The political establishment and the supportive media are desperate to tarnish the anti water charges movement as a violent, anti-democratic mob. By grossly misrepresenting and using what happened in Jobstown they want to weaken our democratic rights and so make it easier to impose economic inequality.
The laws used to directly seize the Property Tax from wages or benefits as well as the Financial Emergency Measures in the Public Interest (RDMPI) legislation used to rob the wages of public servants, show that this attack is real.
The definition of ‘false imprisonment’ is being changed and this affects you. Any temporary delay or obstruction at a protest or picket, which for example inconveniences a politician, could be deemed false imprisonment. This is about intimidating people and criminalising protest.
Please read this information booklet. If you agree that a miscarriage of justice is being prepared, help us because together we can stop this attack on democratic right and change Ireland for the better.
