of an MEPship isn't he?
Better to break the law than break the poor. It is absolutely legitimate to disrupt the antics of local councillors who support this robbery of working class people. Public protest brought the current democratic rights into existance and public protest will preserve those rights.You are right, they are not exactly comparable.
Murphy is doing more than making noise though, he is impeding democracy.
That is something that should not be interfered with.
Long time since the Gardai cracked any heads with the Ombudsman and over zealous solicitors hanging round.
Aaron Nolan (aged 19) - currently in hospital after head being smashed against wall by plainclothes Garda:
A stocky man, with a light blue hoody, who I thought was one of the protesters grabbed me and pushed me against the wall. He then grabbed my head with his two hands and smashed my head against the wall. I fell on the ground and when I was on the ground, he choked me with his two hands. I was dazed and unable to stand as he handcuffed me.
That is why we have elections.Better to break the law than break the poor. It is absolutely legitimate to disrupt the antics of local councillors who support this robbery of working class people.
The Property Tax is a further attempt to inflict the crisis of the capitalist system onto working class people while the richest 10% of the population continue to increase their wealth.
