Anti Bin Charges campaign enters week four
Mick O'Reilly and ATGWU strongly criticise Begg and ICTU on Bin Charges Stance
GARDAI HAVE arrested a further 12 anti-bin tax campaigners in Fingal. Three were arrested in Clonsilla and a further nine - including a husband and wife - were arrested in the Huntstown area. Two of those arrested appeared before the high court this afternoon, the rest are due to appear tomorrow. This is the latest Council manoeuvre against the Anti-Bin Tax Campaign. This follows the 5,000 strong solidarity demonstration outside Mountjoy Prison last night (Mon 22nd Sept), where Joe Higgins and Clare Daly are detained.
GARDAI HAVE arrested a further 12 anti-bin tax campaigners in Fingal. Three were arrested in Clonsilla and a further nine - including a husband and wife - were arrested in the Huntstown area. Two of those arrested appeared before the high court this afternoon, the rest are due to appear tomorrow. This is the latest Council manoeuvre against the Anti-Bin Tax Campaign. This follows the 5,000 strong solidarity demonstration outside Mountjoy Prison last night, where Joe Higgnis and Clare Daly are detained.
Six of those arrested are members of the Socialist Party. Some of those arrested today appeared on the Joe Duffy show on RTE Radio 1. Most of those interviewed said that they were willing to go to prison to defend their democratic rights. Among those arrested were a husband and wife who have three children. The husband, Stephen, has apologised and agreed to respect the injunction in order to look after their children. The government appears to think that by using strongarm tactics - similar those used against the workers of Dublin in 1913 - that the campaign will be cowed. This is not the case, as Cllr Ruth Coppinger said last night: "They will not be-head the campaign."
