Sky News is showing video of the Gardai removing a protester from outside the Dept. Taoiseach on Merrion st. The man is showing shouting something like "Democracy now! Election now!" before walking off. A female Garda follows him down the street and he is then grabbed and pulled to the ground by another Garda. At no point does he become violent.

Anyone see this? Sky is showing it every few minutes.

You did apparently. Do you suspect you might be hallucinating ? :confused:

Yet another overreaction by the guardians of the peace. People have the right to protest, good for him. I didn't see them grab him, did see him standing at the entrance to Gov Bldgs (I think), hands raised, shouting something (courtesy of SKY of course...lots of photographers snapping away around him)

The Garda better get used to arresting peaceful protesters. There's going to plenty of them if Cowen doesn't call an election. We're more like Zimbabwe every day.

It is a Public Order offence to speak against the government now.

They may need to send the Gardai on a crash course to update their skills if actual riots start.

We demand an election and so be it if Fianna FAIL get elected with the support of SinnFein, Greens ( doubt it ) and Independents.

Don't you know these are the signs of a one party state which we have now, and how is it british and foreign media get all these stories and we bloody live here and it takes days to see it on or media, another example of a one party state, control of the media.

The man was standing at the entrance to the building, the road entrance, with two cars trying to get in as he stood in front of them.

The bean garda followed him when he walked off, a male Garda cut him off. They tried arresting him but he kept his hands in the air. Eventually they pulled him to the ground.

Not a big assault or anything.

This will be the key to how the next phase plays out.

Lesson #1 : Do not go alone to protest, bring lots of friends, make sure there are women there too, and have lots of cameras rolling.

Immediately there are any unlawful moves by the protectors of ff post the video on youtube, and make official complaints. Name and shame.

We are going to have to learn and adapt really quickly people, bully tactics are all that is keeping us in check, our country needs us ;)

Live now on BBC News there are people throwing themselves before the government cars coming/going from government buildings.

BBC were interviewing a Trinity Professor live and you see it in the background.

Ah well, that's free speech for you.

Maybe that something that will be cut back on to.

Sign of the things to come.

In two and a half hours the deeds will be done, economic soverignity signed away, but we must take a leaf out of this protesters book, and do it in mass to remove FF from goverment.
