More than 200 protesters demonstrated outside RTE headquarters, accusing the broadcaster of ‘bias coverage’ of the anti-water charges movement.
The main gate of the Dublin campus in Donnybrook has been closed off by security while the protest is carried out.
Eye witnesses said there was a small Garda presence overseeing the 200 demonstrators, and that those involved had acted in a “quite peaceful manner”.
The station’s employees have been asked to leave by the Ailesbury Road entrance as this has been left open by the protesters.
A number of campaigners have accused the national broadcaster of bias against the anti- water charges movement over recent months.
There was some criticism of Ryan Tubridy’s Late Late Show interview with Anti-Austerity Alliance TD Paul Murphy last month – with some viewers saying the presenter’s approach was over-the-top.
Protesters, escorted by Garda, will form a motorcade to travel to Mounjoy after the RTÉ protest to hold a candle light vigil for the five water protesters jailed last month for breaching a court order not go within 20 metres of installation of Irish Water meters.
