Statement from one of the occupiers at Occupy Dame Street…Please Share widely
We are 6 weeks at Occupy Dame Street and it looks like residents of the camp are going to be taking a break at the residence of hotel Mountjoy Prison 😛 Occupy Dame Street has today learned from media organisations and An Garda Síochána that the Central Bank of Ireland plans to seek a Court Order tomorrow morning in an attempt to stop the legal, legitimate and law abiding protest taking place. We have at all times sought to engage the banks in constructive dialogue about our concerns about the plight of the Irish people and society and remain ready to do so. The campers intend to seek audience at the hearing and stand up for their rights to protest peacefully in what is considered a public place. We need people at the four courts in the morning, Monday the 21st of November 2011 at 9.30am, for support. Meet outside the main entrance. See facebook event. #OccupyDameStreet is a people’s movement, which stands in solidarity with and is inspired by nearly 1000 sister occupations in the evolving global movement initiated by the people of Iceland, Greece, Spain, and Tunisia. We use tactics of non-violence akin to the 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.
