The Dublin Grassroots Network has expressed concern at the
non-reporting of injures caused by the Garda attack on demonstrators on
the Navan road on Saturday evening. Aileen O'Carroll said: "The only
injury reported by the media has been the minor head injuries suffered
by a Garda. However several protesters had bones broken by the Garda
action and two more received serious head injuries. There may be
further injuries we have yet to hear about. "The media may be unaware
of these injuries because a large squad of some 50 Gardai denied
protesters with head injuries access to the Mater hospital on our
return to the city centre. This meant our own medical team, which
included a GP, had to treat the injured as best they could until they
could access the hospital after Gardai had dispersed.

"Our top priority now is the immediate release of all prisoners and the
dropping of charges."

Confirmed list of injuries to date:
1. One broken arm and three gashed arms that required stitches
2. One broken leg
3. One broken wrist
4. Two head injuries that required stitches
5. Broken fingers
6. One person knocked unconscious by water cannon
