Where are the Irish people?

The Euronews "WAKE UP IRELAND" protester

Why are these filthy scum not in prison? says his poster.

Where are the Irish people?

Well where are they, the country has lost its sovereignty, is being robbed blind and has the IMF forcing massive massive cuts, but where is the anger, where is the people fighting back???

The other day we saw, thankfully, some resistence from Sinn Fein, but at most there were 50 people. Perhaps things will change this Saturday, with the TEEU call for ‘civil disobedience'.

The Technical Engineering and Electrical Union (TEEU) have now officially called for ‘civil disobedience' to bring the government down and hope to build on this weekend's protests. Their general secretary has declared ‘we are on the brink of significant civil unrest in this country'.

Rise like lions!
http://riselikelions1.wordpress.com/

This blog is dedicated to collating and sharing information on resistance being organised by people up and down the country, in mass and individual capacities, against this corrupt government, the toxic banks and the IMF/EU bailout.

We hope that to motivate people by showing them that individuals and groups across the country are mounting acts of resistance. Hopefully, we can turn this anger into a sustained, mass campaign of civil disobedience.

Céad míle fáilte - To the IMF

We hope we meet you on the streets - To fight you to the death.
And we know how you got here - Back room deal and open arms
As you try to suck the life from us - With your structural reforms

They just lit a fuse - It's time for us to choose

You must think we're fucking stupid - Feed our fears with blocks of cheese
It'll take more than dairy products - To keep us on our knees
Don’t talk to us about violence - You hypocritical scum
Just look at all our hospitals - And the homeless on the run
Destitution politics - Death by credit card
By you can't kill the love we have - For justice in our heart

Cos they just lit a fuse - It's time for us to choose

We'll walk as we talk to create – And tear the bullshit down
We gonna build democracy and we'll do it town by town
And it ain't just for the Irish, English, Scottish or the Welsh
Injustice has no border – Our lives before their wealth

Céad míle fáilte - To the IMF
We hope we meet you on the streets - To fight you to the death.
And we know how you got here - Back room deal and open arms
As you try to suck the life from us - With your structural reforms

Where are the Irish people now that they should be standing up showing their anger ?

Sitting in their homes watching their wall screen televisions or on their computers , the idea of mixing has long gone because
lots of people refuse to go out due to the scourge of anti social behaviour for fear of the scum watching their homes if they even
dare to venture into 'the smoke free atmospheres' of the boozers.
Thats where they are because people no longer welcome people into each others homes , no conversation because the usual
conversation was full to overflowing with depressing news , oh , and another point worth mentioning , why should people get
out and protest when the gardai are kicking the bejazus out of Irish people , fully hidden behing their balaclava's for maximum
effect is the order from the Fianna Failures who have adopted the garret fitzgerald ' tripe ' of 'Let them Eat Cake' which when
analyzed could mean a lot more that we think .
I for one wish your campaign the best of luck , just be careful of the hidden dangers as you venture on with your worthy cause.

I think you need an all out strike, shut down the capital and overthrow the government. The ordinary people hear 'the politicians are corrupt' and 'we dont want a bailout' tell them we dont need it and why, its not our debt and we are under no obligation to pay it back.. and there is millions of euro in oil and gas off the west coast, this needs to be explained to the people clearly.. and a method of resolution more drastic than a protest every few weeks, you have to really show the politicians and Europe that we wont stand for this and arrange something phenomenal that will make the world take notice and embarrass them out of office.
