Should this violence be criticised?
It is clear that the governments is seeking to split the anti-water charges campaign by modifying the water charges and publicly attacking any violence surrounding the protests.
A public attack has been mounted by figures from the government parties against the Socialist Party because of the violence surrounding the protest against water charges in Tallaght.These figures, including Joan Burton, claim that the protest had a violent nature and that Joan Burton was subjected to a physical attack and intimidation by the protesters. The SP claims that generally the protest was peaceful and that a few non-protesters were responsible for the violence. It declares that it is against the use of violence such as water bombs being lobbed at government figures.
