This is a Peaceful Public Assembly outside the Department of Education offices in Marlborough Street, Dublin 1. D01 RC96.

The event is to highlight the need to protect our children from abuse in schools, via forced mask wearing, and from the introduction of vaccination for children between the ages of 12 and 15.

It is also in defense of our teachers & their working conditions, their physical and mental health damaged by having mask wearing imposed on them.

The time has come. Last year it was a conspiracy theory. Now a vaccine passport society is upon us. New Zealand has already crossed the line to enforcing it and has entered the land of tyranny.

The call is loud and clear. They want you to be vaccinated in order to travel and very soon it will be for attending outdoor events. It is no longer hidden. Next step will be for shops, pubs and restaurants. And all for a flu like disease for which there is a 99.99% survival rate. This is the blueprint for total control of your life. And it is time to put a stop to it. read full story / add a comment

RiseUp Éireann, It’s time now to take action, peacefully for this social gathering.

RiseUp Éireann invites Everyone to come to this social gathering ...Uniting together, to create solutions to end Lockdown, & to come together peacefully, to celebrate life, claim our Freedom, with artistic expression through Culture & CommUnity.

Please share this event far & wide, invite everyone, help spread the message of Truth...

RiseUp Éireann was created as a response to create Solutions, to navigate the current draconian restrictions, that are being experienced on a worldwide scale.

The Irish Government has brought legislation in that goes against a democratic society, against Irelands constitution and more importantly, for RiseUp Eireann against inalienable human rights. Of which no Government has the right to remove. It’s crimes against humanity, & Tyranny.

We intend to use peaceful methods to express our voices for the type of society we wish to live in.

We do not promote violence and are non political & non religious. Spirituality & connection to God is welcome.

All welcome to Unite with RiseUp Éireann, & our extensive network.

Everyone welcome to be themselves, & to stand in their own beliefs, based on Truth, Integrity, Authenticity & Love.
RiseUp Éireann acknowledges that the world Governments are using psychological and germ warfare, with fear being their main weapon of choice.
We choose Love.

Due to the reluctance and active censorship of alternative narratives to the one they are expounding within their own literature and that of RTE the Governments media propaganda machine, we will utilise whatever means are available to get our message out. RiseUp will peacefully demonstrate through the arts. read full story / add a comment

Join us on Sat 3rd Oct at the rally at the Customs House, Dublin to protest against Oppressive Government Restrictions and Mandates and reject the new abnormal. Governments everywhere have made a grab for total power and are imposing Orwellian conditions over us since this Covid thing started last March. Governments are not in the habit of giving up power and must be challenged. Most people are just going along with the rules thinking that somehow it is all going to be lifted. It is not. It will only be lifted if the public show they don't accept them. It is time to stop sitting on the fence and getting up to make a difference. read full story / add a comment

How times have changed. In the space of a few weeks ordinary things like going to the beach or swimming have become illegal activities, criminal acts. We have sleep walked into a police state and we are clapping our way through it.

We are told that the lockdown will have to continue indefinitely. We are told there will be more rounds of Covid-19 each worse the next. This is completely counter to most diseases which get milder over time. We are told when the lock down lifts, groups no larger than 10 will be allowed. What does that mean for flying, going to the theatre, cinema, concerts, football matches. Going to the beach, staying in a hotel.

Actually it’s pure crap and if we don’t wake up and reject this bullshit, we are totally fucked.
