Justice For Terence Wheelock Protest at Store Street Garda Station
Large crowds protest in support of a public inquiry into the death in Garda custody of Terence Wheelock.
One year on from the unexplained death of Terence Wheelock after his detention in Store Street Garda Station, his family, his community and the wider Irish public demand some meaningful answers. In that time, the gardaí have paid their respects by physically attacking the Wheelock family and continuing their harassement of youths from Dublin's east inner city. Lists of garda violence and other Human Rights abuses have been documented on indymedia.ie, but as yet, even those caught red-handed have been exhonerated by the Irish Justice System. However, the deaths of Brian Rossiter, John 'Johnner' Moloney, and Terence Wheelock, and the lack of accountability regarding numerous garda usage of lethal force, point to something very sinister among the ranks of the Guardians of the Peace, and a willingness to cover up, if not sanction it, within the Department of Justice.Around 350 people marched yesterday from Seán MacDermott St church down to Store Street Garda station, on the first anniversary of Terence Wheelock being arrested and subsequently being found unconscious in a cell. A short ceremony was held inside the church before the march, where the priest expressed his hopes that the family would find truth, justice, freedom, and finally peace with their sons death. Members of the family and close friends were visibly upset during the 20 minute church ceremony, where music was played and a candle was lit in remembrance of Terence.
The march made its way down Gardiner Street and around by the LUAS tracks in front of Store Street Garda station. Laurence Wheelock again made the call for an independent inquiry into his brother's death. Floral tributes were left on the fence of the station. There was no visible Garda presence whatsoever around the station during the protest outside. The crowd was also addressed by Joe Costello of Labour and Mary Lou McDonald of Sinn Fein, who urged the family to continue their campaign, and who both commended the family on the dignified nature of their protests in the face of continuing Garda intimidation. Complementary photo essay of the demonstration Bright sunshine greeted a large community protest against the State's continuing refusal to arrange a proper, independent public inquiry into the circumstances surrounding the death of Terence Wheelock. Terence was arrested in early June last year and brought to Store Street Garda Station, from where, a number of hours later he was taken to the Mater Hospital. He died from his injuries in September.
After a brief service at Seán McDermott Street Church, the large crowd walked to Store Street Garda Station.
