Gardai direct traffic and arrest protestors
While an MEP explains the doubtful legality of the construction work taking place at Tara, Revolt Video get the workers on film, engaging in activities of even more doubtful legality. The guardians of the peace wade in and arrest 7 protestors, including a professor of specializing in Medieval Irish Studies at the University of Maynooth who had presented them with a letter from the EU commission.
As a rumoured additional 20 diggers are told to be arriving onsite, the public step up their protest in protecting Soldier Hill, attracting the likes of University Professors, International delegates on Tourism and EU Member of Parliaments to rush to the scene in aid of the protest.
By 12:30pm at least 5 people were arrested for obstructing the construction, including Muirfeann Ni Bhrolchain, a Professor specializing in Medieval Irish Studies at the University of Maynooth. She had arrived on site with copies of a letter from the EU Commission, proving that "the European Court of Justice has recognised the decisions to approve project may unfold in more thant one stage and that it may be inappropriate to limit the possibility of EIA to an early stage as as new circumstances and new factors may arise at the time of a second stage decision" and that in the discovery of LIsmullin, " the National Monuments Act, 2004 makes no provision for (second stage) EIA in relation to decisions allowing for destruction of national monuments that were unknown at the time of a first - stage EIA."
