Veteran peace activist Ed Horgan defends himself in Court in Ennis today, for his ‘crime’ in attempting to search US military aircraft in Shannon earlier this year…report reproduced from his website…
I spent all day in Ennis Court today and this will be just the first of many days.
The magnificent movement of people power which exploded onto the streets across the length and breath of the country in opposition to Irish Water & water charges was an important development in our recent history. It channeled the anger and betrayal felt by citizens after years of neo-liberal policies and austerity budgets, the decimation of public services, & a race to the bottom in wages and conditions. It brought thousands of people into political activity for the first time. It showed that no government can rule without the will of the people, and that protest action can pay.
