Cobh Says No to Austerity statement on Garda violence

Press statement on last nights Garda violence as approved by Cobh Says No to Austerity committee and reps today:

Cobh Says No to Austerity strongly condemns the vicious attack by Gardai on peaceful anti-water charges protesters in Dublin last night.

Spokesperson Karen Doyle said “Our contingent at the Right2Water protest had been among the many thousands unable to join the main rally yesterday due to the Gardai’s unnecessarily strict restrictions on access to Dáil Éireann. We made a collective decision to participate in the blocking of O’Connell Street before getting our bus home so we therefore have first-hand knowledge of the completely peaceful nature of those involved in that civil disobedience.”

Mrs Doyle went on to say “What happened later that evening was a completely unacceptable provocation that can only have been authorised at the highest levels of the State and exposes them yet again as no friends of working people and our democratic rights to peaceful civil disobedience.”
