OCCUPY DAME STREET RESPONDS TO INJUNCTION CONCERNS
Acting on credible information Occupy Dame Street issued a call last night to request support in the event of possible court action today. As of yet no legal action has been initiated. We have engaged legal council who will advise us going forward. We would like to thank everyone who supported us in person at the Four Courts, on Dame St., and online.
Occupy Dame Street is very concerned about the current worldwide clampdown on non-violent resistance movements from the clearing of Zuccotti Park, NYC and the pepper spraying of peaceful protesters in University of California at Davis, through to the brutal and horrific suppression of peaceful protesters at Tahrir Square in Egypt. Occupy Dame Street stands in solidarity with our sisters and brothers worldwide.
These are extraordinary times which call for extraordinary actions. We call on the people of Ireland to be vigilant regarding the suppression of the right to peacefully protest. Should legal action be brought against us, we assure the people that we are prepared. We ask you to be ready to mobilise in the event of any attempt to clear the camp.
There are no upcoming events.View Calendar »
Statement#OccupyDameStreet is a people’s movement, which stands in solidarity with and is inspired by over 1,400 (Occupytogether.org 15/10/11) sister occupations in the evolving global movement initiated by the people of Iceland, Greece, Spain, and the Arab Spring. We use tactics of non-violence akin to scenes of peaceful resistance in Tahrir Square and Wall Street. This is a diverse people’s initiative, unaffiliated with any political parties. We are the 99%. We stand together against political and economic corruption. We stand for equality and social justice. This is a "leaderless resistance movement" with people of many nationalities, backgrounds, genders and political persuasions.
