Hill of Tara - Do not give up!

Four in Prison
With four people now imprisoned and the bulldozers about to desecrate sacred land of Tara some say this might be the end-but it couold be the beginning. Where do we go from here?
We recently made a complaint to RTE Television, Cork, regards the lack of coverage on the Hill of Tara Campaign. The Irish state is in the process of running a motorway through an ancient sight where the High Kings of Celtic Ireland were once crowned. It appears clear from their attitude and lack of proper coverage that the mainstream media is staying well clear of the real issues behind this campaign. We tried our best yesterday to inform all mainstream media and were , to say the least , disappointed at their coverage. The TV media gave the impression that the protestors were in the wrong and did not go into the reasons why they were willing to give up thier liberty. The Irish people are not getting the true story of what is hapenning. Not only do we have to fight apathy but disinformation and non information. Four people now languish in Irish prisons, their only crime?They tried to stop an illegal act-the desecration of Holy Land, to Celts to the Irish and International community. NOW IS THE TIME FOR THOSE , LIKE ME, WHO HAVE SAT ON THE FENCE TO ACT. Looking at the Belmullet gasline protest-it really took off once the state tried heavy handed tactics- and imprisoning people for protesting and defending sacred ground is not a crime but should be encouraged. I would appeal to anyone reading this to get involved now with the campaign and join in on any of the days of action. Also we should demand the immediate release of the four prisoners- this is an attack on our democratic right to protest against illegal state activity- I undertand that a dierective of the EU has declared that the driving thorugh of the M3 Motorway though sacred Celtic lands is illegal-this needs persuing through the courts and an injunction put into place to put a halt to this act of vandalism. However, this can be a costly and timeconsuming process. Also, like the Sioux did to protect their sacred Black Hills, we should get something throught Dail Eirann-to forever halt developmet on the sacreed heart of the Celts. I intend to contact the Sioux Nation and find out how they got this though the American congress. Meanwhile-I believe it's time to crank up this campaign by ten-taking nothing away from the people who have done so much work already and risked their own liberty in such a fine and noble way. We will fight on, we will speak for those imprisoned-our voice will only get louder. This is not the end-this is the beginning. Dave Michael.
