It's a bit hard to make a complent on the basis of what you have posted. Would be better to give at least a tiny amount of specific info around which the complent could be formed.

i hear the truck in santry was removed last night - is this true?

author by Evepublication date Tue Sep 23, 2003 14:29author address author phone Report this post to the editors

The Trucks in Santry and River Valley have been returned to the Council. I saw the Council completing work successfully there today.

Apparently, the protesters at Santry were already packing up their belongings before the Gards arrived so it seems there isn't much heart for carrying on.

I have just been on the phone to Joe Mooney, Secretary of the Anti-Bin Tax campaign, and he asked to pass on the word asking anybody who is free in the afternoon to go down to the High Court (Four Courts) where some of those arrested will appear.

Wife of one of the arrested on. Says those arrested were walking slowly in front of the bin lorry. He is now in Bridewell.

RTE Web site reporting
"Nine more people have been arrested in the Huntstown area of Blanchardstown in West Dublin in relation to anti bin tax protests. The nine, and two of three men arrested earlier this morning in Fortlawn, Clonsilla, are due to appear before the High Court this afternoon."

This is an outrage!! The government, the council, the courts - can simply not be allowed to get away with this.

Just tuned in again and Joe Duffy has a live interview with those arrested and waiting to go into the High Court. Arrested include a husband and wife with 3 kids being looked after at home by their grandmother. They are trying to decide which one will go to jail and which will purge contempt to go home and look after children.

Several of those held say they are willing to go to prison.

Husband and wife are called Stephen and Tracey. Stephen saying that for financial reasons he will purge contempt and wife will go to prison (she works part time). Tracy says she is prepared to go to prison, "he has to earn the money to pay for the morgage". She went out this morning to protest, did no to expect to be arrested. She says she has never even been at a bin charges meeting, this morning was the first time to protest. She is "prepared to stand up for what is right".

Thanks for all the reports Andrew. At work, so cant tune in.

Ahhh, capitalism at it finest - being exposed on national radio.

Hats off to all those who have been prepared to get arrested and go to jail for what they believe in.

Wish we all had the same courage & conviction.

Unfortunately for you, the great Irish people do not see this dispute on the grand scale of Capitalism versus whatever Communism or whatever.

The will see it as merely a local dispute over council charges and get on with enjoying the wealth this country is now affording them.
