Before the big protest in Dublin started, little Portlaoise showed what they can do. Banners with a very important message at the roundabout in the city center, free people fighting in a peaceful way for the future of the next generations, many cheering horns from passing cars.
Ranging Grannies is a new protest in Galway initiated by a free woman, Carina Harkin. Protesters with the help of pots, pans, spoons, etc., make noise in places where the owners introduce discrimination and vaccine passports. In this way, they express their opposition and bring the problem of discrimination to the attention of the public.
I recently had the pleasure of broadcasting two such protests live. The first was at Saint Nicholas’ Collegiate Church and the second was at the Crane Bar. I must add that Carina showed remarkable courage during the first protest, where attendance was very low. You can see everything in the videos and photos below. Feel free to watch, comment and share.
For several months now, I have been participating in peaceful demonstrations, making live reports, photos and videos. Most of my broadcasts come from Galway, but sometimes I go to other cities in Ireland to show viewers the truth about peaceful protests. So when I was in the Cork area, I decided to take part in Boykott Clancy’s Restaurant.
Boykott took place on August 26, 2021, in front of the restaurant, in a very tight passage between the tables. A group of protesters, holding slogan posters, walked in front of the restaurant while Peter O’Donoghue spoke through a megaphone. Information leaflets were also distributed. One of the opponents of the boycott joined the protesters at one point, proclaiming that the “vaccine” is good. In my opinion, this man made an idiot of himself. You can see everything in the movie.
Boykott was peaceful and there were no dangerous incidents. The few masked Garda officers on site didn’t have much work to do. The protesters did a great job and I am very happy to meet and support them. Unfortunately, I must add that the customers of nearby restaurants still do not see the problem. They do not mind the division of people and sanitary segregation. We have a long fight ahead of us, but we will not give up.
It was a very interesting experience for me. The participants of the happening, dressed in white overalls and white masks on their faces, marched in silence through the crowded city center. They held sarcastic slogans in their hands – BE OBEDIBLE, WATCH TV, COOPERATE … Yes. They attracted attention.
People reacted differently. Some ridiculed the protest, others filmed and took pictures with curiosity, and still others supported the happening. What worried me? How many young people did not understand the message. Even so, I think a lot of people will start wondering about the current situation after what they have seen and may they wake up.
I want to thank the organizers and participants of this event for their great work. I hope that such protests will continue in our and other cities of Ireland, and I will be able to report on them. See you next time.
David O’Reilly asked me to record this interview. I agreed immediately. Two historians, Eugene Jordan and Brian Nugent, shed a whole new light on the tragic history surrounding Tuam Children’s Home in Co. Galway in Ireland.
The video that you are going to watch I have prepared for Hello Irlandia, an information site with which I work closely. I invite you to watch and comment.
