Republicans hit the streets to protest

While some cynics on this site doubted protests against the past injustices of internment and plans for 42 day detention without trial would attract much more than ‘two men and a dog’, activists from éirigí supported by members of other groups and non-aligned individuals turned out to make their voices heard in sizeable numbers at locations across Ireland.

While I previously noted the ‘politics of protest’ may be being discarded in some quarters in favour of normalization, for some a revival of street protest seems to be gathering momentum.
