Our people have right to protest

Is it any wonder that the Irish people have been so supine and acquiescent in the face of government measures that have ruined the country?

On at least three occasions, peaceful protesters have been batoned, kicked or thrown to the ground by aggressive garda officers. Is this an official policy to humiliate and cow people?

May I remind the Government, and the gardai, that we, the people, are the sovereign of this country. We pay their wages and they are our servants, not the other way around.
