If subjecting people to lectures that tell them their race is "a problem of our time" and mistreating them when they complain is not unlawful discrimination then anti-discrimination law is not fit for purpose.

Encroachment on the monument of Rath Lugh

category international | history and heritage | news report author Thursday April 17, 2008 02:58author by Nz63icid Report this post to the editors

Concerned citizens protesting against the ongoing destruction of tara and its Sacred Valley in County Meath in Ireland say that they have received reports of another possible push by SIAC/FERROVIAL thugs to destroy still more of the ancient Monument at Rath Lugh. They say that it is the intention of contractors to move a steel security fence that was erected during a recent Tunnel action.

People on the ground are concerned as the reports they have received suggest that the fence in question is to move back anything between 20 feet and 20 meters and further encroach on the monument of Rath Lugh. So obviously the moving of the fence by 20 meters is the worst case scenario. Such a move would mean that the security fence would be re positioned to the top of the Iron Age rath that makes up part of the National Monument in this beautiful corner of Co Meath.

They say that a likely day for this further work to destablise Rath Lugh's esker, and further desecrate and destroy this unparalleled National Monument is today April 17th. This was the date put forward by NRA officials during their negotiations with the Tunnel Protestor who had occupied a 50ft deep tunnel constructed to protect the now destroyed esker. Although the NRA official in question told outright lies during his negotiations with the Tunnel occupant, he and his colleagues did show plans for the construction work they intend for Rath Lugh. In addition to this they put forward the date of today April 17th as their intended start for demolition of the sensitive monument.

And so naturally Protecters on the ground have braced themselves for an attack on this date. Also an eviction process has started for the protest camp at the site by Coillte, and the timing suggests that it may have been begun as part of a co ordinated strategy by Government Department Agencies and the Gardai to help SIAC/FERROVIAL to continue to bulldoze their way through the building of this highly illegal road, already outlawed in the strongest possible terms by the EU.

Activists urge the media to be aware that there may be an attempt made to further damage Rath Lugh and they hope to successfully resist this using various SPECIALIST NON VIOLENT DIRECT ACTION techniques. Once again they wish to voice their concerns that the gravel hill that is Rath Lugh will be made to collapse by use of continued unsafe demolition practices. The foolhardy installation of a wooden crib wall, they say that similar walls have been constructed and subsequently collapsed in various developing world countries and Spain with massive loss of life.

But at least we'll have a shiny new McDonalds and a sparkling shiny IKEA at the end of a lovely double tolled four lane industrial estate so no need to worry. We'll all be able to consume our blues away with a nice bit of retail therapy.
