I was at it and for what it's worth it was a good enough demo but it was only really about the size you'd normally get when the demos outside City Hall were a regular first Monday in each month thing. Maybe a bit bigger.

It concerns me that since the massive, 3,500 strong march thru the city following Joe's arrest the numbers turning out on marches have been steadily dropping. And don't think the media hasn't been using this against us.

Protests and marches for the sake of it or to 'keep momentum' will only see people being fatigued earlier.

Maybe we need to build to a big show of strength demo and I'd suggest we do one for the release of Joe and Clare. Lets face it, they're going to do their full whack. But they also have celebrity and massive name recognition now.

A welcome out demo for the two of them, well advertised in advance, could be a significant show of strength for the campaign, one that frankly, it badly needs.

The Dublin Trades Council have called for a demo on saturday at 12 noon, going to Mountjoy. I don't know where it starts from though (anybody?). This will be a good opportunity to put pressure on the union leaders to put their money where their mouth is. Begg may even have the cheek to speak.

From the photos it looks like another hijack from SF.

author by Januspublication date Tue Oct 07, 2003 18:46author address author phone Report this post to the editors

I noticed them too. Every time a photographer moved they'd move in order to get their pictures taken.

Or, more realistically, they were there, as they have been at every protest outside City Hall and the vast majority of them elsewhere with placards like many, many, many other people and parties.

Just because the photographer shoed a picture of them doesn't say they hijacked anything. For all we know, thousands of people were on the left hand side and the photographer didn't include them.

i saw shinners paying sp & swp members to carry sf placards!!!!!

they also bribed the photographer.

'I noticed them too. Every time a photographer moved they'd move in order to get their pictures taken.'

hardly. it was a crowded situation with little room to move on the sidewalk in front of City Hall. With the police barricades up and the car traffic heavy at that time of day it was impossible to get a medium distance shot.

No one got in my way on purpose - Sinner or SP or whoever. So, I went across the street to get some wide shots.

As for: 'For all we know, thousands of people were on the left hand side and the photographer didn't include them.'

the photos show the numbers visually, i think - 100+ or so?

As for 'Hijacking'.... i find this comment amusing. I'm not one to defend Sinn Fein (pro or anti, that is) but it seems to be the Dublin 'tradition' of certain groups (SWP, SP or SF) to give out massive amounts of placards on a given theme that happens to include their trademarks.

Nothing new about that.

I dont know if this particular demo was anymore of a SF event than other events have been SWP or SP etc.... its just the economics of which group had money to spend on placards and the organisation to distribute them to people who want a placard at the start of the demo.

No I was not bribed.

Although I don't mind being paid to take photos :-)

in pints, preferably.

judging from the fact that you complained on the editorial list about my comment above, i presume you took it seriously.

it was satire, i doubt if even a moron in a hurry would believe that you had been bribed or that spers were paid to carry sf placards.

(and people say that i dont have a sense of humour...)

My suggestion that the Shinners were moving about was ironic. Sometimes a photo gets taken and it seems to give one group or another prominence. Doesn't make for bias on the half of the photographer or suggest hijacking.

Well the first attempt to hijack City Hall occured at Easter 1916 when proto-Joe Higgins the famous "red" Mr. James Connolly went down Dame Street with a load of bolsheviks intent on occupying Dublin Castle, which rather thoughtfully had been left with only a handful of soldiers guarding it that weekend.
Unfortuanately though brave, the bolsheviks of Dublin in 1916 lacked military genius as much they lacked luck, and they failed to occupy Dublin Castle and stayed lurking in City Hall instead. This was a _grave_ tactical error, whilst their comrades up on Stephen's Green dug trenches and fed the ducks, (another _grave_ tactical error).

The second attenpt to hijack City Hall occured last year when the ipsiphi psychically influenced the aldermen and councilors to come to a 23 for 23 against stand-off.
This was a most important tactical step on the way to your future collective liberation for which you shall of course reward me richly.

It was Sean Connolly (no relation) who led the ICA to Dublin Castle in 1916. The Seamus lad was up in the GPO.
